Stayed for one night (room 6) with my wife and 18 month old while visiting Canterbury. In summary - quaint, 15 mins max from Canterbury, ample free parking at rear, very welcoming and accommodating owner, clean spacious and comfortable en-suite room, good selection of cereals and tasty cooked breakfast to order. Just for balance, very minor point the TV was... More

Stayed here for four nights, car park is to the rear but be careful as three cars reversed into the little wall whilst we were there. Was welcomed warmly and showed to our room, run by a very nice couple who were very helpful and made our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was lovely with choice of cereals and fresh fruit, two... More

We stayed for two nights as a family, in two rooms. The front of the house dates back to 1550, but the rooms are at the back, which is a modern extension. The rooms are simply decorated and furnished with solid oak furniture. The breakfast has everything - fresh fruit salad, yogurt, choice of cereals, fresh fruit juice, toast with... More

Everything was very clean and comfortable and well thought out with good attention to detail.The bedrooms (as the photos demonstrate) are plainly decorated in a contemporary and pleasing style. The rooms were warm, in... More

Just returned from one night stay and cannot praise enough. Beautifully clean, excellent service .Breakfast was superb and the owners could not have been more helpful. Good location for getting into Canterbury. Would thoroughly recommend. Will be returning for annual Christmas shopping trip!

This was a last minute booking on a Friday night and what a little gem this bed and breakfast was. Welcoming host, clean comfortable room and a delicious breakfast in the morning. Also a bonus of an excellent pub nearby for dinner. Really good location for visiting Canterbury, buses pass the door if you don't want to drive.
