This holiday cottage combination is quite literally breath taking with spectacular rooms heavily beamed, contemporary touches and a bespoke table to seat all your guests in the wonderful dining hall. These rural cottages are surrounded by farmland. Ideally located just an hour and half from London and close to both historic Faversham and the popular seaside town of Whitstable there will be lots to do during your stay! Each property has been immaculately furnished and finished to the very highest standard. The spacious accommodation combines the wonderful original features of the converted barn; period beams and cosy log burners, with stylish modern twists. Great Higham Barn is a truly stunning barn conversion of a very early Kentish barn dating from the 1600's. The rooms make the most of the wonderful oak beams found throughout the building and a mixture of contemporary and antique furniture adds a quirky but comfortable touch. Large plush sofas abound in the seating areas which are scattered throughout the building so groups can sit and share those special holiday moments whether in the kitchen, the galleried play area or the more formal sitting room. A particular feature of the barn is the annexe which can be used as part of the barn (it has an inter-connecting staircase) or separately with its own front door – ideal for members of the party who perhaps are looking for a little privacy. The very spacious excellently equipped kitchen and cooking area is split into areas at the heart of the building, ideal for preparing for even the largest of weddings or holiday parties.
