The room was huge and beautifully appointed. Excellent bathroom and shower. The views even on a wet August day were lovely. Breakfast was beautifully served in a delightful room. The food was...

This really is a gem of a bed and breakfast. As stated in many previous reviews it really is a homely atmosphere where the hosts take a genuine interest in what you are doing and make helpful suggestions of where to visit and places to eat without being over intrusive We were in the Church room which was well appointed...

There is really not too much to say about our stay at the Old Vicarage, where my partner and myself celebrated our anniversary: it was simply perfect. We were in the Tack room, which is detached from the main house and it has access to a shared kitchen. The room was cozy, spotless and quiet, and the bed one of...

We had a Falconary experience & as this was next door it seemed the ideal place and how right we were. We stayed 1 night in the Tack room which was a lovely comfortable room with a huge 6ft bed. We were lucky to be able to use the facilites for the adjoining suite as it was not in use...

Opposite the Church you will find the lovely Old Vicarage. We were welcomed by our hosts and lead up the stairs to a beautiful room, more a suite really with its own bathroom, everything was immaculate and tastefully decorated with a wonderful view of the garden and countryside beyond. Bed was very comfortable with crisp white bedding. Tea, coffee and...

We can understand why no one rated less than excellent so far. We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of our holiday in the UK and returned for our last night, not in the last place to once more enjoy that superb breakfast. Both a regular room as well as the cottage are 100% perfect and comfortable places...

Can't recommend this more highly. Claire is such a kind and welcoming host. I stayed here as I was travelling to Kent but would return again specifically to spend more time here. Beautiful house and the Kent breakfast was just great. Thank you!

We were struggling to find somewhere to stay in Kent until my husband found 'The Old Vicarage' through Trip Advisor. What a fantastic place to stay, so peaceful and welcoming. Nick and Clare are wonderful hosts, the rooms are beautiful and the breakfasts are delicious. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed relaxing in the garden. The medieval church...

The old vicarage is a beautiful B&B/HOTEL in the heart of the kent countryside, we picked this hotel because we had a day booked at the nearby falconry in doddington gardens, and this came up as the closest to the venue, we did not want to drive from london on the day, what a stroke of good luck on our...
