Came here for a 1 night stay in London. 1 hour on the train, 10 mins in a cab and you are in heaven. Well-appointed rooms, with complimentary sherry and nespresso machine. Packed lunch with the best baked ham I have ever had, courtesy of lovely Wendy.
The owners were not there when we arrived, but had left a lovely hand-written card welcoming us. Nice touch.
Spent the afternoon in the garden enjoying the sun and the views, and didn't see another soul. Just what the doctor ordered!
For dinner, we took an hour-long walk to The Lydden Bell pub, which I have also reviews, and is worth a visit.
On returning, Wendy greeted us, along with friendly black labrador, Tilly, who, if you like dogs, is just swell.
On the morning of departure, we had the full breakfast, which as others have mentioned is epic. Local yoghurt, fruit and museli to start, then the full English brilliantly prepared by Neil and Wendy. Spent some time playing with Tilly in the wild flower garden before leaving in a cab they ordered for us.
They have won plenty of awards, and I could tell why. Immaculate rooms, food and grounds, as well as superb hospitality means I will be back for at least a 2-night stay.
Thanks Wendy and Neil, and give Tilly a hug from me!
