At the heart of rustic life, this beautiful converted oast house retains many of its original features, including two large, square kilns, a timber gantry and the apple orchards that surround the property.
One of the many original features retained in this house, the original hop press makes quite a conversation piece. White walls and neutral floors allow it to take centre stage in the hallway.
Stairs lead down from a mezzanine seating area into the country-style kitchen-diner. A warm oak wooden dining table adds rustic charm and an enamel jug filled with flowers from the garden makes an attractive centrepiece. A bespoke dresser lines the back wall keeping pretty tableware and accessories on display.

At the back of this country coast house, an alfresco dining area is set up next to the french doors which is shaded from the summer sun, while stairs lead up to a sunny terrace from which family and friends can enjoy the wonderful views with drinks in the evening.
