The Experience

A truly lovely place with seemingly no rules (except to behave yourself beautifully and maintain the hush) for artists, writers and people who need nurturing – there’s even a platform for watching sheep and meditating. Walk through a numinous patch of garden to the ancient, higgledy-piggledy house for books, pictures, scores of candles, plants, fresh garden flowers and a wood-burner.

The kitchen is a great place to cook and share (pick fruit and veg too from the gardens in season) but you can have a Michelin-starred chef brought in, or take part in a cookery course. There’s a yoga studio, hot tub, a tipi, firepit, badminton and a bell tent – all can be yours, or you can just hole up here and be guarded by angels in a candle-lit bath with Neal’s Yard potions.

It’s a five-minute walk to the dreamy English village where The Darling Buds of May was filmed and, in summer, cricket to idly watch with a pint in hand. A restorative place.

Location

The neighbourhood

West Peckham has a cricket pitch on the green, a grand pub called the Swan on the Green and a Saxon church with noisy bells on Sundays. Two brilliant farm shops are a 10-minute drive - one for meat and the other for fruit and veg. Wander through 7 square miles of ancient woodland from the house, visit castles like Hever and Penshurst Place or find good restaurants in nearby Tonbridge or Sevenoaks.

Local points of interest from Lori & Dipu Collins

  • Leybourne Lakes Country Park is near Snodland, in Kent, England. The park, which opened in 2004, was created from disused gravel pits that have been flooded and landscaped to make fishing and wildlife lakes.
  • Trosley Park boasts 170 acres of beautiful woodland and chalk downland. You are afforded spectacular views over the North Downs. Classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, the nature reserve is home to lots of rare wildlife and plant life.
  • Coldrum Longbarrow is the best-preserved megalithic longbarrow in Kent. Owned by the National Trust, this 3,000 year-old burial chamber is the only one of those originally present in the Medway Valley to remain virtually intact.

Introducing

Lori & Dipu Collins

Lori is a garden designer, Dipu a yoga teacher. They bought this place when it was derelict and have done all the work themselves. They love to eat good organic produce and cooking and sharing food (Lori's family are Italian). They have created this space so that guests can forget their worldly cares for a while. They are happy for you to join in with as much, or as little, as you need.
