We took a last-minute break for a week's family holiday in Kent and stayed at the Barn. The location is wonderfully peaceful and the barn is a very nice conversion.
We were made extremely welcome from the moment we arrived and the property manager couldn't have been more helpful. The barn itself has a great layout and one switches to relaxed mode within an hour of putting the luggage down. Exploring the gardens kept the children occupied as did Molly the dog who features repeatedly in the guest book.
Nonington is great for country walks but is also well placed for Kent's attractions. We visited the beaches at Broadstairs on several days, had day trips to Canterbury and the wonderful Dover castle, both of which are only 12 miles away; did a cycle ride to Whitstable and explored Deal and Sandwich - as well as a few other things.
We had a great week and wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you Peter and Molly!
