I have lived in or around Maidstone for the best part of 30 years and I never knew this place existed until I saw it on trip advisor. I was looking for a special place to stay for our first wedding anniversary and did book another place first but cancelled and booked here based on the trip advisor comments and... More

My husband and I stayed here in October 2014. We absolutely loved it. Amanda and Mark are wonderful hosts. The public rooms and the bedrooms are beautiful. There is a gastro pub at the bottom of the drive. (Not associated with this property.) We ate there both nights. We're in our 60s and prefer not to drive at night while... More

Just returned from another great stay at Thurnham Keep. I really cant say enough about this place. I'm not big on B&B's, which are usually too cute, the owners too bothersome or intrusive. Keep's owners Amanda and Mark couldn't be more the opposite. They are welcoming, attentive, happy to engage in conversation if you ask, but very much leave you... More

We were there for 3 nights (our 2nd stay there) and it was beautiful! Amanda and Mark are SUCH gracious hosts(!), yet they give you plenty of privacy. All the rooms are very spacious and lovely, tastefully decorated with period antiques. The views from the rooms of the gorgeous grounds are stunning. The gardens and grounds are large & interesting... More

Both Amanda and Mark have a lovely warm way about them, they really made us feel relaxed and at ease. The views from our beautiful room were stunning and the gardens were the perfect place to sit...

Just off the beaten track - and on The Pilgrim's Way - this is a choice spot for a day or two of rest and recharging batteries. Amanda welcome's you like no other B&B hostess we have met before, with a refreshing aperitif! The accommodation is impressive: arts and craft meets country mansion. Very peaceful, with brilliant views. And a... More

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
