Stands out in the countryside but very expensive for what it is.Feel I am helping the owner to pay for the refurbishment. Compared to the price of entry to some if the NT propitious near by thus us not value for money

Glorious building, imaginatively and beautifully restored, which makes for an incomparable stay. However, do take your own radiator key for bleeding the 4th floor (best) bedroom radiators, which are presumably at the end of the run, otherwise in winter you might find you spend a...More

You must go and see the tower if you are anywhere near or plan to visit Kent. It's open on Thursdays throughout spring to autumn. The outside is stunning and the inside has been really well refurbished into a holiday rental. We'd love to stay...More
