How wonderful to be back again for 3 nights and it is as always like coming home for us...we just unpack a few things and the holiday has begun...in fact, the minute we drive past the church and into our parking spot we begin to relax! The garden and patio are always so pretty, and there is always a warm...

My wife have just stayed the night with Kate and Tim at The Holt. We arrived on Saturday and were offered Tea and Cake in the dining room. We were shown to our room which was spacious, clean and filled with those extras which show attention to detail and concern for the comfort of their guests. I particularly liked the...

Ah, how lovely to come back again, three overnights in our favourite twin bedded room. Gorgeous sunny weather included! We now no longer expect anything else!! ;-) As usual everything perfect, comfort, breakfast, cleanliness, hospitality. It really feels like coming home now which is why we always want to return whenever we are in Kent. We ate as usual each...

We loved our weekend at 'The Holt' - really appreciated the unobtrusive care and easy conversations about all things local. Kate's attention to detail (fresh flowers, beautifully set breakfast table, maps, wifi) and delicious fresh food all added to a perfect weekend. Special thanks to Kate and Tim for sharing their lovely home, garden and local knowledge. Judith and Amanda...

A glorious week of feeling special without being overly effusive, a wonderful welcome with tea and fresh scones in the dining room. The two rooms were comfortable and both had en-suites, there was always fresh fruit, flowers and tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfasts were well cooked and presented and Kate goes the extra mile with a great eye...

A friend of ours was hosting their 30th Birthday at a large rental cottage 5 minutes drive from The Holt so we booked for the Friday and Saturday nights. We were greeted warmly upon our arrival (a little later than planned due to London traffic) and were shown up to our very comfortable and well equipped room. The beds were...

We returned to the warm hospitality of Kate at the Holt to stay for one night in late November. We really must visit again with more time to explore the area in better weather. As before, we were greeted warmly and our room was most comfortable. Kate gave us a great choice for breakfast which was delicious. We needed WiFi...

the 3 nights we spent at the Holt were not long enough. We felt like we welcomed as part of the family. A little off the beaten path, but very much worth traveling the narrow lanes of Kent. Kate (our inn keeper) was gracious and considerate and we felt like we were leaving our own home the morning we departed....

“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.”
