Newhouse Farm Oast is a comfortable and spacious holiday property accommodating from 2 to 6 guests. It was built in the 19th century as a hop-drying oasthouse, and more recently converted into a modern and luxurious home.
The property has two roundels, each of which is topped with a conical roof and a traditional white cowl. On the ground floor there are two king-size bedrooms (each set in one of the circular roundels), a twin-bedded room, large entrance lounge, a compact but well-equipped shower room with WC and wash hand basin, plus a utility room fitted with washing machine and tumble dryer.
Upstairs there is a magnificent 40-foot open-plan living/dining space with a stunning vaulted ceiling. This room has wonderful views across the farm and beyond. There is also a bespoke circular kitchen and a feature bathroom with a roll-top bath tub.
Outside, there is off-road parking, and spacious gardens, including private areas for al fresco dining and garden lounge seating.
The oasthouse is fully furnished and equipped with all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. The bedrooms have award-winning Hypnos beds with luxurious Egyptian cotton linens, and the kitchen is equipped with an oven, grill and hob, an integral fridge and dishwasher, a Nespresso coffee machine, Dualit toaster and KitchenAid kettle.
There’s full fibre Wi-Fi throughout, so you can stay connected while you’re away.
