The Ham Yard Hotel is totally stuffed with plushness. It is a vibrant home-away-from-home just bursting with the signature British Kemp cool. Kit and Tim Kemp have gone all the way once again, to ensure that The Ham Yard is a memorable den for world-weary travellers.

Each one of its 91 rooms are about comfort and energy – inviting overstuffed armchairs beckon you to take time out, while electric combinations of colour and pattern thrill the senses. Lusciously dressed with rich, personable details suh as stacked coffee books, flowers in vases, rich tapestries and buoyant artworks give you the prim and proper sense of a everything you could want from a quintessentially English homestay.

It’s this delightful attention to materiality that defines the Kit Kemp signature. Handcrafted, robust ethnic textiles sit comfortably on traditional silhouettes and heavily buttoned upholstery. Strong timber legs ground fiery fabrics and wall-hangings ranging from Indian rural scenes, to lordy portraits, to the work our very own favourite Shilo Engelbrecht, delight the roving eye. Heavy draperies ensure that the visitor is well cocooned in their abode.

It’s a typically English sense of eccentricity that we know and love that allows the confidence to layer the conservative with the outlandish with such flair. Once again, Firmdale Hotels are at the top of their game. Where do I check in?
