The Grade 1 listed Chilston Park offers one of the most exclusive hotels in Kent. Set back from tree-lined lanes, the manor house at Chilston Park Hotel in Kent is set in 22 acres of parkland and features a two AA rosette restaurant. One of the most best loved hotels in Kent, over the years Chilston Park has been a home to eminent politicians, writers, Lords and Viscounts. Today it is a classic British country house hotel with plenty of style and charm and one of the most perfect wedding or leisure destinations in Kent. But perhaps the most remarkable aspect of this 4 AA red star hotels in Kent are the antiques and history that surround it. The hotel has many interesting artefacts that date as far back as the 17th century manor house.

When I booked on the hotel website I asked if they had a room with a stand alone shower - rather than one over the bath. It transpired that the only one they had available was for disabled access. Declining this I went for a room with the shower over bath option. They emailed

We booked a room at the very last minute to stay at Chilston Park Hotel and the truth is that it was a sudden decision, but very accurate! Starting from the place itself, an impressive building full of corners to explore and discover, and a really interesting story. We stayed in

Dear Guest All of the places that you wish to visit are semi-rural and thus there are no direct public transport links from Chilston Park to them. The village of Lenham is approximate 1.5 miles from the hotel and can easily be walked to. Harrietsham is slightly further afield and would be best travelled to via a local taxi which we can arrange here at the hotel, this journey will take around 10 minutes. Hawkhurst and Tenterden are further afield but could be reached by catching a train from Lenham station and changing at Ashford. I hope this information helps. Best wishes Gareth Davies General Manager

Dear Guest We are in an ideal location to visit each of these destinations, Tenterden would be furthest from Chilston Park at around thirty minutes traveling time by road. Best wishes Gareth Davies General Manager
