Located in the Garden of England just off the A28 between Ashford and Canterbury is the chocolate box village of Chilham, where you can find a real gem; the 600 year old Woolpack Inn is nestled at the bottom of the hill leading in the shadow of the Norman castle. With its vast oak beams and inglenook fireplaces it offers a glimpse into hospitality of yesteryear.

Visitors can choose to relax in the cosy bar, the restaurant with is glorious bay window and country lane views or the patio courtyard where they will find the olive tree which has been in situ since the inn was built.

The Woolpack Inn has 14 bedrooms, including two four poster rooms with roll-top baths and views to match. The rooms are modestly priced from £50 exclusive of breakfast. Some rooms are located across the road from the main buildings in the old stable block and are all tastefully decorated. Three have access to a small, private garden area - a great plus for families or an opportunity to just sit and unwind.

The family run Woolpack combines a fantastic location and great hospitality to make a memorable trip, a must on any visit to the South East.

    “needs improvement”

    bedroom had serious rising/ penetrating damp, causing paint to peel off wall. This was repainted on our second day with no warning of wet paint, so my wife got paint over her. WE should not have had to experience that at all. We booked in plus dog. First night there was a table booked to us in the bar area; Very Good. We understand that dogs cannot go into dining-room! Second night, after the paint episode, there was a flat refusal to provide us with a booked table in the bar. I remonstrated, stating that it had been perfectly OK on the previous evening, but no change. For heavens sake, we were actually staying with you, so it seems completely unreasonable to refuse us the booking; we were so furious that we almost went out to eat elsewhere as a matter of principle. Just not good enough. Staff generally most accommodating and pleasant, but various menus were posted, although food not available. Attention to detail would add to one's experience greatly. You have a beautifully located pub, so more care would lift it substantially. Keep up the good work, as we enjoyed ourselves, notwithstanding our hassles. We have written to the Greens
