City of Canterbury Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse in Canterbury, Kent, England - Working Farm Location,farm Tours Available

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.

About Clare Holdstock

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
