If you want a wonderful weekend getaway, go no farther. Our 2nd stay, this time in Coach House, and I hope it won't be our last. For US visitors it's about an hour from Gatwick and surrounded by the beautiful Kent countryside. An easy drive to 4 or 5 Michelin recommended restaurants and some great walks - Ask Claire about...

My second visit to the Old Vicarage, this time for two nights whilst walking in the area. I see that this lovely home is now up to 55 reviews - 56 with this one - and that every last one of them is 5*, "excellent." What a wonderful achievement that is by Nick & Claire. This place simply cannot be... More

Have to agree with all the previous reviews and say that our stay was extrememly confortable and welcoming. The gardens and house are beautuful. The breakfast was delicious and... More

We stayed for 1 night as we were going to a wedding just up the road. The welcome from Claire was great and we had the coach house to ourselves which was great. This is one of the nicest b&b's I have stayed in - gorgeous, clean, comfortable accommodation. Fabulous large comfy bed and delicious breakfast and utterly charming and... More

This lovely bed and breakfast home has transformed my annual visit to my native village. There is simply nothing to criticise - a superbly renovated vicarage with comfortable spacious bedrooms, delicious local food - try Doughty's sausages with Claire's scrambled eggs - and the warmest possible welcome. The rural views from the dining room are peaceful and refreshing and Claire... More

Well the Old Vicarage is just an amazing jewel of a place! I stayed here for 3 nights in February whilst I was working in Sittingbourne. Claire & Nick are the most generous, convivial of hosts. I could not have felt more welcome, particularly as I was travelling alone! The location is completely secluded, opposite a beautiful village church. My... More

It was a shame we only had time to stay one night in the delightful Old Rectory, it is a gem not to be missed! We can't recommend it enough! Claire made us feel so welcome on arrival and to sit in the sun drenched lounge eating homemade banana cake, with an attentive Biscuit (one of lovely dogs) watching us... More

Just one night was enough to know that Claire and Nick provide superb hospitality. From the welcoming pot of tea, toast and jam to the hearty breakfast just before departure it was an ideal stop on my travels around Kent. The location is stunning and the house likewise. The room was spacious and comfortable with just about everything you might... More

Even though we only stayed one night in the cottage, Claire made us feel very welcome in her lovely home. A comfy bed, luxurious towels, a delicious breakfast and gorgeous surroundings - I'm sure we will be back for more.

A beautiful location and a marvellous B&B. Warmest greetings from Nick & Clare welcoming us into their home. A lovely old building with excellent modern facilities, breakfast was unbelievable. You won't be disappointed with a stay at The Old Vicarage, and I can't wait to go back.
