Overview

About the property

A beautifully presented and fully equipped Victorian cottage with parking.

An idyllic and quintessential English cottage set in a quiet cul-de-sac of just 10 cottages less than 5 minutes' walk from Canterbury's historic and vibrant city centre. The property which boasts both front and back gardens, Canterbury Cathedral views, 2 bedrooms, stunning decor and all mod cons sleeps up to 6 people is one of the very few cottages in the middle of Canterbury which is also pet friendly. Please note that, as is typical in cottages of this type, the stairs are quite steep to the bedrooms.

About Chris Perkins

Deb and I (Chris) both teachers bought the cottage with the view of it becoming our first holiday let. Our first guest, Mr. Sinclair arrived 7 September, 2015. We bought the cottage after our son attended Kent University and we fell in love with the city. The cottage's location is perfect and even negates the need to permanently have a car at your disposal, even though there is designated parking outside the cottage.

We are still discovering all that Canterbury and the surrounding area has to offer and every time we venture out, there is something new to thrill and enjoy.

Our cottage welcomes considerate pet owners as we too have two Westies who have enjoyed time there as we prepared the cottage for guests.

Chris Perkins purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Chris Perkins chose Canterbury

Charm, comfort and location, coupled with all mod cons and its own parking space - what more could you want?

What makes this cottage unique

Being able to walk into Canterbury city in less than three minutes yet enjoy a quiet and tranquil location. One of the very few pet friendly cottages within the heart of Canterbury and now with its own designated parking space outside the property. Has to be a win win!

Cosy, comfortable well equipped cottage in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant not having to take the car out once we had made use of the invaluable parking space. Lovely to walk around and soak up the atmosphere of Canterbury and then return to relax and enjoy the facilities of the cottage. A much needed break for all of us. Particular thanks for the welcome pack.

A really cute, tucked away, cottage but just a stones throw from City Walls!

  • 5 of 5

A charming cottage tucked away. Superb welcome pack and the property was clean and really comfortable. Superb spot for Canterbury as you can stroll into the Centre yet still just hop on the ring road to explore this part of Kent. The real blessing has got to be the parking space, much needed in Canterbury Centre!

Romantic house close to everything in Canterbury.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our six-night stay in Canterbury. Five minutes from the main bus station with easy access to Dover and the rest of Kent. Short walk to Canterbury Cathedral and the rich history of the town. Two comfortable bedrooms, incredibly equipped kitchen, and a great backyard patio. Bottle of wine and fresh flowers greeted us on arrival. One of the best places - at a reasonable cost - that we have used in many years of traveling.

Augustine's Cottage is set in a quiet row of just 10 quintessential English cottages providing a very quiet location yet within sight and a 3 minute walk of the historic and vibrant city centre of Canterbury.

The cottage is positioned centrally between the 3 UNESCO World Heritage sights of St. Augustine's Abbey, St . Martin's Church, the oldest functioning church in Britain and, of course, Canterbury Cathedral itself.

Despite its city centre location, the peace and tranquility of countryside and beach are both within a short bus, car or cycle ride.

Canterbury and its surroundings has so much to offer that it will cater for the needs of even the most discerning traveller.

Augustine's Cottage is equipped with everything to make your holiday as comfortable, enjoyable and memorable as possible. It comes with Sky TV, Wii, bluetooth sound bar, blueray and dvd player, wifi, washing machine, dishwasher, beautiful roll top bath, and, unusually for Canterbury, large front and back gardens and much, much more.
