Donnington Manor Hotel – 1
“You feel so very far, far away from the thronged streets of London (35 min by train). If Kent is something of a shortcut to Eden, this is your charmed hideaway. Take a peek…”
Standing in the Sevenoaks district – a short 10-minute drive (less than 3 miles) from the traditional Kentish town – Donnington Manor Hotel welcomes you with 15th-century pedigree and 21st-century hospitality. The centuries-old and the ultra-modern. Once owned by the sheriff of Kent (in the reign of Edward III), Donnington Manor wears its history well.
Step inside and there is this same sense of time playing out against itself – contemporary artwork, specially commissioned for the hotel, sits alongside canopied porter’s chairs upholstered in a full-bodied red – used in medieval England to envelop the gatekeeper of an estate.
Your bedroom comes fully equipped with free Wi-Fi and air-conditioning. Sprawl out on your super-king bed, sit straight-backed at your writing desk, or stand (gleefully) under your rainfall shower…. Decisions, decisions… Enjoy Italian cuisine at acclaimed Osteria Chartwell, or order a cocktail or two in the high-octane Spectrum. There’s 24-hour room service to boot, should you feel ravenous at the witching hour. (We sometimes do.)
Tread lightly, there are world-famous heritage sites and glorious evergreen gardens all about you. Kent is England’s oldest county, after all. The North Downs Way rolls alongside the hotel, and the National Trust’s Knole House, crowned by 1,000 acres of rippling deer park, lies at the heart of Sevenoaks. Take a leaf-crunching walk through woodland, or a cliff-top hike with the taste of salt-spray on your lips; the Kent coast is a mere 30 minutes by car.
Make for the Garden of England. Of Eden. Take a peek inside Britain’s treasure trove. You’ll find a place of peace here. A place to unwind and unburden. What else you find, is entirely up to you…
