Hereford Oast

Ashford, Kent
Bed & Breakfast

Look out over Kentish fields from your bed, drink in the peace.... A charming, friendly oasthouse B&B with a garden full of birds


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


Jack the Jack Russell will meet you, swiftly followed by Suzy who’ll bring you tea and cake in the garden: sheer heaven in summer. The 1876 oast house, set back from a country road and gazing over fields, has become the loveliest B&B. Downstairs is the dining room, as unique as it is round. Upstairs is the guest room, sunny, fresh and bright, with a rural view; the small bath has an overhead shower. As for the village – white-clapboard cottages, pubs, fine church – it’s the prettiest in Kent. Sausages from Pluckley, homemade jams and good coffee set you up for cultured jaunts: Leeds Castle, Sissinghurst, Great Dixter… all nearby.

We would thoroughly recommend Hereford Oast from the warm welcome from Jack and Suzy with tea and cake in the beautiful garden through a good night's sleep in the lovely room to the delicious breakfast including eggs from the hens we had to avoid as we drove in. Everything was of a high standard and Suzy paid attention to detail. We stayed two nights and visited Sissinghurst Castle, Leeds Castle, The Kent and East Sussex Steam Railway, and Great Dixter, all within easy reach by car. We ate at The Bell both evenings and would recommend that too. All in all, we had a lovely time.


We experienced a warm welcome, comfortable room, and a fabulous breakfast. Highly recommended.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Suzy Hill

  • Sissinghurst Castle; owned and maintained by the National Trust is among the most famous gardens in England and is within 10 minutes drive. These beautiful gardens are open from March to October, the Cafe, Woodland and Lakeside walks throughout the year.
  • Great Dixter Gardens, another famous garden, is less than 30 minutes away, full of wonderful riotous colours, it is one of the most experimental, exciting garden designs anywhere. A must see! Open April to October with the lovely nursery always open.
  • Historic Rye Town, a perfect medieval gem, with shops, cute cafes and restaurants just over half an hour away. Nearby is the great sandy beach at Camber Sands, and fascinating Dungeness with Lighthouse, trendy Fish Shack, Jarmans Cottage and Steam Railway.
  • Kent is full of wonderful Castles to visit! Lovely moated Leeds Castle, with all its attractions, and the National Trust's romantic Scotney Castle are only 20 minutes away. Don't miss Dover Castle's secret wartime tunnels and 1000 exiting years of history.
  • Why not just wander - those beautiful Kent villages and Oast dotted countryside. Pretty pubs and lovely walks wherever you look! Try the free tasting at famous Chapeldown winery at Tenterden, near to Ellen Terry's House or the market at foodie Faversham.
  • No visit to Kent is complete without a day in the historic city of Canterbury, with its Cathedral, city walls and ancient sites, river trips and bustling shops and markets. Fashionable Tunbridge Wells for smart shopping, tea and cocktails - a real treat!
