Studio With Uninterrupted Views Of Romney Marsh. Visit Rye Hythe and Canterbury

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Dec-2016
Studio Loft - I bedroom, Totally Rural, The Sea 3 miles, 10 mins walk to Military Canal

The Shed stands in the garden of the listed Old Oak, once the smuggling pub of Bonnington. The Shed has its own garden space, table and chairs and BBQ. Built in 2012 to the highest specifications and in traditional style it offers an ideal base for exploration. There is one bedroom with a king size bed, and a kitchen living room. Fully equipped with a dishwasher' cooker and fridge, TV and WiFi and prettily and individually designed for total comfort. Built for our far flung family to stay in when in England - we would love to share it with you when they are not with us! We love this special corner of England, and built the Shed to reflect its rural surroundings, and offer a cosy welcoming retreat. It has proved to be a great base for artists, writers and those with a creative spirit.

Great place to stay in beautiful and uncrowded Romney Marsh area. Great for birding nearby at Dungeness RSPB. Tour of local churches is highly recommended.

Ideally situated and comfortable in every way

  • 5 of 5

Many attractions - the historic churches of the Romney Marsh, Hythe, Dover - don't just go to the castle, explore the town as well as the Western Heights. Further afield Bexhill with the restored De La Warr Pavilion. Many walks around Lydd..

A fantastic week in sunny Kent.

  • 5 of 5

We are lucky enough to often go to holiday lets in the UK and the shed is really one of the very best. The property itself is lovely with everything that you need and things you may have forgotten. Tina and Jeremy are the perfect hosts and so are their lovely dogs!

Perfect property for a quiet and relaxing break.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely find for a last minute short break. Wish we could have stayed longer but fully booked, which says it all! Beautifully decorated and lovely personal touches from the croissants and fresh milk in the fridge on arrival, to the little vases of fresh flowers throughout. Very comfortable and a real home from home. Would definitely recommend.

A really great experience. The best 'Shed' I've stayed in! Beautiful views outside and inside. The Metcalfes are such a friendly family and made us so welcome. The bed was really comfortable and the nights were so peacefull.

Facilities

From the Owner

There are views over the pretty country garden across the sweeping fields of Romney Marsh. Our pub dates back to the 1740s with lots of local history we can share with you. The battle of Britain was fought in the skies above and the wonderful memorial museum is now open near Folkestone. There are delightful country and village pubs we can tell you all about! The Marsh has always been the artist's dream with its huge skies and luminous light.
