The Salutation is, without a doubt, the finest place to stay in Kent. Located in the heart of Sandwich, this stunning building was built by Sir Edwin Lutyens between 1911-1912 for William, Gaspard and Henry Farrer as a weekend retreat to enable them to enjoy the coastal air.
Accommodation is set across eight luxurious bedrooms in the main manor house as well as three charming, self-contained cottages, Knightrider House, The Coach House and Gardener's Cottage, which comprise of nine bedrooms.
Having been hidden and neglected for over a decade, there has been a considerable renovation programme carried out on both the house and its gardens which are now open to the public.
Set within the town and adjacent to the River Stour, surrounded by three-and-a-half acres of delightful Lutyens and Jekyll gardens and almost entirely encircled by the old city walls of Sandwich, the house is afforded a remarkable level of privacy.
Accommodation within reflects the integrity of the house and gardens with unmatched splendour and a truly world class feel to each room. Like a fine claret leaving you with a rounded after-taste, our rooms are tailored for the connoisseur.
Both The Salutation and The Secret Gardens of Sandwich welcome dogs. Please specify at the time of booking.
Join us in The Salutation Gardens to celebrate these amazing plants with a series of talks, tours, demonstrations and dahlia fun. This year we'll be joined by renowned dahlia expert Andy Vernon, along with our Head Gardener Steve Edney. They'll be on hand to answer any questions, talk through the 150 beautiful varieties on display and judge the Dahlias in Bloom competition! There'll also be a Mexican themed BBQ available on both days between 12.30 and 3pm.
"Is this Lutyens-designed house and garden Britain's smartest Bed and Breakfast?"
