Bonjour lecteurs! If you are in Kent, stop by the gorgeous Hever Castle & Gardens. The famous place always has some cool events for families to enjoy and the Halloween season did not disappoint. We were kindly invited to stay at the sumptuous Hever Castle Luxury Bed And Breakfast for Halloween last week and we had a lovely time.
Stay at Hever Castle Luxury Bed And Breakfast
Anne Boleyn’s childhood home offers more than a stunning castle and beautiful grounds you can enjoy with your family. Did you know that you could also stay at Hever Castle Luxury Bed And Breakfast?
Situated in the Astor Wing and Anne Boleyn Wing of Hever Castle, Hever Castle’s B&B offers 28 luxury bedrooms.
Whatever you are up to (romantic weekend with the hubby or family fun with the kids), there is something for you!
En plus, rooms start from £145 during the November Flash Sale! So you would be silly not to make the most of it!
Arrival at the Hever Castle Luxury Bed And Breakfast
It was very easy to find the entrance to the B&B. It is on the side of the castle and you can use the secure car park for your stay.
As soon as we arrived, we had a look at the Astor Wing with its beautiful panelled lounge.
It has a lovely relaxing atmosphere with books and magazines for you to enjoy.
And if you fancy, you can also book an Afternoon Tea in the gorgeous premises.
Our Tydeman’s Room
We then discovered our room. With its en-suite bathroom facilities, the bedroom was truly unique.
With a view on the park, it was rather luminous and very elegantly decorated. We had so much space for us all.
Baba absolutely loved our bed and tested it personally as soon as he arrived. But a room had also been prepared for him with a sofa-bed.
I can tell you that Baba was well chuffed to have his own room and his very own TV!
When you book a room, you automatically get complimentary access to the Castle and Gardens.
So we decided to enjoy a stroll as soon as we arrived.
Tudor Towers Adventure Playground
The famous Tudor Towers Adventure Playground was obviously a top priorité for Baba so we headed over there.
Once you get out of the Hever Castle Luxury Bed And Breakfast, you follow a quiet path next to a local river and you can directly enter the gardens by the side.
Surrounded by all the autumnal colours, the entire place was truly beautiful.
We had a blast at the playground.
Halloween Fun at Hever Castle
But the place had it all sorted with fun activities during Half-Term:
- fancy dress competition
- face painting
- lots of Halloween decorations all over the park
- even spooky storytelling!
There was something for everyone.
Hever Castle & Gardens always has a lovely programme according to the season. You can even go and enjoy a show that is on.
The team did a remarkable job with the decorations. It was spooky everywhere!
Pumpkins, spiders and witches were all over the place.
You could even go on a scarecrow scavenger hunt. So fun for kids!
Enjoying The Wildlife
But it is not only about games!
I love the way kids can interact so naturally with animals there.
Bien sûr, you must make sure that they are careful but ducks and swans walk around the park freely so that kids can have a true feeling of nature.
And when we went back to our room, we made the most of the back garden.
Baba helped out a bit restructuring the local pumpkins and we were off to bed!
After enjoying a (so!) peaceful night in my bed made for a queen, it was lovely to wake up with such a view.
It was time to have our petit-déjeuner.
And that time around again, Hever Castle Luxury Bed And Breakfast totally wowed us!
You literally eat your food at a table looking out across the orchard to the Castle!
It is so luminous and the food is delicious.
You have a great choice with the buffet, but you can order some hot food if you fancy.
I went for Eggs Royale as a treat while Baba enjoyed some pain au chocolat and other treats.
It was truly beautiful to eat our breakfast with a view of the castle. We could see the gardeners at work before the castle was opened to the public. This kind of VIP treatment is totally up to my taste!
The staff was very nice and the service was fast. A lady at another table was actually celebrating her birthday and the entire team came up with a cake to sing ‘Joyeux Anniversaire’! How sweet!
Rediscovering the Castle
We then went straight away to the castle.
I have already visited it in the past, but I forgot how big it actually was.
Greeted by its beautiful red wall, we came in and I got dreaming about a drawing-room like this…
Baba loved following the tour with another family present at the time and I reckon he dreamed about being a little prince too!
The Gardens & Fun Outdoors
Once over, we made the most of the outdoors and all the fun that Hever Castle & Gardens’ offers for kids.

We carried on our adventures surrounded by many beautiful couleurs.
Walking around and splashing in the puddles was so much fun, especially in such beautiful surroundings!
Hever Castle & Gardens is so big you can enjoy a full day out without the kids being bored a second!
And despite some rain, we had so much fun discovering nature.
Other Little Things You Don’t Want To Miss Out
We decided to stop by the café for a little Halloween cupcake before heading to the shop.
You can there start your Christmas shopping and don’t miss out the mini-exhibition at the back of the magasin.
You can see castles over the years.
I must admit that some of the models got me inspired for our own house 🙂
