Activities in the West Hougham area

Spitfire Barn is perfect for couples or small-ish families, or even adult groups looking for a peaceful holiday in a truly unique location. The barn has been lovingly converted into somewhere like nowhere else, with a clever use of space and craftsmanship.

The main bedrooms are on the ground floor, and the sloping attic has a lounge which converts into a bedroom if needed, thanks to a stylish sofa bed. The patio has a decked area which houses your own private hot tub. The views, from both upstairs and down, are breathtaking, and will inspire you to step out and explore the countryside.

As the name suggests, there’s a Spitfire theme to the cottage, as this part of the country witnessed much of the Battle of Britain. To the east, in the distance, you can see Dover Castle, which is a reminder of what’s on your doorstep.

Dover is only 2 miles away, which is perfect for a walk, as your four legged friend will appreciate if you have one. Dover itself has lots to offer the visitor, from the Castle to great pubs, restaurants and shops. If you’ve got the time, why not hop on the ferry and go to Calais for the day?

The lodge is in West Hougham, which is a beautiful, quiet English country village, and part of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). As such, there are loads of signposted paths, trails and bridleways to follow, and many rare birds to spot. Just up the country road to the north, the village of Alkham boasts a destination dining restaurant, in case you don’t feel like cooking.

Also close by, just to the west, lies Capel-le-Ferne, which has strong connections with the RAF and the history of World War II. James Bond author Ian Fleming also had strong ties with the area, and there are visitor attractions reflecting this, both in St Margaret at Cliffe, and the promenade in Dover.

A Final Note

A unique luxury holiday lies in wait at Spitfire Barn, one you’ll never forget, and which will make you want to return time and again. This could be the perfect romantic getaway, with a king size double bed overlooking the rolling Kent countryside.

For those with a sense of history, the Spitfire theme and the area’s connections with the Battle of Britain give the holiday an extra, inspirational feel. Of course, there’s also the chance to visit our cousins over the Channel while you’re here.

Pet owners will also love it, as there is so much to explore in the local area. From the best of nature to coastal walks in Dover, adults, kids and a dog will all be thrilled by the local attractions. At the end of the day, relax and admire the view as you enjoy a welcome hot tub.
