Chestfield // is a village (and civil parish and with Swalecliffe a district council ward) in the Canterbury District of Kent, England. The parish is located a mile or so from the sea on the north coast of Kent, between the towns of Whitstable and Herne Bay. It is approximately five miles (8 km) north of Canterbury.
The Chestfield Barn originated as part of the Chestfield Manor in the 14th century, a possession of the half-brother of William the Conqueror, Odo, Bishop of Bayeux. It is believed that the Manor dates back to as early as 1084, particularly as it is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. In the early part of the 20th century the barn was converted into a golf house by Abe Mitchell, to service the 700-acre (2.8 km2) golf course constructed in 1924 by George Reeves.
