This manor house, located two miles off the M20 at Maidstone (50-minute train ride from Victoria Station), majestically atop one of the rolling hills of the North Downs, is the epitome of what my husband and I are always seeking in our lodgings in England: 1. Beauty and casual elegance: We could not believe the panoramic view of the rolling... More

When you follow the narrow lane and come across this beautiful B&B, it takes your breath away. Ticks all the boxes. Location, secluded, views, large bedrooms and en suites, decor, history, close to the airports and Kent attractions. Amanda and Mark were wonderful hosts. Nothing was to much trouble. Without doubt it was the highlight of our stay in the... More

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

Thank you to Amanda and Mark for being so welcoming and accommodating. We had a wonderful two night stay in this gorgeous house. 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.
