We stayed here while visiting Canterbury. While parking is included, when you go into town you will need to pay for parking by the hour. I'm not sure how much more it would cost to be within walking distance. Other than that, we loved our stay. Donna could not have been more hospitable. She was lovely. She cooks a full... More

We stayed here en route to France. Access to the channel tunnel is 35 mins drive, so very convenient. A very warm welcome from Donna,and a lovely bedroom, which was well equipped, pristine, and with a super comfy bed. Breakfast was as good as our recommendation, i.e. really good.

Our room was at the front of the guiding and although the road is very noisy during the day it was no issue... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for a family wedding nearby with other family members. Donna was very welcoming and worked hard to accomodate us. Breakfast was great and a great choice on offer. Very clean rooms and house throughout and a lovely village.

Donna is a miracle. The loveliest landlady we have encountered in over 50 years of travel. Her home is clean, warm and comfortable. The beds are good, the linen lovely, the atmosphere welcoming and homely. There is nothing she won't do to make her guests feel welcome and to help them enjoy their stay. We loved her home and her...

Stayed here whilst visiting Canterbury couldn't of made a better choice. Were made to feel really welcome by Donna and her family who spent time to help with information about the village, area and places to visit. Property full of historical character but with all the modern conveniences provided and spotlessly clean. Excellent breakfast was the icing on the cake.

We stay here a lot whilst visiting family. Donna is always very chatty, friendly and hospitable and makes for a great stay. The B and B is very quaint, ideally situated and has incredibly comfy rooms. What makes this place special is it is quiet at night which for us is incredibly important. Breakfast is always lovely too.
