We spent three days at Alkham Court before a cruise that left for Dover. It was a great place to recover from jet lag, and see Dover and Canterbury. The room was great; the food was first rate (the eggs were from their chickens); our hosts were wonderful. We couldn't have asked for anything better.

Stayed in Pheasant room for 2 nights, a spacious room with many personal touches. The farmhouse is in a lovely setting at the top of a valley with great views whilst eating a great breakfast, fresh produce & great choices. Knowledgeable hosts with outstanding service. Use of the hot tub & jacuzzi finished the days off nicely, Wouldn't think twice... More

We stayed in this B&B for 2 nights and loved every minute of it. Great room with spa nearby. Fantastic breakfast and great service. The B&B is located on top of a hill looking out over de fields of the farm. With dover (with the white cliffs) nearby you have a nice time walking/hiking/citytrip) and when you come back there...

My wife and I stayed in the Garden Room and really enjoyed our stay. The room was extremely comfortable with lots of tiny details that really sets Alkham Court apart. From the coffee machine to the sheep wearing an Alkham Court sweater you can see the care that has been taken. Breakfast was the best we've ever eaten with farmers... More

Lovely room, great food, fantastic setting, nice people - what more could you ask for? I was on my own this time but I have pledged to return with my wife so she can see what a delightful place this is.

We stayed two nights whilst exploring the local area, in particular Dover Castle (see separate review). We had booked the Pheasant Room. The property lived up to our expectations and certainly merits its many awards. Our room was furnished, equipped and cleaned to a very high standard and every detail had clearly been carefully thought through. The shared guest conservatory,... More

We truly could not have found a better place to stay on our last night in England. It's a short drive from Dover, where we planned to begin our return trip to Germany Saturday, so we called a few days before, after looking at reviews here, to see if they could squeeze us in for Friday night. Wendy confirmed the... More

We arrived looking forward to a relaxing weekend and were not disappointed. The room was comfy, the breakfast exquisite and the surroundings lovely. I would recommend a stay to anyone planning a stay near the Dover/Kent area.
