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 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!

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.

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.

A home rather than a house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely clean, comfortable and well thought out, with everything needed available. It was exactly as in the photos, but even better in real life. The owners, whom we didn't meet, obviously want to give people the best experience possible and there were lots of personal touches to prove it. Once we had been in there for a day it seemed like a home, rather than just a house - more like staying in a friend's or relation's house while they were away (with the consequent need to treat it with care as well as enjoy it - it is an old house after all). The back bedroom has a double bed, while the front bedroom has two single beds, fine for my wife and me, along with two children 18 - 21 years old who don't mind sharing a room. Although there is technically space for six, I think it would be best for four people. Extremely handy for the city centre as everything is within walking distance for anyone. The parking is very good too, although if you arrive in a big car, it is easier to go to the end of Ivy Lane and turn the car, then come back 30 yards into St. Pauls Terrace

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your lovely feedback, future guests really value reading these comments before they make a commitment to stay at our cottage. Also thank you for the way you looked after our home- even replenishing some of the sundries such as coffee. You and your family were excellent guests- thank you.

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.
