Why not watch BBC Countryfile Diaries on Thursday 16th February 9:15am BBC1 to see how our Straw Cottages were built.
Situated high on the Kent Downs, only 7 miles from the cathedral city of Canterbury, our cottages provide a perfect base from which to explore the many attractions of the surrounding area. We look forward to welcoming you to Elmfield.
Our small farm is used for sheep farming and hay making. We keep alpacas, a few sheep, some lovely pigs, ducks and chickens for our guests to meet and provide a few very tasty free range eggs. On the edge of the farmyard, each cottage has its own patio and lawned garden area.
Dilly and Gilt cottages are traditional detached brick built bungalows which sleep 4. Clay and Straw cottages are end of terrace cottages built from Straw Bales each sleeping 6. All the cottages have room for cots. (The middle cottage of the terrace is used only for storage). We pride ourselves on providing a warm welcome, and bake fresh cakes for your arrival. Visiting children have space to play in their private garden. There is also a small play area in the farmyard and plenty of space to play and explore across the fields and in the woods. As well as the city of Canterbury there are a large number of local attractions for visitors of all ages.
If you have any questions please do get in touch.
Andrew and Harriet Wishart.
