In the heart of the countryside, this one-bedroom cabin has been hand-crafted to maximise the wrap-around, far-reaching views, perfect for anyone looking to immerse themselves in the natural world. Biddenden is a large, traditional-style village set in the picturesque rural countryside, located in the Weald of Kent. Spanning 23 acres of gentle south-facing slopes situated in a sheltered valley, explore Biddenden Vineyards, 4 miles away – Kent's original vineyard that grows 12 different grape varieties, and offers breathtaking tours plus wine tastings. Experience true relaxation at Bloomsburys Spa Retreat (1.5 miles) located through the lovely healing gardens, offering you a wide range of cutting-edge, luxurious beauty treatments alongside relaxing spa treatments. Travel back in time at the Kent and East Sussex Railway, 7 miles away, the country’s first light railway, aboard a heritage steam or diesel train with carriages that feature old-fashioned family compartments.

A spacious entrance hallway welcomes you into the cabin, complete with a small seating area and plenty of coat and boot storage, leading you into the open-plan living, kitchen and dining area, flooded with natural light from the large picture window. The living area enjoys magnificent views out of the picture window, complemented by a comfy sofa and a TV. At the opposite end of the space, you’ll find a set of patio doors out to the garden, as well as a well-equipped contemporary kitchen, complete with farmhouse-style décor and a romantic dining table and chairs. Back through the cabin, you’ll find a spacious king-size bedroom featuring the same conscientious and cosy décor as the rest of the cabin, plus a contemporary en-suite wet room. The cabin is set at ground level.

Outside, you’ll find a small, decked area, leading onto a spacious fenced-off area of lawn housing a wonderful private hot tub and chiminea, perfect for all seasons. Outside, you also have access to a utility room shared with the cabin next door, complete with two washing machines. The neighbouring fields form part of a working cattle and sheep farm.

The Bolthole was very comfortable, warm & well equipped. A lot of thought has gone into the place, shown by all the special little touches, especially in the kitchen & bathroom. This was our first holiday as dog owners so we didnt know what to expect, but everything our pup needed, we had at hand. Thank you for giving us a wonderful week.

This property is beautiful, the property is in a good location easy to get to things like shops and pubs, and restaurants, but it feels like you are a million miles away in the middle of nowhere whilst sitting relaxing in the hot tub.

The huts are clean and bright with large windows to allow you to take in the amazing views. The hot tub is located to the back of the property to give you privacy and star gaze in the evening.
