Moat Farm House

Ash, Kent

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.
From £3,530 for 7 nights

"Highly recommend the Moat Farm House. The House is beautifully kept inside and the garden and outdoor space is great. Keepers cottages gave some great local recommendations and were very helpful throughout the stay. Would certainly come back!"

Tom, Jan 2022

"A gorgeous period house set back from the road at the edge of a village. Lovely garden, with access to footpaths and trails right from the back gate in the garden. Huge, well appointed kitchen, and plenty of room for our two families with teenage kids and a dog. Modern showers and lighting, all very comfortable. Highly recommended if you’d like to experience period country living. Doggie was in heaven, compared to his normal mid-terraced London patio garden. A great base to explore the white cliffs, Canterbury, as well as the beaches in the north. Thank you for the lovely week that we were able to spend with some dear friends after many months of lockdown. We were pleasantly surprised by how well the kitchen was appointed and loved the access to paths and trails from the garden."

"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, Sep 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, Jan 2020
