We look forward to welcoming you soon!

The space
The Cart Stable is a Grade II listed former stable which provides comfortable accommodation for two guests, in idyllic surroundigs.

Located in Dargate between Faversham and Whitstable in Kent, we are easily reachable and just over an hour out of London by train or car, perfect for a weekend or midweek break to unwind and relax.

Five acres of private grounds provide completely unspoiled views across to Blean Woods, which are accessible by the public bridleway just a few meters away...perfect for walking, off-road cycling or running!

The open plan living space provides a lounge, dining area and a modern kitchen. The lounge area comes equipped with with HD TV, Bluray DVD, Sky Freesat, and DAB Radio (with Bluetooth). We have a wide selection of DVD's to choose from if you simply want to unwind and cosy up in front of a good film. The kitchen has all mod-cons you would expect including an induction hob, fan assisted oven with grill, dishwasher, microwave and a fridge with an integral freezer compartment. The bedroom has a super-king bed (or optional twin beds) and large wardrobe space. The shower room has a large walk-in shower cubicle (with overhead rain shower and hand shower), wash hand basin and toilet. Fresh bed linen and bath towels are provided.

Outside we provide you with an allocated space with a dining table and chairs where you can enjoy a morning cuppa and some al-fresco dining. The bench swing is great for unwinding and watching the morning sun rise across the woodland; or at the end of your day take out a nightcap and listen to the nocturnal wildlife start theirs.

If you would like to bring your bikes to explore either on-road or off-road, we can also provide a secure, dry lock-up for them.

Where you’ll be

Dargate, England, United Kingdom

Dargate itself is a small hamlet forming part of the parish of Hernhill, and was made a conservation area in 1999. In the centre of the hamlet and a very convenient 100 metres from us is The Dove public house, a fantastic gastro pub that provides a very welcoming atmosphere and a great dining experience.

We have Blean Woods immediately behind us, and just a short walk is Mount Ephraim where you can explore the wonderful gardens. There are also a couple of other local pubs in Hernhill should you need to stop for hydration, The Three Horseshoes and The Red Lion.

For those looking to soak up some Kentish sights, history and culture, you have the nearby towns of Whitstable, Canterbury and Faversham to explore.

If you want something more active then try some running or cycling along the trails or just stick to the country lanes....there are plenty of hills to give you that added challenge!
