KLM fly from Amsterdam to Manston - just down the road from Ashford.

The train journey from Amsterdam to Ashford isn't that easy. Very few eurostar trains actually stop at Ashford these days.

I posted a very long reply in your other duplicate thread only to discover it had gone so I will keep this brief.

There is just one Eurostar train per day from Brussels (departing at 16.56 during the week) that stops at Ashford International but the journey and much else about train travel in Europe is explained at this excellent site -

Knowing your budget for an overnight London stay might allow us to make suggestions but you should be aware that B&B's in the traditional New England style are non existent in London. You don't have to limit your options to South Kensington as your overnight train doesn't depart until the evening but you should find accommodation that will keep your bags for you during the day. The Premier Inn chain is worth a look.

I would rent a car to get around after that. Trains do run to parts of the Cotswolds as well as Cambridge but travel between the two will involve going through London and/or multiple changes. The freedom of a car will prove useful but do take one way charges into account should you be returning the car to Heathrow.
