SDAF AGM

The title may sound dull, but the event was lively and abuzz with chatter!

SDAF Chairman, Penny Cracknell said that 2016 had been a year of achievement, and quality new members.  The Brexit impact of the fall in sterling should make the UK a fantastic bargain for overseas visitors, and Sevenoaks District B & Bs and self-caterers looked forward to welcoming them.

Many thanks to The Stag, Sevenoaks for hosting the evening.  The Stag Coffee Lounge made a wonderful location and hopefully members and their guests will visit again to enjoy tea (in a pot), coffee and cake!

Make your stay a historic one . . .

May we Introduce SDAF's fabulous new member, TAYLOR HOUSE in Edenbridge? This stunningly refurbished Grade 1 listed 15th townhouse stands proudly on Edenbridge High Street.  

Built in 1468 for the Lord Mayor of London, William Taylor, the house has witnessed history passing its front door for centuries.  Now you can be part of its contemporary history by staying in this gem where period features have been complemented by 21st century luxuries! 

This atmospheric self-catering property sleeps a maximum of 12, in five bedrooms (including one four poster), and two bathrooms.  A large and comprehensively equipped kitchen/diner, three reception rooms and on-site parking will make this a fantastic family and friends holiday base.

Take a look for yourself and be wowed!
