Green oak, black weatherboards, Kent peg tiles and traditional outside steps up to your retreat… this looks like an old converted barn but was built in 2008. The studio/bedroom has a seating area with TV, inviting linen on a snug bed under the eaves; fridge, biscuits, sweets and prosecco too. Tina’s arty workshop is below; electricity and hot water are solar-powered, rainwater recycled. Lots of breakfast choices: in your room or over in Tina and Doug’s dining room; she’s an avid jam-maker, eggs are from their hens, bacon from the farmer across the lane. Sun trap terraces and views; walks start from the door and Canterbury is close.
