The property

Manor Farmhouse is made up of three separate cottages located around a central courtyard in the centre of the lovely Kent village of Milstead.

Together they provide luxury holiday accommodation for family groups of up to eighteen people who are looking to stay in the heart of the Kent countryside.

Each cottage has its own distinct style and appeal, offering individual space for a family group who are looking for a little time to themselves.

The 15th century thatched Farmhouse is the centrepiece of the accommodation with its formal dining room which has a very large inglenook fireplace with original bread oven and salt store, and can seat all eighteen guests for a celebratory dinner.

The magnificent sitting room boasts two woodburners so that after dinner you can gather together to swap stories about your holiday.

The Farmhouse is packed full of character features with exposed wooden beams, huge fireplaces and an oil-fired range in the kitchen.

Stable Cottage is set all on the ground floor and is a perfect choice for less mobile guests as it features sloped access up to a wide raised decked area, just the place for a morning coffee.

The Barn is the place where all the lively entertainment takes place.

The large first floor cinema room can accommodate all eighteen guests so you can catch up with the latest movies, or just chill out in front of the large Smart TV.

Head downstairs and indulge in a game of snooker in the billiard room or just pick up a book from the extensive library in the sitting room.

The downstairs bedroom in The Barn also boasts a sauna, so after a long day exploring the Kent countryside, you can ease those aching muscles in comfort.

Step outside each of the cottages and you will find superb facilities.

Whether it is the private decked areas, or the wonderful landscaped two acres of gardens; you are sure to find a quiet spot to sit back and relax.

Everyone is bound to enjoy the superb outdoor heated swimming pool, which is surrounded by a paved patio, ensuring plenty of space for you to soak up the sun before a quick dip!

You can be forgiven for not wanting to venture out of Manor Farmhouse, but if you do, the local village pub is just a short stroll away.

Short drives will take you to the towns of Sittingbourne and Faversham, whilst the North Kent coast seaside towns of Whitstable and Herne Bay are easily accessible.

The historic cathedral city of Canterbury is just over a half hour drive away, where you can spend the day discovering its history, heritage and culture.

Manor Farmhouse is a magnificent destination for a family celebration at any time of the year.

About the location

MILSTEAD

Sittingbourne 3 miles; Faversham 8 miles; Maidstone 8 miles.

Milstead is a pretty village in the heart of Kent. The name is said to mean "Milking Place" which would account for the lush green fields that still surround it, making it an ideal place to stay if long walks and country pubs are on your holiday agenda. Milstead has remained relatively unchanged for centuries with a medieval church, large period houses and a village school dating back to 1848. The town of Sittingbourne is 3 miles away, whilst the medieval market town of Faversham, home to Britain’s oldest brewery "Shepherd Neame", is only a short drive away. If you are looking for a day out to remember, then make for the Cathedral City of Canterbury with its quaint shops, cobbled streets, theatres, restaurants, museums and river trips. Leeds Castle, said to be one of the loveliest in the world, is only a short drive away and is well worth a visit. So many places to visit, so much to see and do and all within an hour of Milstead.
