Property Information

You will witness the grandeur as soon as you spot the tall chimneys between the trees. Every room is flooded with light, and as it is encompassed within the Kent countryside it is just the ticket for a family getaway anytime of the year. This immaculate home shows off a fusion of antique classics and modernity to make your stay as indulgent as possible, from the large solid oak dining table where you can enjoy a delicious three course meal cooked by a private chef, to the beautifully kept private gardens where you can sample your homemade cocktails, tutored by our skilled mixologists.

Step into the relaxing hot tub after a long stroll around the countryside with your friends, it is the perfect way to end your day. You will be spoilt for choice between the five gorgeous bedrooms to retire in.

Hot Tub & Living Spaces

On the ground floor at Dover House you will discover a stunningly appointed kitchen with the solid oak dining table seating up to twelve guests. The sitting room boasts cosy sofas around an original open fireplace. You can store your coats, bags and shoes in the convenient cloakroom and you will also find a washer and dryer if you are staying for an extended time. Outside, the round sitting area is the perfect setting for a long chat over a bottle (or two) of prosecco, and this overlooks the bubbling outdoor hot tub and courtyard area, where there is space to dine al-fresco if you wish. Champagne, chocolates, juices, biscuits and more can all be enjoyed from the luxury and carefully considered welcome hamper provided upon arrival, and if arranged prior to your stay you may enjoy use of the outdoor pool on the grounds of the manor. For now, relish the privacy of your own wing, gather around the TV on late nights with cheese and wine, the venue not to be missed! You and your closest family and friends will look back with the fondest memories of a relaxed and reviving retreat.
