We booked a 2 night stay at Upper Ansdore to get away from the hecticness of London for weekend. We had a lovely stay and our hosts were very welcoming from the start.

The pictures do not do it justice - the house is set in picturesque countryside surrounded by rolling fields, horses, and the occasional rambler - perfect for our break from the City smog.

The room itself was clean, comfortable and well maintained. We would recommend the local pub - The Compasses Inn for great food, atmosphere, and a chance to mingle with the locals.

We will definitely be returning and will thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

What a great find this country get away, snuggled up in the north downs, just what I needed to get away from the stresses and strains of life. The accommodation was immaculate but with a nice cosy feel to it. We enjoyed a full english breakfast before setting off on some lovely country walks ending up in a local pub for lunch.
Our host were friendly and very helpful but not too much in our face. The weekend went far too quickly but we went home refreshed and relaxed. We will deffinately be visiting again.

My friends and i recently stayed at this quaint little guest house. The owners were very warm and welcoming. We had a heart warming full on breakfast to start the day. The rooms were great, and of good quality. Would definitely recommend! Stunning scenery as well!

Being a Professor in history Ansdore guest house was a treat - with its historical background, a beautiful open 'inglenook' fireplace and dark wooden beams throughout, yet all the facilities of the modern world - our stay was both comfortable and interesting. Although we faced traffic problems on arrival and were therefore very late (gone midnight), the husband and wife kindly arranged for us to let ourselves in and we were able to make a deserved cup of tea in our room, which was much appreciated. Breakfast was full English but when my wife (a vegetarian) asked for an alternative, the helpful hosts kindly offered cereal and scrambled eggs on toast. One evening we borrowed a torch and walked to the local pub (The Compasses, also beautiful and historical) to eat some traditional home-cooked, hearty food. The second evening we drove 3 miles to the 'Timber Batts' (also known as 'Froggies') a french restaurant housed in a beautiful public house with an open fire - really top quality food-surprised it's not Michelin starred. All in all, our weekend break at Ansdore was very enjoyable and relaxing indeed. A super break from the hectic city life.

The owners were really friendly and accommodating and quickly made us feel at home (we were lucky enough to borrow their mountain bikes to explore the countryside and local pub!!) The room and ensuite were clean and comfortable. Location was perfect for us, being fairly close to Canterbury City Centre but on the doorstep to the most beautiful countryside. A tasty breakfast and plenty of room in the dining room - ideal really. Would liked to have stayed longer, but feel that we will return in the Summer.

A piece of old England.A charming traditional house with delightful garden.Trees heavy with delicious ripe cherries. Hosts were very helpful and accomodating at short notice.Stayed here on the way to Dover and liked it so much we stayed again on our return. Kids were welcome and our hosts went out of their way to facilitate our children.The children adored the friendly pet dog and cats.
