Best Bed and Breakfast/Hotel in Tenterden

My husband and I are planning a garden tour for summer 2011 and are considering Tenterden as a base. Can anyone recommend a centrally located, quiet, charming B&B or hotel?

Also, what are the best restaurants?

And what are the small gardens in the area that we might enjoy?

Hi there,

Have not stayed in Tenterden itself, but we have stayed in a B&B which is fairly close to Tenterden before which we thought was quite nice:

As for nearby gardens, you could try Great Dixter http://www.greatdixter.co.uk/index.htm or see www.gardens-to-go.org.uk/kent_gardens.htm for more ideas.

By the way, if you decide to go to several of the National Trust gardens / stately homes down that way, you should maybe consider getting membership if it works out cheaper than paying admission prices each time. See http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/

Have fun!

If you have no transport the above recommendation is not practical, there is not a regular bus service between Woodchurch & Tenterden, I live in Woodchurch & whilst its a lovely village you need a car.

Tenterden is a lovely town but if you like gardens and want somewhere special to stay you could try the recently opened Sissinghurst Castle Farmhouse which is about 15 minutes drive away and actually inside the grounds of the National Trust Sissinghurst Garden estate. http://www.sissinghurstcastlefarmhouse.com/ I haven't stayed there myself but it looks lovely from the outside and has been getting rave reviews in the press and on this site.

Gardens in the area I'd recommend (as well as Sissinghurst) are Marle Place http://www.marleplace.co.uk/ , Hole Park

Forgot to say - best restaurant for miles around is the West House, Biddenden. Michelen star but very reasonable prices. http://www.thewesthouserestaurant.co.uk/
