Sibton Park is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 42,000 investors across more than 30 locations. You can find out more about Sibton Park below, but first a brief explanation about the Holiday Property Bond.

A. How can I holiday better?

Invest from £5,000 in the Holiday Property Bond for exclusive access to a portfolio of over 1,400 top quality villas, cottages and apartments in over 30 locations across the UK and Europe. For each £1 invested you will receive one Holiday Point each year which you can use to book the properties. And when staying in them you do not pay a commercial rent, just a no-profit user charge covering actual running, maintenance and refurbishment costs. This charge is level throughout the year so there are no high season premiums. For a studio the charge averages about £315 a week, for a two bedroom property around £480 a week. Larger properties are also available. This no-profit user charge is only payable when you want to go on holiday. Your only ongoing commitment is a quarterly fee of just over £30 – that is around £130 a year.

B. Will there be more properties in the future?

As we attract more investors the more properties we will add to the portfolio – increasing your holiday choice still further.

C. How long can I holiday with HPB?

For life if you wish – the holiday benefits last as long as you hold the Bond. In due course you can pass it and the holiday benefits to your children and grandchildren, as many of our earlier investors have already done. If, however, at some point you and your family no longer wish to holiday with us you can surrender your Bond back to the company after two years or more (subject to deferral in exceptional circumstances). You will not get back the full amount you invested, although we would hope that you will have had some wonderful holidays. What you do get back will reflect initial charges (25%) taken before your money is invested in the HPB fund of holiday properties and securities. The fund itself also pays annual charges of around 2.5% and other overheads. The value of the fund’s properties and securities can also go up or down and so, like most investments, your capital is at risk.

Sibton Park, a superb Grade II-listed country house now beautifully converted into comfortable modern apartments and cottages, could hardly be better situated. It is set in 43 acres of peaceful parkland in the heart of the serene North Downs, yet just four miles from the M20 and five miles from the Channel Tunnel.

The historic cities of Canterbury and Rochester – and the majestic castles of Leeds and Dover – are but a few of the sights that await visitors to Sibton Park. It is the ideal base from which to explore the ever-changing landscapes of the 'Garden of England': from the Romney Marsh to the High Weald; and the White Cliffs to the oast houses around Tonbridge.

Explore Kent’s historic castles

There are a number of significant castles you should attempt to visit during your stay in Kent. The most important is undoubtedly Dover Castle, which is also known as the ‘key to England’, having protected the country from invasion for more than 20 centuries. It has a fascinating history and the attraction even gives you the chance to go back in time – head to the Great Tower to see costumed actors play out the roles of King Henry II’s court.

Learn more about Anne Boleyn and her ill-fated relationship with Henry VIII at Hever Castle, which was once her childhood home. Rochester Castle, a well-preserved Norman keep, is also worth exploring. Leeds Castle, however, is arguably the most beautiful, and is indeed described as the ‘loveliest castle in the world’. It’s situated in the middle of a lake and is surrounded by 500 acres of parkland.

Visit Canterbury’s stunning cathedral

One of England’s oldest cities, Canterbury is both attractive and fascinating. It has World Heritage status, thanks to the presence of Canterbury Cathedral, St Martin’s Church and St Augustine’s Abbey. Venture inside the cathedral to see an 11th-century Romanesque crypt, 14th-century perpendicular nave and 12th-century early Gothic quire.

Spend the day at Dartford’s Bluewater

Bluewater Shopping Centre is one of the best shopping and entertainment destinations in Europe. Boasting more than 300 stores and restaurants, plus a cinema, mini arcade, soft play area and much, much more, there’s plenty here to keep the whole family happy.

Play at 91 different golf courses

While there is a nine-hole pitch and putt course at Sibton Park, keen golfers will want to sample the many championship-standard golf courses within Kent. Whether you’re looking for a real challenge or a slightly gentler course, you’re bound to find a favourite here in the county.

Enjoy one of Kent’s hundreds of walking routes

To see Kent at its best, you need to explore it on foot. Luckily, there are hundreds of walks spanning thousands of miles of footpaths. Some of the most popular include the North Downs Way, the Miner’s Cycle Trail, the Saxon Shore Way and the Skylark Trail.

Some of the walks, such as the North Downs Way, will take several days to complete, so you may want to do it in sections. All the more reason to keep coming back to Sibton Park!
