You’ll find this special B&B nestled in the heart of East Kent - at the crown of the Elham Valley. A stylish, cosy cottage bed and breakfast, offering luxurious accommodation situated in beautiful countryside and yet within easy access to the City of Canterbury (less than 5 miles), Channel Tunnel terminal, ferry ports and the coast. Beechborough is an ideal base for you to enjoy walking, cycling, sightseeing or… just relaxing!

 

Walk the Elham Valley Way

VISIT

We’re perfectly placed for access to Dover (13 miles) and Eurotunnel (15 miles). Beechborough B&B offers a great stop-over, or base to explore the historic City of Canterbury with its breathtaking cathedral, restaurants, bars, shops and everything else that a City has to offer. Our bed & breakfast accommodation sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), close to the historic Elham Valley railway line (now obsolete) & on the beautiful Elham Valley Way which passes right past our local pub The Mermaid Inn (CAMRA Listed).

Enjoy a tasty breakfast

EAT

We’re passionate about quality and supporting the local community. We offer good quality locally sourced ingredients for our breakfast - the pork sausages & bacon comes from happy Saddleback Pigs thanks to Dave based at the Lower Hardres Farm Shop. He also supplies excellent beef and locally reared lamb. The shop also stocks local jams & chutneys made by The Wooden Spoon based in Wye, PYO, cakes, biscuits & produce - well worth a visit when you are here. As too is our local pub which serves freshly cooked food - see their website for opening times.

RELAX

Our double rooms offer king size beds, dressed with quality Egyptian cotton bed linen. Duvets and pillows are mixed goose and duck down (fibre based available on request) - our aim is to provide a good nights rest on a quality mattress & a breakfast served with love. Each room has been refurbished to a high standard & bathrooms offer a touch of luxury that is always welcome when you are away from home. All rooms overlook the garden & The Elham Valley Way. We come highly recommended, but don’t take our word for it, read our reviews!

Our Reviews

It’s always reassuring to know that we’re doing the right thing... but don’t just take our word for it. Our visitors are happy to share our little secret.

"My husband & I needed a night close to Eurotunnel, Folkestone & Canterbury, having read all the good reviews we decided to book. And everything they said was true - a modern cozy B&B in a quaint village with Lizzie’s excellent breakfast! Very welcoming and we will definitely be coming back!! Thank you for such a lovely visit and the amazing car pictures!”

Daniel & Amy, France

“We stayed at Beechborough for two days and it was great! Bishopsbourne is a very nice little village, real old English. Lizzie made us feel very welcome, the rooms are great and very well decorated, clean, super bathroom. Breakfast was the best I’ve ever had. Lizzie & Rudi even walked with us to our course in Kingston. I would truly recommend this B&B.”

Martine, The Netherlands

“Thank you so much. We had a delightful stay and a smooth journey home. It was amazing to discover such a tiny, beautiful, and secluded backwater, yet having a fine CAMRA village pub within a minute's walk, and all a mile off the A2. For historians the little village church has historic associations and stained glass from several periods, some of it inscribed in Old Dutch.

The welcome was wonderful, the house exceedingly comfortable and the breakfast regal. We were bowled over by your practical helpfulness in giving directions to everything from good walking routes (with notes) to excellent eating places, secluded or lively to taste, plus first class maps to find them in minutes by car, or slowly and pleasantly on foot.

Beechborough is one of the best B&B places we have ever visited, and it is in the least spoilt country village we have ever seen. We'll certainly recommend it, and try to return soon!”

Dr & Mrs Howell, Derbyshire

“Our 2-night stay with Lizzie and Martin was second to none in our experience of B&B, with everything living up to the descriptions on their website and also the reviews by previous guests. We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived, and very much at ease throughout our stay - this is a comfortable environment, in every respect. 

Lizzie's light supper, on the first evening, was beautifully cooked and presented, as were the breakfasts.  Martin went the extra mile on our second evening by looking up info on the internet so that we could organise our outing to the cinema and restaurant- nothing was too much trouble, but neither were we overwhelmed with attention - the perfect balance. Thank you both for a lovely experience - hope to see you again.”

John & Ros, Dorset

“As we pulled up outside Beechborough I knew I was in for a treat. Lizzie & Martin were lovely hosts and made us feel very much at home. Staying here definitely sets a high benchmark in B&B standards. To really appreciate the peacefulness and the surrounding countryside a long weekend is highly recommended.”

Amanda & Andrew, London

“We were the first guests at the newly refurbished B&B. From the warm welcome, to the happy departure, everything was 5* including an excellent room and silver service breakfast. We could not find fault and our hosts made us not only feel at home but treated us as friends. We shall most definitely be staying there again.”

Sheila & John, Kent

“I’ve eaten many fish pies during my lifetime, but I have to say yours was the best!”

Peter, Hythe
