Countryside retreat – July availability!

If you are looking for a peaceful, countryside retreat to relax and unwind, we have the perfect spot! Between Preston and Wingham our converted barn is nestled in over 20 acres of land with surrounding woodlands. With the Little Stour at the end of the field, you can be sure to see an abundance of wildlife and enjoy beautiful walks. It’s a bird watchers paradise!
The barn has been finished to a high standard and includes a wood burner for cosy, chilly nights and a luxurious swim spa for total relaxation.
If you wish to combine Bessie’s Afternoon Tea with your stay, we will deliver it to your door or have it awaiting your arrival.

We have 2 weeks available in July and some weekday availability from September

Festive deliveries

Our festive treats can be delivered right to your door – it’s free delivery in Thanet / Sandwich and surrounding villages.

We will be delivering until 1pm in 24th December. We are busy Christmas week so please do place your orders early if you can.

Gifts can be delivered to your recipient and we can add your personal message. We have worked with Karen at the New Kent Art Gallery here in Broadstairs, who has created our labels especially for us!

You can find our festive offerings on our menu page, however, if you would like something bespoke please do ask and we will try and help.

Festive hampers include:

Kent cheese and wine box for 2 £30
Kent cheese and wine full bottle £35

Prosecco / Champagne / Kent wines and cider are also options – just ask for a price 


50% off 3rd August to 31st August

This offer applies to our entire food and soft drink menu for all seated guests in the Parlour. I’m afraid it doesn’t apply to alcohol or take aways.

Pop in for coffee and cake or make the most of a half price Afternoon tea! Any Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3rd – 31st August. There is no limit to how many visits you make and you don’t need a voucher – in fact, you don’t need to do anything! We will take care of that.  You will receive 50% off of your bill up to the value of £10 pp

Bessie’s is open!

We are delighted to be open again after a long few months! We may have fewer tables but our menu is back in full and we very much look forward to welcoming you all back.
Take away options are available and you are more than welcome to pre order and collect at a time that suits you. We would just ask that you wear a face covering when popping on for take aways.
We are also continuing with home deliveries across Thanet, Sandwich and all surrounding villages.

Home deliveries

We are so disappointed that, with the current situation, we are required to remain closed. However, we are providing a home delivery service of Afternoon Teas, Prosecco Teas, Savoury Teas, Cream Teas (min x 2), Children’s Teas and cake boxes. For the whole lockdown duration there will be no delivery charges in the Thanet area. We will also provide free delivery in Wingham, Sandwich, Preston areas during this time.
We hope to bring a little cheer to your day and welcome your continued support and custom.
