Groombridge was once part of a large estate, split up in the late 1980s. Like all the others in the row, number 7 is in the traditional Kent style with patchwork brick colours and a red tiled roof. You enter through the back door to find the kitchen. It’s immaculate, with all the gear you need and a bottle of wine waiting for you. Fresh flowers too.
The living room has a huge fireplace (you can sit inside it) and big beams. If TV is your thing then you’ll be happy on a leather sofa directly in front of it. A vaulted dining room is next door for candle lit suppers. Up the small stairs (mind your head!) are a twin and a double – venture further up and you’ll find the master bedroom, facing south over the green and the church. All have thick oak doors, crisp cotton sheets and pleasing views.
On summer evenings you’ll spill out onto the pebbled space in front for sundowners, or mingle with pub guests a few doors up.
