An introduction to The Salutation in Sandwich


  • Garden
  • Group Friendly

Luxury Accomodation in Sandwich, built by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1912, comprising three seperate properties.

The Salutation was built by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1911-1912 for William, Gaspard and Henry Farrer as a weekend retreat to enable them to enjoy the coastal air. Named after an inn that originally stood within the grounds, the main house is supported by Knightrider House, Gatehouse, Coach House and Gardeners Cottage.

Set within the town and adjacent to the River Stour, surrounded by 3.5 acres of delightful Lutyens and Jekyll gardens and almost entirely encircled by the old city walls of Sandwich, the house is afforded a remarkable level of privacy.

Accommodation reflects the integrity of the house and gardens; the rooms are truly world class. Like a fine claret leaving you with a rounded after-taste, our rooms are tailored for the connoisseur.

Please note: Children under 16 are not permitted to stay at the Salutation.

Guest accommodation at The Salutation is rather special. The Salutation allows you to enjoy the luxury and comfort of a 5-star hotel whilst giving you the freedom and seclusion of a private house.

Each room is exquisitely appointed to the highest standards, and every bed is furnished with duck down duvets, pillows and toppers assuring the most comfortable night’s sleep.

The rooms, nine in all, are located in three beautiful properties within the curtilage of the main house. Each property has its own sitting room and dining room or dining area; and a state-of-the-art kitchen allowing you to indulge your culinary skills in the evening.

The accommodation is available on an individual room basis or on an exclusive property basis. For larger parties it is possible to occupy the entire site.
