Old Smock Mill is a romantic place for couples. The atmosphere inside is peaceful and relaxing. Everything is designed to unwind you from the moment you walk in. It is surrounded by the lovely Kent countryside where you can ramble and refresh yourselves by perhaps ending the day in one of the great pubs cosy by a log fire in Winter or in Summer an English garden . Guests have said how hard it is to tear themselves away, it truly is a treasure to find.

Clare couldn’t have been more welcoming. The Mill has been restored to perfection, a beautifully, calming ‘wood heaven’ for those who have an eye for great workmanship. An absolute gem in a piece of the Kent countryside. Nish & Steve

The Mill is a lovely spot in the yield of Kent surrounded by gorgeous countryside. We stayed here during our wedding and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The bed was ridiculously comfy and the views from the balcony were just wow. Clare was always very quick and helpful in her response. We’d definitely recommend.

Clare's place is the absolute best of airbnb: a wonderfully thoughtful host, a unique location, and an incredible home steeped in history. This windmill is even more spectacular than the pictures show, and Clare's detailed restoration is stunning. My husband and I ended our honeymoon with four nights here, and we loved this romantic home. Clare has thought of everything. From the fresh bread and cider to the soft bathrobs, we couldn't have asked for anything more. MTC taxi was wonderful since we didn't have a car with us. Perhaps our favorite thing about our stay was wandering through the breathtaking footpaths that run through the countryside. The windmill is just a few steps from a footpath entrance, and these beautiful trails run for miles in all directions (search public footpaths on the Kent County website). We followed them to both Benenden and Rolvenden on different days. These long afternoon walks were the perfect compliment to snuggling up in the beautiful windmill. If we are ever back in Kent, we will be sure to return to this incredible place again.

Hello I enjoy painting in oils, gardening and seeing gardens, cooking and having great meals with the family. We love to holiday in the West country by the sea. With the Windmill I have worked to create an interesting space for people to share and enjoy. The Windmill is set in our garden and we are delighted to meet the guests who will be staying although you are left to be as private as you wish. We have Ash our golden labrador and Maisie the kitten who is very much the boss.
Freshly laid eggs from our organic chickens are given as part of your welcome basket.
We look forward to meeting you in our relaxing surroundings.
