Property description

Quiet, unique 'Hobbit Hole' Bed and Breakfast is located in Kent, known as the 'Garden of England'.

Within 8 miles is the historic City of Canterbury, (The City Shield reads: 'Mother of All England') a prolific hive of activity, including Grand Theatre, Classical Musical Concerts, Art Exhibitions and Auctions etc. etc!

This small comfortable guest house is tucked away surrounded by a peaceful rose and lavender garden, where refreshments are easily served on the garden patio! (Gratis!)

Situated an easy 23 mile drive from the Channel Tunnel (to Calais); One mile from Herne Bay seafront and Reculver Country Park. A 68 mile drive to London or by train 1 hour and 20 minutes into VictoriaStation, the centre of London.

Hobbit Hole is situated at the end of a Private Drive and has a private parking area; established for 28 years and and thus can advise on all the nearby attractions not mentioned in the travel books!.

Medieval Castles, Colourful Gardens, Golf Courses, Saxon Way Walk, Zoos and Wildlife Parks, Indeed there is plenty of sightseeing to keep one moving and entertained day after day!

At Hobbit Hole one can sleep with abandonment on the Emperor sized bed in the en-suiteTudor room; arise in the morning to enjoy a full English Breakfast, Continental or Vegetarian.
Silver tray service abounds whenever you require beverage always served with light refreshments which is gratis.

There are a variety of books at your fingertips, a Baby Grand piano if you wish to exercise your fingers, a TV room - no TVs in the bedrooms, apologies for that.

No smoking inside, in the garden is OK - 0r if it is bitterly cold and you need a puff - over the stable door which lets you out of the Kitchen!


Nearby, within a easy 12 minute walk there are several restaurants at reasonable cost. A short 5 minute gallop will take you to a first class pub' called 'The Plough' becoming well known for its excellent food, beer and entertainment.

Manager info

About: I believe that travel to various countries broadens the mind - I am well travelled! I enjoy receiving guests from the rest of the world and listening to their many stories, very often stranger than fiction!

Why Herne Bay:
Hobbit Hole - I had built in 1979, my son who is a Tolkian fan named the property, ''comfort' he said, will be the main asset!

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Peace, solitude, walking in the rose garden
