Chilston Park Hotel


Chilston Park has been rated in the top 200 hotels in the country and has been awarded four red stars by the AA for exceptional quality of accommodation and service.

An elegant 17th Century classic British country house hotel set in verdant parkland in Kent, nestled within 22 acres of gorgeous landscape. The Grade 1 listed hotel offers a wide variety of unique feature bedrooms with unique styling, enhanced by antiques, some as old as the 17th century manor house. At Chilston Park, you are more than just a number, each of the 53 bedrooms is reffered to by a name, from Mews Classic double rooms to the Manor House Master suites. 

Chilston Park’s location offers access to so many nearby things to do in Kent. Plan a day of discovery with historical buildings such as Leeds Castle and Penshurt Place just a short journey away. For the gin enthusiasts, a visit to either the Anno or The Maidstone Distilleries is a must, whilst Balfour Estate and Biddenden Vineyards offers a fantastic wine tasting experience.*

Chilston Park can provide numerous indoor and outdoor activities. These activities can either be carried out on site or at our own venue, Ashtree Farm, which is 30 minutes away. These unique experiences:
