My small cosy one bedroom flat comfortably sleeps two sharing. It is located on a quiet residential street, has a private internal courtyard parking space and is a short walk from the city centre. It's location has fantastic transport links to London and mainland Europe.

The space

With my carpentry skills I have created a space that has a strong theme based around reclaimed wood. It has a cosy living space with custom built stairs leading to a converted loft space. The bed space has cosy and unique feel to it, having designed and built the bed myself. The kitchen is small but has everything you should require for your stay.

Guest access

Guests will have full and private access to the entire flat and the private parking space. There is also wireless internet available in the flat for those who require it.

The flat is part of a block of five, the neighbours are very nice, polite and quiet, so would request that guests respect this.
The flat has had a new carpet fitted recently, so I would appreciate that shoes are removed at the entrance.
One last request, please could guests not be tempted to take drinks such as wine,coffee or tea up into the bed in the loft. Many thanks!

We only stayed at the loft for one night but we absolutely would habe loved to stay longer. It is a cozy little place with everything we needed. Also a good walking distance from the town center which was great.

James' place was very clean, well-stocked, and the perfect restful spot for my husband and I to stay for the night. It's in a good location and wasn't difficult to find. I highly recommend James' flat!

I was in contact with David, who was looking after the place in place of James. He was very very informative, leaving very descriptive instructions on how to get to the flat and where to park and how to get the key. The flat was very nice. It is a little bit of a walk to get to most of the city, but that was expected, as we saw the location of the flat before booking. David even left a pack of croissants for us to enjoy, as well as some beer and basic accompaniments in the fridge. The only small complaint we had was that the restroom had a very strong odor. It was weird because the smell was so strong, but after a few hours, it went away. I am wondering if it is the smell of the pipes being shared with another flat, or something like that. Other than that, no complaints. Be careful when turning on the hallway light, it will dim and light up automatically if you do not adjust the dimmer. It spooked us when we were coming back at night, already spooked from some of the city. It made a memorable experience, though. Thanks, David, for your kindness and hospitality. You ensured we had a great stay!!

This flat was very charming! I really admired the custom woodwork and creative use of space. It was very quiet at night and the bed was very comfortable. The walk to Canterbury center isn't bad at all and you can easily call a cab to get you to the train station. I'd recommend taking the scenic walk along the river at least once--it's so peaceful and pretty!

Hi, I am a local carpenter based in Canterbury but regularly travel to mainland Europe for work. This is my flat and have made the majority of furnishings myself and have made it very simple and cosy. I am seemingly in Holland more regularly which means the flat is sitting there…
