The Salutation gardens

The Salutation

A short hop from the capital, a stone’s throw from the continent, we are situated just where we want to be.

Ensconced within acres of award-winning gardens, the medieval town of Sandwich overbrimmed with history just beyond its old flint walls, The Salutation is at once a country retreat and a gateway to the vibrant and storied towns of the Kentish coast. Edwin Lutyens’ private-house masterpiece has been completely re-invigorated through successive restorations and now opens its doors as a luxury hotel, restaurant and gardens.

Eat with us, drink with us, sleep with us. Stroll around our green paths and lose yourself in our herbaceous borders. Explore the area or never leave the grounds. Take Afternoon Tea on the terrace. Toast by the Drawing Room fire. Dine at the Chef’s Table. Wallow in Bed.

Make yourself at home.
