A glass of wine can be enjoyed on the decked terrace whilst watching the lambs at play, or trying to spot a deer. Malthouse Barn is 20 minutes from Canterbury, and the Channel Tunnel is 15 minutes away for the Eurostar to Paris. Take the fast train from Ashford and be at St Pancras, London, in just over half an hour. For a car free holiday, the owners are happy to collect and deliver guests to and from the station, and for sightseeing trips, you can take the train into historic Canterbury. Enjoy views from the decking down the valley which is occasionally visited by herds of wild deer. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is an orchid conservation area, and makes a lovely place to visit in any season. For flower lovers, there are great gardens to visit nearby including the famous gardens at Sissinghurst, Great Dixter, Bateman’s, Scotney Castle and Charleston. The town of Wye is 4 miles away and has a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs, with a farmers’ market every other Saturday. There are also two local pubs within walking distance. This is excellent walking terrain, and for the more daring, try hot air ballooning locally. Shop 3 miles, pub 1 mile.

“Quirky cottage, beautiful tranquil location and great spot for exploring the surrounding countryside. Some amazing bike rides. We would definitely return to the Malthouse.”

“What a lovely cottage, to wake up in the morning to hear just birdsong was lovely and to see the deer roaming freely was such a treat. The cottage is ideal for 2 people a little remote but that is not a problem if you want peace and quiet, this is the place to stay. It is very well situated for a trip to Canterbury or visiting the coast nothing was to far away. Would definitely stay again. Plus the owners were on hand if you needed anything.”

“Highly recommend Malthouse Barn, so easy to switch off & unwind, close to everything you need but so peaceful & relaxed. Well fitted & full of charm, just remember to take your own milk! Lovely hosts, good communication. Would happily book again.”

“This is a lovely quiet cottage, charmingly and even eccentrically furnished, with lots of space for a one bedroom cottage, with an absolutely gorgeous view. I really enjoyed sitting out and watching the sheep.”

“Stunning location. No light pollution so could enjoy some star gazing. Interesting collections in the cottage. Some does need a bit of a clean though.Very friendly welcome. Home made lemon drizzle cake was delicious but a pint of milk in the fridge would have meant a cup of tea or coffee on arrival would be possible. A lovely very quirky cottage.”

“Thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Very quiet and relaxing. Cannot fault the place. Car a must but central for great days out. Will definitely be returning as loads more to see.”

“A delightful out of the way cottage. The track to the cottage would prevent a low slung car getting to it, but normal car ok. The insulation is dated and the first couple of days it didn't get properly warm, (expected warmer weather) could have lit the wood burner.Lovely local walks across fields,through woods, and along narrow winding lanes. Local town of Wye about 3 miles away with food shops. Overall a great quiet retreat.”
