The Lady and I were looking for a room above a pub in the countryside in Kent- googled as much and found the Five Bells. In the middle of nowhere, but pretty close to towns like Maidstone or Ashford, it wasn't hard to find. Checked into our room (Ortega) and blown away. Open fire by the bed, huge free standing brass bath and no TV. Down into the pub for a few pints of local beer and a glass of Kentish vino to wash down the fantastic dinner we had. Brought a wee whiskey up to the room to enjoy by the fire as we listened to the bakerlite radio before bed. We were lucky to be ensconced there during the snow and so the view of the surroundings from our room was beautiful. And the breakfast was a smasher- cracking sausages, proper bacon, locally made jam and bread and honey and everything and brilliant and tasty and friendly and helpful staff and a friendly hubbub and if you don't go there you'll never know how brilliant it is. And if you do go there, you might see me, drinking a pint of Brabourne stout looking all pleased with myself.
