  • "The cottage is lovely with lots of period charm and it is very comfortable."

    It is right in the centre of Canterbury with easy access to shops, cafes and restaurants. The only drawback is the fact that the bathroom is downstairs with windy stairs but this is made clear in the listing. We had a very enjoyable stay.

  • "This is a fascinating, rather special cottage located in the centre of Canterbury but in a quiet street."

    We really enjoyed our stay.

  • "The nearest car park was £1."

    90 per hour and the park and ride parking was 50pence per day but the buses were not running because of the Covid 19. This information should have been made available. But besides the parking issues we had a very enjoyable week.

    70 per hour and park and ride £3.50.

  • "First time of booking a property away and at Christmas and we loved it."

    Would definitely do it again. The cottage was more impressive once we arrived, so close to the town and had everything we needed.

  • "Warm, clean, comfortable, right in the city centre."

    Everything in walking distance. Plenty of reading material for rainy days! Ancient building with steep stairs so not suitable for everyone. Noise from late-night revellers not a problem. Some early morning street cleaning, deliveries etc might disturb light sleepers.

  • "The location of this home is stellar!"

    ! High Street is less than a block away; the Beaney Museum is less than a block away; tourist Information is less than a block away; the Marlowe Theater is less than a block away; the Cathedral is about a block away. Good restaurants are next door and across the street. Parking is about a 5-minute walk away. What more could one ask for? The home itself was also comfortable and cozy. The stairs are extremely steep and curvy, so would not be suitable for anyone with mobility or balance problems. But otherwise everything was perfect. We were greeted with fresh flowers, coffee, milk and cookies. That was appreciated as well. If you are headed to Canterbury, this is a great find.

  • "Lovely house in a convenient part of town, right in the middle of all the shops and restaurants and tourist sights."

    Nice pub a few doors down also. The steps up to the top bedroom are very, very steep, but otherwise the house is really lovely, and we were very comfortable.

    Yet always felt like a cosy hideaway.

  • "The House is located right in the center of the city."

    So you don't need a car to explore Canterbury. The House has his own charisma. You see and feel the history. It is a very personal way of living in the house like being individually invited. There is a warm atmosphere and we felt home just from the beginning of our stay. If I come to Canterbury again, I would try to rent this house again.

  • "Beautiful cottage just a couple of minutes walk from the cathedral and shops."

    Although it snowed and was the coldest week in living memory, we were very cosy and comfortable inside. Fascinating collection of books. Would have liked to know more about the history of the house, but had fun speculating.

  • "~This is the second time we have stayed in the cottage, so it's quirky, perhaps not everyone's idea of up to date holiday accommodation but it is 15th Century!"

    !! what else should one expect! Just remember if you need to use the toilet in the middle of the night count 11 steps down and then up the stairs!! Considering it's location in the middle of the city it's amazingly quiet and super warm!! A welcome box of tea bags, coffee and M & S biscuits together with milk is an absolute bonus. One of the most comfortable cottages we have ever stayed in, we hope to book it again next year to visit the family again.

  • "Owners took a great deal of trouble to meet us at the property and ensured we had milk, tea, coffee, biscuits etc and with flowers in the room, excellent property full of character and amazingly central to the city, we were very happy with our stay and would readily return."

    There was no info on dealing with rubbish and recycling and bins were full that we found however it was no problem for us as we disposed of it ourselves and took recycling to Sainsbury's. A big Thank you to Anita and Peter for a wonderful experience.

The property

Built in the 15th century, this beautiful terraced cottage is situated in the heart of the city of Canterbury.

Within a minute’s walk of pubs, shops, restaurants and the Marlowe Theatre, it is a perfect choice for those looking to stay in a lively setting with history all around.

Opening the door guests will find themselves stepping into a world of charm and character.

From the warm welcome of the sitting room, surprisingly spacious once inside, to the luxury of the master bedroom with its magnificent four poster bed and private library, this beautiful cottage offers itself as a perfect holiday home.

For couples looking for a quiet, romantic break away from chrome and gloss, to families with teenagers where they can all enjoy the doorstep delights of a bustling city, this property will not disappoint.

Choosing this cottage as your holiday home will have you enchanted from the moment you step inside, the period features blend beautifully with comfy seating and ample dining space.

The stairs are very steep up to the second floor bedroom, however it is well worth the effort as this room has cathedral views, and if holidaying with a teenager, they will love the space and privacy this allows.

Outside everything is on your doorstep; from dining Italian, Turkish, French or Spanish, sampling a glass of British ale over a plate of good old fish and chips, to maybe enjoying traditional Viennese chocolate cake with a morning coffee, all are available within a few minutes’ walk along the pedestrianised High Street.

Alternatively, for those romantics among us, a river trip is just the thing, finished off by an evening at the Marlowe Theatre.

This lovely, cosy cottage is a real find.

About the location


Whitstable 6 miles; Herne Bay 9 miles.

Dominating the city skyline, the cathedral at Canterbury is the oldest in England, and along with the castle and quaint cobbled streets, draws visitors back time and again to its history, heritage and culture. Cosmopolitan restaurants, vibrant nightclubs and traditional pubs perch along the main streets or down narrow lanes, along with both high street shops and independent retailers. Travelling by foot is an excellent way of exploring the city, with walking trails and guided walks allowing visitors to discover winding streets and hidden corners, all with their own unique identity. By taking a boat trip along the River Stour, you can appreciate Canterbury's historic architecture and enjoy outstanding scenic views. From the frequent fairs and festivals to tempting food and drink events, Canterbury offers something for everyone throughout the year. For those wishing to enjoy the sea, Herne Bay and Whitstable are less than 8 miles away, while the attractions of inland Kent can also be easily reached.
