Chilston Park hotel does what is says on the tin: it's a classic British country house hotel. Unashamedly traditional, this Kentish hotel offers comfortable bedrooms and a formal restaurant serving classy British cuisine and generous afternoon teas that are particularly popular with those celebrating the birthdays of older relatives. The house itself is a beauty, set in delightful private grounds that slip seamlessly into the countryside and provide a beautiful backdrop for G&Ts on the lawns with epic games of giant chess.



We love the sense of anticipation that builds as you follow the tree-flanked driveway up to the manor house.

The hotel is set in 22 acres of parkland in the Kent countryside, 12 miles from Maidstone and close to the Kent Downs AONB.
By car: 1 hour 15 mins from London via A2, 1 hour 30 mins from Brighton via A23. 3 hours 15 mins from Nottingham. Free parking is available on-site.
By train: Lenham station is a 4-minute drive from the hotel, accessed in 1 hour 30 mins from London Victoria, 45 mins from Canterbury.
