A beautifully presented 16th Century house located just outside the city walls and almost within sight of the cathedral spires. This pretty half-timbered property has charm and history aplenty and provides comfortable accommodation for up to 3 people. The cosy living area has an original inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove for those winter evenings curled up with a book. The open plan kitchen and dining area has been creatively fitted with bespoke designed concealed cupboards. Majestic Canterbury cathedral and the main shopping area Whitefriars are just 5 minutes walk, together with an array of restaurants, cafes, independent shops and museums to visit - all within a short stroll. The gardens of St Augustine's Abbey are on the doorstep where you can take the dog for a walk. Alternatively bring your bikes (storage for bikes is in the courtyard) and head out of the city, for a day exploring the many nearby beautiful villages and enjoy a pub lunch. After a day of sightseeing, just relax in the sunny enclosed courtyard garden, planted with pretty shrubs and climbing roses. Shop: 200 yards Pub:100 yards Coast: 8.7 miles

Having been away from Canterbury for many years my partner and I wanted to visit and with out little Jack Russell in tow we were looking for a place where we could lock the door and not worry about her. We found it with Ivy Lane...this is a wonderful little house located just outside the city walls of Canterbury. Just a few minutes walk and you are at in the city center with all the history, restaurants and shopping the city has to offer. A wood burner and period features make this place very cozy. 'Queenie' (the Jack Russell) was made very welcome with bowls and some treats. Tea and coffee was awaiting us....all in all a wonderful and magical place. So much so that we have stayed twice now and will be re-booking again for our next Canterbury trip.....this feels like a home from home. One point of note for people booking from North America, this is a small house. A great alternative to a hotel, but do not think a large house. Book for a couple (and dog), but not for a family.....that said I refer to my previous comments and this place will not disappoint. Mr Lawrence Ewing - 21st October 2018
