The large sitting room has a feature exposed brick wall and fireplace with a wood burning stove and under floor heating through out the ground floor.

Sissinghurst Castle and gardens are on the doorstep and it is only a short drive to the lovely old towns of Cranbrook and Tenterden. There are a variety of vineyards locally all offering tours and tastings which you won't want to miss and a great selection of foodie pubs with delicious local produce - this is the Garden of England after all.
