Description

This single-storey barn conversion is the perfect base for a romantic break away, with the opportunity to spend an afternoon wine tasting at Hush Heath.

In the ‘Garden of England’, where the apple orchards blossom, on the outskirts of the pretty Kentish Wealden village of Staplehurst, lies this single-storey barn with level access. It adjoins the owner’s home and is surrounded by glorious Kentish countryside. Maplehurst Barn Stables makes an excellent base for walking or cycling and is within walking distance of the local pub. Visit Hush Heath, the state of the art winery, with a beautiful 400-acre estate, where some of England’s most iconic still and sparkling wines, and ciders are produced. Visitors can join a guided vineyard and tasting tour.
Garden lovers should head towards the National Trust owned Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens, which once belonged to the writer Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicholson and is one of the most famous gardens in England achieving Grade I Status. Should you wish to shop, head over to McArthur Glen at Ashford, the designer discount outlet, where you cannot fail to bag a bargain.
Described as the ‘loveliest castle in the world’, Leeds Castle is nestled near the county town of Maidstone, where you can also enjoy open air concerts in the summer. Tunbridge Wells is half an hour’s drive away and offers Jazz on the Pantiles and many fine dining experience. Beaches can be found at Hastings and Camber Sands and there are very good rail connections to London offering the theatre and additional sightseeing opportunities. Should you bring your passport, board a train at Ashford and have lunch in Paris or Bruges. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    Really comfy holiday home. Everything that was needed was there. A real home from home. Pauline was a perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. Welcome pack of bread, jam, tea and coffee was much appreciated. We phoned ahead because we knew that we would be late and Pauline was there to greet us and had put the heating on. The driveway to the property was very muddy, due to the amount of rain that we had previously had, but we were warned before arrival.

    This was a delightful place both inside and out. Spacious living, kitchen and bathroom, bedroom a little smaller but more than adequate. The owner was welcoming and friendly and left a very useful welcome pack of food stuffs. The surroundings are open and quiet but not too far from main roads to enable visits elsewhere.

    If you like a quiet location, this may be for you. Beautifully appointed furnishings and fittings, all on one level, the only steps at the rear - down to the back lawn from the decking area. The lawn is also accessible from the side of the property. We enjoyed a lovely Autumn week, and could certainly recommend this property. The owners are close by if needed, and were very friendly and helpful - sent us home with plums & apples. The only thing we missed was a dishwasher - not a problem with only two of us.

    Comfortable cottage in a quiet and peaceful location. This was our second stay and we enjoy watching the birds, wildlife and horses in the evenings on our return from our days out. We had good weather during our stay and never turned the TV on as we were enjoying our surroundings instead. Comfortable bed, nice shower and generous welcome pack. We hope to return again.

    Very nice rural location, very peaceful (apart from the morning call from the local pack of crows devouring the food from the bird feeders!). Our host was very courteous and helpful. The converted barn was of high order in terms of cleanliness and spec. of equipment etc.. A couple of low beams here and there, but that added to the character of the place. A shaving point in the bathroom would have been handy and a dodgy/damaged control knob on the oven kept us guessing, but overall it was a higher than average standard and would definitely recommend you trying it out. Very good base for seeing the delights Kent has to offer!

    Very enjoyable stay, quiet rural environment. Plenty of wildlife to watch and comical friendly horses to watch in the field adjacent to the cottage. Very hospitable hosts who provide a nice welcome pack of eggs, bread, butter and milk. Full Sky Tv package which is an excellent addition. Kitchen is fully equipped, less a dishwasher, with there only being two of us this wasn’t really an issue. You won’t be disappointed with any booking you make for this cottage.

    This was a wonderful gem of a place and Pauline made us feel really welcome. A delightful welcome gift was left and the accommodation gave us the peace and quiet we were looking forward to. We may well be back this year as we miss the horses and the action at the bird feeder! Thank you both.
