“I have lived here for many years and have always loved the peace and tranquility that is evident from the moment you turn into the driveway. The views are superb and the house and grounds are wonderful and I am only moving now because I feel it is time to downsize. The property was named ‘Hop Pocket House’ as it is at the back of the oast house where the hops used to be delivered and kept in bags known as pockets. Even though the property is out in the country we are very close to the local recreation ground with its tennis courts and it is only a short stroll across the footpath to the village church and the Duke of Cumberland pub, where you can enjoy a drink or a pleasant meal. Barham is a very friendly village with an historic church and a modernised and extended village hall that offers a variety of activities and facilities. These include two large halls, a conference/meeting room and a post office as well as a useful village shop run by volunteers that sells everything you need from light bulbs to specialist local wines, homemade bread and cakes to fresh meat. There is the excellent pub/restaurant nearby, a vineyard, a well respected village school with a great swimming pool and active tennis and bowls clubs. In the nearby village of Bridge you will find a cricket club and also a variety of shops including a small supermarket, a health food shop and a hair and beauty salon. Bridge also has a number of pubs, restaurants and a tea shop plus a dentist and a very good surgery and clinic.  Broome Park Golf Club is close by for golfing aficionados and for those who enjoy riding, Covert Wood offers some splendid ‘off road’ facilities, while there are lots of great places to take the dog for a walk. Very good private and grammar schools are available in Canterbury, Folkestone and Dover and there is a regular bus service through the village to Folkestone and Canterbury while there is easy access to the A2 for Dover, Canterbury and London.”
