About the property

Granary in Biddenden, Nr. Tenterden, Kent - On The Outskirts Of The Historic Village Of Biddenden Beside Chart Hills Golf Course

Refurbished to a very high standard and set in a quiet and private location within the grounds of a 16th Century farmhouse, Standen Granary offers a convenient base for exploring Kent and the South East. It has a modern studio style living and kitchen area downstairs (the beamed ceiling is low - 6'2' so unsuitable for very tall guests!). Upstairs the double bedroom is beautifully furnished and features a vaulted, beamed ceiling giving a cosy, romantic atmosphere. A glazed door leads to a private balcony where you can enjoy the sun. Off the bedroom lies the superbly fitted shower room. Ample secure parking.

We never badger our guests for reviews so the reviews listed are from those who have chosen to leave comments off their own back. We do have a guest book in the Granary full of lovely comments and even one or two proposals have been made on the balcony!

Payment is by bank transfer (or cheque if you are not familiar with online banking) once the booking has been agreed.

We look forward to having you to stay!

About Cecilia Buchanan

I am a stay at home Mum, sculptor and TV and Film extra and my husband, Angus is an engineer and Company Director. He has been building a full sized aeroplane in the barn for many years so our regulars have witnessed its progress with great interest. This year it has reached the painting stage so he is beside himself with excitement!

Cecilia Buchanan purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Cecilia Buchanan chose Kent

We love Kent. I was born and grew up here before moving to Glasgow where I met Angus. We moved back south when he got a job in London and found this beautiful house. The Granary was an office when we arrived. In 2007 we stripped it out and converted it into a holiday let and have been with Owners Direct since then.
