Cosy hayloft.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the hayloft twice and enjoyed it. The hayloft is nicely furnished and well looked after. It's great to be able to walk around the corner to visit the farm animals.

Joanna is a very professional host. We have felt welcome and in very good hands. We highly recommend the hayloft.

Charing isn't far away from Dover so you can get there quickly after arriving in England. There's a nice Sainsbury's in Ashford.

Very beautiful place in a calm and amazing fields surrounding. BBQ place availible. Close to the farm with all the animals. A welcoming hamper with local food was superb. I definitley will try to go there again. Perfect stay with kids. The landlord was very helpful and friendly. I love the place and definitley recommend others to try it. The place was not far from beautiful places like Dover beach, Folkstone, Sissinghurst gardens etc

relaxing stay on a small farm

  • 5 of 5

Its our second time staying here, its a small , cozy cottage away from the hustle. But, not to far to travel for sights. Brilliant location just off the A20 between Maidstone and Ashford.
