318/300/318203 The Thatched Barn in Kent

Recently and thoughtfully converted to a high standard, this stunning, thatched 17th-century barn has a plethora of beams and vaulted entrance hall. Standing detached, it is ideally situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Smarden - whose name is derived from the Saxon &lsquo;Smeredaenne&rsquo;, meaning butter valley and pasture. The property has additional family room and an oak staircase which leads to a galleried mezzanine floor, where games facilities can be found. <br />Smarden was once a village thriving on the wool industry, and is now a sleepy backwater of old England, so classically Kentish that it is sometimes in film sets. In the heart of the village is a cluster of half-timbered houses with Kent peg tiled roofs. Golf can be found locally as well as fishing by arrangement.<br />For day trips, Sissinghurst Castle Gardens are well worth a vist, as are the vineyards at Biddenden. Leeds Castle is easily accessible and it closely resembles a fairytale palace, rather than a fortress. The fine aviary and maze are also sure to keep children interested and amused. There is easy access to Ashford, from where the Eurotunnel can be taken to enjoy lunch or dinner in either Paris or Brussels. <br />One of England&rsquo;s most venerable cities, Canterbury has much to offer, with many shops, restaurants and theatres. A former church, now called The Caterbury Tales has guided tours which lead through galleries and recount Chaucer&rsquo;s tales. Pub 1 mile._Entrance hall with vaulted ceiling and stone floor.
