This large self catering Kent holiday home is situated in the small Kent village of Barham. Barham is located between the villages of Kingston and Elham , with a choice of gastro pubs including the Black Robin and The Duke Cumberland, both offering delectable bites and great English Ales.

There is also an extensive parish with a tea room and small shops, near to Canterbury, delightfully situated on the Dover Road, a little south from the Barham Downs, and surrounded with picturesque scenery and rural beauty.

Located equi-distant between Canterbury, Dover and Folkestone, making the village an ideal centre from which to explore attractive scenery and over 1,000 years of history.

The village dates back, at least, to its first mention in 799AD - and contains more than180 historic sites! Barham provided the home for one of the four knights who, in 1175, murdered St Thomas a Beckett in Canterbury Cathedral. As a result the family adopted the name of this village and descendants with that family name can be found in many countries of the world.

Nearby you will find Elham, a lovely traditional Kent village, with a shop, tea room, restaurants, pubs and a medieval church in the attractive village square - an ideal base for a visit to Kent.
