About lilly Wilton

lilly Wilton purchased this apartment in 1995

Why lilly Wilton chose Ashford

The studio is near our 15th century farmhouse which we have sympathically restored over the years.

What makes this apartment unique

Peacefulness, convenience and character.

Brilliantly located, rural but not isolated and handy for walking, visiting the coast and Leeds Castle. Had a great time. Cottage had everything you would need but very tall people need to consider the bathroom's apex ceiling!

lovely studio in a charming area

  • 4 of 5

We (2 adults and 2 kids) have spent 4 nights in Lilly's studio. We were very well welcomed with some local gifts (eggs of the farm, home made jams, farm apple juice). we really enjoyed our time in this good size studio. There is a fantastic view on the country side and a good range of DVD (with a selection for the kids). the beds were comfortable.

we felt that it was not particularly easy to eat there as there is no table except for a nice (but unpractical) coffee table so we were eating on the kitchen island which was not of the best comfort. As for the bathroom, it is cleverly designed for the space available but beware that tall people ( like me 1m85 ) would probably bang their head few times on the slopped walls.

We paid 55 £ a night and for that price we felt very happy to stay in this very convenient accommodation which well placed to access to most of the Kent's best attractions. We recommend it
