Anyone interested in architecture or design will be delighted to stay here. It’s stunning, with a light and airy feel thanks to big Crittall windows and clever use of space. Eco friendly too with a ground source heat pump, solar panels and repurposed timber. The main living area is open plan with a log burner, big TV, grand piano and enough comfy seating for everybody. Escapees will love the games room with air hockey.
Cookery books, basics and a table for 22 wait in the swanky kitchen along with wine, jams, cheeses, bread and other nice things. It’s an easy 20-minute walk along a private footpath and across a river to Chiddingstone, a beautiful Tudor village bought by the National Trust in 1939 and with a fine pub, The Castle Inn. Learn about the legend of the chiding stone.
The covered patio is the place for a barbecue even on damp days and children can play on the lawn quite safely or say hello to the chickens.
