I came across this amazing retreat while searching for somewhere to stay with my partner Paul. I had arranged a guided tour & wine tasting at Chapel Down and wanted to turn our trip into a weekend break. Even before we arrived for our 2 night stay our host Kathryn had sent us emails and called.
Note the following: 'Can I help you with anything before you get here?' 'Will you need a taxi, maybe a restaurant, I know some really good places you go to eat, I could book them for you if you like?.' 'Don't worry I can drive you to town and show you around, yes you can watch the Royal Wedding from this bar called The Woolpack!' There's so much more I could say about our hosts kindness...
Now about this stunning property.... I fell in love with it, I couldn't help but wonder if I could afford to live nearby, check out the amazing art pieces within this historic home. No more needs to be said!
The garden and grounds, beautiful so natural & tranquil, all my stress and brain fog from my city life left me. Within the grounds there's a natural pool & fitness course. You don't need pills from the doctor to de-stress, just book in with Kathryn and Chill!
I would recommend you all stay here, maybe never leave!!
We were so happy we found this beautiful place in charming Biddenden. Stayed for two nights and loved it so much! The place is stunning with a beautiful large garden and a cool excerise trail that can be booked with the lovely Kathryn (she's a really great PT and also owner of the place!) The rooms were filled with history in the walls and a lot of charm! They also had what you need for a relaxed stay: luxurious beds and linens, bathrobes and a bathroom with nice amenities. Breakfast was yummy and large and kept us going for many hours. Area around has a lot to offer from bike rides to vineyards to fun local pubs and Michelin star restaurants!
We found peace in this special place and would love to come back again and definitely book another excersise session too! Thank you Kathryn and Andy for your wonderful hospitality!
We wanted to experience the English countryside and find a place where we could eat well, work out and relax during our Kent vacation. We booked the Stede Court for two nights and got exactly what we wanted. Historically beautiful house, beautiful meadows, flowery gardens and not least its charming owners with a fantastic chef who is also a super great coach (do not miss book a power round in their own trail with K!). Can definitely recommend this place!
