About Chris Perkins
Deb and I (Chris) both teachers bought the cottage with the view of it becoming our first holiday let. Our first guest, Mr. Sinclair arrived 7 September, 2015. We bought the cottage after our son attended Kent University and we fell in love with the city. The cottage's location is perfect and even negates the need to permanently have a car at your disposal, even though there is designated parking outside the cottage. We are still discovering all that Canterbury and the surrounding area has to offer and every time we venture out, there is something new to thrill and enjoy. Our cottage welcomes considerate pet owners as we too have two Westies who have enjoyed time there as we prepared the cottage for guests.

What makes this Cottage unique
Being able to walk into Canterbury city in less than three minutes yet enjoy a quiet and tranquil location. One of the very few pet friendly cottages within the heart of Canterbury and now with its own designated parking space outside the property. Has to be a win win!

Delightfully, renovated house in the centre of Canterbury
We had a lovely time staying in this amazing cottage which has been stylishly and sympathetically renovated. It is very comfortable and well equipped, and in an ideal location for visiting Canterbury- we didn't use the car except for a trip to the coast. It was very warm while we were there but we were still able to sit and eat outside in shade or sunshine. Wonderful welcome pack!
Perfect base for exploring Canterbury. Beautifully presented.
Owners could have not been more helpful. Beautiful cottage. Wonderful welcome basket. Parking space a real plus given the proximity to the city centre.
Great little house in a great city
The house was great, ideal for 3 sisters enjoying a weekend in a city we have not been to before.
Eating breakfast in the garden in the lovely sunshine was a real treat.
Having the dedicated parking space was a real bonus and meant we could leave the car without a worry and go exploring.
The house is decorated to a very good standard and the welcome box was a lovely surprise. (sorry we didn't do it justice)
The city and all its attractions is only a few minutes walk away and you quickly get your bearings.
Would highly recommend this as a place to stay
Fantastic location to old town, St. Martin's and the train was ideal. The cottage was well adorabe
And well appointed, dont think we could have asked for more. Thank you to our hosts.
We had a lovely time in Canterbury, so easy to walk from the cottage into the city centre.
Beautiful cottage, spacious and equipped with everything you could need. We had our 6th month baby with us and it was ideal. Would recommend.
