Located in the heart of the East Sussex countryside with beautiful rural views, this property is within easy reach of the local pub. The carriage enjoys a beautiful and timeless view across to historic Bodiam Castle, which is managed by the National Trust and is well worth a visit. Hop on the nearby Kent and East Sussex railway and take a visit to the market town of Tenterden with its tree lined high street, and wide range of independent shops, restaurants and cafes. For keen walkers, there are ample local footpaths surrounding the property which are perfect to explore the surrounding areas and enjoy unspoilt views. 5 minutes stroll within the grounds of Quarry Farm, there is also a café and farm shop, "The Hub" offering Wi-Fi, water sports, a beauty salon and many other facilities.

The carriage is accessed by a wooden ramp into a small entrance hall with a cloakroom with WC. Enter into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a warm and cosy area in which to unwind after a long stroll in the countryside, with a wood burner, comfy sofa, armchair and TV/DVD, and a small dining table with seating for two. The compact but well-appointed kitchen contains a gas oven and hob, microwave and a fridge/freezer. The double bedroom is located at the other end of the cabin through a sliding door and features a double bed with a small basin, and en-suite shower.

Outside, there is a covered veranda to relax with a large wooden table, sofa and two built in benches. It is a great space for entertaining. There is also a lawn area for enjoying a spot of croquet and to the rear of the property is an unfenced pond. There is ample off-road parking next to the property.

We stayed at The Lady Stella in Bodiam for our 5th Wedding anniversary. We were very happy with the accommodation and our little dog loved having so much space for walks. The location is great with Hastings and lots of other places easily reachable. We would highly recommend this holiday and will most likely book again.

location was perfect. Local shops are at least 2/3 miles away if you need any bits. Fridge was perfect size and freezer is small but totally adequate for the stay. The farm is beautiful with lots of lovely walks around and other lovely places all within 30 minute drive. Very peaceful place to be

Loved the quirky caravan, in particular the veranda. The site is fab, with The Hub offering delicious food & drink. Issues with hot water while we were there & kitchen had odd assortment of equipment with nothing written on cooker; presumably rubbed off with age. Overall we had a fab time but some minor issues.

If you want a quiet, relaxing holiday Quarry Farm is perfect. The Hub Cafe on site serves great food. The Lady Stella is clean and very comfortable. I went with two dogs but left early because I had not realised there was a six foot drop from the verandah. The fence around it has no chicken wire / netting on it, so one of my dogs tried to jump fromRead more under it. We left early. Would love to go back, but only if the verandahs on Quarry Farm are made safe for small dogs. I hope this can be adressed. Hide

Very comfortable however the kettle on a gas hob was extremely hot to handle when boiled as was the whistle on the spout. We felt the betting could do with upgrading. The veranda was excellent and very safe for quests with dogs
