Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in Aldington - Vernham Dean Studio

Self-catering, access to woodland garden, 5 miles to sandy beach

Luxury self-catering studio apartment, situated over the double garage, which sleeps two. Large living area with shower room and kitchenette. Double doors out on to south facing balcony. Studio is bright with views over large garden and wood. A small covered heated swimming pool is available for use at guest's discretion between March and October and a hot tub is available all year round. These are shared with us the family. There are 4 acres of woodland to explore. Wake each morning to the beautiful sound of bird song from the many varieties of birds in the wood. Shower room has plenty of storage space and corner shower . Kitchenette has 2 burner hob, grill/microwave, toaster, fridge with small freezer space, toaster and kettle. Full linen is supplied and changed weekly. 3 seat leather sofa is very comfortable both as a sofa and a bed, Separate storage for duvet. A double bed has been added and there is a gate legged table and 2 dining chairs catering for meals. Entrance via one flight of external stairs. Wireless Internet connection.

Swimming Pool: A heated swimming pool is available from about April to November, it is heated to about 80degrees and is covered except in prolonged sunny periods. Swimmers swim at their own risk and it is requested that people do not swim alone.

Woodland: The house is surrounded by a wood which is accessible to guests. However we do not own the whole wood and you are asked to respect our neighbours. There is a vast array of wild life, from squirrels to badgers, from blue tits to jays. You are welcome to walk or just sit and watch. Several small streams criss cross the wood but these are easily crossed and provide more entertainment from the wild life.

Eating Out: There are two Pubs in the village which both have restaurants serving typical English fayre. Most local villages have their own pubs which do meals. Our village also has a bakers/butchers and Post Office/village store. The nearest supermarket is Tesco 6 miles away.

Why Patricia and Michael Jupp chose Kent

We built our house in 1998 and added the garage with studio over in 2007. The house is set in 4 acres of woodland which is always changing through the seasons. We are in an area of outstanding natural beauty which is why we love the area.

What makes this apartment unique

Our swimming pool is great during the spring summer and autumn and we added a hot tub in February 2013 which will be available to guests throughout the year. A great way to unwind after a day of sightseeing or just to relax any time.

A perfect base for exploring Kent

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely 4 days exploring the southeast corner of England, and the apartment was a perfect base to come home to in the eventngs. It's spotlessly clean and has all the comforts of home, including a very well-equipped kitchen. Patricia and Michael were friendly and unfailingly helpful but never intrusive. I did not make it into the pool or the hot tub this trip, but both looked very inviting. Maybe next time!

We are on the edge of Romney Marsh with its RSPB bird sanctuary. Port Lympne Zoo is 4 miles away with their famous giraffes and gorillas as seen on TV. Good shopping at Ashford Shopping Outlet, Canterbury and the County town of Maidstone on the River Medway. For train enthusiasts there is the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch railway and the East Kent Railway, both run trains throughout the year. Dover, Walmer and Deal castles are all within an easy drive and are run by English Heritage and for walkers we are on the Saxon Shoreline with amazing views over Romney Marsh. Canterbury Cathedral is a 30 minute drive and Rochester Cathedral is 40 minutes. Our local sandy beach is Dymchurch which is 5 miles away across the Marsh, or Hythe is pebbles and 10 miles away. The port of Dover or the Channel Tunnel gives access to France and a day trip is easy to arrange or you might like to take Eurostar from Ashford International and a day trip to Paris, Brussels of Lille.
