The Nutshell offers luxurious country living and is located just outside the pretty village of Pluckley with two good pubs within a mile, one renowned for its seafood, a lovely farm shop and is famous for being one of the most haunted villages in Kent.  This property has been carefully restored to a high standard and has been furnished with flair giving a contemporary edge to the open plan living area.  The property has retained its original beams and is spacious and light, whilst being warm and cosy with a wood burning stove and has a majestic centre piece copper bath.  There is a covered loggia seating area by the entrance as well as a courtyard garden, where you can sit and enjoy a glass of something while whilst taking in the glorious views. The countryside is surrounded by apple orchards and is remembered as the location where the Darling Buds of May TV series was filmed.  You can hop on the local train - just one stop to Ashford with fast trains to Canterbury, the East Kent coast, London or even Paris.  The owners have an acclaimed photographic studio in the grounds, so why not plan ahead and start your Christmas gift list early!
