Comfort and Quality has been the main criteria. Designed for two, they offer the ultimate self-catering experience; an oasis of calm from which to discover this area's rich heritage. Great emphasis has been put into providing everything needed to make your stay unforgettable Set in a pretty courtyard, these two cottages are designed for a relaxing, rejuvenating getaway. Situated between Sandwich and Canterbury, we are ideally placed for visiting this outstanding area of England; along with easy access to ports for trips to France and beyond. Kent International Airport and Dover Docks are 25 minutes away (we are not on the flight path!), and Ashford International Station for Eurostar is around 45 minutes drive. These two charming cottages nestle in the hamlet of Shatterling, a beautiful part of the county of Kent, within easy reach of Canterbury, (a UNESCO site). Sandwich, described as one of the most complete medieval towns in England is 5 minutes by car, or head out into the beautiful countryside for days spent walking or birdwatching. If history is your thing, the ancient castles of Deal, Walmer, Richborough and Dover are all within easy reach. Other ideas may include a day trip to Paris via Eurostar or ferry to Boulogne and Calais; or stay with these shores and enjoy a day fishing, golfing or a refreshing coastal walk. This is the perfect location for exploring the best that Kent has to offer. Since opening in 2009, we have consistently been awarded 4* Gold award with Visit England. New for this year, Nespresso coffee machine. More

Excellent communication and friendly service. Accommodation was lovely and comfortable with everything we needed. Location was great with easy access to Canterbury, Sandwich and the Kent coast. It was lovely to have outdoor space and we even managed to sit outside on the odd occasion!...More

I have no hesitation in recommending Canterbury Cottages. The cottage is delightful, immaculately clean, the garden beautiful and the hosts exceptionally friendly and efficient. I look forward to our next stay there.

We had a very good week. There were lots of things supplied that are not usually supplied in self-catering. The table and chairs outside were welcome as our week was hot and dry. The walk-in shower worked well.

About the neighbourhood
Ideally situated to visit all that our area has to offer. Dover Castle, Deal Castle, Walmer Castle, all within 20 minutes. The seaside towns of Ramsgate, Margate with the Turner Contemporary Gallery and Dreamland, Broadstairs with Charles Dickens house, Whitstable with it's oysters and great harbour area - (I could go on!) all within 20-30 minutes. Just down the road (3 miles) is Sandwich, a fantastic mediaeval town with the most timber framed building in England. Inland there is Canterbury, the seat of Christianity with it's marvellous cathedral and St Augustine's Abbey. Not to mention Tenterden, Tunbridge Wells, all worth a visit. Sissinghurst and Scotney have wonderful gardens, and there are several large shopping outlets too.
Getting around
We have a 20 minute bus service from a stop 50 yards from the cottages, running to Canterbury, Deal and Sandwich. From there you can reach Whitstable and surrounding areas
