Bushes Oast

Sevenoaks Weald





This is a rare opportunity to holiday in a newly renovated oast house (traditionally used for drying hops), incorporating the unusual combination of a square and round oast. The house has been furnished to a high standard and offers luxurious accommodation, ideal for couples and small families. The rooms are beautifully decorated with a mix of antique and contemporary styles which contribute to creating a truly memorable holiday. The house and garden are set within a private estate and there are wonderful views, from all rooms, across the Weald of Kent, a designated AONB. This Kent holiday home has a wow factor and is a real rose amongst the thorns.

The rural location offers a haven of peace and tranquillity with miles of footpaths - including the famous 'Greensand Way' - on your doorstep, yet it is only 10 minutes from the quaint town of Sevenoaks for shopping, dining and entertainment. It is also ideally located for visiting the many National Trust and heritage properties in Kent such as Hever Castle (home of Anne Boleyn) Penshurst Place, Sissinghurst Castle Gardens and Chartwell (home to Sir Winston Churchill). Both Rochester and Canterbury Cathedrals are also within an hour's drive and London is also only 30 minutes away by train.

Extras and Experiences


Countryside retreat in Kent 5/5

Beautiful location overlooking rolling countryside with walks from your doorstep. This dog friendly cottage definitely feels like a home not a holiday rental. The Photographs do not do the property justice. Bushes Oast is beautifully laid out as well as decorated to a very high standard. The bedrooms would definitely suit two couples or a family and it is laid out as two separate suites. Either feeling like the master bedroom. I'm very fussy and always ask about the age of the mattresses and bed lining, at Bush Oast not only were the beds really really comfortable, but the linen was beautiful as well. The kitchen had everything that you would need, and I loved using the aga. The lounge area was very comfortable with lots of interesting books. The house was spotlessly clean. Lots of lovely pubs nearby. Would definitely go back.

Beautiful and comfortable accommodation 5/5

Probably the best property we have rented, and we have stayed in quite a few! Very close to Sevenoaks, in a quiet rural area, beautiful views from the house. The rooms are extremely tasteful but still very comfortable. We love the kitchen, the Everhot is great for cooking but provides warmth on cooler days. Bedrooms are excellent, we slept very well. It was very well equipped, in the kitchen and generally. We stayed for a week but would have loved longer. The owners are next door, they gave us lots of privacy but I’m sure would be very approachable if needed. Overall, we really loved our stay and highly recommend.

Unforgettable farm house in Kent 4.8/5

Had an unforgettable and amazing experience at this incredible farm house. Stunning views, gorgeous house, and an excellent retreat when you just want to get away from it all. My family and I will never forget this holiday and we will be back for sure.

Amazing 5/5

All I can say is WOW. I stayed here for 2 nights for my wedding and I am blown away by this property and everything about it. Firstly the view is spectacular, we literally screamed with excitement when we looked out the lounge for the first time, it was picturesque. The cottage was so clean and just absolutely beautiful. It made getting ready for the wedding that much more special and I couldn't recommend staying here enough!

Denver Chapman | 02 June 2022

Lovely stay in the Kent Countryside 5/5

We stayed here for 13 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it, located in the middle of a working farm it was always alive. Pheasants and deer in the field behind us.

Bushes Oast 5/5

My family and I had an amazing time staying at Bushes Oast, it provided us with exactly what we were looking for. The rural location, and beautiful Kent scenery gave us a great start to everyday. The service provided during our stay was 5 star, Bloom Stays responded efficiently and professionally to any requests. I would highly recommend Bushes Oast to anyone looking for something unique and special, and Bloom Stays if you want to experience exceptional service.
