    > This beautifully restored Grade II listed thatched barn dating back 300 years, has been divided into two beamed holiday cottages which reside in the grounds of the owners’ 500-year-old home Boyke Manor, where the great grandfather of Edward Elgar once lived, situated in the unspoilt Elham Valley, an AONB. Activities in the area include walking, horse riding, cycling, wildlife viewing, golf, beaches and art and crafts. Canterbury, great for shopping and sightseeing, and Dover, ideal for day trips to France, are both 20 minutes away. There is a fast train link to London (55 minutes). Shops ½ mile, pub 1 mile.

    Blackbird Cottage (PLLP) can be booked together with Wren Cottage (PLLT) to accommodate up to 10 guests, with seating space for all guests at Wren Cottage.

    A beautiful barn conversion in large and beautiful gardens belonging to a stunning manor house, immaculately clean on arrival and with every type of bedding, towels, kitchen equipment etc. Even more lovely than in the photos. Our hosts were very friendly, even taking us to one of their neighbours so our 1 year old daughter could see their chickens. The property itself was very quiet and there were lovely views of the gardens and, from the double bedroom we could see the cows and sheep grazing in the valley. We were only a 10 minute drive from the M20 and from a large Tesco in Folkestone but perfectly placed to go to other places too (e.g. Canterbury, Deal and Margate all being between 25 and 35 minutes drive).

    This was our second stay in this cottage and it was just as wonderful as it was 3 years ago. We love everything about this cottage. It's comfortable, charming, well-equipped and spotlessly clean. The garden is so pleasant and we love the views from the bedroom windows. The owner is so helpful and welcoming. We would definitely like to return again one day.
