We transformed this grade II-listed oast house into high quality, characterful, spacious accommodation in 2017 (2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms). Oast houses are a real feature of the Kentish landscape. Springfield Oast is in our garden & has views of trees and fields. Guests have their own courtyard and can also use our huge garden. Perfectly located for Kent's historic castles and gardens; London & beaches are also within an hour; several lovely local footpaths. Cleaned to an excellent standard.

Lo spazio
The oast house is upside down in layout so that the living room benefits from all the height of the kiln roof and views across fields. It has a 'spindle' connecting from the white tip outside and this turns indoors on windy days. The kitchen is spacious and enjoys a Juliette balcony overlooking our garden with its peaceful willow trees.

On the middle floor is a twin room that can instead be made up as a 6' wide super king if you prefer (let me know when booking). This has ensuite toilet and basin. In addition there is a shower room on the ground floor for users of this room.

On the ground floor is the master bedroom with kingsize bed and a further ensuite bathroom (bath with shower over). Leading from this bedroom is a secluded and sunny courtyard just for guests.

In addition guests are welcome to use our massive garden which contains tyre swing, trampoline, wendy house and chickens (but no cockerel!).

Springfield Oast has a number of different floor levels, which is part of its original agricultural design, so guests need to be confident on stairs. We are happy to welcome children of any age so long as you can cope with unfenced stairs! We can supply cot, high chair, potty, baby bath. I can put stair gates up in the living room, request at time of booking, which means in this room you have peace of mind but bear in mind there will be ungated stairs elsewhere (e.g. leading up from the kitchen, one in the master bedroom).

Parents please note that Springfield Oast is next to our outdoor pool; this is fenced (waist height) with locked gates. The pool is for our family's use. To respect your privacy we will not use it when you are in the oast house.

Accesso per gli ospiti
Springfield Oast is detached and has its own private courtyard garden. Guest access is through our garden which guests are welcome to make use of. The garden is nearly 2 acres so there is plenty of room. Guests can park up to 2 cars on our driveway, again there is plenty of space.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
In July and August 2020 I am offering 4 night breaks starting Monday morning until Friday morning. This is to allow for a deep clean on Fridays and a 72 hour incubation period between guests.

Mereworth, Inghilterra, Regno Unito

Mereworth (“Merry-worth”) is a typical Kentish village and is famous for growing strawberries. Our next door neighbour is the "exclusive" strawberry supplier to the Wimbledon Tennis Championships and we get strawberries from the farm. 100 years ago the region was famous for growing hops (these give flavour to beer) and that is why there are many oast houses dotted all over Kent. Their white tips, called 'cowls', give them a distinctive look in the landscape.

Mereworth village has a spectacular church with a local reputation for its delicious cakes and cream teas in the summer (not yet open summer 2020). There is a village pub a short drive away and a pub renowned for its beer, food and setting is a 20 minute walk away in West Peckham (The Swan on The Green) (both currently closed June 2020). Mereworth Woods stretch for miles and you can walk to them from the doorstep. During lockdown we have discovered loads of different paths through the woods and there is also a good cycle route through the woods suitable for families.

Within a short drive are loads of castles and stately homes (e.g. Leeds, Tonbridge, Hever, Bodiam, Ightam Mote, Penshurst, Knole...). Further historic connections are to Charles Darwin who lived nearby at Down House and Winston Churchill who lived nearby at Chartwell, and Canterbury is within an hour's drive. There are lots of farms and zoos for family days out. It is easy to get to London by train in about an hour. Also there are many nice beaches within 45-60 minutes all around the Kent coast (e.g. Whitstable, Broadstairs).

In July 2020 the following venues are open, most require you to pre-book tickets: Leeds castle, Penshurst Place, Sissinghurst, Winston Churchill's home Chartwell, Charles Darwin's home Down House, Great Comp Garden, Dover castle, RHS Wisley Gardens . Springfield Oast is situated in a country village where there are lots of footpaths through the fields and also has one of the largest areas of woodland in the south east where you can ramble for hours without meeting anyone. Greensands Way and the North Downs nature trail are both close by.
