This stylish apartment is in the heart of the pretty town of Cranbrook with easy access to nearby Sissinghurst Castle and the surrounding Kent countryside.

Step back in time when you stay in this 19th century property in the heart of picturesque Cranbrook. Formerly a coffee house, this is now a romantic bolthole for two, plus the dog, boasting a stylish blend of period charm and modern comforts. A great starting point for many memorable walks through the Kent countryside, Cranbrook also boasts a host of dog-friendly cafes and pubs - perfect for refuelling after long days out and about.

Inside, an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner boasts a stylish and contemporary loft-style layout interspersed with delightful original features. Prepare romantic meals for two in the chic modern kitchen area, while your partner enjoys a glass of fizz at the breakfast bar. Dine on a charming schoolhouse chair or pew in the window before retreating to the cosy lounge area for the evening. While you catch up on your favourite TV programme on the Smart TV, your canine companion can keep cosy beside the roaring wood burner which sits within an original brick hearth. When it’s time for bed, retreat to the romantic double bedroom with its antique wrought-iron bedstead and spectacular views towards the windmill. Although this property has no outside space, you will find a host of shops, cafes and green spaces just a few yards from the front door.

This picturesque pocket of the Garden of England boasts a vast array of dog walking locations. Set out on foot from the property to follow the local footpaths and peaceful lanes or jump in the car to explore the area further. Just 8.5 miles away, Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest is popular among dogs, walkers, mountain bikers and runners alike and also has a Go Ape tree top adventure course. Meanwhile, Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens, only 3 miles away, offers more than 450 acres of dog-friendly grounds to explore.

Central location meaning everywhere in Cranbrook was walkable. However, at the side of a busy road and therefore traffic noise. Didn't bother us too much, but may others. If the local council replaced the worn out rubber speed bumps outside the property with new, concrete speed pillows, it would hopefully prevent traffic passing the front window atRead more speeds well in excess of 30 mph!! Big question, would we return? Yes. Happily. Hide

We stayed for a couple of nights and it is a perfect spot for exploring Cranbook and the area around it. The appartment has everything you need and the owner is very helpful. We took our dog and there was plenty of space for all of us. It feels very spacious for an appartment. Although there is no outside space you can cut through the car park oppoRead moresite and go straight into the local nature reserve for easy dog walks. Hide

We stayed in the apartment for a week and we had a great time! The apartment is spacious and very comfortable with its two sofas and modern kitchen. We really appreciated the combination of old and new - the living room oozes atmosphere and everything you could possibly need is there, plus a welcoming card and some chocolate. It's all very completeRead more and a great location to venture into the lovely natural surroundings from. Hide

We really enjoyed our three-night stay in this apartment, which was well placed for the village and the many tourist attractions nearby. The kitchen is very well-equipped, the bathroom modern with a lovely powerful shower and the bed and bedding providing a good night's sleep. In the cool January evenings we lit the log fire and relaxed on the big Read moresofas. Hide

Well equipped property, lovely welcome pack and an excellent host. Cranbrook is a lovely village, we had dinner in the local hotel several times and it was always good. Larkins Ale House is a must visit if you like Ale, excellent fresh beer.
