A glorious Georgian home, plentiful of character and charm, Craythornes offers the ideal place for families, friends and couples to come together for a memorable stay on the Kent coast.

This beautiful, Grade II listed home is brimming with character, from original wooden floorboards and beams, to large brick and inglenook fireplaces, mixed with curious, hand-picked artwork and fabulous antiques. With plenty of space to all be together yet with nooks and crannies to explore alone should it be privacy you seek. At the heart of the house, steeped in history, an open plan kitchen, with breakfast table and sofa seating, provides a beautiful social space against the backdrop of the oversized inglenook with roaring wood burner, with a door leading out to the garden. Memorable meals together can be had around the large dining table, seating up to 18. Whilst a few unwind in the sitting room in front of the impressive open brick fire, others may enjoy a competitive game of pool or retreat to the cinema room to watch a classic movie on the large projector screen. But for those sunny days, the beautifully unique thatched orangery with views over the garden offers the most peaceful of settings to sit with a good book or to listen to a record playing on the vintage vinyl player. Come evening, retreat to one of the five spacious bedrooms, with additional single beds in three of the bedrooms ideal for families.

Set in a large, lawn garden, with heated swimming pool at the heart, Craythornes has something to entertain all. With table tennis table for the more active of the group, and garden games for competitive afternoons in the sun, with the fenced, heated swimming pool sure to be the favourite place to be, with sunbeds to fully unwind and pool towels provided. With large pond, inhabited with impressive Koi Carp, children whilst needing to be supervised will have fun feeding the fish, and have plenty of space around the garden to run free. Meals alfresco are easily enjoyed at the large outside dining table, should they be cooked upon the gas BBQ, or a chef organised to cook a hassle free and sumptuous feast.

Ideally situated just minutes walk from New Romney's quaint high street, where you will find a choice of cafes, restaurants, pubs and a small selection of shops to sample. If you can bear to leave the grounds and character of Craythornes to explore, there is plenty to do and see nearby, with the sands of St Mary’s Bay and pebbles of Littlestone Beach a 5 minute drive away.

Within a short walk of New Romney’s quaint high street, here you’ll find a small choice of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Situated a 5 minute drive from the stones of Littlestone Beach or the golden sands at St Mary’s Bay, should a day at the beach be calling.

Amazing Property and Host 5/5

Wow what an amazing property and host. We hired Craythornes out for my friends to gather for my 50th. What a gem this find was. The house is massive and accommodating for all ages. Its quirky character and decor made it even more amazing. The house layout meant that rain or shine it could accommodate us all without feeling cramped whatsoever. There was plenty of rooms for everyone to utilise from the open plan kitchen with sofa and chairs, to the lounge, the conservatory, games room, garden. The pool was so lovely. Perfect temperature, clean and safe if you have you gets ones as it’s fenced off. The deep end has slanted walls so for the youngest ones it’s easy for them to get to the edge and get out. There are plenty of Sun loungers and seats around the pool. The new games room was fab although we only used it briefly Plenty of garden area, seating and garden games. The kitchen was fully stocked with plates/pots/pans /- everything you need. The bedrooms were clean, big, and the beds were so comfy. Plenty of bath and pool towels available. Plenty of toilets and bathrooms in the house Sarah the host was amazing - we felt at home and everything was perfect for us. I didn’t want to leave and am definitely planning a return visit There was nothing to not like about this property and its facilities. Everything is thought of and available I would 100% recommend Craythornes and I cannot wait to return

A fabulous family stay 4.8/5

My extended family and I had the most wonderful stay at Craythornes. The pool area and garden were fantastic, and there was an abundance of space indoors that meant we all had chance to be together but also space out and chill out. The teenagers particularly loved the film room! We would definitely stay again.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! Lovely to have a 40th celebration with two sets of family together! Fantastic place for the children. Would love to come back in the summer when the pool is open.

Perfect for a group New Year's Eve celebration 4.5/5

Craythornes is a beautiful house with masses of character, perfect for a group New Year's Eve celebration. We particularly loved the spacious kitchen, the extremely comfortable beds and the easy access to Dungeness. The owner was incredibly welcoming, helpful and relaxed which we really appreciated, and we had great communication & flexibility from Bloom Stays in the run-up.

Craythornes 4.2/5

Sarah, the owner was very helpful and responsive. The Bloom team were helpful and polite, courtesy emails directly before payments are taken would be useful as the payment emails aren’t from bloom.

Making a life time memory of an Holiday at Craythornes 5/5

We were amazed with the warm welcome extended by the host of this property. We stayed in this property for couple of nights, it was an stay with our friends and family which will be remembered life time. The property was clean and bedding linens were fresh. Had plenty of rooms to explore along with few hidden gems with in the property. We had a request with hosts to extends our checkout time by couple of hours which was pleasantly accepted. Given the chance we will be staying again in this property. We simply loved the location, cleanliness and everything about the property.
