Superhosts zijn ervaren, hoog gewaardeerde verhuurders die zijn toegewijd aan het verzorgen van een geweldig verblijf voor hun gasten.
Our stable is situated in the centre of the Kent Downs AONB, ideally located to explore the best of rural Kent on foot. Some of the best of the Downs and Weald AONB's country walks begin at our gate, and medieval villages, towns, country parks, castles and cathedrals are just a short drive away. Canterbury, Whitstable, Maidstone, Faversham, Rochester, Tenterden and the channel tunnel terminal are all no more than a 30 minute drive.

De ruimte
Introduction to the Stable
The Stable is part of the Coach House, built in the 1800’s to serve the local manor house. The L-shaped main building is made up of two seperate wings. The western wing (where the owners reside) was the coach house & staff quarters, and the south wing (the guest accommodation) was the stable & hay loft. Together with the old cart shed and a much later garage block, this cluster of buildings on three sides of a Kentish walled garden forms ‘The Coach House’.

What you can expect
Guests have sole use of ‘The Stable’ - a self contained and very versatile 2 bedroom cottage, which cosily accommodates couples and small families, but is also capable of comfortably sleeping up to seven adults.

There are two configurations - the first is for small groups (of up to 4) featuring one bathroom, and the second is for larger groups (of up to 7), and adds space, furniture and an extra bathroom to the ground floor. The two different configurations are shown in the photos. More information is provided in the ‘other things to note’ section.

Ground Floor
The ground floor is a split level open space with a bespoke oak kitchen on a raised brick stage, an oak-beamed lounge with solid stone floor and underfloor heating, a brick inglenook fireplace, and a dining area/3d bedroom again with a stone floor and underfloor heating. The dining area can double as a 3rd bedroom, with an extra bed discreetly behind an original cast iron and pitch pine horse stall divider. A large Netflix-enabled TV/home cinema with DVD and book libraries are in the lounge.

Situated in an elevated position overlooking the ground floor, and swooping, curving and merging into the spiral stairs and lounge area, the bespoke raised kitchen and breakfast bar commands both the entire ground floor space and the external terrace. Bifolding glass doors framed by a mature vine completely open the kitchen to your own private brick courtyard.

Please note that the Stable is in fact a 2 bedroom cottage. The ‘3rd bedroom’ is not really a bedroom. For larger groups, in addition to the additional ground floor shower room that we provide (for the larger groups) we also place a double bed in the dining area which is separated from the main living area by an original horse stall divider, with privacy possible via a curtain.

First floor rooms are accessed via original cast iron spiral staircase, which leads from the kitchen to a small landing opening to a twin bedroom. From the twin, the master bedroom is accessed via a corridor, which also gives access to a travertine bathroom featuring underfloor heating, whirlpool bath and waterfall shower.

Please note that the twin bedroom must be crossed to access the master bedroom.

If unsure about anything - please contact us to ask before making a booking request or booking, many thanks.

Waar je zult verblijven

Wichling, Kent, Verenigd Koninkrijk

Wichling is a quiet rural parish. Most of the houses are on a C-road running through the parish. Long walks along the many footpaths along the tops of the Kent downs are a good way to enjoy the area at any time of year. For those wishing to visit Kent the location is ideal - high in the centre of the Downs, close to the Weald, and central to all the main and historic towns.

My husband Graham and I are a friendly Anglo-French couple who live ‘next door’ - in the other wing of the house. We often work from home so will generally be around to greet people arriving, answer questions, resolve issues, or just provide advice if you plan one of the many local ‘pub walks’.
