Property code: MELPI

This converted coach house and hayloft, set in a secluded rural location, is the perfect choice for those celebrating special occasions with loved ones as it comes with plenty of space and entertainment facilities, with the added luxury of use of the swimming pool and games room.

For large groups whose ideal getaway is a rural retreat where you won't even need to leave the property to have a fantastic time, this stunning brick coach house with adjacent hayloft provides all the comfort and entertainment you'll need for a stylish get-together. Sleeping up to 16 guests, the property boasts a heated outdoor swimming pool, games room, and a hot tub available for private hire in advance. Relax with friends and family, or plan a day trip out to explore the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Bewl Water Reservoir (11.5 miles) is just one of the area's many beauty spots, where you can spend your time walking, cycling, fishing and sailing as well as appreciating the scenery from a table at either the bistro or waterfront cafe.

 

Both the house and hayloft exude a country charm, with exposed wooden beams and brick walls throughout. In the house, gather in the long kitchen where two sofas allow the conversation to keep flowing even as cooking begins. Once the food is ready, serve it in the dining room with a table big enough to host the whole party. After dinner, settle into the lounge sofas, where the wood burner will keep you warm through the evening. At the end of the night, head to the cosy bedrooms. For those occupying the three on the ground floor, simply continue along the corridor. All three have garden access via patio doors. The king-size bedroom comes with its own en-suite shower, while the doubles share the main bathroom, with a roll-top bath ideal for soaking in. For those climbing the stair to the first floor, you'll find two brightly decorated triple bedrooms. The first floor of the hayloft has its own open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, and a quaint double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, where four people (two sleeping on a sofa bed) can feel at home. Below is the games room, where you can have fun playing table football and competing over darts and pool. Steps from the kitchen lead to the enclosed garden, where the children's play area, BBQ and plenty of seating will make for a wonderful summer evening's celebration.

As well as roaming the surrounding countryside on foot, or by bicycle and boat, there are also some beautiful day trips for those who love to explore. For history and culture, there are two National Trust properties close by: Bateman's (1 mile), a Jacobean house where Rudyard Kipling lived, and Scotney Castle (12 miles). Herstmonceux Castle (11.5 miles), a magnificent 15th-century brick castle, is also within reach. Dale Hill Golf Course (6 miles) is a must for keen golfers, and the town of Royal Tunbridge Wells (14 miles) is a popular destination for a spot of retail therapy.

A large and well equipped property in a beautiful location. Lovely, warm outdoor pool and beautiful views across the mature garden and countryside. There was lots to keep the children (and adults) entertained, with the games room, outdoor play area, hot tub and pool. We would definitely go there again.

Very disappointing Xmas break. Not enough comfy seating for guests but lots round table. Games room cold and door doesnt close; house run down. Hot tub didnt work. Oven controls have worn off the cooker. En suite shower weak, no heating in main bathroom. Cosy but cramped once heating got going but it had not been put on early enough to warm up the Read morehouse before our arrival. Hostess provided us with Xmas treats but sadly was not very welcoming. This property feels very expensive for what it is. Hide

This property served us very well for an early Autumn family celebration with plenty of room. The well equipped kitchen was a bonus. Everyone had a good time.
