‘...Simply put, this place is the epitome of quiet elegance and English atmosphere...
it was exactly what we were searching for. We were and are completely captivated!
Our en suite room was spacious and filled with many special touches to make it feel
homelike, not to mention the wonderfully comfortable beds! For us, Church Gates was
the quintessential experience of "Old England". It was like stepping back in time
while still having all the 21st century comforts!. Our stay there was the absolute
highlight of our holiday in the UK.

Sissinghurst Castle Garden, Kent, England
This renowned garden was created by novelist Vita Sackville-West and her husband
Harold Nicolson. He was the designer, she the plantsman and, since her taste was
poetical and his classical, the result is a formal garden with exuberant, abundant
planting. It consists of a series of small enclosed compartments, intimate in scale
and romantic in atmosphere with outstanding design and colour through the season.
The library and tower, including Vita’s writing room, are also open to visitors.
