Good Hotel Guide Review
Take in stunning sunsets over the ‘beautiful’ Alkham valley from Wendy and Neil Burrows’s much-liked farmhouse – a ‘haven’, say Guide readers in 2020, ‘run by wonderful, engaging hosts.’ B&B guests are offered home-made cake on arrival; a picnic for walks on the Kent Downs; an evening bowl of soup, with warm, crusty rolls; the spa barn with a hot tub and sauna to unwind in. Country-style bedrooms each have a private entrance, and treats within: flowers, robes and slippers, a coffee machine, biscuits and sherry. The hosts ‘have a love for the area’, and can enthusiastically advise on diversions in countryside and along the coast. In the morning: ‘The best breakfast I’ve had in England for a very long time!’
