Owner Profile

Property Owner
Philip & Michaela

How long have you owned the property?
15 years.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The location and proximity to London, yet in a very pretty Kent village. The thatched farmhouse, gardens and the potential we saw in renovating the additional barns.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
The property was owned by Rod Hull in the 1980's.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
A few but not allowed to divulge names, one famous journalist turned politician and a hollywood director has stayed here.

What’s the strangest or most difficult guest request you’ve ever received?
A guest wanted to land a helicopter on the paddock, but apparently it was not allowed.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?

Explore the immediate vicinity around Milstead, and also slightly further afield such as Oare marshes on the Swale, Faversham and of course the famous Leeds Castle.

Really eat?
The local inns have excellent locally produced kentish produce. Local festivals, such as the Hop festival and Whitstable Oyster festival are a must.

Really see?
The local countryside, beautiful any time of year.

Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Manor Farmhouse is perfect for a family reunion to celebrate a birthday or milestone, it allows groups of up to 18 to get together but also have their own space - so allows guest the choice of having 3 meals a day as one group or just the main evening meal in the Farmhouse, which of course is set up to dine up to 18 guests.

    Once again, many thanks for such a memorable stay at the properties. My family had the most amazing time and it has been years since we all sat around a huge table to eat together every day. Lots of lovely memories made. The lovely, lovely housekeeper, Joyce was wonderful and everything we wanted or needed was to hand. She is a gem!!!
    Thank you.

  • Perfect!
