Property code: 78982

This lovely part time working pub is located in the heart of the Kent countryside and retains its original bar for guests to enjoy. It is beautifully decorated throughout and offers a boutique style holiday home full vivid colour, fascinating furniture and antique finds.

Bursting with charm and character, settle at this part time working pub and enjoy endless lock ins. Bright colours, traditional features and rustic charm create a truly unique atmosphere with cosy comforts such as the wood burner and oil-fired Rayburn making you feel at home. Perfect for get-togethers with family, friends and a pair of pups, spend time in the bar area before firing up the BBQ in the enclosed garden.

 

Whether you’re after a sociable night filled with tipples and treats or a quiet moment curled up in front of the wood burner, this home has something for everyone. Splashes of colour liven up the light lounge where you can sit in front of the Smart TV, play the piano or sit and enjoy a good book on the comfortable sofas. Get competitive and enjoy a game or two of shove ha’penny or play darts and hoopla in the bar- the perfect spot for shaking cocktails or pouring pints, before dining together inside or out. Compact yet well-equipped, find all you need to feed hungry guests in the kitchen where you’ll also find a stash of recipe books, a DAB radio and a coffee machine for those early mornings. A trio of inviting bedrooms share the family bathroom on the first floor where you can indulge in a post-adventure soak.

 

Tear yourself away from your Grade II-listed home and explore the local area and the High Weald AONB. Great for walkers, cyclists and pups, tracks and trails wind their way around the AONB and pubs dotted among the villages offer somewhere to whet your appetite. The majestic Hever Castle and Gardens (2.5 miles) is the former home of Anne Boleyn whilst Churchill’s house at Chartwell (7.5 miles) and Penshurst Place and Gardens (5.5 miles) are also historic hot spots great for family days out.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage was absolutely perfect. Everyone in our group had a great time owning our own pub for a few days. Everything was well equipped and extremely clean.

My 6 yr old Grandson is very good at gathering the wood for the fire, (lovely and cosy), my 12 yr old Grand daughter can now play a few tunes on the piano, and my 17 yr old Grand daughter has discovered a new talent. She had never picked up a set of darts before, yet within 2 hrs accomplished "round the clock" in 3 mins 36 secs. Precious time, precious memories. Would recommend to anyone and will return with friends and their children. Such a fun place with so much history to appreciate. The property was very clean, everything you need is there.

This is a really fun location for a small group of people. It is really well equipped, with lots of lovely touches such as a nice welcome pack, and it is great fun playing all the games that are provided. The weather was pretty grim at the start of our holiday but the generous stacks of firewood made sure that we had a very cosy time. Thank you

Fabulous old pub dating back to the mid 1800's. Looked as if the pub had closed the previous night - still retained the bars and equipment. There is even a guitar and piano if you fancy a sing-a-long. Facilities were good and there is plenty of nostalgia and memorabilia. A credit to the owners and I really enjoyed my stay.

This cottage (old pub) is situated on a crossroads right next to the road. From 6am till 9am the traffic noise is relentless waking us up at 6:00 every day. In the afternoon/evening the traffic builds up again and can be heard loudly in the garden.
