This stunning converted oast house presents a breathtaking blend of old and new, with original features combining contemporary style and modern luxuries, all in a beautiful and peaceful rural location.
Surrounded by open fields, this property is a perfect choice for walkers, dogs and horses. The village of Sandhurst is home to the 2014 Kent Tea Shop of the Year and also boasts a fantastic farm shop for stocking up on provisions for your stay. Situated in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is a fantastic base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and nearby Kent and Sussex coastline.
The property is in a tranquil setting down a long dirt track, and forms part of a beautiful 16th century Kentish oast house. On the ground floor a wooden barn door opens up to a drying room, with washing machine and extra fridge/freezer. An outside staircase leads to the front door of the property, which opens into a vast open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with a spacious farmhouse-style feel to it. In the centre of the room is a wooden dining table and beyond that, running the length of the room is the country-house style kitchen, with butler sink, electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. The focal point of this area is a huge Welsh dresser, adding to the rustic, shabby-chic feel. The sitting area of the room is cosy and inviting, with large sofa, armchairs and a wooden chest. There is a TV and CD player. The master bedroom is situated to the right of the front door and has a magnificent four-poster bed and chandelier. This room is located in one of the oast’s roundels, making it an extra special place to stay. A sumptuous bathroom has a stunning roll top bath and a book case, making a real sanctuary. A second roundel is home to a wet room with large overhead shower head. Next to this is the second bedroom which is located in the third roundel with twin beds. There is also an additional twin bedroom which is located in the eaves and has limited headroom and is only accessible by ladder, making it not suitable for children under the age of 8.
In the garden a pretty wooden table sits under a tree with up-cycled chairs, ideal for al fresco meals. There is also a zip-line and tree house, children must be supervised when using these please. Venture down to the field and you’ll meet the resident donkeys, Ping Pong and Viking.
