Wander the woodlands, stroll along the stream, meander through the meadows… Then stop, look and listen to the wildlife all around you. You’re back at the heart of nature in your own country retreat.
When you arrive at your country retreat, it’s to discover that the English countryside has never looked so wonderful. Nor has so much nature ever been at your fingertips. 350 glorious acres of woodlands, meadows, hedgerows and a stream, all on your doorstep in the heart of Kent and ready for you to tour at your leisure. Take in the views of this pastoral paradise from every window and delight in the birdsong soundtrack that will play gently throughout your stay.
Stunningly restored, this 18th century barn was always going to be special. Set in complete peace and quiet in meadows and on the banks of a stream, country charm doesn’t get any better. Soaring oak beams rise up to your vaulted ceilings while oak floors come complemented with a touch of the Orient in plush Persian rugs. Bask in the warm natural light, flooding in at every corner and then admire the Milky Way in its full natural glory when the night draws in.
The open plan living on the ground floor offers one comfortable touch after another. You’ll nestle deeply into the sofas and plump cushions, relax into the sanug (with front-row meadow views) and dine finely at the rustic table. Snuggle up in front of the wood-burning stove when it’s chilly and enjoy creating a dish or two in the country kitchen complete with all mod cons and a Rayburn for that authentic rural touch.
When it’s time to retire, make your way up the custom-built oak staircase to two bedrooms, both fit for kings and styled in rustic elegance. The stunning views of nature accompany you here too – keep your bedroom window open just an inch at night to catch the trill of the nightingales.

Thank you for being an amazing host and letting us stay in your beautiful barn for the week. We had an amazing time and a wonderful, relaxing break. we thoroughly enjoyed our wild meadow and wetland safari tour, it was excellent!! Thanks again for a lovely welcoming 5 * stay
Just a note of appreciation for the fantastic stay and tour with valuable knowledge we gained. We valued this holiday to be the best for many years. So thanks again.
A lovely, relaxing week in a beautiful location. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm with us Philip.
A perfect say in a perfect location. Birdsong Barn is a spectacular place! The safari was really enjoyable. Philip was a brilliant host.
An absolutely wonderful stay in a beautiful barn on a stunning and peaceful reserve. Philip's nature safai is a MUST - just soak up his knowledge and experience. Lots of peaceful walks. One of the best bits is just the huge variety of birds on the feeders - may be 20 species. A perfect holiday!
Beautifully calm and peaceful. Phil and Maria were lovely. Phil's safari was a fantastic experience - we loved it! We can barely tear ourselves away - thank you so much for a wonderful holiday.
What a perfect holiday! Birdsong Barn is such a wonderful place to stay, both the house and the surrounding nature are amazing. Thank you for the hospitality. We hope to return!
A lovely quiet barn and owner very helpful. Especially enjoyed his tour of his land and being able to walk in his wild-flower meadow.
A wonderful cottage, in the middle of a quiet and relaxing natural reserve. The owner also gave us a tour of the estate, which was a wonderful experience and both we and our children learned a lot about nature and conservation. Inside the cottage everything is both cosy and high quality, with everything in place to start relaxing immediately. Really a place that we will visit again, next time for a longer period (this time we only had a weekend).
A fantastic stay!What a wonderful property. So so beautiful, amazing facilities and wonderful wildlife. The owner took us on a short tour and we saw wild horses. The surrounding area is also great to explore. Thanks for a brilliant stay!
Birdsong barn is so aptly named as that is what you constantly hear that & nature it’s a beautiful setting with no traffic noise whatsoever! Philip is so friendly helpful & knowledgeable & kindly showed us around the stunning nature reserve Philip even bought a fire pit for our visit as I called & asked if they had one so thank you very much we made good use of it I have a rule never to go back to a property but in this case I think we shall return as we would love to see the meadows in full bloom thank you Philip you have a very special place
Lovely property,would love to visit again
