An ideal touring base for family or friends wishing to discover this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Kent and Sussex.

An ideal touring base for family or friends wishing to discover this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Kent and Sussex.

This stunning Grade ll listed oast is unique to the Kent and Sussex countryside, in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This delightful holiday property offers a plethora of beams and an abundance of character, with glorious views across the rolling countryside, particularly from the first floor living space. Originally used to dry hops grown locally, which were then sent to the brewer’s to be used for flavouring beers. Sadly, the twin roundels and the cowl at the top of the kiln has long since disappeared, but the main part of the barn, which was used for the actual storing of hops prior to drying, still has an oak winch in the living area as a reminder of its working past. Situated adjacent to the owner’s 16th-century house built by a Wealden ironmaster, on a delightful, rural, single track lane, guests can access the orchard, tennis court and owner’s paddocks which slope down to the stream at the bottom of the valley. Wadhurst village is close by, and Royal Tunbridge Wells is 7 miles. Bewl Water offers cycle hire, fishing and boating activities. Visit Bateman’s, Rudyard Kipling’s family home (NT), Bodiam Castle (NT), and the beautiful gardens at Scotney Castle and Pashley Manor, or simply enjoy the many walks through the beautiful Sussex countryside directly from the property. Take the opportunity to explore the award-winning English vineyards in the area and sample some superb wines. Wadhurst railway station, 3 miles, provides good connections to London and further sightseeing opportunities. Beach 20 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

Beamed kitchen/dining room with wooden floor. Double bedroom with 6ft bed (zip and link, can be twin). Separate toilet. First floor: Beamed living room with wooden floor, low beams and low doorway.

    We stayed here with a group of friends over the last May bank holiday weekend. We had a great time. The cottage - barn conversion - looks lovely and is certainly one of the best kept properties we've stayed in. Even though the cottage is historic and very old indeed, the equipment inside is modern and fresh. The area is beautiful and lush. Perfect for walks or enjoying the countryside in general. The owners are incredibly welcoming and very forthcoming in making our stay comfortable and memorable.

    Scrag Oak Oast provided the perfect base for a quiet weekend break for my two friends and me. It was snug and cosy, excellently equipped and so beautifully rustic and historic. The owner was welcoming but unobtrusive. The nearby town is a short drive away through narrow, twisty country lanes, adding to the feeling of being "away from it all". I'd recommend arriving at Scrag Oak in daylight if possible, as the drive on a wet, dark evening was a bit scary. We were only there for the weekend but feel that the property would be ideally located for a longer stay, and to take advantage of its proximity to lots of interesting places. Even a day trip to France via Dover or the channel tunnel would not be out of the question. Before we departed Scrag Oak we were already planning to return and bring more family and friends with us, including a pet dog, with whom to enjoy some bracing country walks.
