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, with its wide range of restaurants, pubs and live music, is 5 miles away. The property is ideally situated to explore the wide variety of activities that Kent and Sussex coast offer: the beautiful beaches at Camber and Rye Harbour are great for children and for walking the dogs. Canterbury, with its mediaeval cathedral and excellent shopping, is only an hour away by car. The high speed train from nearby Ashford International takes you to London in only 35 minutes.

We will be here to greet you with a generous welcome pack of local produce upon arrival and are nearby if you need any extra assistance during your stay.

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 Tenterden

We love the oast because, although it is a beautiful and historic building, typical of the area and its rural heritage, it is well adapted for comfortable living. We moved to Stone in Oxney 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.

Simply the best!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot find a negative to write about this lovely holiday cottage. It is spotlessly clean, and all fitments, soft furnishings and linen are of the highest quality.

The welcome pack of food was fantastic, and our dog felt so at home that she was reluctant to leave!

Amanda made us so welcome,, that we too were reluctant to leave!!

Perfection in every possible way.

  • 4 of 5

Amanda was a warm, helpful and generous hostess. Every detail of the Oast house accomodation was directed to the guests’’ comfort. We really can’t find sufficient superlatives. The fact that we were reluctant to leave should say it all. Thank you Amanda, Andrew and wonderful dogs.

A delightful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The Oast House was clean and well equipped. It was tastefully decorated and comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed the generous welcome pack. It is within an easy drive of Rye, Camber Sands, Dungeness, Hastings and the Channel Tunnel but relaxing in the pretty garden is equally enjoyable.
