Details

Located in Chilham, the 600 year old Woolpack Inn offers a glimpse into hospitality of yesteryear and with a fantastic location the Inn is a must on any visit.

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. The inn is said to be haunted by the Grey lady, a friendly ghost who wanders the main building.

Visitors can choose to relax in the cosy bar, the restaurant with its 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. Parking is not a problem with availability for 25 cars to the rear of the hotel and space enough to accommodate a coach. The Woolpack provides a great stop-over destination being just 30 minutes from the channel tunnel and Ashford International.

The Inn boasts a home-cooked menu with many of the ingredients being sourced locally. Fish comes off the boat in the morning and often is on the plate by lunch service. Simple, honest food seems to be the order of the day. Local mushroom sauteed in garlic butter, finished with Stilton and cream and presented on a garlic ciabatta, real home-made steak & Spitfire Ale pie, and homemade strawberry shortcake give a hint of the homely Fayre on offer. Monday to Friday offers an all inclusive 2/3 course menu at a reasonable price.

Visitors can indulge in the local real ale of Shepherd and Neame, the Faversham brewers, and toast with a pint of Spitfire or Masterbrew whilst sitting next to the open fire. If eating in the restaurant there is a wide range of wines with a choice to suit every occasion.

The Woolpack Inn has 14 bedrooms, including two four poster rooms with rugs, roll-top baths and views to match. The double rooms are modestly priced. The room are located in an old stable block, across, garage and the main building and are all tastefully decorated in keeping with the age of the Inn. Three have access to a small, private garden area- a great plus for families or an opportunity to just sit and unwind. Dogs are welcome to stay at a charge of £6 per room per night. 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.
