Bumble Barn was named after its shape… of a bumble bee!

As well as an amazing shape, this eco barn has a stylish interior and a setting which will also capture your heart, with a stunning view over the patio to open countryside.  The barn, which sleeps six, is set in a peaceful and secluded hamlet along the old Roman road between coastal Hythe and medieval Canterbury and is perfectly located for exploring the countryside, whilst the seaside and Canterbury are also within easy reach.  The open living space and bedrooms are all beautifully presented and ensure this unique space offers comfort and versatility for friends and family looking for somewhere special to stay.

Dandelion Seed Head - David Wanostrocht

After another year of simply stunning, high-quality entries we are delighted to announce the winners of our annual wildlife photography competition. 

A close-up photo of a dandelion seed head has taken the crown as Kent’s nature photograph of the year. The prestigious award was made to Mr David Wanostrocht of Orpington who took the prize-winning shot in his back garden.

The judging panel was unanimous in their verdict that Mr Wanostrocht’s image should win the competition outright.  Mr Wanostrocht wins a two-night break in a country cottage courtesy of Kent and Sussex cottages, main sponsors of the competition.
