About Us

We are Paul and Anita, husband and wife, "natives" of the local area,  and proud owners of The Cart Stable.   The Cart Stable is a former brick built stable building that has been lovingly restored into self-contained holiday accommodation.  It is available to let for short breaks and holidays, allowing you to unwind, relax and explore this beautiful part of Kent.

Sat within five acres of private grounds, you can enjoy completely unspoiled views across to Blean Woods, which are accessible by the public bridleway just a few meters away.

Located in Dargate between Faversham and Whitstable in Kent, we are easily reachable and just over an hour out of London by train or car, perfect for a short weekend or weekday break to unwind and relax.

Dargate itself is a small hamlet forming part of the parish of Hernhill, which was made a conservation area in 1999. In the centre of the hamlet, and a very convenient 100 metres from us, is The Dove public house where you can enjoy a warm country pub welcome and a fantastic dining experience.
