We don't live far from Thurnham Keep but have passed it on walks and always wondered what it was like .... Well it's beautiful - tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Amanda is very welcoming and her home made cakes are delicious !! We met some really nice people - including a lovely couple who had come all the way from... More

Were going to tour Leed's Castle, so this option was close. In small village of Thurnham! Was a little hard to find as we arrived, but well worth the search. Awesome view from top of hill! Beautiful country home with awesome garden! Loved our room & breakfast was great! Hostess & host were so helpful!

We stayed at Thurnham Keep twice once on the night of our Wedding and our Anniversary. The Building is stunning in & out side, the rooms are like what you would see in a Home Interior magazine. The ground have been kept well, we had our photo's taken after our wedding at the B&B. The Full English breakfast was really... More

The previous 100+ reviews will tell you everything you need to know about the basics of this fabulous place. To call it a B&B is a misnomer. It is much more like a 5 star hotel except of course there is no restaurant or bar or other things that you might associate with a top class hotel. But neither is... More

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
