Get into the spirit of the Jazz age at number one Home Farm Drive. Located in the grounds of Upton House, with its own garden, this cottage has the look and feel of the 1930s, with all the comforts of modern life.

The end of a terrace of three, this spacious cottage was once an 18th-century stable. The 2nd Viscount Bearsted converted it into a weekend and holiday home for the family's Rabbi in the 1930s.

The cottage is jazzed up in art deco style. From the fireplace and armchairs to the mirrors and rugs, 1 Home Farm Drive oozes 1930s glamour and sophistication.

Take tea on the patio and take in the countryside that borders the cottage’s garden. Look out for the racehorses from the neighbouring estate, owned by relatives of the Bearsteds.
