We stayed at The Limes for 4 days while visiting Kent and didn't want to leave. We rarely return to the same B&B on return trips but we will stay at The Limes again and again. Sonia, the owner, is kind, knowledgeable and accommodating. She made reservations at the local pubs for us for dinner (all pubs are in walking distance and all served very good food), she had great tips for traveling in the area and things we should see that we hadn't thought of. She also has maps, brochures and information on local sites. The local train station (Bearsted) is an easy 5 minute walk down the hill to The Limes.
The house and gardens are beautiful. The house is over 600 years old and we loved the thought of sharing in such history. Our room overlooked the front of the house and the village green and everything was quite comfortable. The shower has a huge sunflower head -- it was like taking a shower in a waterfall; there is a dressing room with a good sized wardrobe, bookcase and tea/water area (Sonia provided fresh milk each day so we could have "proper" English tea).
Breakfast was delicious and fresh each morning. Forget trying to watch what you eat or diet when Sonia is cooking...thank goodness we took so many walks during our stay.
