"A newly converted barn with vaulted ceiling, open-plan living area, underfloor heating and modern kitchen in Wormshill, east of Maidstone. Steps lead down to a twin room, and upstairs there’s an en suite master bedroom with skylights and beams. There are walks on the doorstep and the Blacksmith Arms is a stroll away." - The Guardian (December, 2018) ’Cosy UK country cottages for a great New Year getaway’
Norwood Dairy was home to fantastic cattle herd before it sat empty for many years, but has been given a new lease of life as a carefully converted, brand new self-catering holiday cottage. It is sat close to the Manor House, a beautiful 16th Century wood-framed building with pretty flower borders and gardens.
Enter into the large open plan sitting and dining area; with high vaulted ceilings, underfloor heating and a cosy reading corner, there is plenty of space for everyone to relax and unwind. Through a doorway, there is a separate kitchen - complete with Corian worktops - allows you a little escapism to prepare dinner, while still being close by to the family. A couple of steps lead to the convenient downstairs twin room and shower room, and from the sitting area a beautiful flight of oak stairs brings you to the master en-suite bedroom in the oldest part of the building, with carefully restored exposed beams from the original construction of the barn.
Outside there is a small walled courtyard, a safe place for the kids to play as you enjoy this little suntrap. When the mood takes you, there are plentiful walks through the vast open countryside all around, with views over to the Isle of Sheppey on a clear day.
