About the property

Set in the depths of the rolling Kent countryside, Great Higham Barn is a stunning period barn - ideal for large parties, group accommodation or wedding venue beautifully furnished with wonderfully spacious rooms. This group holiday accommodation is quite literally breathtaking with huge rooms, heavily beamed, contemporary touches and a bespoke table to seat all your guests in the wonderful dining hall. This Kent holiday house is in excellent condition throughout with several seating areas, games area, playstation, enormous kitchen with space for all, swimming pool, tennis court and a large garden.

For larger parties, combine the other barns in the complex to sleep up to 44. There are several seating areas for all ages throughout the barn, from a group of bean bags to squishy comfortable sofas. A particular feature of this holiday barn in Kent is the contemporary glass staircase which sheds light throughout the Barn and makes for a wonderful party space. The accommodation also comes with an annexe, which can be used as part of the Kent barn (it has an inter-connecting staircase) or separately with its own front door – ideal for members of the party who perhaps are looking for a little privacy.

There is a very spacious kitchen which has every conceivable machine imaginable and is split into areas, with an excellently equipped cooking area in the heart of the open plan space, ideal for preparing for even the largest of parties. There is both formal and informal eating areas, comfy sofas, and the utility area tucked away.

This self catering holiday barn is surrounded by Kent woodland and fields with lovely views of the countryside from many of the rooms and an eco hot tub for you to enjoy.. There is parking for several cars in the driveway of this holiday barn in Kent with a private garden surrounding the holiday barn with the shared use of an outside heated swimming pool (summer only), and tennis court within the complex to enjoy during your stay.

All in all, a truly stunning cottage with hot tub, ideal for the larger parties with enough space to give everyone the chance to relax, unwind and above all enjoy!

If you can tear yourselves away from this wonderful spot and all on offer at the barn then there is lots to see and do in the area. Leeds Castle with Go Ape, Segway and the stunning grounds itself is within 20 minutes, Canterbury Cathedral and St Augustines Abbey are also within easy reach and if you fancy a brewery tour, Shepherd Neame is based in nearby Faversham.
