Wallett's Court  (Shortlist*)

In a pretty hamlet near St Margaret’s Bay, the Oakley family’s quirky hotel has a broad choice of accommodation, and plenty to occupy young guests. There are spacious traditional rooms in the white-painted Jacobean manor house; snug stable-block rooms overlooking the gardens and wild flower meadows; high-ceilinged Kentish barn suites; and a hut, a woodcutter’s cabin, a bathing wagon and luxury tipis, all with outdoor fire pits, spread out in the extensive landscaped gardens. In the oak-beamed restaurant, Chris Oakley and Michael Fowler, the new chef, use home-grown and foraged produce alongside locally landed fish and St Margaret’s Bay lobster; Chef’s Table tasting menus may be arranged for parties of four or more. Breakfast, served ‘at a leisurely pace’, has eggs from resident hens, and locally sourced bacon and sausages. 10 mins’ drive from the port and cruise terminal.
