Birling House Apartment, West Malling

Kent. Sleeps up to 2

For nearly 600 years the Nevill family has owned land in and around Birling - a quiet little village located in An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near the county town of Maidstone. Birling Manor, built by the Hon Rev William Nevill in the 1830's was just across the valley from Birling House - which was a home for his son. Unfortunately the Manor was destroyed by fire  in 1917 and so only Birling House now remains. A superb example of Victorian architecture - the house has been sensitively renovated by the current owners and the penthouse apartment definitely has the wow! factor. Great views across the village rooftops to the fields and woods beyond - a short stroll to the village pub and only a five minute drive to the historic market town of West Malling with plenty of good restaurants, pubs and specialist shops. Many National Trust properties and gardens are within very easy reach as is London by road or train. Shop: 1 mile  Pub: 200 yards  Coast: 13 miles
