Small single room in Victorian cottage in heart of Canterbury. It's cosy, clean and comfy; a quiet oasis in the heart of a busy city.
5 mins from station, 2 mins from theatre.
(There are two naughty cats here as well).
One pretty, small single bedroom. Single bed, towels, hanging space, shelves, a little desk and original victorian floor boards. There is usually a box of assorted useful items in there to borrow if you have forgotten things, a hair dryer, long mirror, and black out blinds.
The house is 100yards from the high street, and is suprisingly quiet. It's a great position to walk into or around all of Canterbury (the city is tiny).
I do not provide breakfast, but you are welcome to help yourself in the kitchen to tea or coffee.
The bathroom is shared with just me and has a new bath and good shower.
Parking is for residents only. However, the house is a maximum five minutes walk from Canterbury West Station. You can easily get a bus from down the road up to Kent Uni, or if you walk into town the bus station is probably 15 mins walk form the house. Sometimes I have parking permits available for overnight stays, but these are £5 each.
The Marlowe theatre is excellent (2 min walk away) and the Curzon cinema is just around the corner (5 mins). I'm a 20 min walk from Canterbury Christ Church Uni, and probably 40 min walk from Kent uni.
I usually rent to actors and musicians working at the theatre, and have been doing so for a long time, hence the large chunks of time which are already booked up.
Please don't be under any illusions, the room is 6ft x 12ft - space for all necessary items, but you can't fit another person in there with you!
I do my absolute best to have everything ready for your arrival - but I also work a lot, if there is a late change over then on the odd occasion the room might not be ready, but it will be done when I get back from work. I don't have check in/out times, come and go as you please.
There is a cleaner once a week, but the house was built in 1860 and I am renovating it, so despite the cleaner I have to say that old houses can be dusty. It is my home not a hotel after all; it's cute and characterful, but Clardiges it is not.
If you can't cope with cats this is not the house for you. The cats are cute but are tiny tearaways, and will stick their nose in your luggage and expect attention.
And finally please do ask if you need something - even if i'm not there i'm reachable by my mobile, I am a psychologist by profession, but unfortunately not a mind reader (yet)!
You're welcome to use the kitchen for breakfast/dinner: tea and coffee by the kettle, cereal in the cupboards, and bread in the freezer.
The bathroom is shared, new, and contains a bath and a hot shower. Again, use as you wish.
GARDEN and REST OF HOUSE
A work in progress.... i'm renovating!
Mostly people stay who are working in Canterbury and we are all busy, but if i'm around i'm usually up for a pint or offer you some wine!
No smoking in the house. If you smoke outside please put butts in the bin.
Please wash up / put away if using the kitchen.
After using the shower please open the window, there's no extractor fan.
Not be fussed by two cats who will want know exactly what's in your suitcase and stick their nose into everything. I've tried training them, they aren't the most polite beasts you'll ever meet, but they are very cute.
If you need anything you must ask.
