We spent only one night here, but would happily have stayed longer & will definitely be back next time we're visiting our friends nearby. Beautiful old house, immaculately restored and kept, yet still welcoming and comfortable. Our bedroom & adjoining bathroom were spotless & well-appointed. Mr & Mrs Baker were friendly & pleased in the morning to show us around... More

A very comfortable bedroom and bathroom, and an excellent home cooked breakfast, all provided by Cheryl and Clive and their beautiful cat! Wingham is a lovely village with plenty of facilities and easy to reach from any direction. Would recommend this venue for visitors to the area as places like Canterbury and Whitstable are within easy reach.

Very friendly B and B run by the lovely Cheryl and Clive who were warm and welcoming but also let you get on with things and enjoy your break. The Ship itself is gorgeous and so neat and tidy it was a haven of peace immediately. Our room was the king which is very private in a sort of wing... More

The Old Ship in Wingham is an excellent place to stay for a short break in Kent, being close to Canterbury and its wonderful cathedral but without the problems of parking, traffic etc. We recommend that you sample Clive and Cheryl's warm hospitality. The bedroom and shower room were very clean with good quality bed linen and fresh towels. Plenty... More

We were looked after by Jan and Mike, friends of the owners who were on holiday. We were made to feel very welcome and the room (the large kingsize) was excellent and spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom. The breakfast that we were served was very nice and there was plenty of it! I would certainly stay there again.

We stayed at The Old Ship over Easter weekend. Our room had lots of light and was very comfortable and clean. The shower was great! It was easy to drive to other places in the area, such as Whitstable and Bridlington. We did a coastal walk that our hosts recommended, which was great! We would certianly stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights - it's in a great central position for exploring the area. It's a delightful, thatched cottage (formerly an inn) and we had a clean, light and airy room. It was all very well appointed. The owners made us feel very welcome. We tried out two of their recommendations for evening meals - the Red... More

We stayed at the Old Ship for 5 days in August and we loved it! Friendly hosts, extensive breakfast, nice spaceous, spotless room, perfect location. Good food at walking distance. Situated in a cute little village but only 15 min. to Canterbury / seaside... We would definitely recommend this B&B. Couple from Belgium with 4-year old

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Ship is a 400-year-old thatched former inn, one of the few surviving thatched buildings in the picturesque village of Wingham near to Canterbury. The village can trace its history as far back as Celtic and then Roman times. In the Medieval period Wingham was a manor belonging to the Archbishop of Canterbury. Today, you can still see much evidence of Wingham's medieval past. ... more   less
