Welcome to The Black Horse Inn

Situated in the hamlet of Thurnham along the historic pilgrims way, the Black Horse is just five minutes from the county town of Maidstone, nestled along the north downs in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.

Our rural setting is unique and tranquil and yet we are ideally placed for major transport networks, whether you wish to catch the train to London Victoria directly from Bearsted station or the M20, M2 or A249 that connect through this part of Kent.

If you are traveling further afield, journey times to the channel tunnel at Folkestone are only 35 minutes and Dover 45 minutes – this makes us a popular destination for a re-charge and overnight stay when traveling to or from the continent and we love to catch up with many of our returning guests each year.
