My wife and I stayed at Becketts BnB as part of a 2 week trip to the UK in July/August of 2013 and I can't think of enough nice things to say about the place. Ken and Jacqui (the owners) are delightful and went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay, and whether it was taking the time to drive us over to the car rental place in Edenbridge or recommending activities/restaurants in the area they were always reachable, friendly, and more than helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and their location in Kent is great - very nearby to several local attractions (Hever castle, Chartwell) and they're reasonably close to London via car or train. If you're in Kent and looking for a wonderful place to stay I can't recommend Becketts strongly enough.
