  • "This was a beautiful place, very comfortable, it was serene and we came home so relaxed."

    The owner and staff made sure we were happy with our accommodation and nothing was too much trouble. First class place

  • "The cottage is lovely, cosy, quiet (went in March) and very relaxing."

    The bed is enormous and delightful to get yourself lost in. The kitchen equipment is fine - just read the welcome guide before you use the induction hob! Hot-tub is wonderful - but don't expect it to be very hot and keep an eye on the fire as it needs some looking after, but once you're up and running its fab. It's very peaceful and just what we needed!

Tucked away in a secluded spot on the grounds of the award-winning Bloomsbury in Biddenden glamping site, amidst the rural countryside of Kent, rests this idyllic single-storey holiday home, Wild Rose Retreat.

A wonderfully romantic retreat, ideal for couples seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Wild Rose Retreat offers a sociable, open-plan layout, a private wood-fired hot tub and a wealth of on-site facilities.

Discover this lovely abode, tucked away amongst the trees to ensure peace and relaxation during your staycation, and make your way over the threshold and into the open-plan living space of your new home-from-home.

Marvel at the bright interior, thoughtfully laid out with an effortless blend of traditional and contemporary, with whitewashed wooden décor and high-quality fixtures and fittings.

Look forward to snuggling up with your better half on the sumptuous corner sofa, recounting the day's adventures as the Sonos speaker fills the space with your favourite soundtrack, or indulging in a blissful soak in the wood-fired hot tub at the end of another day of adventure.

When stomachs start to rumble, you'll find a handful of helpful amenities in the kitchen to assist with rustling up a romantic meal for two that can be enjoyed over candlelight at the nearby dining table.

Moving through this wonderful abode, discover the well-presented super-king-size bedroom, benefiting from an en-suite bathroom, equipped with an elegant roll-top bath and handheld shower attachment, so you can decide on how best to ready yourself for bed, whilst French doors open out onto a secluded patio, ideal for an evening tipple under the stars.

Get better acquainted with your idyllic surroundings, whether that's strolling through the rural greenery of Bloomsbury, hiring an electric bike and embarking on a two-wheeled adventure, treating yourself to a blow dry or a beauty treatment, working up a sweat with a yoga, pole or Pilates class, or simply taking a break from the kitchen and dining at the on-site restaurant for a spot of breakfast, lunch or luxurious afternoon tea.

Bloomsburys is located on the outskirts of Biddenden village; it is a lovely stroll from the site into the village, where you can discover the local pub of The Red Lion, the Bakehouse café for tasty brunches, and The West House, a fine dining restaurant owned and operated by Graham Garratt.

You're also close to the renowned Three Chimneys pub, which serves delectable food and local ales.

You'll also find an amply-stocked village shop and post office here, where you can get your necessities.

From Bloomsburys, there are lovely circular hikes over wide farmland and magnificent woodlands; more sports activities can be enjoyed  Squash and Tennis Club which is also located in the village.

Sissinghurst Castle & Gardens is a short drive from the Wild Rose; alternatively, a decent walk from the Wild Rose will lead you to the famed, family-run Biddenden Vineyards, where visits, tastings, and trips to the on-site shop may be enjoyed.

Hush Heath Vineyards and Chapel Down are two additional well-known local vineyards that are worth visiting; Sedlescombe BioDynamic Vineyards, a little farther away, offers tours, sampling, lunch, and afternoon tea.

There are many golf courses in the region, the closest of which is the London Beach Hotel in St Michaels along Chart Hills in Biddenden; if angling is more your style, there are numerous nearby fishing lakes, such as Green Acres, Cackle Hill, and Hawhurst Fishing Lakes.

Why not try horseback riding at Sissinghurst's Apple Tree Stables or Bedgebury Forest's Bedgebury Forest?

The Bedgebury Pinetum is not only a lovely place to go horseback riding, but it's also a fascinating local attraction that dates back to Victorian times and is now home to Go Ape.

Leeds Castle, which also has a Go Ape and Segway excursions, is another great place to visit.

You're close to Ashford, which has a designer outlet where you can indulge in some retail therapy while perusing discounts from a variety of well-known high-street brands.

A short drive away is the community of Headcorn, which has a supermarket and access to a major line train station from which trains to London's Charing Cross run frequently.

Tenterden, a port town nearby, has a lovely high street with antique stores, two supermarkets, cafés and restaurants, as well as a leisure club with an indoor pool and gym.

Rye is a wonderful town nearby that is certainly worth a visit; here you will discover the pleasures of Camber Sands and Dungeness, from which you can windsurf and kite surf, before uncovering the town's many historic structures, cobblestoned streets, and underground passageways that date back to the days of pirates and smugglers; don't forget to pay a visit to Kino, an independent cinema!

The town of Hastings' Pier, Old Town, music scene, theatre, and picture house are all fantastic places to visit for sightseeing.

You can also visit Cranbrook for further sightseeing, which features a charming main street with boutique stores, a windmill, and a museum.

Whisk your significant other away on a romantic escape like no other with a stay at Wild Rose Retreat.
