Description

The space

Just an hour from London, Deer Cottage is 2 separate dwellings next to each other; a bathroom and 2 bedrooms - a super king bed in a large room & a small twin/double room. The other building has a fully equipped kitchen and sitting room with a log burning stove. This arrangement works well when one party (i.e. children) have gone to bed and the other can stay up without worrying about noise.
There is a south facing terrace overlooking our pretty garden and a large expanse of lawn. It gets sun-drenched in the afternoon and evening, a perfect place for a BBQ and hanging out together, where wisteria climbs around a shaded overhang.

This is a unique property where you can be left to your own privacy, yet there are other people around - alone but not lonely! Simon and I live in the main house opposite Deer Cottage and we have people living in the Old Kennels and other converted outhouses, further away from the house.

Guest access

You have access to the surrounding woods, with walks across the local deer park, an ideal place for seeing wildlife and hearing birdsong, but minutes from the historic Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells.

Interaction with guests

We are very friendly artistic family who love to interact and show guests the local area, yet also realize people like to be left to their own devices. Living on the property means we are there should you need anything.

The neighbourhood

Tunbridge Wells is a beautiful spa town with great pubs, cafes and restaurant and shopping. There is often a jazz festival or arts festival on.
We can recommend local places to eat at and also to visit, such as Penshurst Place, Groombridge Place, Sissinghurst Garden etc.

Getting around

London to Tunbridge Wells is just a 50 minute journey and we are 5 minutes from the station. If you are traveling by train, we can pick you up & drop you off at the station (5 mins away). A car would be preferable if you are planning to discover the area, although there are local taxis.


House Rules
Check in is anytime after 3PM

As there are other people living on the property, we must all take into consideration everyone else in the usual way; it is a community where everyone lives separately in their own privacy.
If you have children, please understand you are responsible for them at all times and don't let them wander off too far without you.
Smoking is forbidden inside the cottage; if you smoke outside please clear up cigarette butts.

Deer cottage is a really lovely place for a break, especially with a dog. You are away from everything but only 5 minutes drive from Tunbridge Wells if you need anything. We had a great time with our dog and would definitely recommend it to others.

Perfect little hideaway with beautiful grounds, country walks, dog friendly, and close to local pub. We've stayed here several times and couldn't love it more! Highly recommend

A lovely, idyllic setting nestled in the woods. The rooms were just right for our needs and the hosts were very generous with the supplies they provided. If relaxing in the sunshine with a glass of wine is your thing - this is the perfect location. Birds chirping, walks through the woods and a cosy wood burning stove to relax in front of. Plenty of crockery, proper sized mugs, good info and lots of books and games should you need entertainment. They also have a really good sized TV which they kids were very happy about!

We had a truly wonderful time here with our 2 and 6 year olds. They loved the garden and woods, the trampoline, and playing with the friendly dog. We loved the sunny patio, the surroundings and perhaps most of all the hospitality of Celia and Simon. Everything is thought of and provided. Thank you and hope to come back!

I am enjoying life at 75 with my husband Simon. I have 5 children and 10 grand children. I am a garden designer, having had the chance to be a pupil at RHS headquarters at Wisley, and learn garden design from Diarmuid Gavin (all filmed for a 5 part series on BBC 2) I went on to do a Show garden at BBC Gardener’s World Live in Birmingham sponsored by Warburtons Bakery. I now design gardens locally. I would love to show tenants some of the wonderful private gardens in the area.
