Augustine's Cottage is an enchanting centrally located cottage just a stone's throw Canterbury's city walls. The cottage is perfect for short breaks wit a myriad of pubs, restaurants, theatres, attractions and idyllic beaches all within very easy reach either by car or on public transport.
Located within the triangle of UNESCO'S World Heritage sites of St. Martin's Church, St. Augustine's Abbey and Canterbury Cathedral itself, this holiday home gives you the feel of staying in the heart of the countryside whilst being in the heart of one of the country's most historic, mesmerising and intriguing cities.
There are two beautifully decorated bedrooms, one of which enjoys Cathedral views, whilst the other has the benefit of an opulent ensuite bathroom with roll top bath. The ensuite bedroom also enjoys a typical French flavour with antique headboard and wardrobe giving the room a real sense of 'ooh la la!'
Downstairs there are are light and spacious reception rooms with Internet, Sky TV, and Wii available. The beautiful and original pine flooring adds a wonderful touch of richness whilst the gas flame effect fire will keep you 'toastie' whilst you enjoy a glass of something!
We are happy to accept well behave dogs and the cottage enjoys the rare privilege of 24 hour access to the grounds of St. Augustine's Abbey where you can walk your four-legged companions.
The property enjoys private front and back gardens which add to the feel of countryside, privacy and space.
Whilst there are two bedrooms - double deb and two singles which can make a kingsize bed, there is a double bed settee in the lounge if required.
The cottage really is a quintessential English 'Hidden gem'.
