Property Description

Set back from the tree-lined lanes of Kent, the manor house at Chilston Park is a unique property. Over the years, it has been home to MPs, writers, Lords and Viscounts. It evenreceived special mention from the Restoration diarist John Evelyn who called the house a 'sweetly watered place'. Today, these traditional comforts have been complementedby some more modern touches – but the homely spirit remains as strong as ever.Inside, the house is a subtle blend of the classic and contemporary. The walls are dotted with portraits from the house's long history and, above you, are hand painted ceilings and gleaming chandeliers. Alongside these are deep, comfy sofas and muted, modern colours. Chilston Park, however, is about more than style alone. From the moment you arrive, we want you to treat the house as your private country retreat. So while we look after your bags, explore this Grade I listed house. Kick off your shoes and flick through the paper.Challenge friends to a board game. Put your feet up and relax.While the setting of the restaurant is traditional, dining is all about easy-going enjoyment. Dishes change regularly to incorporate the best local ingredients with current favourites including sirloin of beef and Dover sole. To accompany your meal, delve into the wine list – our experienced team will be happy to guide you through our selection includingour rare whiskies and brandies. On sunny days, we offer al fresco dining on our lawns or terrace. For a light bite, head for the Marble Hall or Reading Room where we serve a selection of tempting dishes.Birthdays, anniversaries, business awards, festivities… These days there are almost countless reasons to celebrate and we have a room for every occasion. There is the intimate Library, which comfortably seats 14 or the impressive Star Room with its chandelier and views across the gardens. For larger events, there is the Fitzhammond Suite which seats 90, and the light, airy Orangery conservatory. Whichever you choose, our experienced team will make sure your evening runs smoothly – from the moment you arrive to the final sip of coffee.These stately surroundings have always been a place for business leaders and original thinkers. To this day, there remains something about the setting that seems to bring out the best in people and the occasion – whether it is an important interview or sparkling awards ceremony. The hotel offers ten meeting rooms, with highlights in the main house including the Orangery being ideal for u-shape meetings, complete with direct access to the hotel's lawns. All rooms include high speed WiFi internet access and the latest technologies.To help you make the most of your time, we will provide a specially created business menu and, on hot summer days, we serve refreshing ice cream. Known by names, not numbers, the house's rooms are as unique as its history. There are romantic four-posters, large family rooms, a range of superior rooms and many featurestunning views across the gardens and antique furnishings. As well as these classic comforts we have included the latest flat screen TVs, DVD and CD players and our veryown unique Hand Picked toiletries. After a day exploring the countryside or seeing the local sights, sink into a deep bath, choose a dish from our à la carte menu ormake a selection from the 'comfort food' menu including our seafood risotto made with locally caught fish.When staying with us you are free to do as much, or as little, as you choose. Right on your doorstep, the house's 23 acres of grounds and lake are a great place for an afternoon stroll. For dewy spring mornings or leafy autumn days, just ask and we will lend you a pair of Wellington boots. Further afield are the impressive Leeds Castle, the historic cityof Canterbury, Biddenden Vineyard and Chart Hills Golf Club. If you fancy a trip to France, the Channel is only a 40 minute drive away and Ashford Internationalonly 13 miles away.
