General

  • Peaceful and scenic surroundings close to woodlands and beaches
  • Two pubs and a village shop within 10 minutes' walk
  • 20 minutes from Canterbury and the beach at Hythe

Come to Kent for scenic and peaceful surrounds for strolling and family days... and might you like a woodland walk or a beach day too? Have the lot at small and serene Knowler Farm, along with a setting right in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but a nifty 20-minute drive from Canterbury.

This is a firmly rural spot, in an area popular with walkers and cyclists, and within easy reach of Kent highlights like Howletts Wild Animal Park and Leeds Castle. The beach at Hythe is 20 minutes' drive away on the south coast and Whitstable is within 40 minutes on the north. (And if you're escaping from London for the weekend, you can zip down here in under two hours: hail the train from St Pancras and get a bus to the farm from outside the Rose and Crown in Canterbury.)

The site is on the edge of the quiet village of Stelling Minnis, where there's a shop, a post office and two food pubs highly recommended by the Knowler Farm team; one, the Hop Pocket, also has regular live music. Davison's Mill, 10 minutes' walk away, dishes up cream teas on summer Sundays.

Thank you for reviewing and giving us a 10/10. What a shame October wasn't the warm dry month it has been in previous years but at least you had a great fire pit roaring away to keep you warm.
Glad you're coming back we will keep our fingers crossed for some warm dry weather for you.

Directions

Local attractions

Nature spotters will find species aplenty around the 124-acre common and the countryside surroundings of local village Stelling Minnis, an ancient pastureland still used for grazing in more modern times. Several ponds on the minnis are home to toads and newts; around the grassland and woodland, look out for voles and badgers, weasels and shrews, woodpeckers, nightingales and barn and long-eared owls.

Culture seekers can see shows at the Gulbenkien or Marlowe theatres, both just outside Canterbury, or head into the city to roam around its ancient sites including Canterbury Cathedral. If you're up for hearing the story of how Chaucer developed and wrote his famed tales, the Canterbury Tales tour runs throughout the year daily from St Margaret's Street.

Those off to the nearest beach at Hythe should hop on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway to chuff along almost 14 miles to Dungeness, via the Kent coastal spots of Dymchurch, St. Mary's Bay, New Romney and Romney Sands.

  • Canterbury Tales (6.9 miles)
  • St Augustine's Abbey (6.9 miles)
