This lovingly refurbished carriage presents quirky accommodation in a stunning countryside setting, perfect for celebrating a special occasion with a loved one or a romantic getaway for two.

Located in the heart of the East Sussex countryside with beautiful rural views, this property is also within easy reach of the local pub, cafe and farm shop. The carriage enjoys a beautiful and timeless view across to historic Bodiam Castle, which is managed by the National Trust and is well worth a visit. Hop on the nearby Kent and East Sussex railway and take a visit to the market town of Tenterden with its tree lined high street, and wide range of independent shops, restaurants and cafes. For keen walkers, there are ample local footpaths surrounding the property which are perfect to explore the surrounding areas and enjoy unspoilt views.

The carriage is accessed by a wooden ramp into a small entrance hall with a cloakroom with WC. Enter into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a warm and cosy area in which to unwind after a long stroll in the countryside, with a wood burner, comfy sofa, armchair and TV/DVD, and a small dining table with seating for two. The compact but well-appointed kitchen contains a gas oven and hob, microwave and a fridge/freezer. The double bedroom is located at the other end of the cabin through a sliding door and features a double bed with a small basin, and en-suite shower.

Outside, there is a covered veranda with seating for six to eight people, with two sofas, a large wooden table, and two built in benches. It is a great space for entertaining. The hot tub which seats six people provides the perfect spot to relax and watch the sun go down whilst enjoying a glass of bubbly. There is also a lawn area for enjoying a spot of croquet and to the rear of the property is an unfenced pond. There is ample off-road parking next to the property.

We had a lovely relaxing time. The only issue is that my head and feet were up against the walls as the bedreeom is only 6' wide, but apart from that it was a lovely base, with glorious views. The Hot Tub was very welcome at night to help relax before bed

Beautiful location, a lovely little bolt hole. Sitting in hot tub, watching the view was the best. Clean and comfortable but bed was a little short for 6ft+ husband.

We were looking for a cheeky little weekend get away break and the Lady Stella provided us with just that. We stayed late September and the log burner and hot tub were extremely welcomed to ensure our stay was warm and cosy. The views over the orchard were beautiful, John the owner was great and breakfast at the hub (caf on site) was spot on. If yoRead moreur looking for somewhere a bit different and to get away from the day to day hustle and bustle then I would highly recommend. Hide

Excellent location for touring around Kent, the Hot Tub was lovely, the bed small and had to climb over each other. So if you like cosy...very cosy its for you.

We stayed with our Doberman Olive. She loved the surrounding area and decking to spend time when we were not out and about. Decking was very safe with gates to keep her in. Lovely view and perfect choice of breakfasts at the hub. Perfect cappuccino. John very friendly and helpful, as were the staff at the hub.

The Lady Stella is the perfect 'get away from it all' holiday location.
