Yew Tree Farm
Enjoy breakfast in one of the two kitchen areas, both overlooking the gardens, or enjoy dinner at the grand banquette dining table with it's very own bar - a real entertaining space. For the adults, enjoy a glass or two in the large bubbling hot tub on the patio, overlooking the surrounding countryside with sheep as your neighbours.....whilst the children enjoy the sunken trampolines and play equipment, or a game of football on the lawn. For those chilly winter days cosy up in front of the wood burning stove with a glass or wine or a hot chocolate... or enjoy a long relaxing soak in one of the luxury baths. Enjoy lunch on the terrace on a sunny day with dappled light from the stunning Indian Bean trees in the garden.
The house has been known to hold a party or two..... the cottage on the grounds used to be a recording studio which was frequented by Bob Marley and Desmond Decker....the roof was very much raised with long evening sets at the farmhouse - if only the walls could talk...! Whatever your needs for the perfect weekend away be it fun or peace and tranquillity all this and more can be enjoyed at your very own country retreat near Ashford.
