The Oast House Part 1

Monday 18 February 2013

Ok, so I suggest you brace yourself for some loveliness overload. I’m about to show you the little B&B we stayed at on our recent trip to Kent. Nestled amongst orchards and picturesque countryside, I knew we were in for a treat when our car pulled into the the driveway of the Oast House in the village of Wittersham. Oast houses were originally used as kilns for drying out hops - they have always intrigued me so I was so excited to get to stay in one. After a long journey, we were greeted by several chickens and 3 cranky geese (2 of which are the rare fluffy sebastopol geese). Inside awaited a roaring fire, abundant scented candles and the most luxurious room I have ever stayed in (complete with a French copper bath)!

Here’s a little taster of the outside, tomorrow I’ll show you the inside!
