Description

Hawkridge Oast is an idyllic country house, sleeping 10 adults and 2 children, perfect for a large family gathering, offering a good standard of accommodation and creating a comfortable, warm and welcoming holiday home. It was once a double oast barn, dating from 1880, when the roundels were originally used to dry hops.  There is a spacious figure-of-8 sitting room with double French doors, opening on to a terrace with stunning views over the extensive gardens.  The large sitting room has a feature exposed brick wall and fireplace with a wood burning stove and under floor heating through out the ground floor. There is a large well-equipped open plan kitchen and dining area, perfect for modern living and with five double bedrooms, one a family room with bunk beds, this property certainly offers great flexible accommodation.  Sissinghurst Castle and gardens are on the doorstep and it is only a short drive to the lovely old towns of Cranbrook and Tenterden. There are a variety of vineyards locally all offering tours and tastings which you won't want to miss and a great selection of  foodie pubs with delicious local produce - this is the Garden of England after all.

Reviews

Great property and excellent location and brilliant service by your team thank you

Mrs Sharon Cannon,

Beautiful property, very well equipped

Barbara Arundale,

A lovely location which feels rural and peaceful but also very convenient for attractions such as Sissinghurst Gardens, Bedgebury and Winery Vineyards. The pleasant towns of Cranbrook and Tenterden are close and historic Rye Just a bit further away.

Mrs Wendy Whitehead,

It was a lovely property.

Mrs J Douglas,

We adored the house and had a wonderful long weekend. We will definitely book Hawkridge Oast again. Wonderful house, very well-equipped and comfortable.

Mrs Ellie Pullan,

We all 11 in total had a good weeks break at the Oast house.A lovely property and for us we felt very spacious inside and out in the garden.
