Visit our bed and breakfast at Stowting Near Ashford and Canterbury in Kent to enjoy Bed and Breakfast in one of the most attractive houses in Kent set in one of England's most beautiful landscapes. Enjoy the Bed and Breakfast comfort of a Manor House amidst rural tranquility yet only minutes from the Channel Tunnel Canterbury and Ashford with its Eurostar Continental rail connections and fast services to London. A Roman road, prehistoric Tumuli, a Saxon graveyard, and a Norman motte and bailey castle are all within a half mile of the house which mainly dates from the early part of the 18th century.

The thunder of the artillery barrages on the western front during World War I could be heard from here and more recently General Montgomery made this house his Headquarters in 1940 when the threat of invasion was real and when East Kent was the scene of the Battle of Britain. Now it is the home of Richard and Virginia Latham who acquired it in 1974 and have spent much of the time since restoring the house to its Georgian splendour and working in the gardens and the surrounding estate to enhance enjoyment of the enchanting landscape setting a haven for our bed and breakfast guests. Canterbury is only 10 miles away with its wonderful cathedral and many other attractions.

Virginia is a very good cook and as well as a delicious breakfast can also provide dinner for our bed and breakfast guests by arrangement. Good food is also available in the Tiger Inn and a number of other good local pubs in the village as well as excellent sea food in Hythe and Whitstable on the Kent coast. The North Downs Way and a pay and play golf course are very close to work up an appetite!
