Interaction with guests
We live on the same site as the cottages, and will be here to greet you personally, and acquaint you with the cottage and surroundings. We are more than happy to have a chat with guests, and equally happy to leave them alone if that's what they want! We have found over the year that many guests have became friends, and we have met some truly lovely people.

Excellent communication and friendly service. Accommodation was lovely and comfortable with everything we needed. Location was great with easy access to Canterbury, Sandwich and the Kent coast. It was lovely to have outdoor space and we even managed to sit outside on the odd occasion!...More

I have no hesitation in recommending Canterbury Cottages. The cottage is delightful, immaculately clean, the garden beautiful and the hosts exceptionally friendly and efficient. I look forward to our next stay there.

We had a very good week. There were lots of things supplied that are not usually supplied in self-catering. The table and chairs outside were welcome as our week was hot and dry. The walk-in shower worked well.

About the neighbourhood
Ideally situated to visit all that our area has to offer. Dover Castle, Deal Castle, Walmer Castle, all within 20 minutes. The seaside towns of Ramsgate, Margate with the Turner Contemporary Gallery and Dreamland, Broadstairs with Charles Dickens house, Whitstable with it's oysters and great harbour area - (I could go on!) all within 20-30 minutes. Just down the road (3 miles) is Sandwich, a fantastic mediaeval town with the most timber framed building in England. Inland there is Canterbury, the seat of Christianity with it's marvellous cathedral and St Augustine's Abbey. Not to mention Tenterden, Tunbridge Wells, all worth a visit. Sissinghurst and Scotney have wonderful gardens, and there are several large shopping outlets too.

We have a 20 minute bus service from a stop 50 yards from the cottages, running to Canterbury, Deal and Sandwich. From there you can reach Whitstable and surrounding areas
