  The Detail...

In the heart of the Kent countryside, nestled among the paddocks and pastures of a working farm not far from historic Canterbury, Bumble Barn is a truly remarkable self-catering holiday property for up to six guests. Combining space age interiors and matching technology with aesthetically pleasing timber cladding and a living roof, Bumble Barn is guaranteed to be unlike anywhere youve ever stayed before.

Bumble Barn is a tubular cabin with three bedrooms, set back in a private patch of land, and benefitting from a full day of Kent sunlight. Outside, your very own patio is the dream spot to recline with a glass of wine, watching the sun slowly dip down below the tree-edged fields at the end of long day of exploring. On top, a sedum planted living room keeps the barn cool in the heat of summer and pleasantly insulated during the summer months, as well as providing pollen for local bees and birds, oxygenating the environment, and providing an aesthetically pleasing roofing solution. This approach to green engineering isnt restricted to the roof, either, with heating provided by underfloor infra-red systems, and a heat exchange system.

Inside, curved walls of gleaming white feel futuristic and pleasing, while light pours in through the many windows along the cylindrical barn. Sleeping space is divided into a master bedroom of sorts, with a full en-suite, and two bedrooms set up with twin singles. Bathed in light which pours in through the floor-ceiling windows, the dining room is the perfect place to sit down to your evening meal, prepared using local ingredients and cooked in the high-tech integrated kitchen. Despite its low environmental impact and sleek design, Bumble Barn is packed with high-tech amenities, allowing you a holiday that maximises your time exploring by reducing your time spent washing up. As well as a 4K smart-TV with integrated Blu-Ray player, Bumble Barn comes equipped with a fridge freezer, dishwasher, oven, hob and microwave, as well as a washing machine, to ensure that whatever the weather youre prepared to hit the town the next morning.

Celebrated for its pastoral beauty and historical significance, Canterbury is a popular destination for individuals, couples, families and groups of fiends who are looking to combine culture with rugged beauty and excellent pubs during their time away. Visitors are strongly encouraged to make the ten minute car journey to ancient Canterbury, where a trip to world famous Canterbury Cathedral is a must. The city also has abundant restaurants, galleries, shops, bars, and architecturally significant buildings which are well worth exploring. For those wanting to explore the coast, head to Herne Bay for jet-skiing in the summer months, or Whitstable for the iconic south-eastern coastal experience.
