This beautiful former oast house sleeping up to twelve people is the ideal place for all the family to get together and enjoy a holiday in the Kent countryside.

Make home in the Garden of England at this glorious Oast House, overlooking the sweeping countryside of Kent. Sitting in secluded fields, beside a lake, the house offers a stunning retreat for a family reunion or special occasion with friends. Play in the garden and enjoy a meal alfresco - there’s even a heated swimming pool on a pretty patio area. Relish it all with nine of your closest pals, before taking to the byways of the Kentish countryside where unknown adventures and stories will unfold.

 

The property itself is a delightful balance of tradition and innovation. From the entrance hallway, enter a welcoming lounge, where a wood burner whiles the evening away. Head through to the games area, a lofty space full of light where guests can entertain themselves with a spot of pool or table football. French doors lead out to the garden, so you can continue the party in the fresh air. All that walking in nature will give you quite an appetite and there are many splendid places in this house to enjoy a meal. Whip up something tasty in the pretty kitchen and head through to the formal dining room or the eating area beside the pool. When you’re tired out, head along to the bedrooms for peace and quiet. The master is a bright and airy super king-size room, with French doors giving you direct access outside, and an en-suite shower room. The other bedrooms are just as beautiful, with crisp, fresh decor and gorgeous views out over the fields.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This property enjoys a pretty location, on the edge of the village of Smarden - a slice of classic Kentish countryside. Explore on foot to discover antique shops and cafes, two lovely traditional pubs for a pint of something local, and even an art gallery. Don your walking boots to journey into nature, taking the footpaths that snake and sneak into the very heart of the county. For history buffs, Leeds Castle, a magnificent 900-year-old structure surrounded by a moat is definitely worth a visit. Enjoy a meal in the restaurant, get lost in the maze, or take in a display of falconry. The castle and surrounding town are a pleasant 10-mile drive from your house. Or, venture 5 miles to Sissinghurst Castle and its lovely gardens, famously owned and looked after by writer Vita Sackville-West.
