These two delightful, detached cottages have been thoughtfully restored and lie within the owner’s grounds, by the farmhouse. Udiam Farm Cottage (ref. PQQZ) has a light and airy living area, limestone floor and bi-fold doors which open on to the terrace, ideal for alfresco dining. Stable Cottage (ref. UKC565) has been stylishly restored to a very high standard with exposed beams, bespoke kitchen with Miele appliances, Wesley Barrell sofas designed by the owner, Jim Lawrence lighting with French antique chandeliers and beautiful limestone flooring that flows seamlessly out to the terrace. If the weather is fine, play a spot of tennis, enjoy a drink on the croquet lawn or indulge in a game of petanque, by arrangement with the owner.Udiam Farm was formerly the Guinness Hop Farm, and The Stable was once home to the Guinness horses that pulled the wagons, laden with hops. The farm overlooks the River Rother and part of the Kent and East Sussex Steam Railway (used around six times a year for special events). Its trains steam through 10½ miles of countryside from Tenterden to the moated Bodiam Castle. Take a stroll across the grounds to this fairytale 14th century castle where you can also ride the Kent and East Sussex steam railway. Indulge in a meal at the local Michelin starred restaurant and sample the excellent local wines from award winning vineyards. Battle is 8 miles, Royal Tunbridge Wells is a half hour drive, as are the coastal towns of Eastbourne, Hastings, Bexhill-on-Sea and Rye. There are good train services to London from Robertsbridge for additional sightseeing. Fishing and golf are available locally. Beach 15 miles. Shop 2½ miles, pub 5 miles and restaurant 1¼ miles.
