Higham Farmhouse was recently renovated in 2010 and since entering the rental market has proved to be an ideal venue for many large groups whether it be for a family celebration for a notable birthday or wedding Anniversary or alternately University reunions, hen parties, stag parties or even a religious retreat. Higham has also hosted sewing, walking or bird watching groups.The high number of bathrooms is a particular advantage and the house provides spacious accommodation whilst retaining a real 'home from home' atmosphere.
With my husband and daughter we run a family farm in Kent. Higham Farmhouse was divided into two by my father-in-law and housed farm employees. In 2010 we found both halves were empty and took this opportunity to renovate this historic house. We now let the house in order to pay for the restoration and feel far more involved welcoming guests, than letting it out long term.
Clare Holdstock purchased this farmhouse in 1949
Absolutely lovely property with plenty of space to enjoy a great get away with friends and family. (We had 8 adults but the cottage could comfortably accommodate more).
Set in beautiful countryside, (flowers blooming outside the kitchen window in December!) this cottage is ideal for getting away from it all, but is still a manageable distance from Canterbury.
This property was exactly as described and much more besides. Bigger than it looks in the pictures and maintained to a very high standard. We loved the luxurious ensuite bathrooms. The whole place was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed, the log burners made it especially cosy in the evenings. A very good pub within easy walking distance too!
All in all this was an excellent place to see in the new year with friends and family, would absolutely recommend it!
...and the mince pies were a lovely welcome, thank you!
