Good Hotel Guide Review

Watch the sun set over the Alkham valley from Wendy and Neil Burrows’s farmhouse B&B in the Kent Downs. Green countryside stretches out in front of the house – it’s an ideal setting for a welcome drink in the garden. (On cool days, a seat by the log-burner in the sitting room is just as nice.) Country-style bedrooms, each with a private entrance, have fresh flowers, a coffee machine and complimentary sherry; alternatively, a restored shepherd’s hut in the grounds, cosy with a wood-burning stove and electric heating, makes a quirky ‘glamping’ option. A bonus, for utter relaxation: a sauna and indoor hot tub. Hearty breakfasts have freshly baked muffins, local pressed apple juice, eggs from the house’s free-range hens. 15 mins’ drive from the Eurotunnel and the port of Dover; pubs and restaurants nearby.

Guest comments

'I felt truly looked after. I arrived in the dark, and was met by a very warm lady, 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; endless green fields with relaxed 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! I left the following day feeling replenished, but sad to leave. The excellent hosting and exquisite surroundings make staying here so luxurious and restorative. It reminds you how wonderful the British landscape can be, and how soul - boosting kind people are. I can't wait to go back. I'd recommend it to everyone! ' - Harriet Olins - October, 2017
