Set in the heart of Kent, this beautiful hotel enjoys the serenity of 15 acres of private grounds, yet is ideally twenty minutes from Ebbsfleet International Station (Eurostar) and thirty minutes from Ashford International Station. Built in 1868, the award winning gardens include a small lake, home to a variety of birds and rare plants and there is a large Victorian walled garden situated in the depths of the grounds featuring ancient roses. The tall cedar tree planted when the building was constructed stands proud at the front of the hotel. In the warmer months guests often walk further into the grounds and explore beautiful 'hidden' areas where they can relax and enjoy the tranquillity. The beautiful spa is a key feature of the hotel with Roman-themed interiors and 19 treatment rooms. The small town of Hextable is 1 km from the property and Dartford is 6 km away.
