Accommodation Description:

Of all the hotels in Canterbury few have as many stories to tell as this historic lodge which has been providing a warm welcome to travellers for almost three centuries. With nine comfy rooms with en suite shower rooms and its own cosy pub serving a menu of hearty freshly cooked food it s the perfect place to enjoy some rest and relaxation. Although there s so much to see and do you won't want to put your feet up for too long.

Canterbury is one of England s most beautiful cities and its jewel in the crown is Canterbury Cathedral which is a pleasant six-minute stroll away. You can also explore the intriguing shops of King s Mile take a ghost tour visit Canterbury University or take a summer boat-trip along the River Stour. There is plenty to keep you busy further afield in Kent like wildlife spotting in Blean Woods or a day at the seaside in Herne Bay or Whitstable.
