Traditional bedroom with double bed and ample storage space in large cottage, built 1733. It has not been overly modernised, but has central heating, modern shower/wetroom, and Wifi. I also have a very friendly Jack Russell!
Ideal base to explore East Kent.
Due to steps and stairs, not suitable for people with limited mobility.
Please note there's only one parking space (on my neighbours' drive), but there's also a layby 100 m from the house.
The bus stop is about 300 m away, on the main road.

The space
Double room in Kentish cottage: open fires, beams, etc. Not suitable for people with mobility problems. The room has a double bed, is carpeted, has central heating and a walk-in wardrobe. Shared bathroom next to room; also a wetroom downstairs. We have a piano and a big garden.
Towels, toiletries and a hairdryer are provided.
Please note both the pillows and duvet are filled with feathers, and I'm afraid I have no synthetic ones.
Breakfast is included: tea, coffee, fruit juice, cereal and / or as much toast and eggs as you can eat - though I'll happily provide other things if you give me enough warning :-)
We have a Jack Russel...she's very friendly, but this is not a good place for someone who doesn't like dogs!
The house is on a street off the main road in a quiet village between Canterbury and Sandwich. At the back of the house there's a field full of rabbits, squirrels and birds.
The house is about a mile away from Howletts wild animal park.
Good bus service to Sandwich and Canterbury - every 20 minutes through the day (not so good in the evening or on Sundays!) The bus takes about 10 minutes to get from Canterbury to Littlebourne; the bus stop is 300 metres away, on the main road.
Half hourly train service from Canterbury to London (St Pancras/Charing Cross or Victoria); the fastest takes just under an hour. National Express coaches (to Victoria) are usually much cheaper but take about two hours.
Apart from being just 4 miles from the world famous tourist destination of Canterbury and its spectacular medieval cathedral, the village of Littlebourne is surrounded by beautiful countryside, and the sea is within a half hour drive to the north, east and south....oysters at Whitstable, glorious sandy beaches of Thanet, Turner at Margate, Dickens at Broadstairs, birdwatching on the sand dunes at Sandwich, a pier and two Tudor castles at Deal, the White Cliffs and Castle at Dover (not to mention frequent ferries to France) - and there's Britain's only official desert at Dungeness, about an hour south west of Canterbury.

Guest access
All rooms downstairs and both bathrooms, but only their own bedroom!
Guests are welcome to relax in the garden, too.

Other things to note
My dog loves people, but hates all other animals, so very sadly, I cannot accommodate anyone else's pets.

It's quiet and rural. Canterbury is a very busy little town and I love it, but it is nice to get back to the peace and quiet of my garden.
I think the most important things to see here are Canterbury, and the coast: Dover, Whitstable, Broadstairs, Sandwich - depending on your tastes and amount of time available.

I have a 5 bedroom cottage, and I love having visitors! So I'm here on Airbnb to offer a room in an old Kentish cottage near Canterbury, and to make a bit of extra income! :-) I was a morris dancer for 27 years, and I am now secretary for a medieval dance group, and out of necessity I also do a lot of DIY and gardening.....I also enjoy sewing. I have done quite a lot of travelling in Europe, so I know well what it's like to be a foreigner and a guest! I speak reasonably fluent French and German. I used to be an English teacher, and have also hosted (and taught English to) foreign students. I have a daughter, who is 23 years old, and lives in London. I also have a Jack Russell, who is very good with people, but can be rather exuberant! - basically, this is not a good place if you don't like dogs! It is also no good if you have mobility problems - you can't avoid the steps and stairs. Some people find the staircase rather steep. I've lived in this house since I was born, and can probably answer any questions you have about this part of Kent.

During your stay
Usually quite a lot! I am usually at home whenever the guests are in. I usually make breakfast for guests, but if they don't want my company, they only have to say :-)
