Bed & Breakfast
Traditional B&B Accommodation in the Weald of Kent
Bressenden is situated in a quiet and unspoilt part of the Weald of Kent, with easy access to the coast and conveniently placed for the many attractions in the area. There are four bedrooms (all upstairs) and three generously sized bathrooms, one of them en-suite, for the use of B&B guests. I can accommodate up to six guests at once. Breakfast is served in the dining room, and a kitchen is set aside for the use of guests who wish to bring their own evening meal. There is a sitting room for guests, with TV, books, board games, jigsaw puzzles and access to the garden, and a cosy log fire in the cold months. In addition to a cooked English breakfast with eggs provided by the chickens in the garden the morning menu features creamy home-made yoghurt, fresh fruit salad, home-baked sourdough bread (from a culture started in 2009) and Belgian waffles, all made on the premises.
The ten-acre garden and woodlands are an ideal base from which to explore the extensive woods and many footpaths in the area. For cyclists, the house is conveniently situated on Route 18 of the National Cycling Network, and bicycles can be stored under cover. Wildlife abounds around the property, with surprisingly tame deer being frequent visitors to the garden. The presence of resident pet cats means that four-legged guests cannot be accommodated.
Guests should note that the house is in an isolated rural location, not within walking distance of any shops or restaurants. These can be found in several nearby villages, which are five to ten minutes away by car. Some suggestions for evening meals are listed here. Benenden Hospital is barely two minutes down the road by car, or ten minutes on foot, so Bressenden is the perfect place for patients and visitors to stay. There are special rates available for patients and visitors to Benenden Hospital.
The hostess is half Belgian and particularly welcomes French-speaking guests. There is ample car parking space at the property. Click here to check availability or make a reservation. Guests who wish to stay on a Friday or Saturday are required to book for a minimum of two nights.
