WELCOME TO ST EDMUNDS COTTAGE
Luxury self catering holiday accommodation in Canterbury
Our property search in 2019 led us to discover this pretty double fronted Victorian cottage in Canterbury and we fell in love with her instantly!
St Edmunds Cottage is Located down a small, quiet no through lane and surrounded by lovely historic buildings. This area of Canterbury city centre has a distinctly “villagey feel” however it’s but a moments stroll from all that this wonderful city has to offer.
From the moment we acquired the keys we set about transforming her, taking care not to lose any of her charm & character, into a stylish and supremely comfortable holiday home rental.
Luxury self catering accommodation Canterbury
St Edmunds cottage is equipped and furnished to a high standard, with all the modern conveniences guests would expect to find at 5 star holiday accommodation. Fully centrally heated and with a cosy gas stove in the lounge, makes the cottage perfect for year round holidays in Canterbury.

The fireplace houses a cosy stove; we chose to install a gas stove for its ease of use, they are lovely and warm but come without the hassle of fetching in wood and smokey smells! French doors from the lounge open onto the charming and private courtyard garden.
The spacious dining area features a contemporary zinc top dining table with seating for four guests. With dimmable pendant lighting above it’s the perfect spot for enjoying intimate after dark dining and conversation.

Plus, at the end of Stour street and just a 4 minute walk, there is a new Sainsbury’s local shop selling just about everything you might need without having to drive out to a larger supermarket.
Following on from the kitchen is the modern & sleek shower room. Fully equipped with large walk-in shower, basin and loo of course! The heated towel rail and radiator insures that the room and your towels are kept nice and warm.

Children & pets
Whilst we do welcome children at St Edmunds cottage, parents must be aware that the spiral staircase has wide spaces in between the spindles and cannot be fitted with a stair gate. The bedroom windows have a low threshold and are not fitted with bars. It is therefore our opinion that this makes our holiday let unsuitable for children under the age of 5yrs. We are able to provide guests with a baby travel cot and high chair free of charge if required.
PLEASE NOTE. that guests use the cottage, its furnishings and equipment at their own risk.
We regret that we cannot except pets to stay at St Edmunds cottage.
