Description

Enjoy the many benefits of a rural retreat in the beautiful Kent countryside, while staying within the comfort of glamping in the converted romantic Old Apple Shed for 2+2. The picturesque site of the shed, in over an acre of stunning meadow, immediately relieves stress and provides a perfect environment to unwind.

In the 1960s and 70s when the land was a working orchard farm, the Old Apple Shed was used to store the apples and cherries that were harvested. Once it was not needed anymore, the shed was converted into this charming romantic hideaway with the design of having a minimal impact on the environment.

The ground floor accommodation is small yet perfectly cosy for 2+2 guests, with a double bed, a comfy sofabed, a wood burning stove to keep the shed toasty during the cold winter evenings, windows with calming views of the untouched countryside, a kitchen area with dining table and a bathroom with a hot shower.
