About the location


Canterbury 7.4 miles; Dover 11.1 miles

Barham is a country village in the district of Kent, formed of two hamlets and enjoying a wonderful position near Canterbury and the south coast. It is the ideal village from which to explore fine scenery and over a thousand years of history. The famous and colourful city of Canterbury has cobbled streets and a long history, its cathedral being the oldest in England and well worth a visit. You will find cosmopolitan restaurants to dine out of an evening, or during the day you can choose to meander along the high street and enjoy a spot of shopping before having a light lunch at one of the traditional pubs. There are many walking trails within this city, eager to be explored by tourists visiting from far and wide, while the River Stour offers wonderful boat trips on which you can peruse Canterbury's ancient architecture and beckoning views. Blean Woods National Nature Reserve allows you to get lost in your imagination with miles of walking and cycling routes, a plethora of wildlife and 11 square miles of ancient woodland. You might be lucky enough to spot woodpeckers and nightingales as you wander through mature oaks in the Spring or late April and May, and be sure to look out for the for the rare heath fritillary butterfly during the Summer. If you fancy a day out to the coast, you have Whitstable, Herne Bay and Margate all within driving distance to the North of Barham, whilst the port town of Folkstone to the South, has an array of art galleries and a lovely harbour. Explore the 153 mile-long North Downs Way National Trail and its spectacular scenery, which stretches through two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and can be enjoyed at any time of the year. Barham is a lovely spot for a holiday in Kent.
