The Quaives is a retreat venue and holiday destination. Set in 19 acres, it is a beautiful small estate, surrounded by the peaceful countryside of East Kent, a real escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our aim is to provide a real sense of retreat with a touch of the luxury. We have a range of accommodation options for holiday rentals and yoga retreats groups. We have a brand new beautiful yoga studio with high ceilings, and a communal diner-lounge with log burner and an on-site professional kitchen. There is a hot tub, tennis court and cedar wood pavilion for guest's use and nineteen acres of beautiful formal gardens and grounds to explore, that open onto meadows and the lakes beyond. 

We are a short distance from two stunning english villages of Ickham and Wickhambreaux; the latter of which you will drive through to get to us and is located along the pristine Little Stour river complete with an impressive five storey water mill, village green with many charming period properties. Canterbury is only a few minutes drive away, with its stunning cathedral, many museums, great shopping and wonderful cafes and restaurants scattered throughout the winding medieval streets. A choice of seaside towns and villages are also within easy reach.
