Lower Norton Barn
About the home
Norton Barn has just undergone a complete refurbishment to offer an extremely spacious home. The proportions are huge with high ceilings, picture windows and stunning views of the lakes and farmland in the valley below. Tucked away at the end of a long track, this house would make a really lovely holiday destination.
The interior has been finished to a high standard with lots of exposed beams and oak flooring adding to the wonderful feeling of space. The furniture is an eclectic mix of styles giving a feeling of stylish comfort with cosy sofas grouped in separate seating areas taking full advantage of the amazing views.
The Lower Barn is on the ground floor but can be taken with the Upper Barn to sleep 12 if required. The kitchen is finished to the highest of standards with all possible machines and a breakfast bar with stools is ideal for a quick snack. In addition there is more formal dining for that special occasion.
There is plenty of parking for all and a shared south facing terrace area to the front of the barn has uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside.
This cottage has been rated 3 star by Visit Britain.

The South East England / Kent region
Kent is in the South-East of England and consists of many important districts such as Dartford, Maidstone, Ashford, Canterbury and Dover.
Canterbury inspired Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and William Golding worked in Maidstone.
Kent is easily accessible by road, sea or rail. Indeed, Dover is the closest point to France and remains a hub for ferry travel to the rest of Europe.

Brockhill Country Park
This is an area of the UK which contains many walking and cycling routes as well as over 1000 years of history.
The Canterbury area
Harbledown is a village within 2 miles of Canterbury city centre and was traditionally the last stopping place on a pilgrim's journey to Canterbury.
Canterbury is a lovely medieval city with the very best of both worlds! An historic cultural centre with two theatres, open air Shakespeare in the summer months in the stunning grounds of St Augustine's Abbey, river trips in punts and walking ghost tours of the City originally founded by the Romans.
There are many museums to visit and many historic places to visit with Kent having more castles than any other county in England!
The new Whitefriars shopping development offers a good range of boutiques and high street shops with the many smaller medieval streets surrounding the centre offering individual specialist shops.
For the ‘foodies', a trip to Whitstable, 5 miles to the north of the city is a must with its tradition of oysters; and of course being the ‘Garden of England', the organic fruit and vegetables on offer is second to none.
Riding is available at a nearby stables and there are lots of great walks from Norton Barn in the surrounding countryside. Bikes can be hired with several Byways offering excellent off road cycling including the Crab and Winkle way – a lovely cycle ride for all the family between Canterbury and Whitstable – with a beach and ice cream at the other end!
