Baillie Hall

Effortless English elegance

Baillie Hall

Effortless English elegance

A beautiful manor house

In the garden of England

line

Opening its doors to guests for the first time in 2018, Baillie Hall is a stunning 14th century manor house that has been exquisitely decorated and furnished. It’s as fine and beautiful a setting as you could possibly imagine for an intimate wedding, a family gathering or a corporate retreat.

Set in the heart of the Kentish countryside, Baillie Hall is a simply stunning country house, inside and out.  Relax in the sunny morning room, eat together in the wood-panelled dining room or retire to the sumptuous bedrooms, and you will appreciate the thoughtfully decorated interiors.

Outside, wander through the formally laid gardens, enjoy a spot of croquet on the lawn, or watch the sun set from the historic, timbered Kentish bower. In May and June, the 100-year-old wisteria that adorns the walls of the house bursts into cascades of sweetly scented blossom.

Convenient for London and indeed, Paris, Baillie Hall sleeps up to 10 guests in five spacious bedrooms with two further double bedrooms in the Oast House, an equally well-appointed, self-contained annexe.

Prices from £3,745

Based on a 3-night weekend stay.

Accommodates 14

In 7 bedrooms; 5 in the main house, and 2 in the Oast

In beautiful Kent

Beside Kent’s impressive Leeds Castle Estate.

 

Lordly lodgings: Is this historic Kentish manor the loveliest country house stay in England? – The Telegraph

An oasis of relaxed elegance

For your special gathering

line

The traditionally English morning room, drawing room, dining room and kitchen are stylishly designed using British furnishings and fabrics. From the hand-painted De Gourney wallpaper in the morning room to the traditional black and white tiles in the kitchen and pantry, it’s clear that every detail has been considered to complement and enhance the beauty of the ancient manor house. The classic styling sits beautifully with stunning period features, such as the medieval laver, a stone basin in the entrance hall.

Celebrate your wedding vows in the oak-panelled ceremony room or beneath the romantic bower in the gardens, and then move through to the library or drawing room for Champagne and music. Or join close friends or business associates for a weekend or midweek break, your every need attended to by your housekeeper and your personal chef.

Outside, the beautiful wisteria-clad house is surrounded by formal lawns and gardens that offer views of the Kent countryside, and an elegant terrace – perfect for Pimm’s – runs the length of the house. Here, your party can spill onto the lawns in a setting that is quintessentially English.

Bedrooms in calming colours

With views across the Kent Downs

line

From the powder blue and soft lilac walls of the Master Bedroom, which hint at the natural colours of the wisteria outside, to the soft romantic pinks, majestic golds and soothing greens of the other rooms, upstairs at Baillie Hall is a place of peace and tranquillity.

Each of the five en-suite bedrooms in the main house and the two additional rooms in the Oast House, are dominated by super king or king size zip-linked beds, made up with sumptuous bedlinen, cool in the summer and snug in the winter. The luxury en-suite bathrooms invite you to pamper yourself, and the cool marble floors add a 1920s-style glamour.

Deep-set Gothic arched windows open out to views of the manor gardens, with the gentle green vista of the Kent Downs beyond. In spring, the scent of wisteria drifts through the open windows and the sunlight dances on the polished antique surfaces of the furniture. Each room has its own unique character  and all are restful and romantic. A truly beautiful country house to rent.

Spend long, lazy days

Discovering Kent’s natural beauty

line

If you can tear yourself away from Baillie Hall, nearby Leeds Castle describes itself as ‘the loveliest castle in the world’ and who are we to disagree? Further afield, Baillie Hall is on the edge of the Kent Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Here you can pick up the North Downs Way and take in some of the most spectacular views in England.

Kent has 11 National Nature Reserves and the mudflats and marshes at Swale, Elmley and Stodmarsh are birdwatching heaven. For wildlife on a different scale, Howletts Wild Animal Park boasts the largest herd of elephants in the UK!

The coast and estuaries are within a short drive; visit Chatham to explore the Historic Dockyard, dine on oysters at Whitstable, or head to the Blue Flag beach at Botany Bay, just past Margate. Inland, Canterbury, with its magnificent cathedral and rich history is the jewel in the Kent crown, and a must-see while you’re staying in the area.

At Baillie House, England’s garden is on your doorstep and your doorstep is at the entrance a beautiful medieval manor house, a combination that’s hard to beat.
