Stayed here for a nearby wedding. Hoteliers very friendly excellent service. Breakfast amazing beautifully presented salmon and scrambled eggs. Wanted to stay for longer. Views exceeding. Will definitely be paying a return visit. Stayed in the coach house accommodation which is good size with everything you could want for.

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...

We spent ages trying to find a decent B & B in Kent and were delighted when we came across The Old Vicarage. It fitted all our criteria especially it's location in a quiet area away from traffic and other noise. The room we chose was the tack room which has the advantage of having a very well equipped kitchen...

Not easy to find, especially for continental driver scared by the narrow roads and fully concentrated on driving on the left side :-), but it is worth of visit, and not only one. The hotel is beautiful, you can stay either in the main building, or in two small houses wit equipped kitchenette next to the hotel. But breakfast served...

We stayed two nights at the Old Vicarage while vacationing in the UK from the States. We were in the area to go to the half day Falconry experience at the Hawking Centre next door. Being this close certainly added to the overall great experience of the day. We had a wonderful breakfast, then walked across the field to the...

This lovely old house and garden is a relaxing, comfortable, quiet place to stay amongst the North Kent Downs. The breakfast is excellent and the welcome friendly and hospitable, especially the cake. In all a delightful place to stay though some way from places you may wish to visit.

My husband and I are doing an extended trip around Europe, and the Old Vicarage has already been a highlight of our trip in the UK. The location is absolutely beautiful (rural/countryside), and the grounds are very lovely with sheep and gardens right next door. The church across the path is also amazing. We had a very sizable double room...
