Overview

About the property

Following on from the success of our other holiday cottage in Canterbury - Augustine's Cottage, our new property, Scholar's House, provides 3 ample sized double bedrooms and a wonderful kitchen diner which provides the perfect gathering place for friends and family to enjoy a meal and each other's company. The house also boasts a wonderfully secluded walled garden which is planted in an oriental style. Please note that the stairs to the basement are steep. The other stairs are reasonably steep too but just stereotypical of this age of house in the area. The house is also 'pet friendly'.

A lovely house. Cosy and luxurious. Only a few minutes walk to the centre of historical Canterbury.

  • 5 of 5

We had fabulous stay at Scholars House. Spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable, warm and decorated for Christmas. A lovely welcome pack, including Christmas cake and a personal welcome card from the owners. Thank you . We’ve had a lovely festive break

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, comfortable house, has everything you need. Beautifully decorated in a stylish way. We stayed with five adults. We all loved the beds! They are very good beds, which is not always the case in holiday homes. It's about a ten minutes' walk to the city. The street in which the house is located is quiet. Parking was no problem on arrival (15.00 hours) but a bit difficult when we returned from a day out at 23 hours, which is what you probably would expect in a city like this. However, we managed to find parking space in a street nearby. Parking permits are supplied for every day of your stay, which is very convenient.

On arrival we found a lovely welcoming basket which was much appreciated and even a decorated Christmas tree was provided! The sitting room is very cosy with good sofa's for a bit of relaxing. Kitchen and diner area are cosy as well, with a good size dinner table for 6 people and comfortable chairs. We met Chris Perkins, the owner, when we did a tour of Canterbury with him, which was great fun. You'll find a leaflet with information on this tour in the house. Chis is very kind and helpful. There's also a lovely garden, which will be great in summer. We would definitely come again!

Suited us perfectly

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, well equipped house within walking distance of Canterbury town centre. The welcome basket is a fabulous addition and was very well received, especially as we arrived at the property quite late. The property is warm, nicely decorated and has comfy beds and pillows. Throughout the weekend, I could not get the TV system to work in the basement and although not the end of the world, a bit disappointing as this is the room my wife had banished me to! We will definitely be coming to stay again (if we are still welcome). Parking in the street is fairly limited at certain times of the day, but the owners had told us about this in advance and we were happy to book on that understanding.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Scholar's house is ideally located for a stay in Canterbury and also to explore the County of Kent. The property is well equipped, comfortable and more importantly homely.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend to others.

Very nice house in Canterbury

  • 5 of 5

The house is well located, 5 minutes walk from the city center. It was perfectly equipped, very clean and in a very good state. We found everything we needed including a welcome package.

Only one problem we didn´t receive the email with the code to get the keys before our arrival and we had to wait in front of the house till we got in touch with the owner.

A lovely property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I plus daughter, son-in-law and their two small children spent four very enjoyable days in Scholar's House. The owners were very helpful and the house is very stylish and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the garden room..luckily we had good weather. Highly recommended. The location is perfect for accessing the many pleasures of Canterbury.
