“Amidst a meticulous profusion of hydrangea, agapanthus and lavender, one would be forgiven for thinking they had stepped into a Tuscan villa when first setting eyes on this quite remarkable property. We arrived just as the lengthening afternoon sun drenched the beautiful brickwork in deep golden hues. An attractive fountain in the centre of the courtyard splashed playfully as a pair of wood pigeons cooed in almost gentle welcome to us. We knew almost instantly that this is no ordinary B&B. Georgina and Iain have created something special. The attention to detail and eye for exquisite finishes is obvious across every square inch of this property. Take for instance the drawing room of the main house. Graduated sandy tones meet bold geometric patterns and vibrant impasto to open up an inviting, even playful space. The bedrooms are indulgent. Not a sign of the ubiquitous contrived patina found in so many countryside retreats! Instead you will find fresh, bright, well appointed and above all else comfortable curation. From crisp White Company bed linen, to the freshly picked flowers changed daily, the aim is unambiguous – imbue complete restoration in the guest. A well-being theme that carries over to a splendid breakfast where the locally sourced, organic fare is accompanied by what might be the best omelette in all of Kent! Our thanks to Georgina and Iain not only for their exceptional hospitality, but simply for opening up and sharing their quite remarkable little corner of the Garden of England.” Rob Franklin, August 2020
“We so enjoyed our (too) brief stay at Capel Courtyard. What a wonderful place from which to explore this beautiful part of the country. You have created a stunning B&B – so comfortable and peaceful and absolutely delicious breakfasts. We enjoyed relaxing in the library/sitting room with its wonderful paintings and amazing collection of books.Being avid garden lovers, it was lovely to have a such beautiful gardens to wander through. Your dinner suggestions were spot on and we simply must return to go to The Smallholding – and get some honey! Thank you once again for your wonderful hospitality. We have been to many B&Bs in the area but Capel Courtyard tops them all.” Sheena and Stephen, August 2020
Stayed here in the Clockhouse with 3 friends. It was exactly what we all needed. A beautiful property with all details thought of in a stunning setting. Georgina couldn’t have been more helpful and her restaurant recommendations were spot on (The Poet at Matfield was real treat).
Nothing was too much trouble for Georgina, who kindly supplied crockery, cutlery and a wine cooler for an evening in on the Friday of our stay.
The bedding, accessories and toiletries were all lovely White Company products and the kitchenette was supplied with fresh milk, high quality tea and coffee etc. Highly recommend
