“relaxing stay”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Spent one night here, having booked at very short notice, and were so pleased with our choice. We stayed in the Badger Room, on the first floor, & it was lovely. The bed was super comfortable, and there was even a sofa to relax on. We also enjoyed the extra touches, such as the small decanter of sherry - very warming on a winter evening. The breakfast was very good as well, particularly the freshly made blueberry muffins.

There was lots to do in the local area as well - don't miss the White Cliffs, where you can do some excellent walking. We parked in the National Trust car park, on the outskirts of Dover, & walked to St Margarets at Cliffe & back again. It was a good afternoon's walk, with a teashop at the end, in the NT visitor centre. We also visited Samphire Hoe, which was good for a couple of hours - again you can get refreshments there, even in winter! From there we went on to Walmer Castle, much smaller than Dover Castle, but great for an afternoon.

My wife and I were very please with Alkham Court. Great location to visit Dover, Dover Castle, Leeds Castle, Bodium Castle etc etc. The hosts were very kind and very accommodating.They visited with us during breakfast and gave tips and tricks of the area. Would definitely go back if we were to return to this area.

Stayed here for three nights in September. It is warm and welcoming with amazing hosts who go above and beyond to ensure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. The rooms are fitted with everything you could need and more and the breakfast is spectacular! The views and grounds around the farmhouse are also amazing with the added bonus of a well kept hot tub complete with the gorgeous views. Would highly recommend alkham court farmhouse to anyone and will be back as soon as I am able.

We had such a nice time in Wendy and Neil's B&B a few years ago, we came again for 6 nights. We were apprehensive that we'd find enough to do, but Neil and Wendy gave us great advice on where to visit (don't miss Walmer Castle and it's gardens) and nearby picturesque pubs in which to eat. Not to mention Wendy's breakfasts- outstanding. Since we've been there before, they put in a new dining room, added a spa and sauna in a nearby building, and added antiques and nice things to the room. It was a great visit and we'll come again.

What a beautiful stay! The room was beautiful, pretty, homely - with little hidden treasures! The bed was so comfortable and the ensuite, with both bath and shower, sparkled. The sherry was a lovely touch! Wendy and Neil are wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much for them. We came back the first evening to find our light washing folded softly on our bed. The rolling hills were a magnificent backdrop for relaxation while reading in the many spots around the place - or just lying in the sun. Wendy's breakfasts were to die for. A magnificent spread of cereals, fruit, jams...followed by a delicious cooked breakfast set you up for the day. It was a pity that we only had 2 nights here. Should we ever have the chance one day to return to England from Australia we will certainly be back.

Where do I begin? Everything about this farmhouse was top class - the rooms, the scenery outside, the Oakroom, the breakfast, the hot tub and sauna and the whole atmosphere around the place.

But more than anything else, it is Wendy and Neil, who are the perfect hosts and make sure they take care of all the aspects of our stay to make it wonderful. We were there to celebrate my wife's birthday (her first with me after marriage) - the cakes and flowers that were arranged were top quality and they also took the pains to arrange these on a table on the Oak room just before midnight so that we could go in and celebrate my wife's birthday at midnight.

My wife keeps saying this has been her best birthday ever and all thanks to our wonderful hosts, Wendy ad Neil. Out only regret was that we had to leave so soon - we will surely return if we get a chance in future!
