About the property

Lovingly refurbished, 1887 Gate Keepers Lodge with 3 beds that sleeps 5

This dainty 1887 Lodge is situated in private grounds (with off road parking) sandwiched between the historic English villages of Westerham and Brasted, home to Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965) and King Henry VIII (1491-1547 Hever Castle). The Lodge backs onto Westerham Golf Club (see photos) and enjoys picturesque Park Land and country views. Public transport offers Motorway first class road access to airports with numerous fast rail services to London, which are used daily by commuters.

Completely renovated in 1995 to a very high specification, Brasted Lodge retains period features including an original fire place, high ceilings and moulded cornices. Modernisation offers up to date services whilst keeping the homely traditional feel.

The Lodge is situated beside the A25 with beautiful views over looking hills, farm and park land, known as The Garden of England.

The Lodge has two double bedrooms and a third room which can either be used as a single bedroom or 2nd reception. Modern kitchen, including all appliances (integrated fridge/freezer, gas oven, gas hob, dishwasher, washing machine and BT Broadband high speed WiFi with two Smart TVs offering internet and catch up TV. Both Lounge and single bedroom have DVD players. Blue Pearl Granite Worktops with a breakfast bar for three. Both reception rooms have real flame fires (one wood or coal burning and the other gas operated). Natural beech wood floors are fitted to the hall and kitchen with fitted carpets to all bedrooms and reception rooms. Travertine is fitted to the en-suite bathroom with ceramic tiles to the Cloakroom and rear entrance lobby.

WESTERHAM is on the boarder cross roads of KENT, SURREY, LONDON and 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 and rail transport links offering easy access to Central London and all the surrounding areas, numerous English Heritage and National Trust Historic tourist attractions, numerous restaurants (Chinese, Indian, Italian, French, English, Malaysian, Pizza to suggest just a few) and 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)

Ease to transport makes 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 and 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 the surrounding parkland and gardens, making the views even more delightful.

Leave M25 Junction 6 and under motorway turn left (you go under motorway). Travel south on A22 for one mile to roundabout at junction with A25. Turn left onto A25 and proceed through Oxted to Westerham. Continue on the A25 through Westerham village and the Lodge/Golf course entrance is on the right approximately half a mile out of Westerham going east in the direction of Brasted (Sevenoaks). Enter the grounds via the Valence School/Golf Course access road located on the right side of the A25.

ACCESS from EAST using M25, approximately 10 minutes to Lodge

Leave M25 at junction 5 onto A21 and exit onto second slip road (A25) signposted to Westerham. The entrance to the Lodge and Golf course is about half a mile out of the village of Brasted, on the left, about half a mile before you get to Westerham Village.

At the crossroads (located just before gates which lead to the Golf Course) turn left back toward the A25.

HISTORY reference to Capability Lancelot Brown landscaped gardens, can be found at http://www.parksandgardens.org/places-and-people/site/3355/summary

The land surrounding Brasted Lodge is parkland, water and woodland garden, first developed in the mid 1700 and later landscaped by Lancelot Brown in the late C18; further developments were undertaken by Edward Milner in the mid-C19 and by Henry Ernest Milner in the late C19, surrounding a late Victorian Mansion (Valence School for disabled children - please note we never see any children as all are transported).

The earliest references to the estate itself may be found in the Westerham church records of 1583.

The Lodge was owned originally by Norman Watney (owner of Watney Ale, very well known in the war years). Watney appointed Architect Frederick J. Robinson to rebuild a new Mansion (Valence School) and four Lodge houses, one of which is Brasted Lodge. This was done as Watney saw better opportunities as the old Mansion was not ideally located (on the inner crossroads to Brasted Lodge, Westerham Golf Club and Fountains Cottages - now demolished). This offered Watney magnificent views of the North Downs. Although demolition of the original Mansion resulted, the Stable block with the Avenue of Lime trees (leading from the A25 to the original mansion) and Ice House still remained to this day. Unfortunately fire destroyed the disused stable block so in 2011 this was redeveloped into Fountains Park. The Stable Block (known as Fountains Cottages and used by the Valence School Staff for living accommodation), was demolished after fire destroyed the L shaped building. This mainly came about as KCC vacated some eight or nine years previously, allowing the building to fall into diss-repair which gave opportunity for development in 2013 of Fountains Park, five detached dwellings on the original Mansions Stable footprint. This also allowed the Developer opportunity to plant low level laurels boundering the site.

Valence School is a red-brick Tudor Elizabethan Revival style mansion, with two towers, stone and tile dressing, half timbered gables and a Cumberland slate roof. This and Brasted Lodge was built between 1885-87 by local Brasted builders, R. Durtnell & Sons Ltd. Valence School stands on a spur of high ground at c125 metres surrounded by areas of steeply-sloping parkland and woodland.

