The retreat is one of the first in the country, alongside The Holistic Medical Centre in Harley Street and Grange St Pauls 5* Hotel, to have installed 'Real Sunlight's' innovative health-giving sun simulators. The sun room is part of the St Tropez-style large living area and provides a multi sensory tropical haven where guests can top up their tan and feel fabulous since it is beneficial against a whole host of health conditions such as SAD, stress, arthritis, skin problems, sleeping disorders, Vitamin D deficiency and so on. Whether it is enjoying playing celebrity chef with the 7+hob range cooker, spinning the high end vinyl decks as a superstar DJ, or relaxing in front of a great movie in the authentic cinema room featuring a 3D TV, velvet cinema seats and popcorn machine, guests will have a great time in this house! For an excellent night's sleep, fully unwind in the boutique-style individually-designed bedrooms featuring 2 king size bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and hand carved marble fireplaces plus 1 double, 3 twin bedrooms with en suite facilities, and 1 single bedroom. There is also a family bathroom for the double and single bedroom guests to share. Sumptuous linen and towels are provided. For those that can bear to leave the house, it is an ideal base to enjoy Kent's many attractions. Sandy beaches, rolling countryside, picturesque villages, historic Canterbury, port of Dover and the Channel Tunnel are all within easy reach. The upper floors are unoccupied so visitors will have sole occupancy of the house and garden. Shop and pub within 500 yards. Our changeover days are Mondays and Fridays. The house is available for 3 night weekend stays with arrival on Friday as well as 4 night mid week stays with arrival on Monday. 7 night plus longer stays are also welcome. Occasionally we can offer discounts for mid week 4 night stays so please do inquire :) More
