You’d have to be made of stone not to fall in love with this beautifully restored 16th-century farmhouse. It oozes history and charm from the inglenook fireplace and opium bed coffee table in the guest sitting/dining room to the wonky oak boards and its three beautifully furnished en suite bedrooms. Jamie, who grew up here, and Karena are well-travelled and relish hosting guests. Breakfast on lashings of tea and coffee, muesli and local preserves or the full works; read the paper in the pretty suntrap garden. Set in gently undulating Wealden countryside this is perfectly placed for stately piles and grand gardens galore.
