Why Old House Holidays chose Edenbridge

A stunning and quirky medieval timber framed home, originally build in 1468 for Sir Wyllyam Taylour, then Sheriff of London (later Lord Mayor of London). It is said the house had the proportions and ceiling heights (12 foot) of a 'fine London house'. The building also has Jacobean wall paintings re-discovered in the 1960s.

What makes this house unique

We love the house because it stood the tide of time, it is full of history, charm, character and quirky details.

The fact we can share it with visitors s great. We hope you will find the place just as interesting as we do.

Did not disappoint....real character.

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could need provided...whatever you take will stay in the car....it's already there. Great place to have a family gathering, comfortable and clean (except the odd cobweb) and right in the centre of town so close to all amenities. Children love the hidden room. Would recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you Lawrence for staying with us. We did the little room with children in mind. :) Oh, the old enemy 'cobweb'. Once I started looking I could find them, they seem to use the beams as camouflage. We do have a big long brush to get rid of them and that we did. But I am glad, it didn't spoil the fun of your celebrations.

Wonderful building, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We used the house for a team-building event. It had everything that we needed and is absolutely beautiful. It was perfect and I would definitely book it again, and we had a great day

Lovely old building to stay in.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable break. Everyone loved the old features of the house and the cosy atmosphere.

It was an easy distance to drive to Biggin Hill airport for my father's 90th birthday celebratory flight.

magical and very interesting

  • 5 of 5

however we were not provided with the code to get through the gate and if a kind neighbor had not rescued us we would have been out all night including the baby

The bedrooms were wonderful especially the 4 poster bed and the cot for the baby. The big bath was like a swimming pool.

Very interesting the wall paintings and produced a lot of conversation about history.

Charming with all the mod cons!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully and sensitively renovated house. The modern conveniences blend with the old. We had a family reunion and there was plenty of space for everyone. We loved sitting around the huge kitchen table as well as relaxing together in the lounge where we talked late into the night. The village is quaint but also has everything we needed - supermarkets, pubs and restaurants. This was a great stay and I'd highly recommend this property.
