Hidden down a quiet country lane with sweeping views of the beautiful Kent countryside, Lower Standen Farm and Granary offer the perfect country hideaway whatever the time of year. The glorious setting, lovely garden and heated outdoor pool provide for a wonderful summer holiday, or in the winter the character, original beams and stunning inglenook fireplace provide cosy, luxurious comfort for a fabulous break. Furnished with flair and taste, the farmhouse offers stylish country living for the extended family or large groups. There are many local attractions to visit: National Trust properties, gardens, vineyards, the country towns of Tenterden and Cranbrook - plus the coast for historic Rye, Hastings and Winchelsea. The property offers versatile accommodation for up to 16 people.
We are a family with four children including three boys, which in most part drove our desire for a wonderful country property with space, both inside and out. We also enjoy large family gatherings and Lower Standen Farm is perfect for those.
Natalie purchased this farmhouse in 2012
We bought Lower Standen Farm and Granary in November 2012 to be our family home. We set a wonderful local architect to work redesigning and updating it to a high standard so we could enjoy the beautiful property, country views, peace, outdoor space and fantastic pool. This work was completed in autumn 2013. Our work then meant we couldn't take advantage of it full time (we still use it for Christmas and summer holidays) so we are - somewhat reluctantly - letting it out for discerning short term holiday makers. Please only rent it if you plan to look after it.
Lower Standen Farm and Granary offer peace, beauty and a wealth of local attractions. Marry the tranquillity of the countryside with an activity agenda meaning adults and children alike find it tough to get bored. Also it's hard to find a pub not serving good food in the area - and you can even get Michelin starred food.
