The Hayloft at Chislet is your retreat in the beautiful Kent countryside. A thatched barn down a quiet lane in a very small village, it will seem a million miles away from your busy lifestyle. And yet, the Hayloft offers stylish accommodation sleeping up to six people, with all the modern comforts that will make your stay a joy. We've also been awarded 5 Star Gold by Enjoy England, the official quality assessors of holiday accommodation in England. The Hayloft is only 8 miles from the historic city of Canterbury, in easy reach of the coastal towns of Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Whitstable, and the excitement of London is just a day trip away Please check our website for our up-to-date availability calendar. ...The Hayloft at Chislet is your retreat in the beautiful Kent countryside.
