Description

Hattie the Horse Box offers a unique experiential self-catering experience in a lovely semi-rural location.  Hattie is a converted vintage horse box with its own en-suite shower room, galley kitchen and a lay-z-spa hot tub. Set in the owner's 13 acres with great views across their fields, fresh eggs from the obliging chickens and within an easy walk to the small parade of shops and pubs in Hawkhurst, this really is the best glamping experience you can have!  Hattie has been designed with great flair and attention to detail ensuring that you have everything you need for a relaxing escape to the country. There is a comfortable sofa with a DVD player and mini TV for watching DVDs, an electric wood-effect stove and a well equipped kitchen. The cosy double bed is tucked up into the framework with four portholes and it boasts its own shower room. Double French door open onto a courtyard area with far reaching views, which can also be enjoyed from the hot tub.  As an alternative, why not snuggle up in the open fronted field shed next door and relax and unwind under the stars.   Shop: 0.4 miles  Pub: 0.4 miles  Coast: 18 miles

Hattie was a comfy well thought out little horse box with everything you needed. We were pleasantly surprised at how spacious she was and the bed was so comfortable. The view out was stunning and the owner was so lovely and accommodating, we loved it so much we are planning to return next year. Was the perfect peaceful break we needed.

Fab horse box, felt like luxury inside and extra bonus were the animals on site, cats dogs and horses. The cats in particular made our trip :-)

Miss R,

Hattie the horse box is a lovely quaint property, perfect for couples wanting a quiet & relaxing break. The hot tub is an added bonus. The village is a short walk away with plenty of amenities including a cafe, 2 supermarkets & plenty of eating establishments including 2 good pubs, Chinese takeaway & a curry restaurant. Lisa the host was very nice & helpful, recommended a couple of things to do in the area & was a phone call away if we needed anything. Really loved our stay.

Mrs P,

Lovely, relaxing break. Great location with lots to do nearby and also within walking distance to some great pubs. Hattie is so cosy, but has everything you need. The owner Lisa is a great host.

miss D,

I stayed at Hattie's for 3 nights and it was amazing. It was a short walk away from shops & pubs.The horsebox was clean & had everything we needed. The horses, hot tub & fire was the perfect extra touch. Lisa the host was very friendly & welcoming

Miss B,

From the start of booking the holiday, communication with Lisa was first class. She was able to answer all my questions and provided perfect directions to Hattie especially for someone who doesn't know the area. The property when we arrived was spotless and the location and amenities could not be faulted. Our welcome bundle was full of delicious local produce and such a personal touch and really appreciated. Lisa stopped in to check we had everything we needed when we arrived and showed us how to work the all important hot tub! She also provided us with some good suggestions on places to eat locally. Highly recommend The Great House as their pizzas are lush! Our stay was delightful and we had the most amazing weather and waking up each day to such beautiful surroundings made us never want to leave. It was also lovely getting to meet all the horses and the farm cats especially Hobbes the black cat who carried out regular checks on us. The fire pit was fab on a chilly April evening and everything was provided for this. Cannot recommend highly enough and cannot wait to return!!
