Our South-East England places to stay are spread across five counties  – HampshireEast SussexWest SussexKent and Berkshire – plus the metropolitan area of London. In the Hampshire section you will also find recommendations on the Isle of Wight. The South-East also includes Surrey, where at present we have no listings. Click on these counties or on London for summary listings of our places to stay in each. These will then lead you to detailed hotel descriptions.

  The South-East is the most densely populated area of Britain, dominated by the sprawl of London and its suburbs. Much of the countryside is manicured and semi-suburban, but there remain more than a few pockets of timeless charm. In the south-west corner of Hampshire is the New Forest with its mostly empty heath and woodland. Running through East and West Sussex are the often lonely and windswept South Downs. The Weald, in Kent, is full of charming towns and villages; Berkshire has some beautiful downland.

  There are many highlights in this section, but if we have to single out a handful, then they must include Old Whyly, an impeccable guest house near Glyndebourne; The Griffin Inn, Fletching, one of the first gastro pubs; and in London, Camberwell's one-off Church Street Hotel.

  Not surprisingly, the South-East of England contains an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: guesthouses, inns, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
