Ulcombe, Nr Maidstone, Kent.
In the very heart of Kent on the Greensand Ridge with stunning views over the North Downs, Tilmangate Barn is a haven of rural peace. Surrounded by the owner?s arable farmland, woodland and orchards complete with grazing sheep, this is a superb holiday venue.
The small, quiet and ancient village of Ulcombe, with its lovely church, lies in an enviable location amidst the lush greenery of Kent. In an area such as this, outdoor pursuits are plentiful with opportunities for walking, cycling, riding, tennis, golf and fishing. Made all the more pleasant due to the beautiful setting.
The charming Wealden village of Headcorn with pretty village green, neatly kept medieval cottages and a long High Street, which cunningly conceals a shopping centre to cater for nearly every need and the village of Lenham are both 4 miles away. Lenham Village Square used as a market place for many hundreds of years still remains the focal point of the village and holds a monthly Country Market.
Venturing further afield, the M20 (10 minutes) brings the whole of the county to your doorstep, from the Darenth Valley to the Channel and beyond! London and the West End are within easy reach, only 75 minutes direct from nearby Lenham station.
A very spacious barn conversion, airy and bathed in natural light with entrance hall leading to double bed, bathroom and well-equipped kitchen. The pretty bedroom is bright and spacious with high ceiling, exposed beams and decorated in soft ivory with pine furniture and has lovely views over the farmland. There is also a charming single bedroom. Separate bathroom with bath and shower over, wash hand basin and w.c. From the kitchen, door leads into charming lounge in shades of lemon, ivory and blue creating a serene feel. The sofa provides an additional sleeping facility for a further guest, together with a single ground floor bedroom. From the lounge patio doors open out into the courtyard.
The delightful courtyard garden, a wash with pots of colourful shrubs and flowers, has a raised patio area for entertaining or simply just to relax with the views of the unspoilt countryside providing the perfect backdrop.
