Stayed over for one night on the return leg of a gruelling roadtrip.. but after an excellent pub lunch , walk on the downs and a selection of fine ales soon felt much the better.
Breakfast .. the best of English !
The rooms , converted stables , were spacious and quiet although it was a Friday night and no lack of patrons.
The staff were very friendly and only regret was not being able to extend our stay to the caribbean seafood night..
Elham itself .. a ramblers paradise.
Will hopefully be able to re-visit in the near future.
