Description

The Lookers Legacy is a beautifully renovated traditional brick Lookers Hut surrounded by peaceful countryside next to a vineyard.  Lookers would use these huts as their accommodation whilst caring for their flocks.  This pet-friendly property is nestled in a tranquil spot and has been stylishly renovated into the perfect country escape for two.  The open plan living area is dominated by the double bi- folding doors which open onto a terrace with luxury hot tub and stunning far reaching views over the Romney Marsh.  The modern interior is sympathetic to the original design and has been carefully extended to let natural light flood into the rooms.  The entire property has been furnished with luxurious touches and there is a cosy wood burning stove for those chilly evenings.  The most striking feature of this property is the stunning rural location with walking from your doorstep along the footpath that runs beside the vines, easy access to the Saxon Shore Way and a footpath which will take you to the pet friendly Ferry Inn - renowned for its seasonal Rye Bay Scallops. Tenterden and historic Rye are close by as are the golden sands at Camber, perfect for exploring in all weathers.

Reviews

Lovely converted shepherds hut in a great location. Great walks and a nice pub within walking distance.

Mr C,

Great to stay at The Lookers Legacy, a much needed break in an idyllic location. Superb conversion & snug extension with everything we could need. Kent has beautiful scenery and we enjoyed using it as a base to explore the local area and would unreservedly recommend it and Winchelsea and its nearby beach as well worth a visit. Thanks also for the milk and welcome box of treats and plentiful supply of logs.

Mr N,

Beautiful property for time cut off from the rest of the world. Lovely modern features and lovely and warm (even in the stormy weather and we had). Not an enclosed garden but lots of space for the dog to run around. Good location, near to Rye which we really loved visiting (standard inn and Marino’s fish and chips are both a must). Would recommend to others

Mrs C,

Really enjoyed staying at the Lookers Legacy. A fab conversion with lots of attention to detail and in a beautiful and secluded spot.

Mr O,

Beautifuly located get away, lovely and quite. Clean property with lots of great amenities. Helpful hosts.

Miss S,

Front door lock and key situation has potential for problems if you happen to close front door and leave key inside. 'Topping up' hot tub after use needs highlighting on the hot tub not at the hose tap. Also if you use hot tub say at 22:00 then you 'top it up' it was taking well over 1hr to heat/cycle and with the bed right next to hot tub was a wee bit noisy. Lesson learned was don't use hot tub after 20:30 but when on holiday it is nice to sit in hot tub and look up at the stars when one desires.

Mr Michael H,

Perfect for a secluded getaway. Lovely pub, The Ferry, just walking distance away. And a night sky to die for.

Miss S,

Perfect get-away for a couple looking for peace and quiet. The property is small but has been well thought out and fitted out to a very high standard. The living room has folding patio doors on two sides opening out onto the surrounding vineyards. The property owners are very helpful and friendly. Please note that here is no washing machine so be sure to pack enough clothes! For the taller ones amongst you beware of the low doorframes! There are many pubs serving tasty food in the area and it is only a short drive to the port of Rye. It all made for a very relaxing stay and I would happily recommend this property.

Mr J,
