Our stay at Thurnham Keep was the epitome of genteel countryside luxury - exactly what we were after! The room was beautiful and the bed so comfy i didn't want to leave. Amazing big bath, lovely grounds and super breakfast and Amanda is such a lovely hostess. I hope we can go back soon! x

What a pleasant surprise. An absolutely wonderful B&B. Beautifully decorated rooms, large, comfortable, perfectly clean and big fluffy towels. The house, the views and grounds are magnificent and a credit to Amanda and Mark. Oh, and the breakfast is a very pleasant experience - try the homemade marmalade and home produced honey! We'd stay again and again. Jackie and David,... More

Fabulous Edwardian house set in beautiful surroundings with tennis court, swimming pool and croquet lawn. Hosts made us feel very welcome. Great position for pubs and restaurants. May seem expensive for b&b but well worth it.

Thurnham Keep had all the attributes of a luxury small hotel combined with the warm and friendly personal attention of Amanda. Everywhere was totally immaculate and the grounds and the view from the bedroom quite breathtaking. The breakfast menu was extensive and timings very flexible. The spacious entrance area also served as the lounge area for residents. The proximity of... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Everything about the break was perfect. The location, the house, the grounds, the breakfast and probably most importantly, the hosts. Amanda and Mark made us feel so welcome it felt like we'd known them forever. There is plenty of photographic evidence here to allow you... More

Fantastic country house atmosphere, gorgeous views from garden terraces, beautifully furnished bedroom and bathroom. Can recommend highly, great all round experience from hosts who really know how to provide excellent but unobtrusive hospitality. Short walk down the driveway to the country pub for evening food, very pleasant.

A lovely house set in beautiful countryside. My partner and I were delighted to be greeted to Thurnham Keep by our hostess and immediately offered 'afternoon tea' on the terrace . Our spacious en suite accommodation in ' The Sissinghurst Room' was special overlooking the lovely garden and the North Downs beyond. A hearty breakfast, prepared and served by our... More

Stayed one night in a lovely room with a huge bathroom. Slept like a log in a very comfortable and large bed and the breakfast was a delight. The owners make you very welcome. The gardens need time to enjoy as they are very pretty with amazing views

Thurnham Keep was our first stop after arriving at London Heathrow. What a sight for sore eyes after a 7 hour flight and a trip to the countryside. The scenic view from the atrium took our breath away. (Driving down the narrow road, Pilgrim's Way, took our breath away too, but for a different reason.). Our hostess, Amanda greeted us... More
