Oak floors, period fireplaces and exposed timbers in an old inn popular with Spitfire pilots during WWII. Bedrooms exude creature comforts

Peacefully wedged between the M20 and M26, Wrotham and its rambling old coaching inn sit on Kent's glorious North Downs, smack-bang on the Pilgrim's Way. Refurbishment of the Bull – the village hub – has been a labour of love. The final flurry has seen some lovely bedrooms come to life; oak floors, period fireplaces and ceiling timbers have been revealed. Creature comforts are plentiful: crisp linen, smart beds, deep leather sofas and old-fashioned radiators, while good bathrooms have underfloor heating, power showers and Duck Island lotions. Downstairs, in a bar once frequented by Battle of Britain pilots (note the stamps on the ceiling), you find Dark Star ales, interesting wines and good seasonal food, perhaps venison sausages, a 30-day-aged fillet steak, an orange and almond cake. It's a great country bolthole for the modern-day pilgrim and for Eurotunnel/port-bound travellers. Walks start from the front door and National Trust gems – Knole Park and Churchill's Chartwell – are close.

"The staff at this place deserve all the praise, excellent customer service despite the place running at full throttle on the night we stayed. Delicious food, cooked and served with care and attention to detail, and the same again at breakfast. Excellent value too. "

"Just how a pub with rooms should be - great atmosphere, beer, wine, food, attentive landlord and comfortable bedrooms. What more could you want?"
