Rent self catering holiday cottages in and around the historic city of Canterbury in Kent

Although a much smaller city that many in the UK, Canterbury is not only the seat of the most famous and senior bishop – the Archbishop of Canterbury, principal leader of the Church of England, the symbolic head of the worldwide Anglican Communion – but also one of the most visited city in the UK. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site simply overflowing with history and historical buildings, including the city walls dating back to Roman times, substantial ruins of an important Norman castle, Canterbury Cathedral (founded in 597), Abbeys, schools and an association with a clutch of saints.

Cosmopolitan cafes, restaurants and bars offer self caterers the ultimate treat! - suitable for the whole family or a couple on quick weekend romantic city break. Many of the cottages are within easy driving distance of Canterbury and offer a more rural experience in one of England's most sought after holiday destinations.
