Hop Farm is a charming farmhouse with all modern amenities, dated 1715 with use of a full-size heated indoor pool, 6 bedrooms, four bathrooms and parking for 10 cars.
Hop Farm is brilliantly situated in the back-of-beyond real farming country of East Kent, yet it is less than 2 hours from London by car, 1 hour by hi-speed train, within 30 minutes of the Channel Tunnel and Ferry ports, and 45 minutes from Ashford for Eurostar (Paris or Brussels 2 hours).
Hop Farm has a beautiful all-weather heated swimming pool for your exclusive use, Wi-Fi, barbecue, with seating up to 16, and two table tennis tables.
There is also a 5-a-side football pitch and up to six old bikes on request ( including a bicycle made for two!). Please bring your own cycle helmets.
Next to Hop Farm is our beautiful, private grass tennis court which we can share with you. Just ask when booking should you wish to use it. You will need to bring your own racquets, tennis balls and tennis shoes. Being grass, the court is closed October to May.
Hop Farm is surrounded by fields and lovely Kent orchards which are ideal for country walks, including a half-hour one through lovely orchards and fields to our local pub, The Rising Sun.
Interesting places to visit nearby include historic Sandwich (with several golf courses including the world-famous Royal St George's Golf Club) and Canterbury with its world-renowned Cathedral, city walls and designer shopping and the nearby vineyards for Kent wine.
There are many children's attractions very near, including Wingham Wildlife Park, the famous Howletts Zoo, Roman Richborough Castle and Ramsgate, Margate and Deal beaches. Dover Castle, the second-biggest fully-intact castle after Windsor, is always a hit with children.
Hop Farm offers accommodation for normally 12 persons. Extra guests up to a maximum of 16 are charged at a nominal rate of £40 per person per night for which they are provided with sleepover beds. Babies in arms are free of course.
