About This Listing
This charming 1-Bedroom Cottage is situated in the pretty Village of Chilham, minutes from Canterbury.
The Property is located in an idyllic Courtyard Setting within the grounds of Chilham Castle, just behind the Village Square.
Chilham is a quintessential English Village surrounded by lakes & woodland - it boasts 2 Pubs, a Tea Room, Gift Shop and Village Store.
The City of Canterbury is easily accessible via Train or Bus, and London is only 25 minutes away (via Ashford International Station).
I arrived quite late at night from Chilham station, where there are no cabs and Neil very kindly stayed awake so that he could guide me in, in the pitch dark, over the telephone, I was using it as a base whilst working in Canterbury, which is a short train ride or cab, once it gets dark. The cottage is immaculately clean and in a perfect spot for spectacular walks and the village is absolutely charming. Neil was very solicitous and kept checking by text that I had everything I needed. One of the plus points is that the cottage has a sweet exterior porch with table and chairs and gets the full blast of the morning sun (when it's there!) A perfect breakfast spot.
Had a wonderful two day stay. Did not meet Liz, but the arrangements to get the keys were flawless. She had an ipad with lots of useful information that helped alot.
The location was perfect - quiet and peaceful, yet only a 10 min walk into the village, which was very pretty.
The cottage was super clean and comfortable. Liz left breakfast fixings - cereal, bread, jam, coffee, tea and milk - made mornings easy. Parking was a breeze. Internet worked well. All in all, a great stay. Thanks, Liz!
Neil picked us up in the center of Chilham, because we did not find the cottage at once. He explained everything in detail and was very helpful concerning the connections to Canterbury we wanted to know. The cottage was very spacious with the bedroom upstairs.
Chilham is a charming little village with a nice central place and two pubs where you can get some delicious food. We also loved the surrounding countryside - very nice for a walk.
After much last-minute searching this appeared on our radar and was absolutely perfect. I can safely say that all of the feedback left so far for here is 100%. Neil and Liz made us very welcome at the property. The inclusion of some breakfast items was a very nice touch too. The property was spotless and set in the nicest location... ideal for days out on the coast. The village was beautiful and we'd recommend The Woolpack (one of two pubs in the village) as a local... only a 10 minute stroll. All in all the property was perfect for us and we'd definitely come back again.
Accurate description. Made to feel welcome. Useful info on arrival. GREAT PLACE. Loved it. Would come again without a doubt. Thank you very much!
The cottage was very clean and cosy and well kitted out. We enjoyed cooking simple meals in the kitchen, which had the basics there ready to use plus a few things for breakfast. Shower was a little temperamental but nice bath. Netflix/Wifi very welcome and we certainly made the most of this on a wet morning during our stay!
Absolutely perfect place to stay for our wedding night after getting married at the village hall. The place was spotless and is in such a beautiful location. Hosts left clear instructions on how to use everything inside and the wifi / iPad is extremely useful. Drinks / bread / jam / milk / tea all waiting for you on arrival as well. Would thoroughly recommend this for anybody wanting to visit Canterbury. Thank you ever so much!

We had a very enjoyable stay in this lovely and peaceful little cottage. Chilham is a charming old village and ideally situated for visiting Canterbury and the Kent coast. Neil met us on arrival and was very helpful and easy to contact when we had a couple of queries. For those who require it, the wireless internet was quick and Netflix works well.
