We have a large comfortable king size room available in our family home. £40 is the single occupancy rate for the double, per night. An extra person is just an extra £20 per night. The bed is very comfortable!
We are in Wincheap which has it's own independent high street but is a short walk to the city walls and central Canterbury with all its beauty, history and culture. You are also a walk/cycle/short drive from the Kent countryside. The rest of East Kent is easily accessible. We are also 30 minutes from Dover and Ashford International railway station.
London St Pancras is under an hour away by high speed train.
There is free on-street parking and wifi.
There is one shared bathroom and a peaceful garden. We've got a pretty good shower!
You are welcome to use the kitchen and living/dining rooms. We have freesat & BBC iplayer etc on TV which you are welcome to watch. We provide help yourself breakfast.
We are likely to be at home some of the time but please do feel at home! We're happy to chat about local amenities.
I've lived in a few places but have chosen to settle in Canterbury as it has a beautiful green historic centre, small enough that everywhere is within walking distance. It has the benefits of being a city with interesting independent shops and cafes and plenty of cultural opportunities. Yet we are just a short drive from the country and 20 minutes from the sea! For the energetic we have the wonderful crab and winkle traffic free cycle route from Canterbury to the sea at trendy Whitstable, famous for fine dining including local beer and oysters! Finally if the big city calls, then a day trip to London is easily feasible.
We are within easy reach of both train stations and the bus station.
We speak English, French and Arabic.
In addition to the listed amenities we can provide hair dryer/iron & ironing board and hot water bottles - though the house is pretty cosy. Anything else you need or have forgotten - just ask!
The house is non smoking. The neighbourhood is quiet and we like our sleep so we just ask that guests respect this and try not to make too much noise late at night.
