A charming oast house in a rural setting between the city of Canterbury and the North Kent coast

Rushbourne Oast is a charming rural home created in the year 2000. Once part of the neighbouring farm, the oast is set apart with plenty of private space around it, with the neighbouring farmhouse and traditional farm buildings providing an attractive setting.

The front door opens to a fantastic open plan living space, large enough to provide a generous dining room to one end and a sitting room to the other. Beautiful, honey coloured beams fill the space with warmth and character and a long brick hearth accommodates a wood-burning stove. Plenty of windows fill the room with light and French doors lead outside.

A lobby leads to a utility room/boot room with a cloakroom and a back door providing a useful day-to-day entrance. The kitchen is a lovely bright room occupying the square kiln with ample space for a table; doors from here open to the garden, and units across two walls provide plenty of storage.

Stairs rise to the first floor and arrive at a wonderful sitting area on the generous landing. Tall windows provide a spot to sit and look out over the surroundings. There are three bedrooms with the principal bedroom set in the kiln. There is a family bathroom and a separate shower room.

This property has 0.5 acres of land.


Rushbourne Oast is approached via a double five-bar gate set between red brick walls on to a gravel drive which provides plenty of parking. The walled garden to the front of the house presents a lovely setting with established borders. There is a brick terrace to the side adjacent to the kitchen and continuing behind the house.

The remainder of the gardens are interspersed with trees and are laid to lawn. With fenced and hedged boundaries, the garden adjoins farmland.


Hoath benefits from various community amenities, including a village hall, school and a public house. Nearby Sturry and Herne Bay provide further facilities, with the Cathedral city of Canterbury offering cultural interests and extensive recreational and shopping facilities. Notable nearby schools include St Edmunds, The King’s Schools and the Simon Langton grammar schools.

Sturry station offers links to London from just over an hour, whilst the A2 and M20 are within easy reach. The Channel Tunnel and the Port of Dover provide regular services to the Continent.
