Our home

Bidborough Court is a beautiful Victorian Country house set in 3 acres of peaceful gardens. We bought and extensively renovated our apartment in January 2019, and it is now a modern, comfortable home filled with light, overlooking the gardens and rolling Kent countryside beyond.
From the entrance hall is a cloakroom where the washer/dryer is located, the other door leads into a light, spacious , comfortable lounge with high ceilings and windows overlooking the front and side of the house. There is a dining table in the bay window. The lounge flows into a bright, modern kitchen with oven, convection hob, combination microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher.
The master bedroom has plentiful storage and 3 windows overlooking the gardens. There is an en-suite bathroom with a bath.
The second bedroom is also a calm, light space and can be used as a second sitting room or bedroom. There is also an en-suite shower .
Outside, there is a spacious drive with visitor parking and a garage within a block The gardens are colourful, peaceful and extensive, with numerous areas to sit and relax.
We have kind, helpful neighbours, who are likely to offer suggestions about places to visit, to eat and drink.
