Description

The Old Potting Room is set in a lovely peaceful garden close to the historic small town of Cranbrook.   With its bustling high street, Cranbrook offers all the charms of a medieval country town but with lots of amenities necessary for modern living.  The Old Potting Room has been thoughtfully converted to create a comfortable and charming escape for two with under floor heating and a cosy wood burning stove.  The open plan living area is stylish and relaxed and has lovely garden views.  This is an ideal base from which to explore the High Weald of Kent and Sussex with many National Trust houses and gardens within easy distance including the world famous gardens at Sissinghurst and Scotney Castle. There are many pub restaurants locally as well as golf courses and fishing lakes.  The area is also perfect for walkers and cyclists with good access to woodland paths at Bedgebury forest and boating at Bewl Water.  Explore the tree lined high street of Tenderden with its pavement cafes and independent shops and then hop on a steam train to visit the moated ruins at Bodiam Castle. The Sussex coastline is also within an easy drive, so why not plan a visit to the ancient town of Rye and the seven miles of sandy beaches at Camber Sands.

Reviews

This property is perfect for visiting so many National Trust properties nearby and thoroughly enjoyed visiting Scotney Castle, Bodiam Castle, Sissinghurst Castle Gardens and Batemans. It is also easy to reach the coast where we visited Rye and Camber Sands. The local area is outstandingly beautiful.
