Immerse yourself in the grandeur of Chilston Park Country House Hotel, a Grade I listed manor once home to politicians and Lords, set within 77 acres of rural parkland in Kent. This exquisite hotel seamlessly blends history and modern luxury, filled with antiques dating back to the 17th century. Indulge in locally sourced cuisine at the 2 AA Rosette restaurant located in the original dining room or unwind by the open fires in the drawing room and bar. The 53 opulent bedrooms, each uniquely designed, offer the epitome of comfort while some feature 4-poster beds and original period details. Chilston Park boasts a romantic setting ideal for weddings and countryside breaks. Explore 77 acres of Kentish parkland surrounding the manor house or venture out to nearby attractions like Leeds Castle, Penshurst Place, Anno and Copper Rivet distilleries, and Chapel Down vineyard. Conveniently located just 12 miles from Maidstone and easily accessible via the M20, with close connections to Ashford International train station and London, this country house hotel offers an idyllic escape. Complimentary Wi-Fi and free parking are available on-site, and four-legged companions are welcome at this dog-friendly hotel.
