Finchcocks Oast 1-22 Description

Finchcocks Oast is a stunning large holiday house in a spectacular position located next to the well-known Finchcocks Music Museum, and surrounded by the rolling Kentish countryside of the Weald of Kent. The Oast is spacious and light with wonderfully adaptable accommodation planned over two floors, offering many of the luxuries and comforts you could wish for.

The beautiful and large kitchen will make catering easy with a hotel standard dishwasher, 4 ovens and many other kitchen aids. The large dining table can be added to by either of two other large dining tables, allowing everyone in your group to be seated together and enjoy that special dinner. Should you wish to have caterers, please let us know and we will provide you with some recommended local options.

The large living space on the first floor has several seating areas and leads onto a wonderful balcony area to extend your celebrations out into the lovely Kent countryside that surrounds The Oast.

The owners have really thought of everything with light airy spaces, wonderfully spacious bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities and stunning lighting and furniture to complete the scene.

A striking feature of Finchcocks Oast, is the unusual (in number) set of six eye-catching white 'cowls' that dominate the property. These were originally used to help dry the hops after they were brought in from the fields, and are a very typical feature of the Kent countryside. Now, with the cowls still able to turn in the wind, they provide they have been opened up internally to emphasise the soaring heights of the building, with stunning contemporary lighting used to emphasise their interesting and quirky shape.

All-in-all, Finchcocks Oast provides a spectacular holiday home with seating areas both up and down stairs and superb far-reaching views across the surrounding countryside. There is a heated swimming pool and a tennis court, so, with so much to see and do right on your doorstep, you should hardly need your car at all!

Local Information about Goudhurst, Kent

Finchcocks Oast is located on the outskirts of Goudhurst, one of the prettiest villages in the Weald of Kent, with charming period cottages overlooking a village pond with a fountain and friendly ducks. The winding village high street leads up to St Mary's Church which dates back to the 12th century and Henry I, and overlooks antique shops, tearooms, restaurants and pubs.

The village is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside with The Oast situated down in the valley, a little less than 2 miles away and next to Finchcocks, a fine Georgian manor house, now well known as a Music Museum and where it is even possible to play some of the beautiful antique instruments. The white cowls of Finchcocks Oast and the Music Museum are clearly visible in the distance as you head downhill out of Goudhurst. There is also a renowned gastro pub within walking distance of The Oast.

This area of Kent is renowned for its vineyards, several of which are open to the public for tours and visits, and even the odd tasting as well. The beautiful Georgian Spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is just 10 miles away with its stunning architecture, excellent shopping centre and of course you can take in the health-giving spring water that the town is renowned for.

There are many things to do in the area from visiting the National Trust's fairytale castle at nearby Scotney Castle or the wonderful gardens of Sissinghurst Castle, to exploring nearby Bedgebury Pinetum, with its extensive walks, visitor centre and world renowned conifer collection.

The Oast house was amazing and everyone was so impressed!

We had another great week at the Oast and would love to come back again next year if you’d be happy to accept the same group (as far as we know) returning on similar terms.

We had a fantastic weekend. The Oast house is stunning. We had seen the George Clarke programmed on television so it was great to see the real thing. We had a surprise party for my husband who is still overwhelmed by the whole thing.

July 2012
A great place to stay! We were a group of four families together for the Jubilee weekend and were the first guests to stay in this beautiful spacious property and it was amazing. It has been done out to a very high standard. The beds are so comfortable with lovely bedding, relaxing furniture in the living areas and a very well equipped kitchen. The entertainment facilities are great - the pool, the table tennis table (great for wet weather), sky TV, tennis court - all helped to entertain the children while the adults relaxed on the lovely decking. An abundance of leaflets on what to do in the area was greatly appreciated. We all concluded that this was the best place we have ever stayed in over the many years of holidaying together. It's not easy to find a place big enough for four families.
