Hidden gem in Canterbury
We stayed here for 4 days/nights so we could explore east Kent and also Canterbury and what a lovely place Little Lodge Cottage is. It was perfect. It is cosy and just what we were after and very contained. The beds were very comfortable. Everything you needed was there, Mikal was the perfect host, very friendly and always helpful. Canterbury is about a mile away. so it was walking distance for us. Regular bus service into Canterbury. Also we mustn't forget Charlie the dog, very friendly. We will stay there again. Highly recommend it.

We’re still here and we love it!
I would normally wait until leaving a place to give it a review, but I feel compelled to write one now for this absolute gem of a place! With my wife and our two infant children (5mth and 2yo) we are staying a week here at Little Lodge Cottage and we really hope we’ll be able to come back one day. As others have commented, Mikal the owner, has really thought of everything and is so welcoming, friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble and she’s just next door if you need anything. The proximity to the city centre is great and the cottage is a great base to explore not only Canterbury but the wider area too. There’s so many positives to write, and really no negatives that I could put here. Granted I’m a dog lover, but my highlight is seeing Charlie the black Labrador who is adorable!

Gorgeous cottage in an amazing location
The cottage is close to the centre (you could even walk in), a short drive to the coast on a sunny day and directly opposite the university for those visiting their children. It’s a wonderful little place and the owners have thought of everything - hairdryer, straighteners, lovely fluffy towels, shampoo and conditioner, moisturiser, deodorants, tea and coffee etc - so you don’t need to worry if you have forgotten anything. It has all the mod cons including a dishwasher, Netflix etc, it has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The cottage is immaculate and very homely, it’s just a wonderful little place to stay. The owners are so helpful and care so much that you’ve had a comfortable stay. I honestly couldn’t recommend this place enough, it’s just perfect. If you are wondering whether to book then stop hesitating and do it, I promise you won’t regret it!

Wow what a lodge!
We absolutely loved our stay here. The owners were amazing and so helpful from the moment we booked. It felt like a real home from home and we had such lovely family bonding time. We went for a beautiful walk around the nature reserve a 5 minute drive away and will no doubt book here again! Highly Recommend xxx
