Description

In the heart of the Weald of Kent, Iden Green Farm Stables is a haven of tranquility waiting to lift the world from your shoulders. This superb stable conversion promises halcyon days in bucolic countryside.

Peace and serenity

Step inside to feel the warmth and history of the place that in the winter months is enhanced by the luxury of underfloor heating and a wood burning stove. Time out in the countryside, appreciating its hush and its lushness is particularly appealing from the garden where the views across the Weald abound. Afternoon tea around the handcrafted garden furniture could become a habit.

Inside, the former life and the age of the building are apparent in the beautifully exposed beamwork and the lower than usual doorways on the first floor. The farmhouse style kitchen has a beautifully handcrafted worktop. Extending into the dining area, the terracotta tile floor is cool in the heat of summer and heated for you in chillier months. Breakfast or supper around the large farmhouse dining table can flow out through the double doors on the terrace where children can play safely in the garden.

Beyond the house, the High Weald AONB is yours to explore. Bring your National Trust membership cards to discover Sissinghurst Castle and Scotney Castle, both of which are just a short drive from the Stables. History buffs will love a day trip to Hastings and to Rye where cobbled streets and the legacy of battles long ago fought contribute to pretty coastal towns to occupy visitors new and returning. To appease those in need of sea air and sandcastles the long-stretching golden sands of Camber are a beautiful sight over the dunes after a pretty meander via the marshland.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Three double bedrooms call you to sleep of an evening in the eaves of this beautiful building. The Red Room and Blue Room are both spacious rooms with views in two directions. The ornate metalwork bed of the Green Room draws you into this cosy double for a heavenly night’s sleep with little more than the dawn chorus to rouse you.

Reviews

Fabulous stables next to the owners and their oast house in a very quiet and beautiful area of South Kent. We stayed with our 1-year-old for five nights and had a lovely time. The house is spacious, full of character, clean and has everything you need. The owners are lovely - Genevieve provided us with a stair gate (essential), high chair and travel cot, as well as a sheet which i'd forgotten. I wanted somewhere where my son could safely run around without us having to watch him like a hawk and it largely delivered; the garden was sadly a little off limits (for him at least) due to a spring at the bottom of the grassed area having sprung up, making for a rather soggy, muddy lawn. Furthermore, there are steps between the dining area, lawn, and up to the area at the edge of the field which the property overlooks, so if you have a little climber like us, then you'll need to be aware of this. The kitchen is incredibly well-equipped for a holiday let, and we were given a lovely welcome package of bread, delicious cake, eggs, butter and jam. There's salt and pepper but if you plan on doing any cooking, you'd need to bring oil and other condiments (I say this because a lot of holiday lets have a cupboard of things like this, which can't be relied upon but is very helpful and saves having to buy/bring this kind of stuff). The beds are VERY comfy (we slept in the red room and put our son's travel cot in the one next door) and the views are glorious. The bathroom is roomy, with a fabulous bath, also with the best view over the gorgeous wild garden and neighbouring field. Nice to have a separate shower too. Hairdryer's included, always good to know. And full length mirror, plenty of storage space. Parking is on site - just be careful if you have a particularly large vehicle as the driveway up to the stables is curved and VERY tight, so you'll benefit from bleepy sensors and/or someone to guide you in. Location is great, though there really isn't an awful lot within walking distance, if this is important to you. It is quiet. So wonderfully quiet (we live in central London - this was a real treat!) The pub is a good 20 minute walk away on undulating roads without pavements (the pub is very nice though - great garden, and the roads are obviously pretty quiet), and there's a new and very lovely wooden play area about 10 minutes away which our son loved. Rye, Camber and Hastings are all easy day trips, as is the Chapel Down winery, which makes an excellent bubbly. Would be great for cyclists as the area is fab to ride in and you're right in the heart of it from the doorstep (next time we'll bring our bikes and maybe a grandparent or too for childcare ;-). Phone signal is totally non-existent (well it was for us on Three and O2) but WiFi is pretty good and they're just installing fibre optic so will be better. Overall, Genevieve and Robert are excellent hosts, I would love to come again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Mrs T,

Iden Green Farm Stables is in an idyllic location with a lovely outdoor area from which we could see a variety of birds feeding including a Woodpecker. The owner was extremely friendly and approachable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Mrs K,

Had a really enjoyable stay at Iden Green Stables. The host was really friendly and helpful if needed. The property had everything we needed and was so comfortable and spacious! The welcome gift was lovely (fresh eggs, bread, etc). Beautiful outside area which we enjoyed every evening. Lovely area of Kent.

Miss H,

Beautiful property. Made to feel very welcome by the owners and the inclusion of bath robes, slippers and provisions were gratefully received. Bath is amazing, beds are very comfortable. Pubs serving good food within walking distance. Will definitely revisit in the warmer months as we didn't get the opportunity to make the most of the outside space.

Mrs Karen H,
