We stayed one night while at a nearby wedding. The room is large and spacious. Clean, excellent shower and a great breakfast. The owners were very welcoming too. Wish we could have stayed longer, you never know we might find an excuse to come back!

We had 3 nights at this great B & B. Very close to Canterbury with the option of park & ride into Canterbury. We had a most enjoyable stay here with Stuart, the host, being most helpful & making sure our stay was most comfortable. Beds & pillows great with a wonderful view from our ground floor room.
