Property code: BT094

This stunning showman’s carriage is located within 200 acres of farmland, under the watchful eye of the imposing Bodiam Castle. You really could not be closer to this wonderful historic sight, with its moat and extensive grounds. Also located just a few moments from the cottage is one of the stations for the vintage steam trains which run along a ten-mile route from Bodiam to the small town of Tenterden, with its high street of interesting shops and its Old Dairy Brewery where you can take a tour and taste the ales.

Originally a showman’s carriage, built in 1894, you can really feel the atmosphere of this beautifully restored property, which has found its final resting place here. Inside the carriage is a cornucopia of original features including the mahogany woodwork, tiled fireplace and imitation woodburner. In the cosy  lounge, there is even a TV with DVD player and a CD player and gas heater, so there is no need to forego your creature comforts. To one end of the carriage is the cosy and romantic raised bed, which is slightly smaller than a regular double. The kitchen and bathroom are each located in two adjacent buildings which are right outside. The thatched kitchen/dining room has everything you will need including a sink, small cooker,  small fridge and a small railway-style table, which has stunning views to the countryside beyond. The bathroom is a wet room with shower and WC and is found on the opposite side  of the decked area to the kitchen.

Outside the carriage is a raised decked-area which has an secluded enclosed veranda, from which to enjoy  views across to Bodiam Castle. This space provides a wonderful outdoor living space, with comfortable wicker chairs and table.

There are four other similar properties on the same site, The Sir Paul Gooderham, Goldings Lodge, The Lady Stella and Lady Jane.

Perfect location for a very quiet peaceful break, to wake up in the morning and only the birds and frogs can be heard.

The Prince Regent was perfect, beautiful and restored to perfection. Wonderful views from the outside sitting area, Bodiam Castle and the sounds of the steam trains was the icing on the cake. We didn't want to go hone.

Lovely quirky place to stay. We have two medium size dogs and it was a squeeze so ideal for one or two small dogs. Nice walks and a pub within walking distance.
