Just a short drive away is the famous Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens, the former home of Vita Sackville-West.

Keen walkers can explore the multitude of local footpaths nearby, and for those looking to venture slightly further afield the fantastic Kent and East Sussex coastline can be reached in a little over half an hour.

A small courtyard brings you to a charming front door. Beautifully decorated throughout, the vaulted ceiling and original beams create a striking view upon entering. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner greets you with its light and airy interior, and is a great place to relax on the comfortable sofa whilst watching films on the Smart TV with DVD. The dining table and four chairs makes for a delightful area in which to enjoy romantic meals which have been whipped up in the bespoke, well-equipped kitchen. This spacious area boasts an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, coffee machine and washer/drier.Retreat after a long day to the bedroom which features a king-size bed and the shower room has a shower and WC.

A path from the front door leads around to the large garden with its breath-taking views across the local countryside. There is a patio table and chairs, charcoal BBQ and two sun loungers on which to enjoy a spot of sunbathing. There is private parking for one car provided close to the property.

A beautiful cottage in a perfect location overlooking a valley with spectacular sun sets. The cottage has modern facilities and is well equipped. The host was warm and friendly and responded promptly to any queries. There is plenty to see and do in the area, particularly if you like walking. A perfect get away!

We have stayed at many holiday homes but this one surpassed any previous ones. Every need was catered for. Everything of such good quality, a lovely double shower and a beautiful kitchen. The view across the valley was amazing and will never be forgotten. I wish I could bottle it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cart Lodge. It was welcoming and comfortable and immaculately clean. The view is incredible and we would never tire of enjoying it. The owner is very helpful and left a lovely welcoming basket which was a nice touch. Lots to see and do in the area and we wouldnt hesitate to return.

This is such a lovely place to stay. The conversion has been done to such a high standard. It is in a small hamlet about half a mile from Goudhurst. It is quite remote and quiet. The lounge looks out over the weald and we saw some lovely sunsets. The owner supplied a great food basket of eggs, apple juice, ground coffee, crisps and biscuits, as welRead morel as good quality toiletries. Outside there is good seating and dining areas. Superb place to stay. Hide

Cart Lodge was as good as we hoped from seeing the interior views on the website and it didn't disappoint in any respect, in fact it was as much the extra little touches and quality of all equipment etc. that was impressive. The owners were also on hand to help with any queries and so we had a very enjoyable week. B&C
