About Chafford Park


With an extensive history dating back to 1740 and beyond, this Georgian manor offers a blend of traditional English touches and luxurious, boutique style. Set on a private estate and close to the postcard-perfect town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, Chafford Park has opened its doors to discerning guests looking for an authentic country house experience.

The front door opens into the main hall, from which you can access the study, dining room, and the drawing room with French doors opening onto the garden, and a piano just begging to be played by expert hands. Another door leads you into the snug, with its wonderful inglenook and log burner, an invitingly cosy room to curl up in on a winter weekend. The traditional country kitchen is accessed internally from the snug and dining rooms, and also has a separate front entrance - ideal when returning from a muddy walk to warm up by the Aga!

Upstairs there are four sumptuous bedrooms filled with luxurious bedding, antiques and stripped floorboards. There is an en-suite to the master, and family bathroom with roll-top bath overlooking your private gardens.

Full of detail, character and charm, this self-catering manor house is a joy to discover - from the baby grand piano, the huge inglenook fireplace in the snug room, the exquisite and individual bedrooms, to the extensive garden with ornamental box hedging, wild meadow and its own private pond.

Chafford Park is also a wedding and events venue and can be booked in combination with its two gorgeous wood-clad barns. The Hop Barn is licensed for wedding ceremonies, while the Granary is licensed for music and is a perfect setting for receptions, events or the celebration of a big birthday or anniversary. For something a little different, The Woodland can be booked for celebrant ceremonies, and the Picking Field can be used as a venue for marquees. A wedding and events planner will also be on hand to assist you with organising your special day. For more information, please contact our Bookings Team who will be happy to help.
