Tarn House

Tarn House The South Coast

Escape to a fabulous home-from-home on the edge of Kent

Just 3 miles from Kent, the Garden of England, Tarn House blends urban sophistication with a quiet, leafy charm. As you enter the grand, wood-panelled hall, you are tempted to linger awhile. But keep exploring, for this is a spectacular house. Wander from the drawing room to the music room – complete with Steinway grand piano and a well-considered library – and from there to the light-filled dining room and orangery. Spill out into the half-acre garden, where happy children can play all day on the trampoline, swings and wooden climbing frame.

From the Miele appliances in the kitchen to the Sonos sound system filling the house with music, every detail has the hallmark of quality. And there’s so much to love; the American pool table and table tennis table in the games room, the gym and the cinema room, the 8-person sauna. The list is seemingly endless.

When sleep beckons, there’s space, luxury and a sprinkling of magic, whether you’re in the main house, the penthouse apartment, or the self-contained cottage, where the sumptuous Medieval Suite promises dreams of knights in shining armour rescuing damsels from castle turrets.
