Rachel is an excellent host and very responsive. We are a family of four and the house was just the right size as well as being cosy and quaint like the rest of central Canterbury.

The house is brilliantly located close to the High St and Marlowe Theatre. Off street parking and access to the car park is very convenient. The house is equipped with everything you need for an extended stay, including convenient additions like spare clean bedding.

Would strongly recommend. We would certainly stay again.

Great stay, perfect location close enough to the city centre but far away from the busy roads so you have a nice quiet night away from the main roads

We had a lovely time in Canterbury staying at Rachel's property. When my wife asked if there was a fan available, Rachel was quick to reply and let us know where to find them. We also very much enjoyed having tea and coffee available after a long day of travel.

Thank you so much for having us to stay. We absolutely loved your property and would love to stay here again. We felt so comfortable and at home and felt your property was exactly as described. Rachel was a fabulous, responsive host and we couldn’t have asked for more. The location is fabulous for picking up supplies, exploring the city centre and has excellent nearby transport links for travelling further afield. Thank you for helping make our trip such a lovely memorable one x
