Set in a pretty rural location, providing a special getaway for two in the glorious Kent countryside with breathtaking views across the owner’s vineyard, making it a perfect place to kick back and relax.

Situated in the heart of a working vineyard overlooking the grapevines and offering a peaceful location in the Kent countryside, this enchanting cottage offers a rural escape from everyday life. When not exploring the many footpaths that cross the rolling countryside beyond the vineyard, guests can head into nearby Tenterden, 4 miles, and browse the wide range of independent shops or enjoy a delicious meal at the village pub nearby. For those keen to sample the delights of English wines there are several other vineyards nearby making this a perfect base to explore those and other delightful attractions. With the Kent and East Sussex coastline just a short drive away, there is plenty to do and see in this spectacular pocket of the South East.

Enter this charming cottage that is attached to the owner’s main house into the cosy lounge/diner with a comfy sofa on which to curl up. Watch your favourite programmes on the Smart TV after a busy day exploring the local area or enjoy a romantic meal at the dining table with seating for two. The compact kitchen offers everything you will need for whipping up delicious meals including an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge with ice compartment, and coffee machine. The ground floor is completed with a shower room with a shower and WC. The mezzanine bedroom which is located in the eaves of the property is accessed via a ladder from the lounge/diner up into a comfortable sleeping area with a king-size bed frame with reading light, power sockets, shelf storage and small window with a blackout blind.

Heading outside, steps lead up to a secluded garden with a wood-fired hot tub, patio table and chairs, charcoal BBQ and two sun loungers. Relax after a busy day and enjoy watching the sunset over the vineyard with a glass of red.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Grape Escape. We had all facilities and items needed for a short stay and the hot tub was amazing with great views. We really relaxed during our countryside stay and didn't want to leave. Liz and Tom were very helpful when needed and their communication was great before, during and after our stay. We can't waitRead more to come back!!! Hide

Really loved our week here. We had our (large) dog with us and the space was big enough for the 3 of us and lots of forest walks nearby. Great location for exploring Kent and even better having gorgeous wines from the vineyard itself to try whilst relaxing in the hot tub watching the sunsets. The cottage was done to a really high standard and Liz aRead morend Tom were very welcoming and helpful. Would love to stay again and definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay somewhere a bit different. Hide

We absolutely loved the grape escape. It has been kitted out to a really high standard and has everything you need for a short break. The hot tub in the garden with views of the vineyard is perfect for relaxing. The hosts Liz and Tom are so friendly and cannot do enough for you. The location is brilliant there is plenty to go and see locally and a Read moretrip round the vineyard is highly recommended. We would definitely recommend it and stay again. Hide

Great location. Lots of lovely local walks if you have a dog and only 1/2hr from dog friendly beach at Camber Sands. Vineyard right on your doorstep to visit and sample. Why not have a glass while in the surroundings of your hot tub. Keep an eye on it though as it soon went up in temp we found and did take a while to get the temp back down again toRead more acceptable. Owners were very helpful and friendly too which always helps. Lovely week spent here and would go back again. Hide

Just had a brilliant four night break at The Grape Escape. The hosts Liz and Tom are fantastic, left us to enjoy our break, but were on hand if needed. The property catered for all our needs plus more. The area is great for dog walks and off course wine tasting. We enjoyed watching the sunset in the evening with a glass of wine from the hot tub. WeRead more liked the quirky lay out of the property and that the grape vines were adjacent to the garden. We will definitely be returning!! Hide
