This lovingly refurbished carriage presents quirky accommodation in a stunning countryside setting, perfect for celebrating a special occasion with a loved one or a romantic getaway for two.

Located in the heart of the East Sussex countryside with beautiful rural views, this property is within easy reach of the local pub. The carriage enjoys a beautiful and timeless view across to historic Bodiam Castle, which is managed by the National Trust and is well worth a visit. Hop on the nearby Kent and East Sussex railway and take a visit to the market town of Tenterden with its tree lined high street, and wide range of independent shops, restaurants and cafes. For keen walkers, there are ample local footpaths surrounding the property which are perfect to explore the surrounding areas and enjoy unspoilt views. 5 minutes stroll within the grounds of Quarry Farm, there is also a café and farm shop, "The Hub" offering Wi-Fi, water sports, a beauty salon and many other facilities.

The carriage is accessed by a wooden ramp into a small entrance hall with a cloakroom with WC. Enter into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a warm and cosy area in which to unwind after a long stroll in the countryside, with a wood burner, comfy sofa, armchair and TV/DVD, and a small dining table with seating for two. The compact but well-appointed kitchen contains a gas oven and hob, microwave and a fridge/freezer. The double bedroom is located at the other end of the cabin through a sliding door and features a double bed with a small basin, and en-suite shower.

Outside, there is a covered veranda with a hot tub to relax and seating for six to eight people, with two sofas, a large wooden table, and two built in benches.

Excellent location. Undercover outside deck really useful, with a view of the castle whilst sitting in the hot tub! Plenty of space to exercise the dog. Fridge not as small as the website makes it sound. Kitchen equipment basic. Dogs are very welcome.

The Lady Stella is in need of a lot of TLC as she has sadly not aged well.
