Want the best of both worlds? Canterbury goes one better. With a city that’s chock-full of history and culture, the coast a mere 7 miles away, Kent AONB to the south and acre upon acre of ancient woodland to explore nearby, this place has it all. Our stunning Victorian villa is newly refurbished and perfectly located to explore the Cathedral City of Canterbury and its surroundings, with train links of just one hour to London and 30 mins from the ferry ports.
This great value accommodation is a handy stopover for long journeys or as a base to explore the wealth of attractions the Garden of England has to offer. With a UNESCO World Heritage Site on our doorstep, historic buildings, museums, Medieval adventures, fun city tours by boat or foot, beautiful gardens and fantastic shopping and nightlife with a friendly cosmopolitan vibe, Canterbury has plenty to keep you entertained. You can even stay in one of our enchanting wooden cabins outside, named after characters from Lord of the Rings - Orlando Bloom is from Canterbury after all!
