Set amidst the rolling downs, hop fields and fruit orchards that surround the picturesque village of Boughton-under-Blean in Kent, The Linen Shed is the place to come and relax and unwind in understated luxury.

Tucked away from the main road, a winding footpath leads you through the rockery, past an American postbox and along the weatherboard veranda to our front door.

Inside, you walk up the staircase into faded vintage grandeur and the smell of baking. Exposed original wooden floorboards and reclaimed architectural detail make the most of the way the light pours into this former drill hall which is now eco-friendly having been lined in sheep’s wool. Decorated in the French style, modern classics sit comfortably alongside the vintage bric-a-brac, colonial furniture and beautiful antiques that we have collected over the years.

Upon arrival, you will be welcomed with a cup of tea or a glass of something chilled (depending on the time of day and your preference). Breakfast is served whenever and wherever suits you, be that in our French dinning room or outside on our New Orleans style verandah, overlooking the rose filled garden and gypsy caravan. Dressing gowns for all make it a relaxed at-home affair and our deck is also the perfect spot to enjoy a drink or two on a warm summer’s evening.

Having trained as gourmet chef, Vickie’s breakfasts are definitely something to write home about. We’re as happy to whip you up a seaside picnic complete with ring burner to cook your own crab cakes at the beach as we are to fix you a delicious snack should you get a chance to be hungry.

From gourmet breakfasts to homemade granola bites, can’t-get-up comfy beds and hand-washed French linen, understated luxury is waiting to welcome you.

We look forward to your stay,

Vickie, Graham, Cecil and Mr. Wilfred


In each of our rooms, you’ll find French hand washed linen sheets, cotton robes and fresh flowers complete with the obligatory fluffy towels.
