Penshurst cottage description

This dainty 1890s Lodge is situated in private grounds (with off road parking) minutes outside the traditional historic English villages of Westerham & Brasted, home to Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965) & King Henry VIII (1491-1547). The Lodge is immediately beside Westerham Golf Club (see picture) with great road access to airports & fast rail service to London.
Completely renovated to a very high specification, the property boasts period features including high ceilings & moulded cornices giving the dwelling a very modern yet homely feel. The Lodge is situated beside the A25 with beautiful views over looking hills, farm & park land known as 'The Garden of England Countryside'.
The Lodge has two double bedrooms & a single bedroom or 2nd reception with additional double sofa bed . Modern kitchen, including all appliances & granite worktops. Both reception rooms have real flame fires. Natural beech wood floors to hall & kitchen. Carpets to all bedrooms & reception rooms. Travertine bathroom.

WESTERHAM is on the boarder cross roads of KENT, SURREY & LONDON & is a lively, charming, historic village attracting Londoners who wish to get away from their LONDON business to an idealic location that offers everything needed to make your stay memorable.

The area has excellent road & rail transport links offering easy access to Central London & all the surrounding areas, numerous English Heritage & National Trust Historic tourist attractions, numerous restaurants (Chinese, Indian, Italian, French, English, Malaysian, to suggest just a few) & many bars/ pubs who also offer great food. The town also has a range of local leisure facilities, and most are within minutes from the Lodge.

BRASTED LODGE location makes it great for both visiting stately homes/gardens and LONDON with non stop fast train services, examples being:
LONDON BRIDGE from SEVENOAKS - 27 minutes (every 18 minutes, approx)
LONDON VICTORIA from BROMLEY SOUTH - 17 minutes (every 8 minutes approx)
Both stations offer good parking facilities making the Lodge a great place to stay when travelling to LONDON (all time tables to be checked by guests).
Car to Bromley South takes about 25 minutes, Sevenoaks 15 minutes & LONDON about 50 minutes (not advisable as the Capital has congestion zone travel charges plus high parking fees).

Westerham GOLF COURSE immediately neighbours the Lodge and guests are welcome to attend their bar or restaurant even if it's just to take in the outstanding views and stay for coffee. The area is fantastic for walkers who love the countryside. Rabbits, badgers and deer frequently visit our gardens and make the views even more delightful.
