Our business is to make your stay a great one. We will meet you at the railway station, take you shopping, buy your groceries and do whatever it takes. We are full time at your disposal.

Richard Board purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Richard Board chose Kent

It's such a great little hideaway right downtown. The sleeping accommodation is at the back where it is very quiet.

This is a good as it gets and as close as you can be to the City centre and with parking directly outside.

What makes this apartment unique

Brilliant location for all City ammenities. Easy access to Kent University. Minutes away from Canterbury West railway station (55 minutes to London St. Pancras). Very private and secure.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place for exploring Canterbury and for venturing further afield into the rest of Kent. Richard met us and was very helpful with information after being very forbearing when we got lost on the way and were considerably later than we had estimated. The apartment is very comfortable especially considering it is 550 years old. There were many helpful extras left for us to use including a big bowl of chocolates. Would recommend highly.

This is the perfect place to stay if you seriously want to immerse yourself into the Canterbury experience. Because it is situated along a main street you will feel the energy and excitement of the town. Everything you will want to see is within walking distance. Even the grocery store is nearby. Canterbury is a walker's paradise.

I spent a lovely nine days in this apartment by myself. The living room has plenty of light and had a nice long table which serves as a great dining table. But for me I used it to spread out my art supplies so I could work on my sketches. In addition, I so enjoyed looking out the front window and just people watching. One can also lounge on the couch or the easy chairs to have a chat or watch TV.

The kitchen had everything I needed, even a coffee press. On this vacation I cooked all my meals here and saved a bundle of money.

The bedroom was in the rear of the apartment, and was nice and quiet. The mattress was exceptionally comfortable which was important to me.

Richard’s wife picked me up from the train station, and Richard took me back. I was also invited to an art event which allowed me to chat with the locals. You will find Richard and Julie exceptional people. They really helped me feel I was part of the community; not just a tourist. And that was just what I was looking for :- )

Wohnen in einem 500-Jahre-alten Haus!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in dieser individuellen Ferienwohnung mitten in der Fußgängerzone von Canterbury.

Das Schlafzimmer liegt ruhig nach hinten, im Wohnzimmer erlebt man die quirlige City der alten Studentenstadt im Herzen von Kent! Ein echtes Erlebnis!

Die Wohnung ist liebevoll eingerichtet und sehr gepflegt, Mister Board (der Vermieter) sehr zuvorkommend und für alle Fragen und Problemchen sofort um eine Lösung bemüht. Thank you so much, Mr. Board. We hope to come back, soon!

Mitten in Canterbury

  • 4 of 5

Die Unterkunft direkt an St. Peters Street ist optimal gelegen. Trotz zentraler Lage ruhiges Schlafzimmer und eine Wohnung in einem 500 Jahre alten Haus, die sehr gut eingerichtet ist. Für unseren Stadtaufenthalt genau das Richtige. Der Vermieter hat uns gut zur Wohnung geleitet und allen Absprachen war schon vor der Ankunft gemacht. Wir können das Domizil nur weiterempfehlen.

Owner's Response: Guest translation: The accommodation is located on Saint Peters Street is ideally located. Despite central location quiet bedroom and an apartment in a 500 year old house that is very well established. For our city stay just right. The landlord has guided us well to the apartment and all arrangements were made even before the arrival. We can only recommend the country. Thank you very much - we enjoyed having you.
