Located in the hamlet of Lenham Heath, this gorgeous annexe is perfect for a peaceful getaway in the heart of the Kent countryside. On the doorstep lies the Lenham Heath Nature Reserve, ideal for country walks and wildlife watching. This cottage is also well-positioned to explore many of the region’s famous castles, including Leeds Castle, Dover Castle and Rochester Castle. More heritage days out can also be enjoyed nearby at the several local National Trust properties, including Knowle House, Ightham Mote and Chartwell, the former home of Winston Churchill. The cottage is also close to Tunbridge Wells for a day of shopping as well as the cathedral city of Canterbury.

Upon entering the property you’ll come into the airy and open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, the perfect place to unwind in after a day of exploring the area. The lounge has a comfortable sofa to kick back on, where you can also catch up on your favourite shows on the TV/DVD. Behind the lounge lies the kitchen area, offering everything you need for a comfortable stay including an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge. Over in the dining area, you’ll find a table and chairs to seat three, ideal for hearty breakfasts and cosy evening meals. The shower room is also located on the ground floor, with a shower cubicle and WC. Upstairs, you’ll find the two bedrooms, both with restricted head height: one spacious double bedroom and one single.

Outside of the property, guests will be able to unwind in the sunshine on the enclosed garden patio, complete with garden furniture and a BBQ. From here you can enjoy the far-reaching views out across the surrounding countryside as well as the owners’ neighbouring paddock, where their horses and donkeys graze. Ample off-road parking is available.
