The Lookers Legacy is a beautifully renovated traditional brick Lookers Hut surrounded by peaceful countryside next to a vineyard.  Lookers would use these huts as their accommodation whilst caring for their flocks.  This pet-friendly property is nestled in a tranquil spot and has been stylishly renovated into the perfect country escape for two.  The open plan living area is dominated by the double bi- folding doors which open onto a secluded terrace with a luxury hot tub and stunning far reaching views over the Romney Marsh.  The modern interior is sympathetic to the original design and has been carefully extended to let natural light flood into the rooms.  The entire property has been furnished with luxurious touches and there is a cosy wood burning stove for those chilly evenings.  The most striking feature of this property is the stunning rural location with walking from your doorstep, easy access to the Saxon Shore Way and a footpath which will take you to the pet friendly Ferry Inn - renowned for its seasonal Rye Bay Scallops. Tenterden and historic Rye are close by as are the golden sands at Camber, perfect for exploring in all weathers.

Thank you both so much for a wonderfully peaceful and restful stay at Lookers Legacy and what a lovely area for walking. You have made such a perfect couple's retreat. Staying in a comfy and cosy cottage (and we do this often) with just the main things around you that you need (not all the extras we seem to have around us in our own homes) makes for a truly chilled time. The added luxury of the hot tub was really lovely though. We were fascinating by the vine planting, Richard particularly from his New Holland connection and interest. As a maths teacher I just love the regularity and symmetry of the planting, thanks to GPS!! If we were there last night or today we just might have lit the fire!! We really enjoyed our evening dinners at the Ferry Inn. such a great place. Delicious and varied food and drinks, and lovely staff. I did enjoy picking blackberries- the only ones I have had time to pick this year and right on our doorstep. Delicious cooked and with Greek yoghurt!! I realised this morning that I had not written in your visitors book! It was great reading all the lovely comments. Christmas must be quite something at Lookers!! I did find the garden set in Tenterden but have delayed buying it for now as he says it is always available. Thank you both again and we really look forward to coming back.

Diane and R,

Loved it! Very peaceful and relaxing environment. Comfortable, cosy and unique property with everything you could need. We felt very well rested - just what we needed.

Ms Dawn R,

Imaginative and stylish redevelopment of a historic looker's hut. Beautiful and interesting area.

Mr Ian C,

It was perfect

Mr Hochholdinger J,

Perfect hide away

Mrs Cordula S,

It was ideal, exactly as described.

Sim D,

Wonderful property, we just loved it.

Ms S,

I was very impressed with communication between myself, the K&S office and the property owner when I had queries.

Miss Sally-Ann S,

A genuinely wonderful place! It's small but perfectly formed. Owners have really done an outstanding job. A really beautifully thought through property set in idyllic countryside. There wasn't anything we didn't like and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. Fantastic proprietors. An all round wonderful stay!

Mr Joe B,

Owners were very accommodating to our requests and also great at recommending local restaurants and sites. The Lookers Legacy was clean, cosy and stylish inside and had all the amenities we needed. Location has great views and very relaxed. Only wish we stayed longer.” “Thanks so much for your flexibility and assistance for the weekend. Aside from the proposal, we had a great stay and was sad to be leaving so soon. Was very cosy when the weather was not so great but equally we look forward to coming back in better weather. Thanks again and all the best.”

Previous Customer,

***** (5Star) Lovely private holiday home to stay in with beautiful views out of every window. The property has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. We would love to come and stay again. Thanks for letting us stay with our dogs

Angelo and C,

Perfect holiday property for the two of us and not a single thing wrong. Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend.

C W,

Very peaceful and quiet just as we wanted. Very clean and modern facilities internally and at the same it was rural and original

Angela F,

Astonishing property in an astonishing location!

Audrey F,

Fabulous property in a beautiful location

Mrs Sarah F,

Fantastic location. Very quiet, but within easy reach of amenities

Wilma H,

Nothing but good things to say, we LOVED our stay in this little haven. Haven’t seen such a well done conversion and the touches made it feel more lovely and luxurious. Impressed by Netflix sub. Stunning location, will definitely be back. Many thanks to the owners.

Ms Louella F,

Excellent property in good location.

Mr W,

As we were only the 4th couple to stay there it was in very good condition and beautifully done. The "landscaping" hasn't been done but when the grass or whatever they put down gets going it will look less bare. Nothing to grumble about though. We had contact with the owners and they couldn't have been more eager to please. Zapped the ants for us! It suited us down to the ground in the middle of fields and vines. The smallness does need to be underlined because there is very little storage and it might drive people mad with everything around them.

Mr P W,

This is a beautifully crafted little property. It cleverly packs in everything you need into the tiniest space and is incredibly charming and cosy as a result. Beautifully designed, with some lovely design details - the owners have a good eye for design! The interior makes great use of the natural brickwork - just lovely. Windows on two sides of the lounge space make this a lovely place to sit and relax and gaze at the countryside including wandering sheep and grouse. In warmer weather the windows can be opened up onto the patio - so it's perfect for all seasons. We stayed in early spring when it was still chilly, so we were glad of the logburner and plentiful logs provided - as well as the Netflix subscription! The cottage is remote enough to feel like a little hideaway but very close to the village. The local pub is lovely - unspoilt with good food and big log fires. I loved this place and would happily stay here again. Highly recommend it. Travel light though - as it's a small space, there's not huge amounts of storage space of course.

Miss Marie S,
