Location, location, location. Right in the middle of Canterbury. This double room is just a few minutes walk from all this wonderful city has to offer including the cathedral & museums. The vibrant High Street is at the end of the road.
PLEASE NOTE - I am carrying out some small renovations on my house during autumn & winter 2017, therefore the room is offered at a discounted rate. I'm doing a bit of painting, having the stair carpet replaced & relaying a bit of the flooring in the lounge. I'm also having the chimney breast repaired in the bedroom as there is a slight leak causing a small damp patch. Until the work is completed my house could be described as clean & comfortable, but a little rough around the edges. I don't anticipate the work being too intrusive, but thought it fair to mention it. Description - This large, bright room in my Georgian cottage is right in the middle of the city. The High Street with its numerous shops & restaurants is at the end of our road, less than 2 minutes walk away. All of Canterbury's museums & Canterbury Cathedral are within a 5 minute walk. Westgate Towers are at the end of the road & the beautiful Westgate Gardens with the river Stour running through are straight accros the road, less than 1 minute away. The riverboat tours operate very close to us. Canterbury West train station for the fast service into London is a 5 minutes walk away. From here you can be in central London within 45-50 minutes. Canterbury West station also serves the Kent coast & Ashford for the high speed service to Paris & Brussels. Canterbury East train station is 10 minutes walk from here & takes you to Dover for the ferries to France & Belgium. Buses for the lovely coastal town Whitstable stop very close-by & the main bus station is a couple of minutes walk. From the house it's easy to explore the whole city without using any pubilc transport. The room has a newly fitted carpet.
We have fast wifi & good tv package. You are welcome to help yourself to tea, coffee & cereals etc. You may use the kitchen to cook & keep food if you wish. We only ask that you clean up after yourself. Towels are provided & there's a spare duvet kept in the wardrobe should it be needed.
The room has a double mattress, 2 chests of drawers, wardrobe & a full length mirror a small cupboard & a chair.
There are no hidden charges or extra charges for cleaning. There isn't parking with the property but there are plenty of car parks nearby & free parking on the road just a little further afield(about7 or 8 minutes walk). You can use the washing machine whenever you want. Being in the centre of the city, the area can occasionally be noisy, it's never bothered me as it's just background noise, mainly traffic, but it's something to bear in mind if your sleep is easily disturbed by noise.
The check-in time has been listed as 6pm, but this is worst case scenerio, in reality we should be able to meet you much earlier than this with prior arrangement.
If you're thinking of staying here just let me know a few things about yourself & what you are planning to do in Canterbury. No need for an essay, just a few sentences will do. I'm looking forward to meeting lots of new people over the next few months.
You're welcome to make yourself at home in the living room & use the kitchen when you wish. I share the place with my 2 housemates. They're really lovely people though you will probably never meet them as they are rarely in due to long working hours.
We like the house to be quiet after midnight & would appreciate you keeping the noise to the minimum if you are up early in the morning. Please don't wear outdoor shoes in the bedroom, the carpet is new. Shoes are fine on the wooden floor downstairs. Please only smoke outside.
I'll be available to offer help or advice if required for the duration of your stay.
Myself & Holly are friendly & welcoming,we have plenty of local knowledge so will do our best to help you where we can. We like meeting people from all over the place so here we are on Airb&b to welcome you! I have done a lot of travelling over Europe, Asia & Australia and have ambitions to take some time out to hire a camper to travel through America at my own pace. It's just a dream at the moment though. Holly has lived in Holland for a while. English & european students from the local colleges have stayed here previously this has been an enjoyable experience & provided inspiration to host Airb&b guests.
