Everything you need to get the most out of your stay


  • Griffin’s Head
    The award-winning Griffin’s Head, Chillenden, offers real ales, delicious food and picturesque views. In summer, you can relax in the delightful garden with wild roses and a pond, and in winter you can warm yourself in front of two blazing log fires roaring in the inglenook fireplaces. The Griffin’s Head was built as a farmhouse in 1405, during the reign of Henry IV, and remained a farm until 1766, when it became fully licensed, serving travellers on the main Canterbury-to-Deal road.
