About The Little Silver Country Hotel

Little Silver is a delightful privately owned hotel, set in the heart of the ‘Garden of England’. Our personable service and attention to detail will ensure your stay is second to none.   You may choose to relax in front of the roaring open fire in the comfortable lounge, or step out onto the terrace to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the tranquil gardens. Our renowned Oaks Restaurant is always on hand to offer a carefully selected and locally sourced menu, all within a welcoming environment.   Boasting 16 individually furnished ensuite bedrooms (including two ground floor mobility bedrooms), you will have plenty to choose from in this quiet corner of Kent. For that special occasion, why not consider one of the newly appointed contemporary attic suites, or choose a more traditional setting with one of the four poster bedrooms.

Something for everyone

Set in the heart of the Weald of Kent, the hotel enjoys the convenience of interesting, traditional Kentish Towns, such as Tenterden, Hythe and Rye, which used to form part of The Cinque Ports, whilst the beautiful surrounding countryside offers a wide range of outdoor pursuits.   Within a short drive you can visit National Trust gardens, country homes and castles, such as Sissinghurst Gardens, Leeds Castle and Bodiam Castle. Ellen Terry’s is only a short drive away in Smallhythe Place and for more adventurous activities; Bewl Water and Bedgebury Pinetum are also close.   Whether you choose to meander around the old cobbled streets of Rye, or take a walk along the golden sands of Camber, Little Silver Country Hotel is the perfect base for you to explore and enjoy Kent.

Our history

Built in 1935 as a home, Little Silver became a hotel during the 1980’s. Named by its original owners after a family trip to a village of the same name in Devon, Little Silver has always maintained its reputation as a home away from home.   Having been taken over by the current owners, Oliver and Christine Johnston in 1998, many improvements have been made to the hotel to enhance the service offered, whilst maintaining the sense of history and provision of home comforts. Extending the hotel considerably with a new extension in 2004-2005, a stunning new Bridal Suite was also created, securing Little Silver’s position as one of Kent’s top wedding venue destinations.   Greatly loved by locals and returning customers, Little Silver prides itself on remembering its heritage and the story of its making. A book containing the full history of the hotel can be found in the lounge for guests to enjoy.
