Relax and unwind in this artist-run bohemian retreat. Tucked away in the village of Preston, surrounded by orchards, you'll enjoy a peaceful 'get-away' yet be in easy reach of local amenities and Kent's stunning coastline. The studio is blissfully quiet, set back from the cottage with its own entrance under a vine-covered pergola, with access to a large garden. Your host is happy to interact as much or as little as you like, and will gladly share the best experiences the area has to offer.
“If you’re looking for somewhere to come for a break from modern life, this is the place to go. The studio is gorgeous, so well designed and totally peaceful. We loved the rural location, which is out of the way but also still a short drive from local attractions so not too far away from civilisation! Emily was a great host, friendly, helpful and quick with responses. We would highly recommend a stay here.”
The Hangar is a private self contained space built onto our house, so-called because although it is modern, the houses in the area are built on what used to be a World War Two aerodrome where Spitfires would take off to fly across the English Channel. The Battle of Britain Museum is very close by and well worth a visit. The space has a double bedroom and small lounge area with a spare double sofa bed if needed. The new bathroom has a very relaxing power shower. Private patio area is included.
“A really high standard accommodation. Not one thing overlooked. Over the past 5 years I’ve worked away from home, staying in various spaces & cities, this place tops them all. Great space. Would definitely recommend.”
