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.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Birdsong barn sleeps 4 in 2 spacious bedrooms, both with king size beds and generous en suites. Further sleeping accommodation is provided in a comfy sofa bed and there’s a downstairs wet room.
Birdsong Barn has been carefully and tastefully renovated. It looks beautiful with rich oak floors and oriental rugs. The handmade beds are superbly comfortable. The real joy is the peace of being in the middle of a natural conservation area with its wild flower meadows, wetlands, wild horses and birds' song. It is down the end of an unadopted and rather rocky road so don't give up - there is ample parking and turning space once you reach the barn. We enjoyed the thoughtful hospitality of the owner of the barn. Anyone looking for a stress-free holiday would be amply rewarded.
A beautiful property, furnished to a very high standard with very comfortable beds and a well-equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the peaceful setting and all the wildlife. The owner was helpful and attentive and gave us a fascinating tour round the nature reserve.
Thank you so much for such a joyous and relaxing holiday at Birdsong Barn. We have had the best time - the ride around your property and swim was incredible!
We have enjoyed our stay in Birdsong Barn and the kind hospitality extended by Philip & Maria. The design and detail of fittings is to be commended, making Birdsong Barn truly incredible, added to which our trip round the conservation area has made our stay really special. Look forward to visiting again in the near future. Many thanks.
Thank you Philip for your generous hospitality. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Birdsong Barn, would recommend to anyone. Your dedication to the environment is fantastic and we wish you and all your family all the best for the future.
We very much appreciated the high quality of Birdsong Barn, its tranquility and nature around. The Estate tour was very informative and enjoyable.
Thank you Philip for being such a generous, knowledgeable and helpful host. A rare haven for all species, including us! May all your wildlife efforts be rewarded and all the cows, sheep and horses remain upright and out of the ditches.
Thank you for a wonderful week - perfect, peaceful location. Enjoyed the work experience as shepherds and herding the cattle! Hopefully we'll be back.
Birdsong Barn is a haven of peace and tranquility, thank you for a wonderful week. I can't think of a better place to find ourselves in lockdown. Thank you also for your time and enthusiasm in showing us round your land, we felt very privileged (and the jeep is great fun!)
