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.

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 Kent

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!

City centre sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

What a find! Where else would you find a bolt hole minutes from the wonderful city of Canterbury, with every amenity you could wish for, including two pretty gardens perfectly designed as chill-out areas and your own parking space? Had the most relaxing time here and the owner's have thought of everything. Would thoroughly recommend the property.

Location Location Location !!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is ideal if you are looking for a nice quiet place to stay just a few minutes walk away from all the shops, bars and restaurants that Canterbury has to offer.

A short drive away was Howletts wildlife park, well worth a visit !

You can just chill around the property as if it was your own.

One thing I would mention is that the stairs are a little steep and probably would not suit elderly people.

Apart from that it was a great place to stay.

Try it for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is definitely a 'hidden gem' the cottage was exactly as described lots of little touches to make you feel at home. The location is perfect only minutes away from the centre and the added bonus of a car parking space was very welcome. If you want to go to Canterbury then you must stay here!

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.
