Welcome to Chilston Park Hotel, Lenham, Kent

A country house hotel in Kent

Over the years Chilston Park has been home to eminent politicians, writers, lords and viscounts. Today it is a classic British country house hotel 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 and features 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.
