  • Walks right on the doorstep to explore the surrounding countryside
Property code: 51574

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.

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.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely quirky holiday home. Lovely views from verandha/decking. Sooo quite. Well apart from noisy toad in pond. Fridge is huge its the freezer compartment which is small which contradicts website description. Hot tub which is under cover is lovely. Great view over countryside from it. Would highly recommend this holiday.

A lovely property - peaceful and remote. Couldnt identify the creature in the pond and the warnings about the lack of fridge size are groundless. We would stay again without hesitation.

Wonderful view of the castle from the decking, hot tub area. Beautiful surroundings. Johns home made cider is the best we have ever tasted! So much so we bought more from him.Read more Highly recommend Lady Stella - you will not be disappointed, lovely short walk into Bodium to the castle,railway and village. We will be back Hide

A fantastic getaway, with great views and a lovely location. Ok for any weather and for peace and tranquility. The hot tub included with the property looks out to the nearby Bodiam Castle and links with the outdoor covered area, lovely to be able to sit out whatever the weather. The Hub, a local cafe, is located within a short walk and offers lovelRead morey breakfast and lunches, as well as cakes and sells local produce including wines, beers and ciders. A great break and would definitely recommend it Hide

Excellent location. Undercover outside deck really useful, with a view of the castle whilst sitting in the hot tub! Plenty of space to exercise the dog. Fridge not as small as the website makes it sound. Kitchen equipment basic. Dogs are very welcome.
