Description

Peace and quiet of the Kentish North Downs

Podlinge is thought to be the site of a Saxon settlement, situated high up on the rolling North Downs in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Secreted away down its own private track, off a very narrow country lane, we nestle in the depths of the Kent countryside, yet just nine miles south of the Cathedral City of Canterbury. It's probably one of the most peaceful and rural situations in Kent and is a wonderful year-round retreat, ideal for couples, families or groups of friends.

Podlinge Barn is newly finished to a high standard and is now available as self-catering holiday accommodation. It has a light and contemporary feel with solid oak floorboards throughout, and every room enjoys stunning views across beautiful countryside.

Our location is perfect for those who love being out in the country, whether it be: walking, hiking or rambling; mountain-biking or cycling; bird watching; orchid spotting; or horse-riding.

Our nearest neighbours (both farms) are half a mile in one direction and a mile in the other ... so the only noise we hear is birdsong! Podlinge is a haven for wildlife. Badgers are regular visitors, as are woodpeckers and owls, foxes and occasionally deer. We are the highest point for miles and frequently enjoy dramatic sunrises and sunsets.

During your stay, you'll also have opportunities to explore some of Kent's prettiest villages, visit historic buildings, traditional seaside towns and other tourist attractions.

Location description from owner

The England region

The County of Kent is known as the ‘Garden of England’. Beautiful coastline and countryside, hop gardens, vineyards, oast houses, apple orchards, picture-postcard villages, windmills, nostalgic steam railways, historic castles, National Trust properties and ancient churches are just some of the many and varied attractions. It is steeped in history and heritage from pre-Roman times right through to exciting Turner Contemporary Art Gallery. Kent has everything for the discerning traveller, whether it be relaxing over a drink in a medieval oak-beamed pub; eating freshly caught Whitstable oysters; or letting the breeze refresh you as you walk amongst quintessentially English countryside.

Canterbury

Canterbury has a whole host of history and heritage for you to come and discover, such as: the Cathedral, St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martins Church. The city is home to one of Kent's most popular attractions, The Canterbury Tales. A stunning reconstruction of 14th century England follows Geoffrey Chaucer's colourful characters on their magical pilgrimage from London to the shrine of St. Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral. Strolling the narrow, cobbled traffic-free streets of one of England's oldest cities is an experience that will never be forgotten. Whilst shops and restaurants flourish in lively cosmopolitan counterpoint to Canterbury’s absorbing heritage.

Podlinge Barn, just 10 miles south of Canterbury, is located within the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is the perfect place to get away from it all. These dramatic chalk hills dotted with ancient beech woodlands, carpeted with grassland rich in wild flowers and native orchids, offer panoramic views over the hedgerows and medieval farmhouses and charming villages of the Kentish Weald. Walkers can follow well established trails to appreciate the views of this unique landscape.

“Beautiful house in Rural location”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2016

Located approx 25 minutes drive from Cantebury, this is an absolutely gorgeous house with every mod con provided. Kitchen/living room is a lovely, spacious family area. Owner, Nessa, was very helpful throughout,from booking to arrival, and provided a basket of goods,to help us settle in, including,we agreed, the nicest sponge cake we had ever tasted. Because our visit was in November, and the weather was less than kind, we didn't get to experience the walks etc all around the house, however we really enjoyed watching the wildlife,including, pheasants, squirrels and rabbits who wandered freely outside the house. If you want a quiet relaxing break it would be hard to see this location being bettered. Strongly recommended.

“A beautiful cottage in idyllic surroundings; the perfect escape!”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2013

From the moment we drove down the country lanes within a few miles of the property we knew we had picked the perfect holiday destination. Around each country bend was a new breath-taking view of open fields and unspoilt countryside. The converted barn was decorated beautifully and was well equipped with all modern conveniences. The views from the windows were glorious and we spotted lots of local wildlife such as rabbits hopping around the fields. Nessa and John were very welcoming and helpful and the gift package on arrival with homemade cake and a bottle of wine was a lovely touch. Lots of beautiful walks around the cottage, one leading to a local pub. Peaceful and tranquil, another world, but lots to do in the surrounding area too. We'll be back!!

“In the heart of Kent, a beautifully decorated, luxury, "get away from it all" barn that was truly homely,”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2013

Nessa, the owner; is the most welcoming, accommodating, lady. Our Easter trip was bitterly cold outside; but the wood burner meant that the living space was toastie. Which made it perfect to stay in and watch some dvd's which we had bought along; but there was no dvd player. The owners kindly went out and bought a dvd player the next day.

“Everything was perfect and Nessa and John had anticipated our every need!.”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2012

We had a most relaxing time and cannot wait to return. The area is so beautiful and the setting is like a dream with adorable farm animals on the fields and cute little rabbits running around, hoping not to be spotted. We also enjoyed popping to Canterbury for wonderful shopping over winding cobbled streets. Conveniently, one is never too far from a well stocked supermarket, so we were able to make some delicious meals in the barn's very modern, well equipped kitchen. We loved the area and especially, Podlinge Barn.
