Description
The approach to this hidden gem is as delightful as it is surprising. Reached via a long farm driveway approach, Dodhurst Farm Cottage is an interesting and substantial character house, originally two cottages and now providing well presented and extensive family accommodation.

The situation is unbelievable, being set within a private garden in a farm location, with open rural surroundings, yet only about two miles from the heart of Tunbridge Wells.

The accommodation is adaptable, with bedrooms on both floors and a spacious first floor sitting room, positioned to take advantage of the fine aspect. Further features include a well laid out fitted kitchen, open-plan with the breakfast/family room, which in turn opens out to a large conservatory with doors to the terrace, and a dining room, creating lovely space for entertaining.

The grounds extend to about an acre in total, divided with about half being a delightful established garden with lawns and screened by mature trees and hedging. This links to a further area of meadow, with a wooden stable block, comprising a tack room and a studio.
