The Oast is a typical traditional Kentish oast house that was originally built to dry hops for the making of beer. It has now been restored and converted into a comfortable home and is situated in the centre of the historic village of Newenden opposite the village green where cricket has been played since 1300 close to the church with its 12th century font and within very easy walking distance of the 16th century pub The White Hart Inn which offers local beers and wines as well as excellent home cooked food.

There is plenty of outdoor space at The Oast a sheltered but sunny terrace with patio furniture and coal barbeque a large garden and a one acre paddock which is ideal for children to run around in. The Oast which is a listed building was converted in 1995 to a very high standard and retains many of its original period features including the hop press which is situated at the top of the stairs. The Oast benefits from modern insulation as well as an excellent central heating system.

The Oast is well designed for a superb family holiday. The roundel drawing room with two three seater sofas Smart TV, DVD and Hi-Fi is an excellent peaceful space with far reaching views down The Rother Valley.

Extras and Experiences

Reviews

Wonderful location and host,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
Lovely oast house in a wonderful location. The outdoor space is fantastic and the master bedroom is gorgeous. The village is great and we particularly enjoyed the boating station and ice creams in their cafe. We appreciated the extras available for a baby like the cot and high chair. The house itself is a lovely old oast house. As with any listed building, there are going to be some things which are a little tired or not to our taste but we expected this. Do beware if you’re 6ft tall…my husband hit his head on the beams upstairs pretty much every day, but again that’s to be expected with an old property! Alan the host is wonderful, very welcoming and couldn’t be more helpful. He resolved the couple of small problems we had immediately and gave us some great recommendations of things to do in the area. We really enjoyed our stay. ,date:2022-06-27,arrival:2022-06-19,departure:2022-06-26,duration:7,month:June,author_first_name:Guest,author_last_name:,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply: ,ratings_Cleanliness:3,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:4,ratings_Condition:3,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:5,ratings_Average:4.2 /5

An excellent retreat in the beautiful countryside on the Kent Sussex border,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
Six good friends have just finished a 3 night stay in this beautiful Kentish property. Everything you could possibly wish for is here. Four fabulous comfy bedrooms, three upstairs and one downstairs. A fully equipped kitchen diner to cook, mingle and enjoy each other’s company in! Split living rooms. As many TV’s (one smart) as you could possibly wish for! With DVD player in the main room and a selection of DVD’s. As well as a pretty decent Marantz sound system!! A great living space outside with beautiful views towards the River Rother and Kent & East Sussex heritage railway line. It really is an ‘escape’ worth visiting!! Nearby there’s a village pub - great for meals (booking maybe necessary). We wined, we dined and we walked from our base. Always knowing that we’d have a fabulous home from home experience on our return. I’d highly recommend The Oast as a holiday home!,date:2021-07-12,arrival:2021-07-07,departure:2021-07-10,duration:3,month:July,author_first_name:Peter,author_last_name:White,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply: ,ratings_Cleanliness:5,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:5,ratings_Condition:5,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:5,ratings_Average:5 /5
