Standing in the wonderful grounds of Romden Castle is this very welcoming converted coach house - offering a relaxed and comfortable holiday home for all the family to enjoy. The exceptionally quiet location is just bliss - add to that the swimming pool, the tennis court and the beautiful large pond - this just has to be the perfect place for a really great holiday. The castle dates from the 13th Century with many later additions including the tower so is steeped in history. Nearby are the "chocolate box" villages of Smarden and Bethersden for local shopping, pubs, art gallery and it is only 4 miles to Pluckley - the most haunted village in Kent!  The popular cinque port town of Tenterden with its tree-lined High Street, full of interesting shops, eateries and leisure centre is only seven miles and Ashford for the famous designer outlet and fast trains to London, Brussels and Paris is an easy drive away. There are also trains from nearby Headcorn or Pluckley into Charing Cross.  Shop: 1 mile Pub: 1 mile  Coast: 22 miles

Lovely place to stay! Everything was perfect. Good location for several day trips to Canterbury, London (we parked at Elephant and Castle and continued with the underground), Penshurst Place, the coast, shopping at Ashford, a wine farm etc.Mrs Bosselaar from The Netherlands - 15th August 2014
The Coach House was a very well appointed, comfortable and thoroughly pleasant place to stay. It was quiet and had plenty of space both inside and out. Owners were perfect hosts, very helpful, friendly and welcoming. An excellent property, would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area.Mr Ashford from Cheshire - 12th August 2014
My family and I stayed here for a week in the beginning of May 2013. We really loved the house and loved its location. No traffic noise to be heard, only the occasional tractor. The rooms are decorated individually and to a high standard. Cooking on the Aga was great fun. I can really recommend a stay in Romden Coach House.Chiu family from The Netherlands - 7th May 1970
