Scrag Oak Oast description

This stunning Grade ll listed oast is unique to the Kent and Sussex countryside, in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This delightful holiday property offers a plethora of beams and an abundance of character, with glorious views across the rolling countryside, particularly from the first floor living space. Originally used to dry hops grown locally, which were then sent to the brewer’s to be used for flavouring beers. Sadly, the twin roundels and the cowl at the top of the kiln has long since disappeared, but the main part of the barn, which was used for the actual storing of hops prior to drying, still has an oak winch in the living area as a reminder of its working past. Situated adjacent to the owner’s 16th-century house built by a Wealden ironmaster, on a delightful, rural, single track lane, guests can access the orchard, tennis court and owner’s paddocks which slope down to the stream at the bottom of the valley. Wadhurst village is close by, and Royal Tunbridge Wells is 7 miles. Bewl Water offers cycle hire, fishing and boating activities. Visit Bateman’s, Rudyard Kipling’s family home (NT), Bodiam Castle (NT), and the beautiful gardens at Scotney Castle and Pashley Manor, or simply enjoy the many walks through the beautiful Sussex countryside directly from the property. Take the opportunity to explore the award-winning English vineyards in the area and sample some superb wines.
