Excellent accommodation in the cabin. Great facilities in the wooden cabin - an ensuite and microwave, kettle and fridge. Spacious with room to sleep five and our dog could come too! 10 mins walk into Canterbury centre. Lovely cooked breakfast, good value.

With direct high-speed train services into London and the main entry route into/out of the UK to Europe, this really is a great stop over point.
