Hegdale Barn

Challock, Kent

A secluded countryside retreat for couples (+ 2 kids) - country-rustic, comfy & cosy. Faversham is close & you can walk to a good pub


1 bed


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


At the end of a leafy lane: lawns, paddocks, woods, no neighbours. A gravelled drive sweeps up to a Tudor farmhouse, then round to Hegdale Barn. Owner Victoria welcomes you in, to a charming converted brick barn dripping with honeysuckle, meticulously and sympathetically restored. The living space is airy, white and bright, with everything new including the floor, and restored windows and high beams add character. It’s perfect for a couple, or a family of four, thanks to a new sofabed, crisp and comfortable like all the rest. There is a built-in wardrobe in the bedroom, Romney Marsh lotions by the bath, and local treats in the welcome basket (cake and apple juice from Challock farm shop, eggs from the family’s eight hens). You can walk to Challock, it’s only a mile; there’s a pub there too, and gliding for the adventurous. You’re brilliantly placed for exploring coast and country: the Pilgrims Way is two miles; the Archbishops Palace is up the road; Leeds Castle is a hop away, Whitstable not much further. Come home to your own outdoor space: barbecue, dining table and arbour bench, all lovely and secluded.

The most beautifully appointed barn with so many historic houses, gardens and towns close by. The warmest of welcomes and the happiest of stays.

Denise, Aslackby

We really enjoyed our stay at Hegdale Barn. It's a beautiful cosy yet modern barn conversion with everything you need. We stayed with our 6 month old baby and the barn was ideal. The location is fantastic very rural and peaceful. The owners are very friendly and accommodating, We will be returning soon!

We had the most wonderful stay at Hegdale Barn in Challock! The barn is perfect - the bed and lounge are so comfortable and warm. The Barn has all that you would want including the little touches like amazing shower/bath, central heating, lovely kitchen, information on the local area & beautiful natural light. The barn is in a wonderfully secluded spot but has very easy access to the village & walking paths for strolls and longer rambles across the countryside to the numerous pubs for lunch and a tasty beverage! We highly recommend and look forward to staying again on our next visit to England

Helen, Sydney

Lovely cottage and location - the photos don't really do it justice!

  • Faversham (15 Minutes) a historic market town, Shepherd Neame Brewery Tours, Friday & Saturday markets and monthly Sunday Antique and collectable Fair. Walk down Abbey Street to the Creek to explore further Antique shops and a garden centre and tea room.
  • The delightful Leeds Castle is 20mins away with 500 acres of beautiful grounds, maze, grotto and castle. Belmont House is a peaceful Georgian mansion and gardens reached in 15mins. Godinton House is just 20mins with marvellous guided tours and antiques.
  • Visit Whitstable (25 Mins) Oysters on the seafront, lovely shopping and pubs, Castle tea rooms and playground, Harbour market stalls and fish and chips. Or Hythe (25 Mins) with shopping, tearooms, Romney & Dymchurch Railway, riding, scooting and sailing.
  • St Margarets, Deal, (40 Mins) a pretty pebble cove with a pub on the beach! Lovely walking along the Whitecliffs before heading to Churchill’s Gardens (The Pines) and stopping for a cream tea, or dinner at Wallets Court just a few minutes drive away.
  • The George Inn, Molash, a pretty footpath takes you from outside Hegdale Barn to this traditional Kentish Pub with garden. Good pub food, booking often required. About 35 Minutes walking.
