This truly stunning oast house conversion stands in the grounds of an ancient Manor House- surrounded by paddocks and fields. Washenden Oast has been imaginatively designed to retain as many features of the original oast house - used to store and dry the once plentiful hops that were grown widely throughout Kent for the brewing of wonderful local beers. The owners have furnished it with great care to provide a very special holiday home for their guests. Biddenden village is only a short drive away - for pubs, shops and restaurants and the popular country towns of Tenterden and Cranbrook with their eclectic mix of shops and eateries are equidistant. Washenden Oast is in the perfect central location for exploring all that Kent has to offer and will be calling you home after a busy day sight seeing to relax and enjoy a little touch of luxury country living. Short breaks accepted only  in the Winter months.  Shop: 1.5 miles  Pub: 1.5 miles  Coast: 21 miles

The property was excellent. The fittings, kitchen, bedding, crockery etc were perfect for a family short stay. WE even managed to cook and serve Xmas lunch for 12 people without an effort or the need of extras - with the exception of borrowing a trestle table! Mr Tim Williams - 6th January 2019

Excellent location - incredibly scenic and peaceful, and yet not far from shops and eateries. Very well designed layout inside - perfect for a family wanting to spend time together.
