This lovely upside down, detached barn conversation is situated just 30 metres from the owner’s home, within the sleepy village of West Hougham, close to both Dover and Capel-le-Ferne.
Boasting a fabulous mix of contemporary design and rustic charm, this property has been lovingly renovated and is perfect for a couple or small family looking for a rural retreat, nestled within beautiful countryside.
With all but one of the rooms situated on the ground floor, guests can really make the most of the tranquil views of the countryside all around you.
There are two tastefully-furnished bedrooms, a twin and a king-size double, the larger of which benefits from French doors to throw open on a sunny morning and greet the day, whilst the stylish family shower room comes equipped with a walk-in shower.
The delightful open plan living area also has French doors, leading out onto a raised decked area, the perfect spot for reflecting on the day’s adventures.
Upstairs on the first floor there’s an additional sitting room, ideal for members of the party to retire to should they wish to relax in front of the TV, if they can tear themselves away from the stunning pastoral views, with Dover Castle in the distance.
Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the surrounding country is a walker’s paradise, with footpaths and trails leading across lush green fields and rolling hills.
Very close by is Capel-le-Ferne, home to the touching and informative National Memorial to the Few, a place to reflect upon, and learn about Britain’s air defences during WWII.
Just two miles away is Dover, for day trips across the Channel, as well as a wealth of cultural and historical attractions for you to enjoy, not forgetting the absolutely iconic White Cliffs of Dover.
With the golden sands of Margate also within easy reach, not to mention the historical city of Canterbury, Spitfire Barn is the perfect base from which to explore all Kent has to offer.

West Hougham is a lovely rural village, mid-way between Dover and Capel-le-Ferne, both places famous for their connections to some of Britain’s most important Historical events. West Hougham sits within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and it’s easy to see why as the landscape is awash with meadows, fields and woodland, offering visitors a whole host of walks and bridleways to enjoy, with leafy lanes aplenty for cyclists to explore. Very close by is the village of Alkham, with its winding river and a fine selection of pubs and restaurants. You cannot visit this part of Kent without a trip to Dover, with its gateway port and regular ferry trips to the Continent. Stroll along the promenade and inspect the figures of James Bond and others made famous by Ian Fleming who lived at St Margaret at Cliffe, a village that lies between Dover and Kingsdown. West Hougham is a great rural base from which to discover coastlines, beaches, quaint Kent villages, championship golf courses and the stunning countryside.
