The Hayloft

Lymbridge Green, Nr Canterbury





Perched on the edge of a picture-perfect meadow and with mesmerising views of rolling hills and the North Downs, the Hayloft is a truly spoiling countryside retreat. Newly renovated, the owners have worked tirelessly with their Scandinavian interior designer to create a space that is luxurious, modern and homely in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The beautifully furnished, open plan living area on the first floor, complete with woodburning stove, has wonderful views with one wall almost entirely glass. It opens onto a large sun trap terrace, complete with comfortable outdoor sofas and dining area, from which the surrounding countryside and sunsets feel even closer. Steps lead down to a patio and private hot tub - the perfect place to unwind.

Each of the three ground floor bedrooms has architectural windows or sliding doors, providing charming outlooks onto the greenery around you. The master suite is particularly indulgent, with its super king bed, 6m wide sliding doors and luxurious freestanding bath. Bedroom two also has a fabulous super king bed and shares the sleek family bathroom with the bunk bedroom, which provides a fun space for up to four children, or two adults happy with a smaller room.

Situated on a small country estate, the house has its own private piece of fenced meadow with a gate leading you into the rest of the 9 acre field, which guests are welcome to roam around and enjoy, as well as directly onto a footpath with endless opportunities for rejuvenating rambles.
All beds are British made and, along with the linen and towels, are of a supremely high standard. The two main bedrooms have large flat screen televisions, as well as Nespresso machines whilst the kitchen has a range cooker and wine fridge, and there is underfloor heating throughout. Your stay at The Hayloft will feel like a fine hotel experience.

The Hayloft is a peaceful haven for those wishing to enjoy the countryside with easy access to the coast. The Hayloft is not a party house.

Extra guests are not permitted over and above the maximum occupancy stated. If guests wish to invite daily visitors this may only be done by prior arrangement with the owners or agents.

Extras and Experiences


Spectacular house and location, a dreamy stay 5/5

We had the most perfect stay at the Hayloft and couldn’t have been happier with the house, facilities, location, and welcome from the hosts! The interior is stunning - beautifully decorated, luxurious and comfortable, and thoughtfully appointed too with hot tub towels, cool bags for picnics, charger cables, robes - the owners have really thought of everything you could need. We had amazing weather, and the views from the Hayloft are spectacular. The hot tub is wonderful, there’s a lovely balcony for eating outside, a beautiful open plan kitchen and lounge. It honestly couldn’t have been better for us. We were welcomed with fresh eggs and other treats, and when the owners found out we were staying over our wedding weekend, we came home from the day to a bottle of ice cold bubbly. I couldn’t recommend the Hayloft highly enough - thank you so much!

The Hayloft 5/5

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Hayloft. the property and location is stunning, Richard and Sheba are really lovely people that have thought of every detail you could possibly need for your stay. if you are looking for a quiet relaxing Holiday then this is it, the Hot Tub was lovely to relax in and take in the view. The Hayloft really has everything you could want, and is finished to a very high standard. Richard and Sheba really are the best hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they made some great suggestions for places to go and eat as well. we would highly recommend staying here, and we will definitely be coming back.

Lovely property for a relaxing break with lovely countryside views 5/5

We had a very relaxing break at the Hayloft. It was a great place to stay as a family - the property had everything we needed with some luxury touches (eg coffee machines, hot tub, master bedroom and bathroom) which resembled a boutique hotel. The property offers gorgeous views of the nearby countryside and the owners were very welcoming and helpful - they had though of everything!

New property lovely views. 4.5/5

Not sure what the difference is from the question above. The TVs in all rooms were too big especially in the lounge and too high. It could have been put on a different wall with a swing out TV.

40th Birthday Break 5/5

My friends and I stayed at this beautiful house to celebrate two of us turning 40. The house is in a gorgeous location and the house is out of this world with so many lovely finishing touches that made our stay that extra bit special. You really couldn't ask for anything more. Can't wait too come back.

Fantastic property in a beautiful location 5/5

We spent a fantastic few days here with friends. The property is really well considered and beautifully done up. It's set in stunning surroundings and the house has been designed to make the most of the view. It had everything we needed and more for a brilliant holiday. The owners live in the house next door and couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. They accommodated every request we had and were all round fantastic hosts. All in all a big thumbs up from us.

First Guests At The Hayloft!!! 5/5

Pictures never do the place justice. This is a fantastic place to go to with family, we had a really wonderful time. Being in a hot tub on top of a hill with the views is just incredible. The house has everything you would normally need in a home and the owners have thought of absolutely everything. Richard and Sheba are fantastic and really lovely. We will definitely be going back there later in the summer!
