Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Simply the very best,’ wrote one reader this year. From on high, Wendy and Neil Burrows’s farmhouse enjoys stunning sunsets over the Alkham Valley. B&B guests are offered ‘delicious’ home-made cake on arrival, a picnic for walks on the Kent Downs; an evening bowl of soup; the chance to unwind in the spa barn with hot tub and sauna. ‘I felt truly looked after,’ another reader enthuses. ‘Wendy and Neil are warm, attentive hosts.’ Discreet bedrooms each have a private entrance; within the country-style rooms: fresh flowers, robe and slippers, coffee machine, mini-fridge, biscuits and complimentary sherry; expansive rural views. Two restored vintage shepherd huts within the grounds have log-burners. An ‘outstanding’ breakfast brings home-baked muffins, local pressed apple juice, farm-fresh eggs. ‘I wish we could have stayed for weeks.’

Guest comments

'Alkham Court deserves to be in the Good Hotel Guide. We were very well looked after in comfortable and very clean accommodation with an excellent breakfast. Both hosts did everything one would want to make us comfortable. ' - R. Young - April, 2019
'Wendy and Neil are the warmest hosts you could meet. Our room, the Wisteria Room, was comfortable and well appointed. Every detail is thought about. The breakfast was perfect, with a breathtaking view, whilst sitting next to a cozy fire. ' - Laura Kolb - December, 2017
'I felt truly looked after. I arrived in the dark, and was met by Wendy, with a torch. After delicious sponge cake with tea by the fire, I took flopped into my beautifully crisp bed in the 'wisteria room'. I felt I'd landed in my own private den. Breakfast in their conservatory-is plentiful. I munched away looking out on to idyllic country scenes; green fields with horses doing their thing. After breakfast, I spent time in the sauna, then had a little explore of the hamlet. Wendy offered to make me soup in the evening, which I devoured with fresh local bread! The excellent hosting and exquisite surroundings make staying here luxurious and restorative. ' - Harriet Olins - October, 2017
