Moat Farm House is located in Ash, Kent, a pretty village between Sandwich and Canterbury. This pet friendly, large farmhouse sleeps 14 people in 7 bedrooms with 6 bathrooms and a large garden, making it perfect for family get-away's.

Moat Farm House is an exquisite Tudor farmhouse recently beautifully and lovingly restored and refurbished to emphasise and enhance the wonderful period features. The generous accommodation provides seven bedrooms and six bath/shower rooms (four en suite), a huge vaulted farmhouse kitchen, a secondary kitchen and three reception rooms. The house is beautifully furnished throughout with a combination of antiques and more modern pieces, all selected and arranged with great care and skill. Set in 6 acres, it is surrounded by its own land. The large garden is a joy with deep borders containing mainly country cottage-style plants and with views of the church and surrounding countryside. There are several seating areas to choose from and a large table outside the folding doors of the kitchen seating sixteen people, with an option to seat more at other tables. The Weber grill can be wheeled to wherever you need it. Outside, a thatched barn contains an attractive games room with table tennis, darts and table football which is very popular with the younger generation wishing to hang out separately from the main house.
The exceptional kitchen has been significantly extended by the current owners and is extremely spacious, modern and well equipped. To the west are folding doors leading to the lawn and garden and the large outside table.
There are three ovens (one a Siemens fast heating tower oven) and a wood-fired eco-range. This provides a glass-fronted wood-burning stove for the cooler months. There is also a large integrated microwave.
There is a triple sink with detachable tap, two dishwashers, Quooker constant boiling water tap, Fisher and Paykel fridge freezer with an ice maker and cool water filter. There is a larder with plenty of space for food storage, a wine cooler and a six ring gas hob.
The recycled quarry tile floor has underfloor heating. The original Tudor bricks on one of the walls have been exposed to wonderful effect.
This leads off the kitchen and can be a useful place to store bags, computers etc out of the way.
A very few steps away across the drive is the newly built utility room/boot room. This has a washing machine, dryer, another dishwasher, triple sink and a very large ceiling pulley drying rack. There is plenty of space for boots, coats etc. There is also a large extra deep freeze and overflow fridge.
A beautiful room with the original Tudor window to the rear, exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace containing a wood burning stove, a "smart" TV and three large comfortable sofas.

This home is beautiful and spacious. Huge kitchen/dining area, two very large family rooms and beautiful grounds. All rooms either have an en-suite or a bathroom right outside the door. There is a granny annex for a lucky couple as well with their own living space/kitchen. The house is walkable to a little coop, boots and a pub - and a short drive to a local farm shop. Great location and wonderful home. Ms G Field, September 2020
A groups of adults visited in January to enjoy the open fires and the countryside. We felt at home straight away, the house is clearly loved and furnished tastefully. Everything we needed for a fabulous weekend. There is so much space and the kitchen is huge. Perfect for those who love to cook and great for a large group. We had fun in the games room and the local area is worth exploring if you can drag yourself away from the fire and the sofas. We’d love to come back, thank you. Liz and friends, January 2020
