House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • No pets allowed

With a village store, post office and a butchers with a license to deal in game, Plaxtol has a worldly charm that belies its now small population. The local pub, The Papermakers Arms, tells the story of the local paper making industry, once a major employer in the village, and is the perfect place for a relaxing evening spent enjoying the roaring log fires or for sampling the delightful Sunday roasts on offer. If you’re out at night, watch out for tall, fair middle aged lady dressed in all white galloping around on her white horse. The so-called ‘Haunting of Lady Vain’ has been seen and heard in the village in fields that she once owned by many local residents. The Plaxtol Heritage Walks will take in all the village sites and many more.

Further afield, there is plenty to keep you busy, with London a short train ride away and the major towns of Kent within a 30 minute drive. Nearby Ightham Mote is one of the most unusual stately homes in the country and well worth a visit.

The Sevenoaks District

Allens House Lodge is situated on the

outskirts of the pretty village of Plaxtol, a little gem nestling in a

picturesque fold in the Bourne Valley, one of the most scenically beautiful

parts of the garden of England and an area of outstanding natural beauty. Those

wishing to holiday in this area will have plenty of things to keep them

occupied during their self-catering vacation. In the little village of Plaxtol,

there is a church, a butcher, a village

shop and a local pub nearby for you to enjoy nearby during your stay.

Allens House Lodge is about a 30

minute drive to the famous Sissinghurst

Castle garden and garden at Scotney Castle, both National Trust. Closer to the

property there are interesting gardens at Marle Place, Great Comp and the Himalayan

garden at Riverhill, Sevenoaks – don’t worry the yeti is friendly ! Kent is

famous for its wonderful gardens, living up to its name as The Garden of

England. Although this area boasts tranquility, 'civilization' is within a

short reach of the property.

Leeds Castle is just a short distance

from Allens House Lodge and is one of the most beautiful castles in Britain.

With a moated castle, spacious grounds and even a maze there is plenty to keep

everyone amused for a whole day out. For those who like excitement Leeds Castle

also has a Go Ape attraction which is a high wire climbing adventure through

the treetops. You can also book at Segway ride round the castle grounds and in

the summer months, there are open air concerts and theatre.

Knole Park is also within just a few

miles of the property. Knole Park is an English country house surrounded by a

deer park, ideal for a day out for all the family. Let the kids enjoy the deer

free roaming around the parkland and explore the exhibitions this country house

has to offer. At the end of a long day looking around, go and enjoy a

traditionally English cream tea in the Brewhouse tea-room.

Under 10 miles away is the beautiful

and enchanting Penshurst Place and Gardens, another exciting day out for you to

enjoy during your stay at Allens House Lodge. With plenty of activities such as

crafts, mazes, garden trails and an adventure playground the whole family will

enjoy this visit. Furthermore, dine out at any of the three fantastic places

during your visit to the historical home, including The Garden Restaurant, The

Porcupine Pantry and The Kiosk.

Under 10 miles again is Hever Castle,

another charming day out for you to discover. Tour and learn of the 700 years

of history this double-moated, magnificent 13th century house has to offer.

Hever Castle, once the home of Anne Boleyn, also has an audio tour for you to

experience during your visit, whilst you walk around all the stunning gardens

and admire the large lake. Take the children to go explore the adventure

playgrounds and let them roam around the beautiful outdoors. As a real treat in

the summer months (weather permitting), this castle boasts an exciting water

maze for all the family's entertainment.

Furthermore, one can hire a little boat during certain times of year,

another fun aspect to Hever Castle. Nearby Ightham Mote is one of the most unusual

stately homes in the County and another National Trust property, Old Soar

Manor, is just minutes walk from Allens Lodge

Again, Westerham and Sir Winston

Churchill’s home at Chartwell is within easy reach and well worth a visit.

Furthermore, Allens House Lodge is

within a short distance of both Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone. One

can easily jump on a 40-minute train to the exciting capital, London, either

from Tonbridge, Sevenoaks or Borough Green stations. Allens House Lodge is also

within easy access of the coast and its beaches. Attractions such as Dover

Castle and the Royal Dockyards are well worth a visit.

Tonbridge, just a short drive away,

is a thriving town equipped with Tonbridge Castle and its wonderful Gatehouse,

it takes you back almost 740 years! Set in grounds overlooking the River

Medway, Tonbridge Castle is reputedly one of England's finest example of a

Norman motte and bailey castle. Tours are available from the Tourist

Information Centre. There is a great bookshop located in this part of

Tonbridge, Mr Books, in a beautiful medieval building. Tonbridge even has its

own theatre, The Oast Theatre inside the 19th Century Kentish oast house, with

10 productions every year!

A visit to Royal Tunbridge Wells is a

must and under 30 minutes away from Plaxtol. It's a very attractive town with

great shopping facilities. It was established as a spa town in Georgian times

and was very popular under Richard (Beau) Nash when the Pantiles and its

Chalybeate Spring attracted visitors from all over Europe who wanted to try the

waters. Nowadays, it is a pleasant place to wander, admire the architecture and

visit its antique shops and cafes. Great for those who love shopping too!

For those wishing to make a day trip

to France, Kent offers both the Eurostar Train at Ashford and the Channel

Tunnel at Folkestone which will transport you to a French location in 30

minutes - just don't forget to pack your passport!

For golfers this area has many

options, there are lovely courses at Leeds Castle, Lamberhurst and a public

‘pay and play’ course within 10 minutes drive of the property at Poult Wood,

Tonbridge.

The area is popular with cyclists and

bicycles can be locked safely within the owners garage. There is off road

cycling available at Bedgebury, where you can also hire cycles.

It will be no surprise to a visitor

that Allens House Lodge is situated in an area which is extremely popular with

ramblers. There are many interesting walks through wonderful countryside within

metres of the property – don’t forget your walking boots or wellies !

"Friendly country retreat"

This is a great place to experience the Kentish countryside. The space was just right for the 5 of us, 3 adults and 2 toddlers. Small kitchen had all we needed, only frustration was the small fridge. … More