By 1890, Dunsdale and Valence estates became the property of Watney brewery director, Norman Watney. Dunsdale mansion became tenanted and during the First World War it was used by the Red Cross as a hospital to nurse the war-wounded.

In 1987, Valence Wood was severely depleted by the ravaging October storm. The opportunity was taken to fashion a golf course covering the area of Valence Wood, and the adjacent parkland to the north and north-east. This opened as a privately-owned golf club in 1997.

About Mr. Robert Mitchell

Owner runs Architectural and Building Management Company, which is reflected in the interior design and attention to detail of the Lodge

Mr. Robert Mitchell purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Mr. Robert Mitchell chose England

Built 1885 - 1887 as Gate keepers house to Valence Mansion for Norman Watney owner of Brewery, Brasted Lodge was fully refurbished in 1995 to incorporate all up to date mains services (gas, water power) whilst retaining and preserving all character of original Victorian charm.

The surrounding grounds around the Lodge are known as Valence. This features 18th-century landscaped lakes, ponds and gardens designed by Lancelot Capability Brown. The site is now a school for disabled children who attend by minibus.

Brief history of site

The estate of Valence is listed in the first draft of the Domesday Book (1086). The site was first developed in the mid-18th century, with later landscaping by Lancelot Capability Brown in the late-18th century. Further developments were undertaken by Edward Milner in the mid-19th century and by Henry Ernest Milner in the late-19th century.

Cosy haven in lovely Kent

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this snug lodge for 7 nights. Fitting 5 adults nicely with extra space. It was the loveliest abode for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.. a real gem. We were lucky to have a perfect blend of sunshine and rain to give us that perfect sense of the end of summer.

We arrived somewhat towards the later evening, so we didn't get to see the beauty of the lodge and the surroundings till the next morning. Getting there wasn't difficult at all. Just key in 'Brasted Lodge, Westerham' on the GPS and voila, your there without a fuss from the airport. Rob accommodated us with easy access, all prearranged. The lodge was all nicely warmed up for our arrival.. great heating system throughout the home. Hot water was running all day long and the kitchen was just splendid. Everything supplied leaving us wanting for nothing more. We enjoyed cooking daily!

The bedrooms were clean and neat. Ample space for wardrobe and bags. Big comfy beds with plenty of pillows. I especially loved the dining area.. felt so like home. Didn't get homesick at all! The entertainment system was working well, though might i suggest an upgrade of the DVD player. One that can plug in USBs for extra movies/Photos to be played on. Otherwise, the TV was perfectly fine.

The exterior boasts a scenic view of lush greenery and a quaint little koi pond with the most eager looking kois I've ever met! Flowers were wilting due to the end of season but i reckoned it would have flourished magnificently in spring. We enjoyed tea and occasionally lunch at the patio overlooking the koi pond.. complete bliss to bask in the sun whilst enjoying the tranquility of the surroundings. Just the perfect remedy for our tired and worn out souls..

We definitely had an enjoyable and memorable stay! I would definitely recommend this establishment for others finding their way into Kent and would easily rent it again the next time i come around.. 5 stars!

Spacious property in the middle of Kent

  • 5 of 5

Robert was a very gracious and friendly host. The lodge is close to all the places we wished to see in Kent. London is only a thirty minute train ride away. The lodge is comfortable and quiet. The kitchen is spacious and had everything we needed during our week long stay. If we come back to Kent we would not hesitate to use the lodge.

Very positive experience!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were originally booked to stay at the Brasted Lodge next October but had to cancel because our plans had changed. I am writing in because I was very happy with how Mr. Robert Mitchell handled things throughout the entire process. Our deposit was refunded immediately.

Hopefully one day it will work out where we can stay there! Thanks again Robert!

ANOTHER OUTSTANDING STAY AT BRASTED

This was our 9th stay at Brasted Lodge. Again, another excellent and relaxing time. The owner, Mr. Mitchell, is always an outstanding host and part of the charm of the property.

See you next year Robert! We can't wait to enjoy our home away in the UK.

Incredible house and great location for Kent and Surrey

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house! Beautifully decorated and updated. Very clean throughout and wonderful modern bathrooms. Great, modern and fully equipped kitchen. We were very comfortable throughout our stay with everything we needed; fast wifi with great TV and audio setup. Off street parking accessible from the drive past the golf course! Yes, the lodge is on the A25 but it didn't interfere with our enjoyment of the stay. Wonderful back garden, complete with fish in the pond! Robert was very responsive to any of our questions and easy to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure to have you stay and we hope someday to repeat our hospitality. Stay well & happy until we meet again which we hope we may repeat someday as the surrounding area has so much to enjoy - far too much to see in just a short stay.
