Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, sleeps 4. Rural Location 9 miles from coast. Pet friendly.

Stone Green Oast is a traditional square kiln oast converted to comfortable holiday accommodation. This is an "upside-down" house. Steps lead up to the main entrance upstairs where there is an open-plan sitting and dining room and a separate well equipped kitchen. An open engineered spiral staircase leads downstairs to the bathroom and bedrooms (1 double and one twin). The master bedroom has french doors which lead up a short flight of steps to the pretty enclosed garden. Outside there is good quality garden furniture, a barbeque and secure storage for bikes. 2 adult bikes are available for use by guests. The property is situated on the Saxon Shoreway, in a quiet hamlet, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 3/4 mile from the nearest public house. The nearest shop is 2 miles away in Appledore and the Cinque Port market town of Tenterden is 7 miles. The ancient town of Rye, which has an open-air market on Thursdays, is 5 miles away. The property is ideally situated to explore the wide variety of activities that Kent and Sussex coast offer.

About Amanda Button

We moved to Stone in Oxney a few years ago with our five children and four dogs. All our children have grown up and moved away now, so we decided to make the oast available as a holiday cottage. We enjoy staying in holiday cottages ourselves, and know how difficult it can be to find the right one, especially if you have dogs. We aim to offer you a hospitable welcome and comfortable stay, with everything you need to make it your own.

We love it here, and hope that you will too.

Amanda Button purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Amanda Button chose Kent

We moved here because of its location in the beautiful countryside of Kent and East Sussex, and its closeness to the sea. There are lots of enjoyable walks for the dogs, as well as good cycle routes, usually with a decent pub nearby! There is always something going on, but plenty of peace and quiet as well. Camber Sands is only a few miles away, as are the loveliest small towns in Kent and East Sussex, such as Rye and Tenterden.

What makes this cottage unique

This a traditional Kent oast, with a square kiln and a moving cowl pointing out the wind direction. We hope that you will enjoy the high standard of furnishings at Stone Green Oast, the spacious enclosed garden and, above all, the unique character of the property. With just two bedrooms, it is cosy and comfortable. The upstairs reception rooms are beautifully converted with oak flooring and balustrading, and a fantastic spiral staircase which is not out of place with the traditional oak beams that can be found throughout. Dogs are welcome by prior arrangement, and two adult cycles are available for exploring the surrounding countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Perfect! Wonderful, peaceful stay. Thank you for thinking of everything - the goodies were great from the farm shop and can't believe that it was like home from home.  Garden was great for the dogs.  We loved Rye and Camber Sands.  Ferry Inn was lovely too.  Hope to come back again! Best self catering accommodation we have stayed in in UK.' 

'The cottage is in a wonderful place to wake up in and return to after a day out. It feels very warm and homely. It has just about everything you could need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We have really appreciated all the thought and effort that has gone into the creation of this wonderful holiday home! We were also pleasantly surprised by the lovely gift of local produce, we really enjoyed the cake and freshly baked bread after our journey! Thank you so much for your kindness and for our lovely stay at your beautiful cottage!'

'We've had a lovely stay in this delightful cottage. Thank you for the warm welcome, we would certainly stay again.'

Fantastic holiday experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful holiday home in a perfect location. Everything you could need has been thought of by Amanda to make your stay that much more relaxing and comfortable. The welcome goodies in the kitchen are a lovely touch. It is also child as well as dog friendly, and my 10 year old daughter didn't want to leave! We miss it already, thanks again Amanda for the perfect holiday getaway. Shelby, Laila and Bruce the dog.

Away from it all - tranquil and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home from home, Amanda was on hand for any needs not already catered for. The 'welcome basket ' food essentials were very much appreciated. Location is off the beaten track and very peaceful. Beds were comfortable and facilities were more than adequate for our short stay. Many thanks for an enjoyable stay.

Beautifull cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the lovely cottage of Amanda. We got a warm welcome: on the table were home made bread and cake, and in the gridge we found cider, cheese, butter and home made jam. There was a lot to see and do in the surroundings and we were very lucky with the weather. There was a nice village green and a lot of public footpaths, so walking the dog was no problem. The only negative point is the wifi which is bad in nearly all of Kent, but we wille definitly come again.

Lovely cottage break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Stone Green Oast for four nights and have had a fantastic time, the Oast House was spotless and had everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Amanda had provided a very generous welcome pack, with cake, bread, milk etc which was very useful. The area is lovely, we especially liked Tenterden and Rye for days out. The Ferry Inn is worth a visit for an evening meal, we also loved the William The Conqueror pub at Rye Harbour, a great menu and nice to sit outside on a hot day.

Excellent property in a lovely setting. The Oast House is located in an area where there is plenty to see and do both in Kent and neighbouring Sussex. Thank you Amanda for your excellent hospitality.
