Beautifully set in an expansive lawn garden, with unspoilt views across the lush green valley below and the picturesque countryside beyond, Old Lakenham proudly sits. A luxurious home, plentiful with space inside and out, an ideal choice for groups of families or friends looking to come together, with an inviting hot tub and gloriously large heated swimming pool just one of the features to make your stay all the more special.

Old Lakenham seamlessly blends classic elements, such as exquisite parquet flooring, with modern and lavish finishes. At the heart of the home, a spectacular kitchen awaits, fully equipped whether the cook of the group or a local chef is preparing a feast, with a large island and corner sofa for socialising. Once the meal is prepared, and the table is laid, memorable meals can be had in the beautiful dining room, with double french doors leading out into the garden. With a choice of areas to be together, yet more intimate spaces to allow you to slink off for some alone time, whether that be watching a favourite movie in the sitting room from the large corner sofa, taking in the views over the garden and countryside from the conservatory, or maybe coming together for a competitive game of air hockey or table tennis. No less than seven glorious bedrooms await to retreat to come sundown, sharing in five modern bathrooms.

With the most beautiful grounds for all to explore, and with plenty to keep you entertained. The hot tub provides a relaxing retreat, perfect for any weather, whilst during the Summer, the large heated swimming pool becomes the focal point, offering endless fun and enjoyment. With comfortable sunbeds and outdoor seating, unwinding and dining al fresco is a breeze. And for the children or even pets of the group, the fully enclosed, generous lawn offers all the space they could need. Set overlooking beautiful countryside, on the outskirts of the town of Maidstone, Old Lakenham is centrally located whether travelling by car or train. Picturesque walks are on your doorstep, with a charming, renowned country pub just over a 10 minute walk away.

In the Area


Loose is located in the Maidstone area near Lenham, Ulcombe and Leeds. Leeds is home to Leeds Castle, possibly the most beautiful castle in the world. You can enjoy Go Ape (zip wires) and Segway as well as many activities in the park from falconry, a maze, river boating and more. Broomfield park is on your doorstep to Little Seven Oaks with long winding relaxing walks and trails. There is a lovely restaurant at the Castle, very romantic during the evening. Sissinghurst Castle is also very close by to further enjoy one of the many heritage visits in this part of Kent.

The closest eatery is the award winning gastro pub The Potting Shed, a short drive away offering tasty meals and tipples. Another pub which is very close by the is the Chequers pub, a welcoming traditional country village pub with delish homecooked food.

Further afield within 45 minutes you can head to the City in Canterbury, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks - superb shopping, heritage sites, cafes galore. Or perhaps the seaside in Hythe and Folkestone. Lots in very easy distance from Kingswood.
Getting here from London is best by car via the M20 in under an hour. Or via train to Headcorn.
