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 hosts and the breakfasts are truly excellent, including delicious home-made bread, toasted, and Kate's marmalade (thankfully available to buy and bring home!) We were blessed with gorgeous weather and all the doors and windows were thrown open onto the tranquil garden, just perfect. We ate each night in the Bull which has a good menu , including traditional pub dishes well cooked and nicely served, and a very good Merlot! This really is a wonderful part of kent and the villages are gems.....we visited the magnificent garden of Great Dixter, and also the lavender fields in Shoreham. On the way home we stopped over at Dungeness, cameras at the ready!
We cant wait to return and look forward very much to staying in this truly delightful B&B again. We felt totally relaxed and at home.
