Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Brilliantly placed’ for exploiting a wealth of Kentish history, this 18th-century house was restored by the Mathiases and transformed into a ‘comfortable home’ and ‘informal’ B&B, where ‘friendly, chatty’ Lynn Mathias welcomes visitors with tea and a baked treat fresh from her Aga. ‘Immaculate, tastefully decorated’ guest quarters occupy former servants’ rooms with a separate side entrance. Bedrooms have a comfortable super-king-size bed, a ‘comprehensive’ tea tray; ‘fluffy towels and quality toiletries’ in the well-equipped bathroom. Two-bedroom Blue Room is a spacious family suite. Keep children entertained with games, toys and a train set in the first-floor TV room; nose through DVDs, videos, heaps of books. A second sitting room acts as a study. The ‘generous’ breakfast is taken communally in the ‘spectacular’ kitchen, or a walled courtyard in clement weather: sample varied yogurts, home-made granola, baked plums in cinnamon; blueberry pancakes with maple syrup. Bring your tennis kit for a match on the court; in summer months, cool off in the outdoor pool.

Guest comments

'A place for people to stay who like to chat and to get to know their hosts. We were upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite which had every comfort. Our hosts provided us with crockery, cutlery and glasses to eat our picnic supper. Breakfast, in their lovely large kitchen at a long table, was a delicious array of fresh fruits, cereals, etc, and a very good cooked breakfast ' - AW - January, 2017
'The Matthiases have spent a great deal of money improving the place which they bought sixteen years ago in a state of decrepitude. The result is impressive. All is immaculate and well lit., tasteful and pleasant. Bedrooms are simply but adequately furnished. Lynn Matthias welcomed us with tea and scones warm from her Aga; Jonathan Matthias at breakfast chatted to us as we partook of the generous buffet, while Lynn cooked the hot dishes.. In summer, breakfast can be taken outdoors in their walled courtyard. Two stately rooms are available for weddings, retreats or seminars. ' - F W - March, 2015
'Beautiful house in attractive grounds and countryside. The Mathias family are excellent hosts, combining professionalism with warmth. Large bedroom with good bed and lighting. Huge bathroom. Big bonus, kitchen and laundry room for guest use, both well equipped. Delightful sitting room. ' - Victoria Maltby - August, 2012
