B&B In Pretty 17th Century Trad. Kentish Farmhouse In Peaceful Rural Location



Updated: 18-Apr-2016
B&B Farmhouse in Charcott, Nr. Penshurst & Chiddingstone, Tonbridge, Kent - Delicious Breakasts + Home Made Bread & Free-range Eggs. Good Local Pub For Evening Meals 5 Min Walk

Discover one of Kent’s "hidden places" yet still be within easy reach of many of it's most popular attractions with this friendly family-run B&B. Within minutes of Penshurst Place, Hever Castle, Chartwell and Chiddingstone, it is surrounded by woodland and luscious open countryside providing great opportunities for walkers and visitors to explore this part of the Weald. Guests are free to come and go as they please and have the use of a small sitting room (the old bakehouse, still with the original dome-shaped brick bread-oven) plus colour TV for evening relaxation. Breakfasts, cooked on the kitchen Aga, are large and varied and, as far as possible, locally sourced and organic. Hosts Ginny and Nick are relaxed and hospitable and are always happy to answer guests' queries regarding local features.

For evening meals, the tiny Greyhound pub is a gentle stroll down the farm drive and has an excellent and reasonably priced menu.

We have 4 resident cats and our very quiet and friendly black Labrador, Fen. Visiting dogs can generally be accepted during the summer months provided they are cat and chicken friendly and prior notice is given.
