Why owner/property manager chose Canterbury
We were attracted to this house because of the central location in the heart of Canterbury - steps away from the Cathedral and High Street - yet with a wonderful hidden garden on a quiet street. It allows for easy day trips by train into London and is only a short drive or bus ride to the coast.

Lovely, coveniently located house in Canterbury, with excellent amenities.
Five adults very much enjoyed staying in this cottage. It is comfortable, with three discreet bedrooms and living and dining areas. It has a bonus garden room (and a garden) and parking, which we did not have to use. Owner provided appropriate appliances and supplies.
Wonderful house in great location
We had a great family holiday (3 generations) we loved the house , the conservatory and secret garden and to be able to park the car and just walk into town is such a bonus.
Derek was very helpful with our one query and made us most welcome - we had a nice meal in the Two Sawyers and enjoyed exploring Canterbury. Hopefully be back again another time. Many thanks .
A Gem close to city center
This wonderful property became my home for 2 1/2 months this summer. It was the perfect place!
The location to Canterbury was perfect, just a short walk and you are in the city center. It is also easy to get to any of the wonderful coastal towns in Kent. You can also easily catch the train from Canterbury West and be in London in under an hour. Although no car needed, there is LARGE private parking secured by a gate. Next door is a tea room and sandwich shop and next to that is a pub that serves lunch and dinner. There is a grocery store literally right behind the property.
The bedrooms are large and accommodating. This home would be good for large families or groups of friends looking for a nice get away. I will say the stairs that go from the office to the loft are dangerous. They are steep, and the treads are small and adult sized feet don’t fit on them unless you go up sideways. They are also covered by carpet that is worn and slippery. The only railing for support is a rope on the wall. I would not plan on older members of your party to use the upstairs bedroom, it is too precarious. My son fell down them and we both slipped on them several times.
The kitchen, although very small and dated, had everything you needed to make a family meal at home from scratch. There is no freezer, as all the reviews have noted, and this would have been a welcomed item this summer in the record breaking heat. There is ample seating in the dining room and also in the conservatory for eating in. There are 2 1/2 bathrooms, but only the main hall bathroom has a shower. The master en suite has a tub, but no shower sprayer. The closet space in the bedrooms is beyond anything you could wish for! There is a LARGE, but terribly overgrown south facing garden. This makes a great place for the birds to nest and your car will get extremely messy as well as the table and chairs on the paved patio area. The owners allow pets and this is a wonder garden to allow them to roam and play. There is a washer and dryer on site which was great for long staying tenants.
I can not say enough nice and wonderful things about the owners, Eric and Shelia. They were so helpful and accommodating during my stay. They replied to my emails in a timely fashion and when problems occurred they were taken care of immediately. Although the owners are not based locally, the lovely couple next door, Derrick and his wife, are available and willing to help. Highly recommended!❤️❤️
We are delighted that Michele was able to enjoy the summer at the house, with its location close to the city walls and historic city centre, as well as easy access to the coast and countryside of Kent. There is much to do, making it a wonderful summer break.
The house's charm includes the original features of a two hundred year old property, including the many brick fireplaces, period windows, and the brick and timber wall. As a Grade 2 listed building, many of the original features are protected, such as the stairs up to the loft bedroom. For many properties in the area this type of stairs are the only ones permitted. It is fortunate that modern main stairs were installed in our property, prior to the current requirements, making it easy to go up to the main bedroom floor.
Michele was a wonderful guest, and we are happy she enjoyed her stay.

Quaint town house in fantastic location
The house was perfect for our few nights in Canterbury, visiting the University and friends. We thought it was very comfortable, and the garden was lovely and very safe for our Jack Russell. A toaster in the kitchen would have been handy and for a longer stay a freezer would probably benefit people.
The children loved their rooms, especially the attic. A heater may be useful up there in the colder months. The children also commented that headboards on the beds would have been useful. We did point out to Dennis before we left that the rope on the attic stairs was coming away from the wall.
The welcome we had was lovely and we felt very much at home with our goody basket which was very much appreciated. We are honoured to have been your first guests and it was lovely to meet you Sheila. Many thanks for your hospitality.
