Inns in Kent
Welcome to our selection of hotels and inns in Kent. Kent is known as the 'Garden of England' with its acres of orchards and hop gardens. Hops are an integral ingredient in the brewing process, and are dried in oast houses. These iconic buildings dot the landscape and add to the charm of this part of England. Shepherd Neame is Britain's oldest brewer and has been brewing beer in Faversham, Kent since 1698.
Kent also boasts some of the most photographed castles in England, such as Hever and Leeds. The county town is Canterbury with its famous Cathedral. And for many visitors, their first sight of England is of the white cliffs at Dover. There are also coastal towns and resorts such as Whitstable, Deal, Broadstairs and Margate.
With its easy proximity to London, Kent makes an ideal holiday or short break destination. But why choose to stay at an inn in Kent? Perhaps for the warm welcome, great food, good company and comfortable accommodation, set in a unique property. Unlike chain hotels with their identikit rooms, each inn has its own personality, character and ambiance!
