A further attic bedroom, also used as a study has a single day bed. The larger double bedrooms could easily accommodate cots and put you up beds for parents with young children.

About the location

Ideal location for all tastes and ages with plenty of culture, shopping and history as well as beaches and countryside. Westbere is a tranquil gem in the garden of England, with Sturry station in walking distance and fast trains to London. Canterbury is a short drive (15 mins) and we commute on a daily basis. Fantastic shopping centres nearby (Canterbury, Ashford outlet), plenty of places to visit (Turner Contemporary, Margate and Dickens birthplace at Broadstairs) with several swimming pools (Canterbury, Faversham) as well as local beaches. Fabulous countryside with lakes and walks nearby and lots of country pubs.
