Property code: OC-CT030

A cosy and captivating Kent retreat, this Georgian terrace – a former worker’s cottage – in central Canterbury makes a welcoming base for a family or friends exploring the town’s historic buildings, museums, galleries and theatre. Westgate Gardens, with scenic paths beside the River Stour, is a very short walk from the property, as is the beautiful Canterbury Cathedral. A river boat tour is a wonderful way to take in the medieval town, with evening tours particularly enchanting. Back on dry land, Canterbury is surrounded by lush, rolling countryside and pretty villages, and is just over 6.5 miles from the classic British seaside resort of Whitstable, with its shingle beach, beach huts and seafood restaurants.

This delightful heritage property has accommodation on two floors and has been sensitively restored to present period charm alongside modern comforts. The lounge is a cosy, inviting room, with sofas gathered around a feature fireplace. There’s a smart dining room with another feature fireplace and a dining table and chairs, and, adjacent, a galley-style kitchen with wooden worktops and a Belfast sink. A bathroom with a bath and an overhead shower completes the accommodation on this floor. Up on the first floor via a cottage-style staircase are two handsome bedrooms – one double and one twin – both offering ample storage.

Outdoors, an enclosed rear courtyard with dining furniture provides a peaceful setting for relaxing with an al fresco coffee or a meal in good weather.

This has to be one of the best located rental properties, with a private car park, in the centre of Canterbury.
