Priest's House is a beautiful detached brick building which is believed to be part of the former Elizabethan mansion which made up Sissinghurst Castle. The cottage sits on the edge of the White Garden and is an absolute must-stay for garden lovers. Many original features remain including mullion and leaded windows, inglenook fireplace, wooden beams and brick flooring. It has fantastic views of the formal gardens. The property has been transformed into luxury accommodation and its furnishings reflect the location the house sits in. The windows in many of the rooms have incredible views of the beautiful Kentish countryside, as well as the White Garden, which was designed to be seen in the moonlight. This is also an excellent base for exploring Kent's historic market towns and coast.
Parking: From January 2016 guests can unload/load outside the cottage, thereafter they will need to park at the rear of the restaurant in two designated spaces. For further parking guests can use the visitor's car park.
Garden: Anyone staying from now until 31st December 2016 will have use of the paved courtyard only, from 1st January 2017 there will be no private garden but exclusive out of hours access to the main gardens including the White Garden remains.
You could think it may be densely populated and just home to the bustling metropolis of London, but don't underestimate the South East's capacity for hidden charms, secluded landscapes and shady nooks to catch your breath. There's lots to explore from the hazy meadows and pastoral valleys of the South Downs, the dazzling White Cliffs of Dover and the glorious gardens at Sissinghurst and Polesden Lacey.
