Reviewed 31 May 2013

Had a fantastic stay at this B & B, couldnt have asked for better. Nice friendly owners who went out of their way for us. Our room was spotlessly clean with large ensuite bathroom. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast. Couldnt recommend it enough!

Room Tip: We had a standard room which was more than adequate. Did not view any of the luxury, higher graded r...

We stayed overnight in April 2013. Lovely view from room 5 with balcony doors looking out onto well kept garden and adjoining fields. Very peaceful. Nicely decorated ensuite room with bath and shower and all very clean. We had the full English breakfast which was very good. There is a local pub not too far away that serves good food. We booked a nearby restaurant in the evening and asked Karen (the owner) for the number of a local taxi. Karen and Steve very kindly offered to give us a lift there and provided advice on booking a taxi for our return journey which we really appreciated. We will stay again if in the area.

Stayed here for one night on business trip. Rooms were clean, stylish and comfortable and breakfast was fantastic. Everythin you need for a great stay and at a very reasonable price. Would definitely recommend for either business or leisure trip

Stayed here in April 2013 for 1 night for business. Cost around £60 for ground floor room with patio.

The good,
Large comfy room
Great amenities
HD Sky TV with a load of movie and sports channels - Quite a treat.
Good breakfast
Great value
Quite area
Parking

The bad
Nothing, other than internet which kept dropping in and out. I didn't mention it at the time to them so they are probably unaware until they read this. I have no doubt they will have it fixed straight away.

Overall it's a nice place to stay and great value for money and I can't wait to stay again next time I am in the area.

Purpose made b&b in the heart of Leeds village a few minutes walk from the local pub which has excellent food. Kent house has been designed to be quiet having the on suites at the front & bedrooms at the tear to reduce traffic noise. All the linen & bedding wher clean with a fresh smell, the rooms overlook rolling feilds. The room we had had a Juliet balcony lovely on a warm sunny day. There is a choice of breakfast from full English to continental,with plenty of filter coffee.
Which was locally sourced even the eggs are from the owners fre range chickens. Well worth a stay A+++

I stayed here with my partner during April 13 just for the one night. The b and b is well kept, very clean but lacks things that make it stand out from the rest. On arrival with only one foot in the door we were asked to come straight away and give our breakfast orders. Which I find most out of order and spoils your stay, the whole place was very quiet as well, so they were not rushed. I had already requested soya milk when booked, and this was provided. However a asked if it was possible for something vegetarian, maybe sausages and next morning I was given rather greasy hash browns which I detest. The only thing I really liked was baked beans, and these were forgotten until I asked. The boxes of cereals were left in their boxes and the whole breakfast experience was rushed and very Spartan. On the plus side although we had the cheapest room, it was nice, although again it lacked all the things for a nice stay like cheap radox shower gel just for men ! how about me ! and no extra shampoo or soap or anything. And no loo roll holder. Iwas also concerned about how far the windows opened, incase of needing to escape from fire. The lady is charge is very polite and just could be a touch more welcoming.

Stayed here for two nights while exploring places such as Canterbury, Dover, Great Dixter, Sissinghurst, Bodiam Castle, etc. in Kent. The room was sizeable, the bathroom was big. I always think a room should have two chairs for seating, this room only had one chair. The view from the room was garden area. Breakfast was real good.

Room Tip: Rooms are on the first floor, not ground.
