What a great find! Amazing location, a stone’s throw from high street with all of the restaurants and shops. Rachel was super communicative and helpful. Very clean, had all the things we need. 10/10 would recommend!

We stayed at The Marlowe for a total of three weeks and loved it! In a beautiful street, just on the edge of the town centre, opposite an orchard by the river, it was peaceful yet very accessible.
Rachel was very attentive and communicated well before and throughout our stay as needed- nothing was too much trouble.
There were 4 adults in our party and we were very comfortable. My 88 year old mother was fine in the two floor house, made easier by the additional bathroom downstairs. We loved everything but particularly the garden and the private parking. We will be back!

Great place to stay in Canterbury for family or couples. Easy to get in and private secure parking. Plenty of room and very nicely appointed with good kitchen. Great hosts who were very proactive about ensuring we had everything we need, plus they provided lots of useful help and video clips to make check in and use of facilities easy. Plus they provided lots of little extras such as tea, coffee, milk and biscuits, plus plenty of dishwasher and washing machine tablets. Very close to centre of town and also cricket ground if you want to go watch a match as we did. Lots of restaurants to choose from in town plus a couple of good ones very close by. Lots of see in Canterbury and surrounding area. Would highly recommend.

Excellent choix pour ce logement. Il est extrêmement propre, très bien rangé, il possède des rangements suffisants dans chaque chambre. Il a des équipements comme sèche-cheveux, cafetière, bouilloire et toute l’épicerie nécessaire pour débuter son séjour. Il est très facile de garer sa voiture grâce au parking gratuit juste derrière la maison. La maison est située dans une rue calme, dans le centre ville de Canterbury, à 3 min à pied de la rue principale et juste à côté d’un parc. Rachel a toujours été très réactive quand nous avions des questions. Nous recommandons vivement cette maison.

The property was beautifully presented and well equipped with everything our family needed. The central location is perfect for exploring Canterbury on foot and the allocated parking right alongside the property was a real bonus for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

We had a wonderful few days staying at Rachel’s property over Easter weekend. Surprised by how big it felt inside. Great to be in a gated area, felt very secure and safe. Quiet at night. Very close to the city centre, a brilliant location near to lovely walks along the river and the fascinating city walls. Rachel was a very helpful, understanding and friendly host. So responsive as well.
I would highly recommend staying at this property!

Amazing stay for family visiting in Canterbury, we enjoyed the lovely terrace outside in the sunshine and had a cuppa every morning from the coffee maker. The bedrooms were spacious and we had the most comfortable nights in Rachel’s place. Would definitely recommend for short stays.

Great place right by the high street. Rachel is very friendly and helpful and free to be contacted with any questions

Excellent location. Rachel was very quick to respond with anything and was accommodating and helpful. The place is roomy, comfortable, clean and well stocked. It has great amenities and conveniences. The bedding is nice. The bathrooms are roomy with nice showers and lots of towels. The little cul de sac is very quiet and the parking spot is a great amenity for the location. I imagine the patio is a lovely feature in warm weather too. It’s a very nice spot to stay and good value. I would definitely consider a Polygon Property on our next visit. Thank you Rachel.

Lovely house with private parking. Would recommend to all.
