Little Apple Barn at Hamptons Farmhouse is a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Gorgeous converted barn with wonderful, sweeping views of uninterrupted undulating countryside with the village of Plaxtol in the distance. This one bedroom conversion has high vaulted ceilings and oak beams complimented by the underfloor heated slate floor and granite worktops. It is flooded with light from the huge windows with far reaching views. In the summer just open them up and breath in the fresh air, sitting comfortably on one of the sofas with a drink in your hand.
Hamptons Farmhouse is located in the beautifully rural area between the villages of Plaxtol and West Peckham in Kent, the Garden of England. Amazingly quiet and peaceful, set in 9 acres of land, all that can be seen is rolling countryside, yet we are just 32 miles from the centre of London with all its theatres, tourist attractions, shopping and cultural activities. It is an easy journey to London, only 35 mins from Sevenoaks to Charring Cross by train. From there the London Eye, Theatre land, Covent Garden, Leicester Sq, West End and other tourist attractions are in easy striking distance.
On our 9 Acre site there is so much to do: past the cottages unfolds the beautiful gardens with duck pond on which you can paddle around on the row boat. Or play open air table tennis under the shelter of the barn; take afternoon tea on the lawns or if you feel more energetic play croquet or even tennis in the all weather courts.
The Hamptons Farmhouse site is very child-friendly, it is safe and secure (including the water areas) but is filled with adventure and excitement. The 'Fort' is a camouflaged climbing frame with swings, monkey bars, climbing wall and 40m zip wire. By the giant redwood tree, on which swings and trapeze hang, is the massive 17' x 12' super bouncy Jump King trampoline. The genuine gypsy caravan is a cosy place to chill out for children and adults alike. The woodland tree-house with 'super-slide'; secret dens; seven dwarf's woodland playhouse,;climbing trees; and farmhouse animals add to the overall blissful experience.
