We are pleased to offer self-catering accommodation in a newly erected log cabin, built in the grounds of our 17th century home, with views of The North Downs here in Thurnham, Kent.

The Cabin (23ft by 10ft) has been decorated and fitted out with a contemporary look and offers full heating throughout.  The bedroom has a comfortable double bed, with an en suite shower room.  We provide toiletries, hairdryer, and a couple of towelling robes with matching slippers, just so you’ll feel pampered!  And if you need it, there is a futon in the living room that can be converted into an extra bed.

After a day spent enjoying the outdoors, you might want to relax in front of the television or just enjoy the flicker of the flames created by our instant-heat electric fire.  If you want to prepare your own meals, there’s an oven, microwave and hobs.  We’ll even arrange for a food delivery if that’s what you want and store it in the refrigerator ready for your arrival.

Weather permitting, you will be able to sit out on your own private veranda that overlooks the North Downs and dine alfresco.  You’ll find a barbecue in the shed we have provided, which can also house any bikes you might decide to bring.  Fortunately, The Cabin is completely fenced, with its own entrance and land, so if you do bring a four-legged friend, you can all relax.

We can advise you on local walks and cycle routes, even those including our wonderful local pubs!  This area is steeped in history so you might perhaps choose to visit nearby Leeds Castle and find out why Henry VIII stayed there.  The shops are a short drive away.

If you are looking for a rural retreat, set at the end of a bridleway and surrounded by fields, why not use The Cabin as a base?  Whatever your individual requirements – whether it be walking, biking or a romantic break - we will ensure a tailored approach to your stay, in a clean and well-maintained environment.  

Also provided:

Blu-ray player, electric kettle, toaster, small fridge freezer, boot warmer, ordnance survey maps, bed linen and towels included, battery operated torch, fold-away dining table, chairs and coffee table, Scrabble and cards.  Sun loungers.

Travel cot, high chair, dog bed.

On request with additional cost:  welcome hamper, breakfast hamper, food order, cooked breakfasts, home-made evening meals to reheat, packed lunches, cleaning and laundry service. Dog sitting.

Tea and coffee provided for arrival.  No smoking inside Cabin.  Utilities included. 

Sensible footwear is recommended (especially in the winter) as the cabin is reached along a grassy track.

Disabled Facilities

We have made the cabin as accessible as possible but the topography of the land limits access at some times during the year and steps are required.  If you have limited mobility please telephone me and I can talk you through the access ensuring you can be as comfortable as possible.
