My wife and I have just returned from a weekend break in Kent, where we stayed for one night at the lovely Austens Cottage. The twin room was very comfortable, in fact more so than many hotels we have stayed in, and there was even free broadband. Bill and Ronnie have made us feel really welcome in their family home - they were warm, helpful and always smiling. What more could we ask for? We definitely recommend a stay if you're looking to see the many attractions in the area.

Located off a quiet private road, this is a charming home with gracious hosts. As many guests (like me) are in Sevenoaks to see the beautiful neighbouring countryside (Chartwell, Hever Castle, etc), you will very helpfully be loaned a marked Ordnance Survey map with all required directions and suggestions. The Sevenoaks High Street (with Knole House not much farther) is no more than 5-6 minutes away on foot. I was very kindly given a lift down to the railway station when I left, as it was spitting rain. The accomodation was comfortable, cosy, clean and quiet with a fine shower and everything you would expect in a classy B&B (nice toiletries, etc). Breakfast was from the same drawer and you are likely to waddle off replete and ready for your day.

A bonus for lovers of the game of rugby is that Bill is a connoisseur with plenty of oval-shaped tales, if you are interested!

One of the best and I have stayed in many.

Visited Sevenoaks with my son and stayed with the Campbells for 3 nights in May 2013. Austens Cottage is such a lovely place in a central location and Bill and Ronnie were such perfect hosts too. Thank you and we hope to be back next year.

Thouroughly enjoyed our stay.
Ronnie and Bill are excellent hosts and set us up for the day with a fabulous breakfast.
Austens is very handy for the centre of Sevenoaks which has no shortage of good places to eat.
It is also surprisingly quiet and peaceful for such a central location.
We will be back.

Room Tip: There are only two guest rooms to choose from. A large, light twin room with a view over the garden...

We decided last minute to stay for 1 night at Austens cottage, guided by the good reviews on this site. Ronnie and Bill warmly welcomed us in their lovely house. We stayed in the twin room, which was reconfigured as a double bed. The room was nicely decorated and the bathroom was very good with a large walkin shower. Bill and Ronnie have a lot of attention for their guests and Bill makes a great cooked breakfast in the morning.

We would love to come back here and warmly recommend it to other travellers.

My wife and I stayed for one weekend and were very well looked after by Ronnie and Bill. We had the larger of the two bedrooms. The accommodation was comfortable, conveniently located in pleasant surroundings near Sevenoaks centre, and breakfast was excellent. There was nothing not to like about it, and we'd happily stay there again.

We had a lovely stay at Austen’s cottage. Bill and Ronnie were great hosts and were very accomodating with our 7 month old baby. The room was very nice and the breakfast was delicious. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this lovely B&B.
