Cottage
The cottage was a tumble-down Silver Smith's workshop and stable dating from the early 1800s. It has just had a total renovation and is now the ideal location for a peaceful retreat. It is situated at the end of a private lane that leads into open countryside between the hamlet of Hunton and Yalding village. The village of Yalding has excellent pubs, an Indian restaurant, a cafe (for great coffee), monthly Farmers' Market, the excellent Yalding Organic Gardens, a village shop, post office, access to the river Medway (canoeing etc) and many historic buildings and features. On entering the front door there is a cloakroom to the right with a large walk-in shower. The next room is a twin bedroom with plenty of built-in storage. Most of the ground floor is taken up by the kitchen / diner...The cottage was a tumble-down Silver Smith's workshop and stable dating from the early 1800s.

Most of the ground floor is taken up by the kitchen / diner and sitting room. The kitchen is large and has a dishwasher, washing machine and fridge. The dining table seats six and there are two sofas, a TV, stereo and a fabulous wood-burning stove. Under-floor heating is fitted throughout the ground floor. The main bedroom is upstairs and has a generous en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath. The cottage has its own private garden and terrace, use of the adjoining field, private parking, use of the owners' tennis court and large barbecue. The cottage would suit a family looking for a quiet, rural, summer holiday or those looking for a cosy winter break, snuggled inside with the wood-burning stove. The building has been insulated with modern products and holds the heat in winter and is cool in the summer.More

About the neighbourhood
There are several good local pubs and restaurants in the area and there are an array of varied, local footpaths from the cottage. The Hop Farm is ten minutes away and this has several good events throughout the yearLeeds Castle is twenty minutes drive away and is an idyllic spot around which to roam. Henry VIII built Leeds Castle to impress his various women folk and it seemed to work. Hever Castle is also close, childhood home of Anne Boleyn, and the great city of Canterbury is an easy hour's drive. Don't forget the chic coastal town of Whitstable which is 45 minutes away and is definitely worth a trip. The 'Sportsman' restaurant is just down the beach from Whitstable and has one Michelin star; best lunch I have had in years. The fish market is also a gem and the locally farmed oyst...
