"This was our second stop on our trip to Kent, Mrs Morgan recommended a scenic route to Canterbury via Chilham, we opted for a King size bedroom and enjoyed it and she booked several restaurants around town to suit our needs. We had cousins for the day and Mrs Morgan invited them to tea which led to some very lively discussions. She is a very interesting lady and we loved our stay. Cranbrook is a town we would love to go back to and there is so much to see and do." Judy K.
