Lovely location.
Perfect friendly hostess.
Room had everything one could think of. Except a supply of shoes to throw at the local pheasant cok at 5am. But that's country living for you :-)

We've stayed at the Holt for six years in a row and will come back for many more years. It's our home away form home and the perfect place to start or end our holiday in the UK. Kate and Tim are warm and generous. They welcome you with a cup of tea and home made cake. The rooms are fresh and bright and look wonderful. Everytime there is some new lovely detail that makes it even better. Their breakfast is great, lovely local produce and very well prepared.
See you next year!

This was our fourth trip to the UK and everytime we had to look for places to stay and hope they would be ok. Next time will be easier. If we visit this part of the UK again ... "The Holt" ... will be on our list again. Just perfect ... both Bed and Breakfast ... a grand bravo for the owners of this location.

What a lovely country B&B located in Benenden, Kent. We chose Benenden as a centre for touring castles, gardens and homes in England. The Holt was a good choice, in a lovely setting. Tucked away just outside the village, with a beautiful garden.
Very nice rooms with absolutely everything you could want. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful, both continental and cooked.
Touring from here was very easy as many of the sights were within short distances. There are two local pubs in the village where you can get an evening meal.
As we had a late arrival on our first night, Kate, our hostess, was kind enough to provide us with welcome tea and cake in the garden the next afternoon.
We would definitely return here and recommend it highly as a central location for visiting this area.

Our second time at the Holt and we were not disappointed. This is a lovely little place on the outskirts of Benenden, near many of the beautiful attractions of Kent. Kate and Tim are wonderful hosts and truly make you feel at home in their lovely house.

We have just returned from a break sampling the joys of Kent. We fell upon the Holt almost by accident and discovered it was a wonderful little oasis of calm to return to after days out viewing all the local sites. Kate Rundell and her husband, Tim, run this lovely place and nothing is too much trouble for them. They are most knowledgeable on the local places to visit and also the best places to eat etc.

The Holt has 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedded room, all ensuite, and they are finished to a very high standard. The decor is attractive and all Kate's little home touches are much appreciated, such as fruit, sweets, assorted teas & coffees, biscuits all being available in your room and she is more than happy for visitors to sit in her delightful garden to have their tea. All the rooms look over the gardens and these are full of birds and wildlife, as well as flowers. Breakfast is taken in the dining room with hens, squirrels and wild birds all outside the window and Kate provides home made bread and preserves together with locally sourced bacon, sausages etc. - all designed to start the day off just right.

Benenden itself is close to many of Kent's must-do's, such as Sissinghurst Gardens and numerous houses/castles. The Holt is situated on the edge of the village, within easy walking distance of two local pubs which provide excellent evening meals and the only task is to master staggering home by torchlight - great fun.

All in all a delicious B & B providing all the little extras to make for a delightful stay in Kent.
