Bodiam station, one of the boarding points for The Kent & Sussex Railway is at the bottom of the drive.  The property is surrounded by lawns and flower beds and a well-behaved dog is welcome on a lead.  There is a local bakery in Northiam - Will's, which sells delicious bread and patisseries and there is a farm shop on site called The Hub, where you can access your WiFi, enjoy some breakfast and pick up some local produce and beverages. For something extra special - the owner has a beautifully restored Alvis and would be happy to collect you from a local station if arriving by rail.

Wonderfully unique and good fun property would recommend.Ms R Lewis - 5th December 2016
Brilliant, lovely quirky property in a truly gorgeous location.Mrs D Baldry - 28th October 2016
Unique and fabulous!Ms L Turnbull - 6th September 2016
A very clever concept which combined the holiday atmosphere of a caravan, with exceptional outside space allowing us to enjoy the peaceful surroundings in almost any weather. Relaxing in a hot tub whilst taking in the beauty of the countryside is a real treat, which is what the setting of this property is all about. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly with the owner on hand if required.Mrs Jane Kojak - 7th August 2016
