An ancient manor house with four-posters and fireplaces, Kent barn suites, cosy stable block snugs, hidden cabin hideaways serving native Kentish food. This place nestles in wild open landscape in White Cliffs Country. Hotel Dover Kent.

Set in the glorious heart of windswept White Cliffs Country in the picturesque hamlet of Westcliffe lies the grade II listed ancient manor of Wallett's Court.

It is a place with a soul that over the centuries has been loved and lived in by many & history oozes from every nook and cranny.

Look closely at the stunning carvings and frescos in the hallways and corridors, piece together the historic clues and you'll discover the remnants of an early 15th Century Wealden Hall house hidden by a Jacobean restoration.

SLEEP... Upstairs in the manor there are three oak-beamed bedrooms with four-posters and fireplaces and there are a dozen or so Stable Block Snugs, Cosy Cowshed Boltholes & Kentish Barn Suites in the converted timber-framed barns huddled around the ancient manor house in the rolling acres of landscaped gardens and chalk downland wildflower meadows.

EAT... At the heart of the hotel is the kitchen. It's really where it all started for us... For decades we've been using the freshest and finest of ingredients from right on our own doorstep. From fruit, herbs and vegetables from our kitchen garden to locally-landed fish from the day boats of Deal to wild game from the woodlands of the Stour Valley. Yes, we've been awarded accolades for our cooking, but we don't do what we do for that, it's for the love of producing delicious food from great raw ingredients that are predominantly native to Kent.

SPA... Then there's The Garden of England Spa... It's a place that has evolved naturally, influenced by our very experienced therapists who offer body treatments to restore well-being and peace of mind. It's a place to relax that is less clinical and more natural with an indoor pool, hot-tub, sauna & steam room, epitomised by the walk across the meadow and into the woods to the cabins for therapies.

CABINS... "Quirky and Kooky"... Are two words that have been used to describe our more unusual places to stay in the grounds of the hotel. For something a little unusual you could choose to stay in The Stone-Stilt Staddle Hut. Continue Reading >>>

We are a family-run English, Country House Hotel - the British equivalent of those homely places in wonderful surroundings you sometimes chance across when driving through continental Europe and wonder why you have never heard of us before. And if you are headed for the continent, then we are the last stop on your way, just ten minutes drive from the Port of Dover.

We are not corporate, nor part of a laminated chain. You will not find a conference room, nor a screen for a Powerpoint ™ presentation…but if you wish to do business, we can find you a condusive space. (We have a quiet lounge bar, rooms with free wi-fi, but also have a cabin in the woods for brainstorms and another for stress-busting massages)

What you will find, is a homely, personal welcome.

Above all, you will discover the finest food outside London, the best of Kentish produce, prepared and cooked by a kitchen that boasts a Michelin Star winner and alumni of Marco Pierre White's kitchen and Rick Stein's school of cuisine.

Our food, like our music and staff, are locally sourced, native and in season. Some of it is rustic in the best sense, while others the nadir of sophistication and urbanity. We will always have the best fish, flesh and fowl the county has to offer at a price that won't scare the horses..

We are lucky to be located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, in one of Kent's most historic buildings, built around a Wealden Hall that, since the 12th Century, has hosted everyone from Crusading Princes to Winston Churchill. Despite our pedigree, we are not stuffy, we've only been here for forty years.

Of course, you may dress for dinner and we will provide the starched napery, discretion and service fit for a King.  Equally, you can keep your jeans on for dinner, roll up your shirtsleeves and eat exactly the same food at our rustic Chef's table. Champagne or beer to accompany - your choice, our cellar holds deep stock of both.

We aim to make Wallett's Court a home from home, but better; a relaxing respite with wonderful food, refreshments in relaxing company and surroundings.

Welcome to Wallett's and make yourself at home.
