This lovingly refurbished carriage presents quirky accommodation in a stunning countryside setting, perfect for celebrating a special occasion with a loved one or a romantic getaway for two.

With beautiful countryside surrounding this unique property, there’s plenty of stunning rural walks to embark on and awe-inspiring views to be seen. The local pub and well-stocked farm shop and café are within easy reach, and historic Bodiam Castle can be seen from the carriage, making for a fantastic cultural day out. The nearby market town of Tenterden can be reached via train on the Kent and East Sussex railway, and features a whole array of independent shops, restaurants, and amenities. There are plenty of footpaths and attractions in the surrounding area to keep you busy for your entire holiday.

Accessed via a wooden ramp, you enter the cabin to be greeted by the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner. There is ample space in the lounge for two people to relax after a day of exploration, with comfortable seating, a TV and a wood burner to create a homely atmosphere. The kitchen is compact yet well-appointed, comprising of a gas oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer, and there is a dining space situated just off of it. The bedroom is at the opposite end of the cabin, and is a cosy space accessed through a sliding door for privacy. It features a double bed, and there is an en-suite shower plus a separate WC.

The outside space of this property, offering privacy and seclusion, is certainly a major part of its appeal; the covered veranda where there is a ample seating including a comfortable sofa and armchairs. You will also find a large wooden table, two built-in benches, and a table heater, so it’s ideal whatever the weather. The lawn area is tranquil for laying out in the sun, and there is also an unfenced pond to the rear of the cabin. There is ample off-road parking next to the cabin.

A fantastic getaway, with great views and a lovely location. Ok for any weather and for peace and tranquility. The hot tub included with the property looks out to the nearby Bodiam Castle and links with the outdoor covered area, lovely to be able to sit out whatever the weather. The Hub, a local cafe, is located within a short walk and offers lovelRead morey breakfast and lunches, as well as cakes and sells local produce including wines, beers and ciders. A great break and would definitely recommend it Hide

Excellent location. Undercover outside deck really useful, with a view of the castle whilst sitting in the hot tub! Plenty of space to exercise the dog. Fridge not as small as the website makes it sound. Kitchen equipment basic. Dogs are very welcome.

The Lady Stella is in need of a lot of TLC as she has sadly not aged well.
