An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


An ideal touring base for family or friends wishing to discover this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Kent and Sussex.

This stunning Grade ll listed oast is unique to the Kent and Sussex countryside, in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This delightful holiday property offers a plethora of beams and an abundance of character, with glorious views across the rolling countryside, particularly from the first floor living space. Originally used to dry hops grown locally, which were then sent to the brewer’s to be used for flavouring beers. Sadly, the twin roundels and the cowl at the top of the kiln has long since disappeared, but the main part of the barn, which was used for the actual storing of hops prior to drying, still has an oak winch in the living area as a reminder of its working past. Situated adjacent to the owner’s 16th-century house built by a Wealden ironmaster, on a delightful, rural, single track lane, guests can access the orchard, tennis court and owner’s paddocks which slope down to the stream at the bottom of the valley. Wadhurst village is close by, and Royal Tunbridge Wells is 7 miles. Bewl Water offers cycle hire, fishing and boating activities. Visit Bateman’s, Rudyard Kipling’s family home (NT), Bodiam Castle (NT), and the beautiful gardens at Scotney Castle and Pashley Manor, or simply enjoy the many walks through the beautiful Sussex countryside directly from the property. Take the opportunity to explore the award-winning English vineyards in the area and sample some superb wines. Wadhurst railway station, 3 miles, provides good connections to London and further sightseeing opportunities. Beach 20 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

Beamed kitchen/dining room with wooden floor. Double bedroom with 6ft bed (zip and link, can be twin). Separate toilet. First floor: Beamed living room with wooden floor, low beams and low doorway.

    An absolutely beautiful converted oast house overlooking the unique wooded hills of the High Weald. Friendly and helpful owners who made us feel very welcome. Already looking forward to staying again!

    Good cottage , well-appointed overall. The very low beams in sitting room were difficult to manage when carrying a baby.

    Lovely house, historically interesting and a very high quality oast house 'barn' conversion; well equipped and tastefully furnished. Smallish upstairs windows meant it didn't cope so well with a record-breaking heatwave and the low beams took a bit of getting used to. But we would certainly go again. Not only the house but the surrounding garden area, paddock and field were major assets. The location was beautifully quiet, the countryside lush and all sorts of attractions within easy reach. It should be noted that there is a main railway line close by but it runs through a deep cutting, is invisible and absolutely doesn't impact negatively.
