This stylishly furnished grade 2 listed property set in the owners grounds is approached via winding country lanes. The property overlooks a large pond with open fields beyond, and is the ideal property for those looking to get away from it all.
Set on the outskirts of the charming weavers’ village of Smarden, this cottage enjoys an excellent location in the heart of the glorious Kentish countryside. Smarden itself is steeped in history, with some of its buildings even dating back as far as the fourth century. For even more fascinating history, head to the majestic Leeds and Bodiam Castles located nearby, or enjoy a gentle ride of the Kent & East Sussex steam railway to explore more of the region with ease. Sissinghurst is home to some stunning gardens which are well worth a visit, while those looking for their beach fix will find Camber Sands, Dungeness and Hastings all within a short drive.
As you enter this property on the ground floor, you’ll be welcomed by the cosy open-plan lounge/diner, a lovely and rustically decorated space with wooden beams on the ceilings and an open log fire (logs and kindling can be requested on arrival). It’s the ideal place to relax, with a TV/DVD and plenty of comfortable seating. The country-style kitchen, with its slate tiles, is also a charming space well-equipped with an electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and microwave. The property’s bathroom can also be found on the ground floor, with a shower over bath and WC. Upstairs, the bedroom is accessed via a low doorway, and contains a comfortable double bed.
Outside of the property, the cottage is surrounded by a shaded garden area, featuring a patio area as well as plenty of seating, where you can sit back, relax and look out over the neighbouring large pond and the open fields beyond.
