A charming freshly decorated cottage overlooking a field with no houses in sight. The cottage is furnished with a kitchen/sitting room with woodburner and upstairs there is a king sized bed in the bedroom with a modern bathroom with power shower. Luxury 300 thread count white bedlinen and white fluffy towels and bathrobes are provided for your stay. Very peaceful with lots of lovely local walks and yet only 8 miles from Tunbridge Wells. Very close location to lots of English castles.

The space
The newly decorated kitchen has an oven, fridge, dishwasher, white corian sink, salt and pepper and a welcome pack which includes freshly laid eggs from our hens. The sitting room is open plan with the kitchen and has a TV and sofa. There is also a wood burning stove to cosy up to on a cold evening. . Upstairs there is a king sized bed with a luxury anti allergy mattress and a luxury down duvet with white linen cover. The feather pillows are also covered with anti allergy covers. We supply shampoo, shower gel and conditioner in the shower and white fluffy towels. We also include 2 white towelling robes during your stay.

There are lots of local walks and footpaths which are readily accessible from the property. There is also a local pub called The Castle Inn serving home cooked food and draught beer (Harveys Sussex bitter) a few minutes walk away.

This is a great base to explore all that Kent has to offer whilst at the same time only a 40 minute train journey into London.

Guest access
We live next door and you will have your own front door and own sunbathing area and garden. We have a vegetable garden which you can help yourself to and this includes tomatoes, lettuces, rhubarb, herbs, runner beans, mange tout and whatever else is in season. There is also a barbeque for you to use. We have plenty of room in the garages to park your car and if you are keen cyclists can accommodate bicycles as well.

Other things to note
The nearest supermarket is Waitrose in Paddock Wood which is 4 miles away and we can buy groceries for you in advance of your arrival for a small fee. There is a washing machine and tumble drier for your use and a washing line outside. There is also a deep freeze for your use.

Married mother of 4 children. 3 children have left university and live in London and 1 is at university. I have a dog, cat , 4 alpacas and 4 chickens. I enjoy cooking and gardening. We moved out from London about 15 years ago and love the peace and quiet of living in the country. My husband commutes daily into London and I work part time in London going in just 2 days a week. We both love travelling and meeting new people and have stayed at a variety of Airbnb places all over the world. I love interiors and houses and enjoy visiting new places to enjoy the different architecture and design of the region.
