Stoneacre House


Back in August 2018 we went to a house called Stoneacre, Otham, Maidstone in Kent. Stoneacre is a medieval yeoman’s house and garden constructed in the 15th Century. What I love about the Stoneacre house was the windows, made of wood and lead lights, which I thought would be great for Ludwig’s Monday Windows Photography Challenge.

The interior was grand with its dark wood and ornate features. The gardens were just lush with the planting of shrubs and flowers. The front garden in more formal whereas the rear garden is more informal with long grass and an orchard. The location is ideal for country walks… and would be ideal for one of Restless Jo’s Monday Walks.

We are members once again of the National Trust and are great fans of the various properties they own and maintain throughout England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. We just love visiting their properties and immediately thought this image would be ideal for Jez Braithwaite’s Fan of Photography Challenge – National Trust Properties and Tina’s Lens-Artists Home Sweet Home Photography Challenge.

  8. Stunning shows of impressive homes. I particularly loved the pink estate, and also the red-roofed home with the water in the front. It reminds me of a Thomas Kincaid photo.
