Stayed here for a long weekend in February with friends and family and cannot recommend this little gem highly enough. The location is tranquil and very peaceful but a short walk across the field offers a very charming pub with great character and food. The accommodation is beautifully appointed and the welcome pack offers a lovely touch. The only trump...

This must be the best holiday house we have ever booked. Its position might be a little 'in the middle of nowhere', but that make it also very central. You can go to canterburry, whitstable, folkestone and a lot of other places. More than we could do in one week. On arrival we were welcomed bij Nessa, the most generous...

About the neighborhood
Canterbury has a whole host of history and heritage for you to come and discover, such as: the Cathedral, St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martins Church. The city is home to one of Kent's most popular attractions, The Canterbury Tales. A stunning reconstruction of 14th century England follows Geoffrey Chaucer's colourful characters on their magical pilgrimage from London to the shrine of St. Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral. Strolling the narrow, cobbled traffic-free streets of one of England's oldest cities is an experience that will never be forgotten. Whilst shops and restaurants flourish in lively cosmopolitan counterpoint to Canterbury’s absorbing heritage.
