Good Hotel Guide Review

A long drive through landscaped gardens reveals this ‘simply wonderful’ Edwardian B&B where visitors are rewarded by a sweet welcome from ‘charming host’, Amanda Lane: ‘The best shortbread ever.’ Built from the ruins of Thurnham Castle, the ‘magnificent place’ stands on the crest of the North Downs. Up an oak staircase, each traditionally furnished bedroom has its own elegant personality; in two, a huge, original Edwardian bath in the bathroom; in all, soft pastels, splendid period furniture. A family might opt for a spacious self-contained suite in newly converted stables. A communal breakfasts brings home-made jams, garden hive-gathered honey, fresh-from-the-coop eggs. Supper might be arranged in advance; plenty of nearby pubs, too. ‘We’d love to return.’
