Laura stayed July 2020
“ A gorgeous cottage on a lovely picturesque, tranquil street. It is walking distance to the shops, cafes and restaurants making it a great location for a weekend away. Beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard with nice finishing touches. We were in a group of four and found that there was plenty of space to dine inside or outside in the stylish courtyard. The lounge is also extremely comfortable. Would very much recommend.”

What makes Canterbury, Kent so special
Canterbury is rated as one of England’s top visitor attractions. Steeped in history and culture, it truly is a city to visit in all seasons.
The magnificent Canterbury cathedral is one of Europe’s finest, with concerts, exhibitions, talks and walking tours going on throughout the year. And a stay in Canterbury would be complete without visiting Chaucer’s world famous Canterbury Tales – of medieval misadventure at one of the city’s most popular attractions.
The spring and summer sees Canterbury’s many green spaces come to life. Stroll the riverside foot paths, picnic in the parks and gardens and go punting on the river Stour; where you can relax and enjoy a cold Pimms whilst you learn about the historic city and waterways from your boating chauffeur. The nearest punting company is but a few minutes stroll from our luxury holiday cottage.
