We are within easy reach of many attractions and country walks straight from the front gate, we are very pet friendly and pets stay for FREE with no extra costs. We are situated in a quiet lane which is a no through road leading to All Saints Church onto open fields which intercepts the well known saxon shore way walk, with walks along the River Stour too. The Parish starts at Plucks Gutter where the river stour is crossed and continues through the settlements of East & West Stourmouth. The Parish boasts one of the oldest churches in Kent, that of All Saints. Although now redundant it is maintained by the Church Conservation Trust and is open most days for visits with guest book available for you to leave comments. We also have a Public house dating back to AD1372, the Rising Sun, which offers excellent food and good company, The Dog and Duck, and Half Moon and Seven Stars which hosts regular live music events are within walking distance. There are many more good pubs and places to dine too. To help you find local walks and attractions Little Impetts has a weather proof detailed ordnance survey map of the area, which has proven to be very useful for our guests. This website used to have a guest book section showing all guest comments, which has now been superseded by trip advisor. Little Impetts has its own guest comments book which has helpful information and positive comments to also help you enjoy your time here. We hope that you have a great Christmas. January is the busiest month for bookings, so please book early to avoid disappointment, as the entire summer period was fully booked by the end of January 2018, But always check dates on the calendar as we do have the odd cancellation. Any questions please contact us by phone or email and we will get straight back to you., you can also book online by clicking on book now! We have recently added a New 3 burner Gas BBQ for you to enjoy the summer sunshine, BBQ packs can be purchased from the local Butcher Mark of Preston Butchers who takes pride in the use of locally farmed meat and game. We are regularly told by guests 'Little Impetts presents itself much better than the website shows' which is great to hear! we are very pro active with reviews and comments to insure that you have the most enjoyable and relaxing time during your visit. Canterbury City Centre is approximately 9 miles (20 minutes by car) More
