As we are expecting baby number 2 in the coming days, my wife and I planned a getaway to the Kent countryside for pre-loading some R&R over what is sure to be a hectic Christmastide this year! We sought a retreat slap-bang in the middle of the county, from which the coasts, plus Canterbury and Faversham were easily reachable. We...

This was our second, overnight, winter stay at this delightful B&B, this time in the coach house twin room; previously we had enjoyed the Church room (overlooking the pretty but macabrely named The Church of the Beheading of St John the Baptist!) We don't usually return to the same B&B (however good), as we like to spread our occasional "treats"...

What can I say? A simply fabulous stay, everything was perfect, from the friendly welcome from Nick and Claire and the lovely room, to the stunning views and delicious breakfast. Our room on the third floor - the valley suite - was gorgeous. I really enjoyed the roll top bath and nice touches, including bottled water in the room, tea,...

Absolutely a brilliant, exceptional and idyllic place to stay. From the initial warm friendly welcome from Claire, the welcome pot of tea, the high quality of the spacious bedroom, bathroom and the lovely sitting room and garden, and the delicious and high quality breakfast, it was simply faultless. And, for dog lovers, Biscuit and Lotti, the two welcoming retrievers, are...

We made a last minute decision to book at the Old Vicarage as we were extending our stay in Kent and wanted to go on to Canterbury - great choice. This is an exceptional B&B with friendly, welcoming hosts, lovely public rooms and gardens, a spacious and comfortable bedroom/ensuite bath and delicious breakfast featuring all local products.

We stayed here for two nights in August. We received a really warm welcome from Claire, Nick and their two dogs. The Old Vicarage is beautiful and has been lovingly restored. Our room overlooking the church was spacious, clean and had a lovely comfy sleigh bed. There isn't a wardrobe, but there are hooks and hangers as well as a...

Stayed here overnight for a wedding close to the area. The b&b and garden are absolutely beautiful. We stayed in a family room with one double room and another twin room which was well presented and spacious. The breakfast in the morning was lovely and we were really very sad to leave.
