The detail

Dating back to the early 19th century this once working smock mill has been lovingly restored to create a holiday place with a real difference. Oozing with a vintage style and a romantic vibe, the mill is perfect for two and is ideal for a relaxing break with that someone special. Breathe in the fresh country air and soak up the far-reaching views before curling up on the sumptuous sofa at this tranquil rural abode.

Ascend the steps on the outside of the picture-perfect mill to find yourself upon wooden staging which has far-reaching countryside views. This platform, which encircles the entire building, is the ideal spot for enjoying those warm sunny days or tranquil starry nights.
Head inside to admire the mill’s three floors which each retain some of their historic original features. The first floor is home to the mill’s main living area and is beautifully styled with a natural feel. It has white-washed brick walls, a stripped wooden floor, beamed ceilings and traditional shuttered windows. Along with its bespoke country kitchen and seating areas it has an exceptional attention to detail which will make you feel truly special. Antique books line the shelves, pretty flowers adorn the tables and fresh produce tempts you from the welcome basket.

Head up to the next two floors and you’ll find a spacious king-size bedroom and a character-filled bathroom. Retaining original and restored pieces from the mill, the rooms have an authentic feel with beamed walls, high ceilings and pretty sash windows. The sumptuous bed is perfect for early nights or long lie-ins while the luxury roll top bath has room for two.

If you can tear yourself away from your romantic den then there is much to enjoy in the local area. Directly surrounding the mill is beautiful countryside which is great for walkers, bike riders and nature lovers. Sight-seers will love the array of National Trust properties in the area, including the stunning Sissinghurst Castle Gardens, the romantic Bodiam Castle and the country house of Scotney Gardens. For a more relaxed day, the local Rolvenden and Benenden village pubs are also less than a mile away and are well worth a visit.
