Sat at the heart of Elham village between Canterbury & Folkestone in Kent, the Rose & Crown is a 16th Century coaching inn with six letting bedrooms.

 Originally timber framed and a Grade II listed building, the Rose & Crown has benefited from  both exterior refurbishment and internal redecoration to all of the  trade areas over the last few years.

 A large spacious property, the Rose & Crown houses a feature bar servery, multiple trade drinking and dining areas that can cater for approximately 70 covers internally and a good sized and well equipped trade kitchen. To the back of the property in the courtyard, you will find a converted stable block which includes six ensuite letting bedrooms with Freeview TVs and Tea & Coffee making facilities.

 Outside, you will find the courtyard area together with a large grassed garden and private customer car parking.

 If you are looking for large private accommodation then the Rose and Crown can also tick the boxes with five double bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen, dining room and bathroom.

 Shepherd Neame is now looking for new  tenants to take over the successful running of the Rose & Crown, so for more information or to arrange a formal viewing, please contact the Trade Recruitment Co-ordinator now on 01795 542132.
