About Priest's House

Sitting on the edge of Sissinghurst Castle’s gardens, this is the perfect spot for garden lovers.

Priest’s House is a stunning detached brick property, believed to be part of the Elizabethan mansion that made up Sissinghurst Castle. Completely renovated, but with reams of original features, the property boasts mullion and leaded windows, inglenook fireplace, wooden beams and brick flooring. Sitting on the edge of the White Garden, it’s a must-stay for garden lovers or those just after a bit of peace and tranquillity. 

Rise early and explore Sissinghurst Castle. Discover its diverse history; from the astonishing time as a prison in the 1700s, to being a home to the women’s land army. You’ll also have 450 acres of the wider estate to explore too. 

Further afield visit Chiddingstone a surviving Tudor village and discover the legend of the chiding stone. Enjoy a bite to eat before taking a stroll through the surrounding countryside. Head down to the Kent coast, from which you’ll be less than an hours’ drive from. Loop onto the Kent Coast Path for stunning walks along the White Cliffs of Dover.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
