Escape to the Kent countryside, and come together for a truly memorable stay at our beautiful Burleigh House. Steeped in character, from large, original sash windows to the sweeping original staircase, with all the space and amenities you could want for a wonderful stay together - whether that be spending time around the heated swimming pool, garden games in the beautiful lawn garden, a competitive game of pool in the outdoor games room, or meals together around the dining table prepared by a local chef.

The house itself offers six bedrooms, most of which offer views through large sash windows over the garden, or green hills and rolling countryside beyond. With a choice of living areas to relax and come together, with a comfortable family library room with warming wood burner, kids snug with toys and games to enjoy, grand dining room and idyllic farmhouse style kitchen and breakfast table with views across the garden and french doors leading outside. Come evening, retreat to the light filled day room with picturesque bay windows enjoying in the idyllic countryside view, and roaring open fire that the adults of your group will undoubtedly favour for gathering for evening drinks and games evening.

Come summer, where better to spend your days then in the glorious lawn garden, with manicured hedging, blooming flowers and plants. Designed to give guests the fullest possible range of facilities to suit everyone from the youngest to the oldest. Whilst some may prefer to sit back on the patio area to watch friends or family running around in the garden or splashing around in the pool from the comfort of the comfortable outdoor corner sofa and dining table, others may want to have a competitive game of pool in the garden house or game of table tennis on the lawn.
Situated in the village of Charing on the North Downs, a designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', Burleigh House sits in a perfect spot for long countryside walks, with ample rural cycling routes on your doorstep and a choice of country pubs a short 5 minute driveaway. But should the sea be calling, jump in the car and be at the coast in less than 30 minutes, with charming Hythe and vibrant Folkestone nearby, however excellent road and rail connections (the train station within a few minutes walk) make exploring your oyster, should you be able to draw yourself away for the delights of Burleigh House!

In the Area


Situated just 6 miles north of Ashford, yet surrounded by countryside you’ll find the village of Charing. The perfect spot for long country walks, with ample cycling routes on your doorstep, yet within easy reach of road and rail connections, so a trip to the seaside can easily be enjoyed with Hythe being only a 25 minute drive away and vibrant Folkestone 5 minutes further, or a train caught from or to the bright lights of the capital - made even more convenient with the station being a less than a 5 minute walk away. If you can draw yourself away for the beautiful grounds of Burleigh House for a moment, there is an abundance of things to see and do with countryside walks on your doorstep from Leeds Castle (a family favourite!) to Sissinghurst Castle, the South of England Rare Breeds Centre and the cobbled streets of historic Canterbury all within easy reach.

Fantastic stay 5/5

A beautiful home with a gorgeous garden. Lovely home, fantastic communication and would thoroughly recommend,

8/10 - lovely stay but with two key problems! 4.3/5

The accommodation is generally fantastic. Large rooms, plenty of space, provision of games, pool towels, a lovely garden and plenty of outside seating to enjoy good weather. The kitchen in particular could have been cleaner and we had to pre wash most utensils before use. Please see further comments below which is a text message I sent on the day we left the accommodation (two days ago) to which I'm yet to have a response. On the whole we had a good stay, the house was great, garden immaculate and we had pretty much everything we wanted for our stay. We had one big problem which was the swimming pool. It was a big factor in us booking this accommodation and two of my friends were in the pool when we noticed a dead hedgehog in the pool on the side where the cover retractor is. We had to use the net to remove it and placed it behind the hedges on the right hand side. This was still an issue however as my dog could smell it so we ended up having to cover it with a red box we found inside. This of course worried our entire group and my friends who were in the pool before we realised quickly ran to shower in the hope of not catching any parasites. We cannot understand why the pool was not cleaned beforehand as this would have obviously been noticed. Can you please look into this matter? It is a great shame as the weather was lovely this weekend and we were all looking forward to spending time in the pool. Thanks

A wonderful comfortable and well equipped house 4.5/5

We had a wonderful holiday at Burleigh House and were very well looked after by the lovely team at Bloom Stays. The house is beautiful, comfortable, well arranged and perfect for all ages. The garden is stunning and the fabulous pool was a much enjoyed highlight. The village with its fantastic butcher is lovely and the surrounding area has all you need. We are already talking about coming back again!
