We have just spent another couple of nights at this, our favourite, b & b in the lovely village of Benenden in Kent, and it feels like coming home now. Such a lovely friendly welcome from Kate and Tim and a special two nights in the twin room which we love, overlooking the garden. Everything absolutely perfect once again, including...

One of the few places we have stayed more than one time. We first stayed at the Holt in 2007 (pre-Trip Advisor in our case) and at that time we had a wonderful few days. So having the urge to return to the area to visit places anew as well as some favourites, the Holt was the obvious choice, and...

This place is an absolute gem, from it's peaceful rural location, to the spotless and beautiful rooms to the delicious breakfast with home-made jam for your toast. Kate makes you feel so welcome. My best friend and I had booked 2 nights for a weekend of garden visits. We were late arriving, having missed our junction on the M25, but...

We had a gorgeous 3 night break over the Easter weekend, staying again in the twin bedded room Bluebell. It felt like "coming home" and we were so happy to be back. Everything was just perfect once again, in fact I sleep better than in my own bed at home! We could sit for ever in the delightful breakfast room,...

On arrival we were greeted in a very warm and friendly manner. We were offered tea and a yummy homemade cake, which went down a treat after the drive! The room was charming and comfy! Lovely view of the garden from our window. Breakfast was delicious, just what I needed after my friends 40th bday the night before. Kate and...

We needed a one night stay on Benenden and were lucky to find lovely Kate at The Holt. In November there was all that we needed, a warm welcome, a tasteful room with a comfortable bed. The neat shower room worked efficiently. A welcome cup of tea and a yummy piece of cake greeted is when we arrived and there...

The Holt, with hosts Kate and Tim set the standard for excellence in homestay accommodation. Kate's creativity shines through in the warm, friendly welcome, with brownies and tea through to homemade yoghurt, bread and preserves at breakfast. This is served in a delightful room, decorated with Kate's paintings, china and with a myriad of teapots. Benenden is a charming, small...

We had a marvellous long weekend break in Kent, staying at the Holt. We had a beautiful twin-bedded room, with small but perfectly equipped bathroom, beautifully furnished and with divinely comfortable beds. The spot is lovely, very quiet and a garden to sit in and enjoy the welcoming tea and home-made delicious cake on arrival. Kate and Tim are delightful...

What a fantastic break. Beautiful home, and you really feel welcomed into Tim and Kate's home. From the homemade cake and tea in the garden when we arrived to the chit chat and helpful advice, we had a lovely meal in the Bull. We visited with friends who were visiting from Australia they loved it too. The breakfast was so...

Set back from the road and surrounded by trees and open farmland this is a real gem. Well decorated and maintained, with some of the Host's paintings decorating the Breakfast Room this is a well thought out B&B. The adjacent village is a "picture postcard" with two greens, two pubs, a large church and a village shop and butchers.

“We love the pretty twin bedded room with its lovely double views onto the garden and paddocks. The shower is a wee bit "cosy", but I manage just fine and I am a Rubens lady! :-)”

“The Bluebell Room is a twin with a double aspect over the garden. But the shower room might not suit larger people.”
