  • Former fairground carriage in a stunning rural location, with far reaching views
  • Covered veranda for al fresco dining
  • Walks right on the doorstep to explore the surrounding countryside
Property code: 51574

For a holiday to remember, pack your bags, grab your canine companions and escape to this old fairground carriage. Oozing quirk and rustic warmth, step out onto the covered decking and enjoy a tipple. Countryside views are abundant, and you can while away your time gazing across the neighbouring orchard before setting out for an adventure.

Ascend into the property via a ramp and find yourself in the welcoming hallway with cloakroom and convenient WC. The open-plan living space is brimming with retro charm and is snug yet inviting. Sink into the sofa and fire up the wood burner to keep two and four-legged guests as warm as can be. Rustle up a treat in the kitchen and dine at the table or enjoy an al fresco nibble on the decking. Head to bed and snuggle up for the night in the cosy double room, then wake feeling refreshed and enjoy a shower before heading out for the day. The lawn is a great place for pooches to stretch their legs in the morning, although please take care when near the unfenced pond.

An adventurers delight, there are ample local footpaths easily accessible from the property where dogs can chase sticks, wag their tails and sniff out exciting scents. Enjoy many an unspoilt view whilst out on your wanders. Less than a mile from home, the National Trust’s Bodiam Castle welcomes dogs on leads and sits majestically surrounded by a moat. Hop on the Kent and East Sussex Railway for exciting days out to nearby spots such as Tenterden, 11 miles away.

location was perfect. Local shops are at least 2/3 miles away if you need any bits. Fridge was perfect size and freezer is small but totally adequate for the stay. The farm is beautiful with lots of lovely walks around and other lovely places all within 30 minute drive. Very peaceful place to be

Loved the quirky caravan, in particular the veranda. The site is fab, with The Hub offering delicious food & drink. Issues with hot water while we were there & kitchen had odd assortment of equipment with nothing written on cooker; presumably rubbed off with age. Overall we had a fab time but some minor issues.

If you want a quiet, relaxing holiday Quarry Farm is perfect. The Hub Cafe on site serves great food. The Lady Stella is clean and very comfortable. I went with two dogs but left early because I had not realised there was a six foot drop from the verandah. The fence around it has no chicken wire / netting on it, so one of my dogs tried to jump fromRead more under it. We left early. Would love to go back, but only if the verandahs on Quarry Farm are made safe for small dogs. I hope this can be adressed. Hide

We loved our stay in Lady Stella. Very quaint, full of character and set in a lovely location. So peaceful and relaxing. The dogs loved their stay too especially the little treats on arrival. The dressing gowns were a lovely gesture for when we used the hot tub

Very comfortable however the kettle on a gas hob was extremely hot to handle when boiled as was the whistle on the spout. We felt the betting could do with upgrading. The veranda was excellent and very safe for quests with dogs

We had a relaxing few days enjoying some peace & quiet, taking some casual walks & finishing each evening in the hot tub. The accommodation is very well equipped & the grounds are very well kept. The owner is super helpful but possibly a little too relaxed when it comes to dog poop, he said not to bother scooping it up as he would mow it. I would nRead moreot leave my dogs poop & felt quite anxious that people would think that the owners dogs mess was my dog as they seemed to always poop on our grass! Hide
