Originally an Oast House where hops were dried for brewing beer, Dering Cottage is located in the beautifully tended grounds of the owners' stunning barn conversion. The old roundel now forms an attractive patio area set in lovely gardens with views across the fields. This beautifully presented cottage is ideal for 3 guests or couples wishing to have their own room and offers stylish accommodation with lots of attention to detail. It is situated just one mile from the picturesque village of Smarden with its notable church and popular pubs and art gallery. It is an ideal base for touring the castles, gardens and National Trust properties in the area.  Accessed via security gates and a gravel drive, this charming holiday home has been equipped to provide guests with every comfort.

Very relaxing, cosy place to stay. Beautiful garden setting surrounded by fields. Some lovely stately homes and gardens to visit nearby. The owners were very friendly and gave us some great tips on where to eat and places to visit. We would definitely return.
