Property info

Over the years Chilston Park Hotel has been home to eminent politicians, writers, lords and viscounts. Today it is a classic British country house hotel in Lenham, Kent with style and charm to spare but perhaps the most remarkable aspect of this four red star hotel is its unique styling, enhanced by antiques, some as old as the 17th century manor house. Set back from tree-lined lanes, the manor house at Chilston Park sits in 22 acres of parkland, making it a spectacular Ashford wedding venue featuring a two AA Rosette restaurant. The Grade I listed hotel offers a wide variety of unique feature bedrooms, from mews Classic double rooms to the Manor House master suites. The hotel offers the ideal setting for an intimate break, a romantic wedding or an inspiring meeting venue close to London. Whether you are planning your first visit to us or are one of our many returning guests, we encourage you to treat the house as your own. So relax and enjoy these historic surroundings and allow us to deliver the high standards of guest care we pride ourselves upon.

Neighborhood info

There are so many things to see and do in the beautiful Weald of Kent, and either of our two Hand Picked Hotels makes a great base for a long weekend. South of the Thames Estuary between London and the Channel and covering the south east corner of England, with the chalk ridge of the North Downs running centrally from east to west, at the heart of Kent lies the majestic city of Canterbury, crowned by its medieval cathedral. From historical buildings such as Leeds Castle and Hever Castle to stately homes in Knole, a well-preserved Roman Villa at Lullingstone to glorious gardens like Penshurst Place, and the stunning Georgian spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, not to mention a whole heap of stuff for children to do, Kent offers a wealth of exciting attractions for the whole family.
