We had a wonderful time. The home and gardens are lovely, and we were made to feel very welcome. Great breakfasts, great scones, and great hospitality. We would definitely visit here again. Thank you very much.

We stayed there for the night and it was perfect! The room was beautiful and so was the Edwardian bath. We got to use the pool and it was nice being able to relax and enjoy the views. Amanda and Mark are so nice too and their home made honey is delicious!! Would definitely stay again !

We stayed for two nights and this has to be one of the UK's finest B and Bs! You stay in one of three rooms in a beautiful country house. Each room has far reaching countryside views and also overlooks the fabulous gardens. NB there are no showers, however you do get to bathe in the original Edwardian baths! It's... More

Thurnham Keep near Maidstone is one of my favorite B&Bs on our whirlwind tour through the UK. Amanda and Mark, our gracious hosts, were immediately welcoming and engaging, in spite of their preparations for a party to meet the parents of their daughter’s fiancé. Not missing a beat, Amanda served refreshing drinks for us to savor in their sitting room.... More

This lovely home is where Amanda spent her childhood. She and Mark started renovating in approximately 16 years ago. The property containing rose bushes, peonies, box, lavendar, and many other scented flowers is enchanting. There are bee hives that allow Amanda and Mark to produce their own honey; chickens where Amanda gathers fresh eggs every morning for omelettes. This is... More

But only so it won't be booked up the next time I want to stay. Beautiful building in idyllic settings. Hosts are so friendly and knowledgeable and Mandy's baking is to die for! Perfect romantic getaway!
