Holiday Rental House
Pack up the family and friends and retreat to Bowden Lodge, an immaculate barn conversion by the coast in Kingsdown. Bowden Lodge is a large family house in the small village of Kingsdown. A short walk away is the beach, where you’ll find views of the White Cliffs, beach huts and seafood at the local pub. Stroll along the coastal path to Deal, for great shops and restaurants. The golf club is on your doorstep for keen golfers. The Lodge is a converted flint stone barn, nestled in expansive gardens and grounds. While the house has retained much of its rustic charm- exposed brickwork, wooden beams, it’s also gained a few modern touches. With the addition of large TVs, luxurious bathrooms and a pool. There's plenty of room for the whole family or a large group of friends.

Bowden Lodge is a large family house in the small village of Kingsdown. A short walk away is the beach, where you’ll find views of the White Cliffs, beach huts and seafood at the local pub. Stroll along the coastal path to Deal, for great shops and restaurants. The golf club is on your doorstep for keen golfers. The Lodge is a converted flint stone barn, nestled in expansive gardens and grounds. While the house has retained much of its rustic charm- exposed brickwork, wooden beams, it’s also gained a few modern touches. With the addition of large TVs, luxurious bathrooms and a pool. There's plenty of room for the whole family or a large group of friends. The Lodge sleeps 12, with five doubles and a twin bedroom. There’s no waiting for the shower in the morning, as most of the bedrooms have en suites, and a family bathroom is also on hand with a large bath and power shower. If the English Channel is a little cold for you, enjoy the luxury of your own secluded pool instead. Splash around with the kids or soak in the sun, cocktail in hand. There's also a BBQ so hungry swimmers can enjoy a feast at the end of the day. In the evening, retreat to the games room for rounds of pool and movie nights. Or sink into comfy sofas and relax by the wood burner. Wake up to breakfast around the farmhouse kitchen table, and plan the day ahead. There's a well equipped kitchen at your fingertips and top notch food shops nearby if you want to whip up some dishes. There's plenty of options for eating out otherwise. Children are made to feel at home, as the owners have provided everything they need and plenty of toys to keep them entertained. But don't forget the dog, the Lodge is pet friendly and has ample room to roam free. Ground Floor Sitting Room: Comfy corner sofa and armchair, wood burner, music system, large TV with DVDs. Games Room: Snooker table, 2 sofas and a large TV, childrens toys. Kitchen: Well equipped, large table, aga, dishwasher and Smeg fridge/freezer.

Peaceful location but very close to the sea and local amenities. The house is very comfortable, spacious and well appointed, with all modern conveniences. We found the property manager very helpful.
