Weekend in Kent

Last weekend we stayed with a couple of friends in an old coach house in Kent. This was the 4th property we have stayed in managed by Rural Retreats as we know they will be of consistently high quality with beautiful decor. This one was like stepping into a magazine!

This was the garden looking out from this kitchen. I want this kitchen!!!
Here is hubby relaxing in the sitting room ....
and one of our bedrooms.
We spent the Saturday in Royal Tunbridge Wells. There was an antiques fair on so I had a good look around that but didn't find anything I wanted to buy. There was also this wonderful second hand bookshop where I spent all of 20p on two books!

The weather was absolutely beautiful and it looks as though it will be the same this weekend.

Having decided to concentrate more on linens and kitchenalia we are having a SALE on our website where many of the items are half price. Do pop along and have a look.


  1. What a beautiful property! A perfect way to have a lovely weekend.

  2. Thanks for the tip on Rural Retreats, you really couldn't wish for a nicer place to stay, although sometimes if they are too idyllic I don't want to come home! I love short breaks, even if you end up not travelling too far, you always discover great new places and you really don't need too much spending money either, especially if you have two great finds for 20p! The weather this week has been lovely although not so good today, not so good for me as there is no excuse now not to get the housework done. x

  3. That really does look like a lovely place to stay, will make a note of Rural Retreats it is always good to have personal recoomedations.

  4. I love a weekend away too.
    Now I could settle in Tunbridge Wells quite happily.
    Just popping over to the website now...

  5. Royal Tunbridge Wells! I know that name... from watching British episodes of "Bargain Hunt"! Your photos are lovely! And I want that kitchen, too! =)

  6. Shame you haven't made it to Shepton yet. I should wait for the better weather now though! I hadn't realised you were going to concentrate on linens and kitchenalia. Let me know if you need stock - my linen mountain gets ever higher!!

  7. Hope you enjoyed T Wells! I see from your photograph that when you visited the bookstore, you were near my favourite shop Le Petite Jardin, did you get a chance to pop in and take a look?
