Horne's Place Oast & Barn
Situated in stunning countryside just outside the village of Appledore, Horne’s Place Oast and Barn is a fantastic location for a family holiday or group getaway with a private indoor pool. The oast house itself sleeps up to 16 people and has seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. The barn, just a few steps away across the courtyard, sleeps up to nine in three bedrooms – all with en suites. The barn's stylish ground floor bedroom with en-suite wetroom is wheelchair accessible.
There’s a large kitchen in the oast house with space to seat all 25 guests around the dining table. There’s also plenty of outdoor space including a large pond, spacious deck, children’s play area, barbecue and outdoor pizza oven – not to mention the indoor heated swimming pool and hot tub (housed in a separate building), The Boat House Games Room and outdoor hot tub. The facilities have been designed with families in mind so the pool house has locked doors and is a short walk away from the house and garden, the hot tubs have lockable covers and the pond area is fully fenced with padlocked gates.
Originally used for drying hops picked in the surrounding Kent countryside, this converted oast house was refurbished to a high standard in 2017. It has plenty of modern conveniences alongside older features like its inglenook fireplace and beamed ceilings. It also has a fully accessible en suite bedroom in The Barn.
Just over an hour’s drive from London and less than 30 miles from the Channel Tunnel, Horne’s Place Oast is steps away from the English Heritage-protected Horne’s Place Chapel and the Gusbourne vineyard. Romney Marsh, the beaches of the Kent coast and the medieval town of Rye are within a short drive along with family-friendly attractions including the Rare Breeds Centre and the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway.
