Located just 4 miles away from the pretty spa town of Tunbridge Wells, is this wonderful property, set in a peaceful location.

In the grounds of a 17th century Grade II listed house, resides the stylishly renovated Bothy. It was once the gardener’s quarters and now it enjoys its own large walled and fenced garden with a delightful terrace from which to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. In the wintertime just curl up in front of the woodburner after a bracing stroll through the countryside. It is just 4 miles from the spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells with the historic Pantiles, an array of resplendent shops, Michelin starred restaurant and theatre. This well thought out holiday home is situated on the edge of the pretty village of Fordcombe within The High Weald (AONB), an ideal base for exploring Kent and East Sussex. There are so many historic places of interest to visit, including the beautiful Knole House in Sevenoaks, where Johnny Depp was spotted filming ’Pirates of the Caribbean on Stranger Tides’. The Arts and Crafts House Standen near East Grinstead and Winston Churchill’s home at Chartwell are also worth a visit. Bodiam is a lovely town, from where you can take a trip on the Kent and Sussex Railway. Beautiful beaches can be reached within the hour and an excellent train service takes you into the centre of London. Gatwick, 35 minutes, and lunch in Paris is also an option via the Eurostar terminal from Ebbsfleet, so bring your passport! Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
