The Granary is a luxurious self catering holiday cottage for 4 in a haven of peace and tranquillity. Situated outside the village of Waltham near Canterbury, 17th. century Yockletts Farm is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty over looking Yockletts Bank nature reserve with its wonderful orchids, wildlife and footpaths. The farm itself is mainly laid to arable, once being hop gardens, with the remains of an old twin kiln coast of years gone by. We graze cattle on the gently sloping fields, with plenty of easily accessible footpaths all around so you can enjoy some of the most beautiful views in Kent. It is also a wonderful area to cycle or horse ride. Canterbury is 5 miles away, Ashford about 10 miles and the Channel Tunnel rail link is about 15 minutes drive. There are a number of excellent pubs within easy reach, all offering good food and beer. There is also a post office and general store with newsagent in Stelling Minnis village.

It is everything it says it is and more
We had a wonderful week at Granary Barn, so peaceful and quiet but very easy to get to Canterbury and many other places of interest. Jo was friendly and helpful, the cottage was comfortable, well equipped and spotlesly clean. I could happily recommend it to anyone.
Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure having you to stay, so glad you had a lovely holiday with us 😊
What a lovely cottage!
A wonderful holiday in a very luxurious barn conversion.
Luxury & Tranquillity
Very comfortable & luxurious accommodation. We were warmly greeted by Jo and from that moment we felt at home in the extremely cosy and well appointed accommodation located in the quiet and beautiful Kent countryside. We certainly hope to return, perhaps when the weather is a little less inclement, as it positioned within easy reach of Canterbury, Hythe and Folkestone. Brian & Sue.
Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure having you to stay. We very much look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Kind regards Jo

A very warm welcome from superb hosts. Lovely, well-kept property which was very comfrtable. Very good access to Canterbury and the surrounding area. We had a fantastic holiday and would recommend this property to all.
Thank you so much, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Granary.
Great Holiday !
We visited The Granary this January and had a wonderful time. Beautifully decorated and immaculate throughout I could not find a fault. The owners made us feel most welcome and went to the effort of recommended a number of good local pubs and restaurants as well as things to do in the nearby Canterbury. Tucked down a peaceful and quiet lane it was the perfect little getaway but only 15 minutes from the town which had plenty to see and do. We will definitely be coming back !
Thank you. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us so much. Looking forward to welcoming you back again.
