Converted Cart Lodge Sleeps 4, near Ashford, Kent, England

AA 5 Star Self Catering - Visit www.darlingbudsfram.co.uk for more information and Short Break prices and availability.

Take a step back in time and come and stay at Darling Buds Farm, the scene of the internationally famous 90s TV series (based on the books by H E Bates) which introduced the world to the Larkins, the family that everyone wished they could be part of. Millions of us booked a date on Sunday nights in front of the television to share the adventures and lovable rogueish exploits of Pop and Ma Larkin and their family, played out in some the most idyllic Kentish countryside. Our hearts were captured by the beauty and simplistic living of the 1950s where family came first, good living a close second (plenty of food and drink for all), and the outside world was kept at arms length (Pop's money making schemes were legendary, as well as his efforts to avoid the taxman).

Pop Larkin would have loved you to drop by for a chat and a cup of tea, whilst Ma Larkin rustled up a proper spread of homecooked treats so now you have the opportunity to experience the good life for a few relaxing 'perfick' days in the heart of the Darling Buds countryside. There are 35 acres on the Farm estate to wander around and explore

Our stunning Cart Lodge is set directly opposite the Farmhouse and sleeps four people. There are two ensuite bedrooms (available as either twin or doubles) set off the comfortable main lounge and kitchen area with its wooden beamed vaulted ceiling. We hope we have thought of everything that you might reasonably need to self cater; there's an electric oven and hob, fridge freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster and dishwasher, plus p[lenty of crockery, cutlery and glassware to keep you going. Just ask if there's anything else you need and we will do our best to accomodate. You have a country dining table and chairs, sofas and 32 inch freeview TV with DVD player to catch up on episodes of the 'Darling Buds of May'. You have a music docking speaker too for your phone plus of course free wifi.

There will be plenty to reflect on as there is so much to do and see in the local area. Kent has so much to offer including the reindeer centre that is right next door to the Farm. The delightful old town, Tenterden, ‘The Jewel of the Weald’ is 6 miles away with its boutique shopping and the famous Kent and East Sussex steam railway to keep you busy, plus and there are the vineyards (including Biddenden Vineyards and Chapel Down) to consider. The South of England Rare Breeds Centre, gardens (including Sissinghurst) and a plethora of National Trust homes and castles await exploration. Visit the beaches at Camber Sands or sample oysters and hire bikes at Whitstable. The high speed train to London takes 38 minutes for further sightseeing opportunities, or sample lunch in Paris via the Eurostar. Altogether "Perfick!”, as the Larkins would say! Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
