About lilly Wilton

I love the countryside and all it has to offer but Bulltown is easily accessible to towns and villages as well, I love history, walking, tennis and my husband Julian has vintage cars and races them

lilly Wilton purchased this apartment in 1995

Why lilly Wilton chose Ashford

The studio is near our 15th century farmhouse which we have sympathically restored over the years.

What makes this apartment unique

Peacefulness, convenience and character.

Brilliantly located, rural but not isolated and handy for walking, visiting the coast and Leeds Castle. Had a great time. Cottage had everything you would need but very tall people need to consider the bathroom's apex ceiling!
