The Property

Lenham Heath 0.5 miles. This charming, detached, stone-built barn conversion is less than three miles from the market town of Lenham. Hidden away in the Kent countryside, this lovely rural cottage offers couples a quiet and tranquil break from the hustle and bustle of modern day living. Very welcoming, this Lenham Heath cottage exudes warmth and character with exposed timbers, stripped floorboards, and a feature stone wall in the sitting room. There is also a double bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen with dining area, and sitting room with a woodburner-style electric stove and French doors leading outside. The patio area offers the perfect place for guests to relax and unwind with a cool drink after a day exploring the many historic towns and villages dotted across this part of Kent, or maybe to plan the day ahead over morning coffee. The numerous bridleways and footpaths that crisscross the fields and meadows are right outside the door of this Lenham Heath cottage, making a walk into this quaint market town a must during your stay. There is a wide selection of local shops including everything from grocers, bakeries and curiosity and antique shops, to a beauty spa, tea rooms, and pubs serving excellent food, not forgetting a weekly market with a wealth of local produce to peruse. Lenham Heath has a lot to offer but if you fancy a day away from rural life, the beautiful city of Canterbury, with its cathedral, theatres and river trips is only a short drive away, or perhaps a day across the Continent appeals? Venture from Ashford or Dover on the ferry and you can be ordering lunch at a bistro in France in just over an hour! With so much to do and so many places to visit, this Lenham Heath cottage is a perfect choice at any time of year.
