Silver Cottage was a tumble-down Silver Smith's workshop and horse stable dating from the early 1800s. It has had a total renovation and is now the ideal location for a peaceful retreat. It is situated at the end of a private lane that leads into open countryside between the hamlet of Hunton and Yalding village. It is silent at night with only the odd tractor during the warm summer days. Yet the village of Yalding has excellent pubs, a restaurant, a cafe (for great coffee), monthly Farmers' Market, the excellent Yalding Organic Gardens, a village shop, post office, access to the river Medway (fishing, canoeing etc) and many historic buildings and features.
It is a glorious walk to Yalding in 20-30 minutes or a 5 minute drive.
On entering the front door of Silver Cottage there is a cloakroom to the right with a large walk-in shower. The next room is a twin bedroom with plenty of built-in storage. The rest of the ground floor is taken up by the kitchen / diner and sitting room. The kitchen is large and has a dishwasher, washing machine and fridge. The dining table seats six and there are two sofas, a TV, stereo and a fabulous wood-burning stove. Under-floor heating is fitted throughout the ground floor. The main bedroom is upstairs and has a generous en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath.
The cottage has its own private garden and terrace, use of the adjoining field, private parking, use of the owners' tennis court and large barbecue.
The cottage would suit a family looking for a quiet, rural, summer holiday or those looking for a cosy winter break, snuggled inside with the wood-burning stove. The building has been insulated with modern products and holds the heat in winter and is cool in the summer.
