The Ultimate Royal Retreat

The Ultimate Royal Retreat is the ultimate luxurious getaway for guests looking to escape to the Kent countryside. Comprising two exquisitely-appointed neighbouring properties – Birnam Retreat and The Olive Grove. This retreat is the perfect place for large family and friend get-togethers.
With extensive, manicured grounds, two luxury hot tubs and pool spas and a secure children’s play area, there is plenty for guests to enjoy on site. However, it’s also the perfect base from which to explore the nearby countryside, historic sites and cities, and miles of beautiful beaches.
Being single-storey dwellings with extra wide doors and oodles of space, both properties are fully accessible to wheelchair users.

With plenty of space inside and out, there’s enough room for everyone, and there’s also plenty of space to escape to if you need a quiet moment or two.

Whether you’re looking to recharge your batteries, reconnect with loved ones or celebrate a special occasion, we look forward to hosting you!

Birnam Retreat

Upon entering the property, you’ll walk into a large porch and then through to the lounge of the open plan kitchen, dining and living area. This is a terrific, large space.

There’s an L-shaped sofa and chaise longue, which are perfect to relax and catch up on. There’s also a Smart TV to keep up with all your favourite shows. The bespoke kitchen has everything you’ll need for your self-catering stay in the South East. There’s also a breakfast bar with stools for a few folks to sit and chat. Meanwhile the dining area is the ideal space for all guests to eat together, with a large dining table – ideal for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or your favourite card and board games.

Fitness enthusiasts can keep up with their training in the gym, which can be accessed directly from the lounge area. It’s a light room, which overlooks the gorgeous gardens. You can enjoy the view from the seat of the exercise bike (or the treadmill or rowing machine)!

Birnam Retreat has five bedrooms and three bathrooms. Bedroom 1 has a super king-size bed and an en-suite shower room. Bedroom 2 has two super king-size beds and shares a bathroom with bedroom 3, which has a king-size bed.

The Olive Grove

You’ll walk through the front door straight into the open plan living room/dining room and kitchen. It’s beautifully decorated with tiled floors and lots of space for everyone to gather.

There’s a sleek, modern kitchen with every mod con, a large dining table that comfortably seats all guests, and the living space is home to a comfy, L-shaped sofa and armchair. Two sets of double glass doors lead out to the decked patio area and garden, making this a fabulous entertaining space.

The Olive Grove has three bedrooms, each with their own en-suite shower room with walk-in shower. Two of the bedrooms have super king-size beds and one has a king-size bed and twin beds.

All beds will be made up with quality Egyptian cotton bedding ahead of your arrival. Fluffy towels and toiletries will also be provided. And all rooms are tastefully decorated and spacious – the perfect, tranquil spaces to unwind and relax in.
Both properties provide an idyllic space for groups of guests to get together and reconnect. There’s a connecting door between the gardens that allow them to be combined for one group stay.

Outside

Both properties have ample space and amenities on offer for all guests – inside and out. Outside, each property has its own luxury pool spa (with swim jets and hot tub) that can be used year-round. Between them, there is room for all guests to get their feet wet and enjoy a decadent soak al fresco.

The manicured gardens are secluded and secure – perfect for the kids to run around or for the whole family to play a game or two. There’s also an on-site, secure play area where younger guests can enjoy hours of fun and adventure. With swings, slides, climbing frames and hidey holes, the play area offers endless entertainment and a safe space for little ones with bags of energy to burn.

Each property has its own large, decked patio area, with outdoor seating areas large enough for all guests to dine and barbecue together. These properties offer a tranquil oasis from the hustle and bustle of everyday life – you can sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet from the luxury sun loungers, perhaps with a cold beer or a glass of fizz.

If you’re feeling energetic, there are numerous hiking trails on the doorstep. If you wish to venture further afield, you’re also just a short drive to the seaside, bustling towns and cities and all the many attractions on offer in this beautiful county.
