Our Inspector's view

Located in the quiet village of Ickham, this village pub is a mix of traditional – exposed beams and roaring wood fires – and modern with up-to-date and stylish touches. Each of the four bedrooms has stylish decor, modern fabrics and contemporary furnishings that offer guests high quality and comfort – king-sized beds, TVs, DAB radios, tea- and coffee-making facilities and complimentary toiletries come as standard. The same daily menu is served in the restaurant ‘The Den’, the conservatory overlooking the garden and the bar with its warming fire in the winter. From the Duke William, it is just a short drive into Canterbury.

About the area

Discover Kent

The White Cliffs of Dover are an English icon – the epitome of our island heritage and sense of nationhood. They also mark the point where the Kent Downs AONB, that great arc of chalk downland stretching from the Surrey Hills and sometimes known as ‘the Garden of England’, finally reaches the sea. This is a well-ordered and settled landscape, where chalk and greensand escarpments look down into the wooded Weald to the south.

Many historic parklands, including Knole Park and Sir Winston Churchill’s red-brick former home at Chartwell, are also worth visiting. Attractive settlements such as Charing, site of Archbishop Cranmer’s Tudor palace, and Chilham, with its magnificent half-timbered buildings and 17th-century castle built on a Norman site, can be found on the Pilgrim’s Way, the traditional route for Canterbury-bound pilgrims in the Middle Ages. 

In the nature reserves, such as the traditionally coppiced woodlands of Denge Wood and Earley Wood, and the ancient fine chalk woodland of Yockletts Bank high on the North Downs near Ashford, it is still possible to experience the atmosphere of wilderness that must have been felt by the earliest travellers along this ancient ridgeway.
