Welcome to Bedgebury Oast for a beautiful stay in a slice of Kentish history - an iconic oast house, located on the Bedgebury Estate with stunning views over the Kent countryside. Come together with family or friends to create memories in the most peaceful of settings, with a simply beautiful interior and oodles of space inside and out.

Originally built for drying the hops that were harvested across the picturesque Weald of Kent to make traditional British beers, oast houses now make the most special holiday homes for anyone looking for some time off in a historic setting and Bedgebury Oast is one of the best examples. A beautifully modernised home, designed with a distinctly calming feel, retaining much of its charm and character of its former hop harvesting past. Inside, its 5 bedrooms are beautifully decorated and make the most of its tall pointy roof space to give lofty ceilings that reveal original beams and more quirky corners. The open plan kitchen with its range cooker, and fabulous island, will bring everyone round to gather in style especially with the oak framed glass extension which opens up on summer days (and nights) so you can step out directly into the garden. The cosy lounge with its warming log burner feels very luxurious whilst the TV den ensures there's always an alternative place for toddler TV or teenage gaming.

Spring and Summer days will undoubtedly be well spent in the extensive garden. Spend your days relaxing, whilst taking in the outstanding views, whether that’s with a G&T in hand on the patio or lunch al-fresco together with a feast put together by a local chef, followed by a mid-afternoon competitive garden game on the lawn or in the games room. Beyond the summer house and garden wall there's an orchard where Kentish apple trees bear fruit and a few steps further is access to the ancient Bedgebury forest and pinetum. Bedgebury Oast offers easy access to the paths, cycling, running and walking tracks that open up the vast space whatever the weather. It's just a couple of miles or so from Goudhurst village with its famous duck pond, traditional pubs and views over the high Weald. Apparently you can see London 40 miles away from the top of the church tower (which you can climb in summer), but why would you want to when you've got this glorious landscape opening up below and beyond you.

Beautiful Cottage 5/5

We had a lovely stay at Bedgebury Oast, the house was wonderful and in a very secluded and pretty location. The house had everything you could need and we really appreciated the little basket of goodies left for our arrival. A wonderful well kept house that has been maintained exceptionally well. Bloom Stays were excellent in making sure we were taken care of and accommodating our requests. Would not hesitate to book again

The attention to detail is second to none. You have thought of everything and the welcome hamper was a thoughtful addition. It was a relaxing weekend spent with family enjoying walks, games and company in beautiful surroundings.

Beautiful house for a family birthday. 5/5

We stayed with our family for our mother-in-laws 75th birthday. The house was presented immaculately on arrival with a beautiful and unexpected welcome goodie box. The attention to detail was second to none and the house was very comfortable. The property was well stocked with everything you could think of from linen to utensils to fire wood. It catered for all ages and the children had lots of fun in the games room. We can highly recommend this property to anyone for anytime of year (we went in November).

We found true paradise! So cosy and well decorated, it has the best English vibes and we simply fell in love with it. As a family, with a toddler and a baby, we built amazing memories here. Thank you and looking forward to our next stay here.
