Edwardian, Georgian, Jacobean - hotels from every era and set beside the sea, in stunning urban settings or deep in lush greenery, making a hotel stay as varied as you wish! Outstanding places to visit include Sissinghurst with Vita Sackville-West’s famous garden; the moated Hever Castle where Anne Boleyn grew up and where Anne of Cleves lived after her divorce from Henry VIII; Knole House, a beautiful Elizabethan/Jacobean mansion once owned by Henry VIII; Leeds Castle, stunningly set on a lake near Maidstone; medieval Penshurst Place, birthplace of Sir Philip Sydney; Ightham Mote, a picturesque house with 14th-century origins.
