Donkey Barn is situated in the pretty village of Wingham approximately 7 miles from the historic City of Canterbury, 5 miles from The Cinque Port of Sandwich, within an easy drive of local beaches, Dover Ferry Port and the Eurostar terminal at Folkstone. The property is totally self contained with it's own entrance but near enough to the owners house should assistance be required. Donkey Barn has it’s parking space and private patio. There are numerous farm shops locally offering delivery.

The space
Donkey Barn has a large main room with a kitchen area, (two ring hob, microwave and fridge tucked away behind grey curtain) lounge area and dining table. There is a wood burning stove for cosying up on the sofa, (£8 extra charge to cover logs/kindling/laying fire and cleaning) and a cool little turntable with a selection of vinyl to help you slow down or maybe have a little boogie! The bedroom has a double bed and adjacent is the shower room. A TV is set up in both the main room and bedroom. There is a very pretty patio area opening from the main room and adjacent parking. Access to the owners garden is not permitted unless by arrangement. Donkey barn is newly renovated (spring 2019) and we have added luxury touches such as high quality linens, a Nespresso machine and lots of thoughtful extras we like to find when renting. Please note that Donkey Barn is not suitable for crawling babies or young children as there is a steep set of open stairs and the wood burning stove has no guard. Small babies and older children can be accommodated.

Guest access
Donkey Barn is totally self contained and has it's own parking space and patio. Access to the rest of the garden is not permitted unless by prior arrangement.

Other things to note
There is a curtain only between the bedroom and shower room.
There is a microwave oven and 2 ring hob but no conventional oven.
Donkey Barn is not suitable for crawling babies or children under 10 years due to unguarded stairs and wood burning stove. Please contact me prior to booking if you’d like to book with children.

Location

Wingham, England, United Kingdom

Wingham is a thriving, very pretty village with many local amenities including it's the hugely popular Wingham Wildlife park (the lions roar can be heard from Donkey barn!). We have two pubs, The Anchor which hosts weekly live music events and serves tasty 'pub grub' and The Dog, an award winning gastro pub which serves excellent local food and an unbelievably good breakfast! Our favourite foodie pub, The Fordwich Arms is a short drive away and holds a Michelin star. There is an Indian restaurant and take away right in the village. Wingham has a fantastic farm shop selling local and organic produce and we are surrounded by lovely country walks. Within 10 minutes drive is the historic Cinque port of Sandwich (the home of The Royal St Georges golf club) and in the opposite direction is the Cathedral City of Canterbury a UNESCO World Heritage Site with it's famous cathedral, numerous shops, restaurants and bars. The Port of Dover is around 20 minutes drive and the Eurotunnel crossing at Folkstone is under half an hour. Fishing can be found at Sandwich lakes about a 5 minute drive away. Numerous beaches including Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Margate are all within easy driving distance (20-30 minutes) and Westwood Shopping centre, a huge retail and entertainment centre, can also be found within a 20 minute drive.
