Cork Farm,
Long Hill, Old Wives Lees,
Nr Canterbury,


This romantic old property dating from the 17th century, has been renovated to a very high standard and opened in March 2007. It is flanked on one side of the farmyard by a thatched barn and on the other by a traditional 17th century Kentish farmhouse. Flint Cottage has been awarded a four star rating by the English Tourist Board.

The centrally heated accommodation is open plan and comprises a bedroom with a King size double bed, a lounge with sofa, easy chair, coffee table, TV/DVD player, Radio/CD, fully equipped Kitchenette/Diner with Electric Oven & Gas Hob, Microwave, Dishwasher, Fridge/Freezer, Sink and drainer. There is a separate luxury bathroom with shower area, bath, washbasin and w.c. a washing machine/dryer is also situated in this room.

Outside, between the cottage and the thatched barn, there is a small paved garden area with garden furniture and a barbecue.

Bedlinen and towels are included in the rental as are Electricity and Gas.

Parking for one car is provided on hard standing next to the cottage. We regret that, as this is a working farm with sheep and horses, we cannot accommodate pets or young children.

17th century Cork Farm is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the North Downs Way, half a mile from Chilham with its famous medieval square and castle, and five miles from both Canterbury and Faversham in the charming Kentish hamlet of Old Wives Lees.

The farm has an orchard of about 220 apple trees mainly Bramley and Worcesters. Sheep and horses graze in our extensive paddocks. There are walks through our woods, locally in Perry Wood, and of course we are located right on the North Downs Way, one of the old Pilgrim's routes into Canterbury which is about 7 miles distant. An easy two hour stroll if you have the energy!

Ashford is 10 miles, and Dover port and the Channel Tunnel are both 15 miles away. Central London is a one hour train journey from Faversham with a service peaking at four trains per hour.

There is a public house in the village, two public houses with restaurant facilities in Chilham, two post offices, a general store, and a newsagent within a mile radius.
