    > This stunning Grade ll listed oast is unique to the Kent and Sussex countryside, in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This delightful holiday property offers a plethora of beams and an abundance of character, with glorious views across the rolling countryside, particularly from the first floor living space. Originally used to dry hops grown locally, which were then sent to the brewer’s to be used for flavouring beers. Sadly, the twin roundels and the cowl at the top of the kiln has long since disappeared, but the main part of the barn, which was used for the actual storing of hops prior to drying, still has an oak winch in the living area as a reminder of its working past. Situated adjacent to the owner’s 16th-century house built by a Wealden ironmaster, on a delightful, rural, single track lane, guests can access the orchard, tennis court and owner’s paddocks which slope down to the stream at the bottom of the valley. Wadhurst village is close by, and Royal Tunbridge Wells is 7 miles. Bewl Water offers cycle hire, fishing and boating activities. Visit Bateman’s, Rudyard Kipling’s family home (NT), Bodiam Castle (NT), and the beautiful gardens at Scotney Castle and Pashley Manor, or simply enjoy the many walks through the beautiful Sussex countryside directly from the property. Take the opportunity to explore the award-winning English vineyards in the area and sample some superb wines. Wadhurst railway station, 3 miles, provides good connections to London and further sightseeing opportunities. Beach 20 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    We stayed here with a group of friends over the last May bank holiday weekend. We had a great time. The cottage - barn conversion - looks lovely and is certainly one of the best kept properties we've stayed in. Even though the cottage is historic and very old indeed, the equipment inside is modern and fresh. The area is beautiful and lush. Perfect for walks or enjoying the countryside in general. The owners are incredibly welcoming and very forthcoming in making our stay comfortable and memorable.

    The Oast barn has been converted to a very high standard with quality fittings and 'olde worlde' furnishings in sympathy with the quirky aesthetic of the retained original internal features. Scrag Oak Oast is an ideal environment for couples or families looking for an unusual base to explore the area. We stayed for a weekend to celebrate a family 60th birthday. Unfortunately, the owners were not available at our appointed arrival and departure times to thank personally for a very enjoyable couple of days.

    The cottage is beautifully located outside of the town of Wadhurst, hence a lower mark for Local amenities. But the town is a short car journey away with pubs shops and restaurants. It's a wonderful place to spend time with family and/or friends. The owners are accessible and responsive and made sure that we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this cottage.

    Scrag Oak Oast provided the perfect base for a quiet weekend break for my two friends and me. It was snug and cosy, excellently equipped and so beautifully rustic and historic. The owner was welcoming but unobtrusive. The nearby town is a short drive away through narrow, twisty country lanes, adding to the feeling of being "away from it all". I'd recommend arriving at Scrag Oak in daylight if possible, as the drive on a wet, dark evening was a bit scary. We were only there for the weekend but feel that the property would be ideally located for a longer stay, and to take advantage of its proximity to lots of interesting places. Even a day trip to France via Dover or the channel tunnel would not be out of the question. Before we departed Scrag Oak we were already planning to return and bring more family and friends with us, including a pet dog, with whom to enjoy some bracing country walks.

    Plumbing and lack of water pressure is a real issue for a rental at this price point

    We had the most amazing holiday at Scrag Oak Oast. Beautiful weather and great house with everything we needed. We loved the tennis court and the garden and when it was a little cooler there was plenty of space inside for us all to relax. The surrounding area is beautiful with plenty of walks and places to visit.
