School House Oast

England: South of England: Kent: Horsmonden

Unique private house retreat ideal for those wanting total relaxation

An exclusive private oast house retreat located in the heart of the Kent countryside, with extensive views across the River Teise Valley to the beautifully peaceful Weald countryside, just one hour south of London and 40 minutes to the south coast at Hastings. With accommodation designed to instil a deep sense of peace, this oasis of tranquillity offers guests a unique approach to take care of mind, body and spirit. Surrounded by four acres of organic garden and orchard it has a sense of total privacy. Perfect for those seeking a place for total relaxation. The colours, the atmosphere, the energy, the pictures, the furniture, all reflect our passion for creating an inspiring, relaxing, nurturing private home healing environment. We figure there's nowhere else like it - and not because we're biased, but because we've looked. Never ones to follow trends in interiors, the oast is filled with vibrant yet restful colours, lush fabrics, and earthy yet contemporary furniture. School House Oast is available on the usual, albeit rather special holiday home rental basis, or on a fully serviced basis. Please see our own website for further details.

Garden / Grounds:
4 acres of organic garden and orchard

Views, wildlife and local environment:
Beautiful views across the River Teise Valley to the Kentish Weald in a tranquil rural locatrion with great country walks on the doorstep.
