Peacefully set within Kent’s 45-acre Great Field Farm, you’ll discover Bumble Barn ready and waiting to welcome you.
Distanced between the coastal market town of Hythe, and the quaintly medieval city of Canterbury, this really is the ideal location to explore the very best of the county that’s often referred to as the ‘Garden of England’.
There’s just one problem: to enjoy the area at its fullest, you’ll have to tear yourselves away from Bumble Barn first!
Striking and futuristic in design, the ground-level eco-home sleeps up to six guests, which makes this an ideal setting for a ‘get away from it all’ family break.
Purposefully equipped with a wealth of cutting-edge eco-friendly features, including a green roof, infra-red underfloor heating, and smart energy sensors, this is a holiday haven that’s as sustainable as it is comfortable.
Relax with a welcome drink in the gorgeously open living area, complete with panoramic, scenery-showcasing window and French doors that allow daylight to flood inside. On sunny days, you might prefer to head out of those doors and onto the furnished patio (tip: this is a great spot for sunset-watching!)
There’s a well-equipped kitchen area and a separate dining space, with plenty of room for everybody to break bread as you catch up on the day’s events.Keep reading
