Step back in time and enjoy a stay at Larkin Cart. Aptly named, this Cart Lodge is set within a courtyard of buildings on Darling Buds Farm, which featured as the home of Ma and Pop Larkin (Pam Ferris and David Jason) in The Darling Buds of May ITV series*. Its simple lifestyle, set in the 1950s, showcased the beautiful Kent countryside, and the location became internationally famous as a result.
This well appointed farm has been awarded the AA’s ultimate commendation, 5 Gold Stars/’Highly Commended’ and is surrounded by beautiful open Kent countryside. The beauty spot is located near the villages of Bethersden and Pluckley, about six miles from Ashford.
Larkin Cart, sleeping four, is a delightful two bedroom property providing stunning ground floor accommodation for smaller groups and families. Stylishly converted, it benefits from an open plan beamed living space, comprising a sitting/dining and kitchen area. At either end of the Cart Lodge are two double bedrooms, both en suite, which can be configured as double or twin rooms to suit your party.
Outside there is grassed area with picnic table and barbecue beside a stream, ideal for alfresco dining.
Ground floor accommodation:
Open plan living space comprising sitting, dining and kitchen areas with wooden beamed vaulted ceiling.
The sitting area has a TV and a two and three seater sofa. There is a country dining table and chairs and a well-equipped farmhouse-style kitchen area.
Two double/twin bedrooms with 5′ zip and link beds (both can be configured as either twin beds or doubles). Each bedroom has its own en suite shower room.
