Watch the stars from the wood fired hot tub while your bbq sizzles over the fire bowl. Listen to the owls, watch bats swoop, walk through stunning woodland and meadows, play croquet, or lie in the hammock to read.

This is a working pump house in the grounds of a Kentish farmhouse in the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The comfortable king bed is high up on a mezzanine floor (reached by ladder), in a charming sitting room with wood burning stove.

Le logement
The Pump House is simple accommodation, a cosy shed in a wild woodland garden. The main space is a single room with woodburning stove, simply furnished with a comfortable bed on a platform above the PumpHouse, accessed by a ladder. Outside is a firebowl, wood fired hot tub fed with fresh water straight from the borehole next to the Pump House, dining area and chairs.

A second bed, a camp bed suitable for a child, can be made up on the ground floor in the Pump House. Additional space, suitable for two adults or more, may be available in our shepherds huts or bell tents next to the Pump House, but please check before booking.

It’s really all about being outside in the wild English garden, chilling out by the pond, star watching from the hot tub, and walking in the beautiful and extensive protected landscapes that surround the property. The Hook and Hatchet pub is less than 15 minutes walk away, and the Woodland Trust manages hundreds of acres of outstanding natural beauty, woodlands and meadows next to the property. Many native plants and animals including owls, buzzards, badgers, bats, woodpeckers, butterflies, slow worms, and much more are regularly seen. We will give you maps to a number of great walks, including a variety of circular walks that take in a pub (or two) on the way. If it’s a beautiful day sitting in your private garden can be blissfully peaceful, if it’s chillier stay cosy inside next to the wood burning stove.

There is a wood fired cedar hot tub right next to the Pump House, set up for the exclusive use of Pump House guests. No chemicals are used, pure fresh clean water is used for every booking. It takes almost 2000 litres of water and two to three hours to fill up, and can use over 6 bags of wood and a further three or four hours to bring it to a suitable temperature. We are very happy to fill and start to heat the tub before you get here, for which a £30 cash fee is payable on arrival. Otherwise we will clean and fill the tub and give you instructions on how to manage it yourselves.

We are installing a dry toilet, simple washing facilities and an outside kitchen to make social isolation at this venue a possibility from the beginning of July 2020. The shared indoor kitchen and bathroom will also remain available for your use, as you wish.

This is a “digital detox” area - mobile signal can be poor, depending on your provider, and Wi-fi signal is only available in the main house.

The track to the property is an unmade road, it may be slippery or rough during or after rain, please take care.

Accès des voyageurs
Shared kitchen and bathroom facilities are in a separate building, just 30m away.

Wifi and phone signal in the PumpHouse is poor to non-existent.

The hot tub is generally only available to guests staying for at least two nights.

Autres points à prendre en note
The bed is high, and reached via ladder. It will not be suitable if you have vertigo, are unsteady on your feet or have any mobility issues, or for young children.

This is a working pump house. The sound of the pump is an audible hum which turns on and off on demand, though not loud it can be heard from the mezzanine bed.

Bathroom and kitchen facilities are shared facilities, situated less than 30m away.

There is a one-off charge of £30 for getting the hot tub clean filled and ready for your arrival. Please let us know if you would like this, and of the expected time of your arrival. It takes some time, and although we will do our best to be ready in time, the tub may still be heating as you arrive.

Firewood for outdoor firebowls, the wood burning stove inside the hut or re-heating the hot tub (you might want to give it a boost after a day of cooling down) is not included. You can bring your own supplies of dry seasoned fire wood, or you can purchase from us in £5 or £8 bags. We can also sell you supplies of firelighters, matches, kindling and bbq charcoal, if required.

Please bring cash as we cannot accept cards.

Further accommodation for additional guests may be available in two shepherds huts located nearby. All have their own private area and hot tubs. Please see our other listings or ask if you’d like to find out more.

The property is in a secluded location on the North Kent Downs area of outstanding natural beauty. It is in the midst of stunning countryside, and next to the Hucking Estate, which is owned by the Woodland Trust.

It is ideal for getting away from it all, with many beautiful walks and cycle rides on the doorstep.

If you have a car, Faversham, Whitstable and Canterbury are a short drive away. Leeds Castle, Hever Castle, Sissinghurst, Ightham Mote and many other beautiful houses and gardens are highly recommended for visits.

I love living in the country, growing my own food, cooking and being with friends family, and now my guests! I have travelled a lot for my working life, and my house (and menus) are full of things and ideas that I have brought back from other places. I have mostly worked on the African continent, but also in Asia, South America and Eastern Europe. I have always enjoyed meeting new people and seeing new places. My house is full of books, and you welcome to borrow one to curl up and read by a fire, if that's what you'd like to do, or to go out and explore all that Kent (or even London, its just over an hour away, if you're not escaping it!) have to offer.
