We stayed at The Holt for two nights in February while visiting Kent for the weekend. The B&B is an old building and the room was very nice and clean. We were given fresh milk every day and there were sweets and fresh fruit in the room which were lovely touches.
Kate was a very kind and helpful host and lent us maps and advised us on local attractions. The breakfast was also wonderful - one of the best we've had at a B&B. Fresh fruit salad, yoghurts, cereal, homemade bread and homemade jams were followed by a cooked breakfast with top quality and locally sourced ingredients.
The Holt is situated about ten minutes walk from Benenden and while we did walk in the evenings, it is a very dark road so caution is advised, though Kate did lend us torches! We visited both The Bull and the King William pubs and felt the quality of food was better at the King William.
All in all, a place definitely to be recommended!
