A classic manor house in an idyllic setting, close to Canterbury and the North Downs Way. This warm, civilised home mixes Tudor beams with Georgian proportions; find a huge conservatory full of greenery, a guest sitting room with sofas and log fire, and breakfasts fresh from the Aga. Traditional bedrooms are carpeted and cosily furnished. Your charming, country-loving hosts welcome you with tea and flowers from the garden – a perfect spot with its lawns, tree-lined avenue, bluebell woods and stone obelisk. Not much more than a half hour train ride from London – and ten minutes from the Chunnel, but this is worth more than one night.
