Hookstead House is not widely advertised so we were pleased we had found out about it. We were met at the door by Sue and given tea and cake in a lovely well-sheltered garden. Our room was huge and had a four poster bed. We had a large, very comfy sofa as well as a good selection of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and some speciality tea which our hosts had brought back from a trip. There were also shortbread biscuits left out for us. The ensuite bathroom was also huge. The bath itself was bigger than standard and had plenty of hot water. There were candles and incense sticks we could use as well as some nice bubble bath and shower gels and even massage oil. All of the carpets, curtains, bed linen and towels were thick and good quality. Our room included an information booklet which gave local points of interest and places to eat as well as information about the house and H&S while we were there. There were also plenty of tourist information type booklets in the comfy sitting room we were invited to use as and when we wanted. We drove into Tenterden in the evening, parked up and walked the length of the pretty main street. We had a very nice Indian meal at one of the places recommended by our hosts. We had completed cards stating what cooked breakfast items we would like and at what time the evening before. Breakfast was served in the wood panelled dining room. We shared the main table with the other guests and were treated to David's butler service. The cooked breakfast was lovely and we were offered plenty of tea, coffee, juice and toast as well as being able to help ourselves to cereals, fruit and yogurt. If we are in the area again we’d definitely like to stay here again.
