This beautiful former oast house sleeping up to twelve people is the ideal place for all the family to get together and enjoy a holiday in the Kent countryside.

Get the extended family together and enjoy a trip to beautiful Kent, where this remarkably charming property boasts space for up to 12 guests to call home.

Step inside to find a large selection of generous rooms, boasting more than enough space for all to unwind. The decor has been kept simple and welcoming, contributing to making this the perfect family home. The heart of this house is its impressive farmhouse kitchen which has been updated with all the mod-cons to make cooking for 12 an absolute doddle.

Be sure to make use of the outdoor space when blessed with better weather, diving into the pool, enjoying a drink in the hot tub or simply dining alfresco in the Kent sunshine.

Take a trip to the local village of Headcorn (2.5 miles) to visit a welcoming pub or stock up on supplies.
