Bed and Breakfast Canterbury

Canterbury is a wonderful historic city based in the heart of Kent. Explore everything it has to offer in the home away from home experience of The Potting Shed B&B Canterbury

Sat on the River Stour, Canterbury is a beautiful historic English cathedral city and UNESCO World Heritage Site, situated in the county of Kent, England.

Canterbury is consistently one of the most-visited cities in the United Kingdom and it’s easy to see why it’s a popular tourist destination

Many historical building and structures fill the city, including the Roman city walls, the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and a stunning Norman castle, and the King’s School, the oldest school in the world.

Modern additions to Canterbury include the Marlowe Theatre which hosts live plays, comedy and musical touring companies throughout the year, and the St Lawrence Ground, the home of Kent County Cricket.

There is also a substantial student population, brought about by the presence of the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, the University for the Creative Arts, and the Girne American University Canterbury campus.

Canterbury is the perfect place to give you a taste of all life’s essentials gives you a little bit of everything.

If you want to get away from the busy noise of big city life, Canterbury is perfect for you. But the connections into central London couldn’t be better. Canterbury in on the HighSpeed Line which will get you into London within 55 minutes too

Canterbury has more than it’s fair share of iconic and breathtaking landmarks.

Canterbury Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Anglican Communion and seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury and with more than one million visitors per year, it is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the country. It is still an active place of worship with services held at the cathedral several times a day.

The Roman Museum is home to a truly stunning mosaic pavement dating from around 300 AD. Surviving structures from the Roman times in Canterbury include The Queningate, a blocked gate in the city wall, and once part of a Roman cemetery the Dane John Mound. The beautiful Dane John Gardens were built beside the mound in the late 18th century, and the mound’s summit features a memorial.

The ruins of the Norman Canterbury Castle and St Augustine’s Abbey are both open to the public are both very popular when the weather is good

The medieval St Margaret’s Church now houses “The Canterbury Tales”, where life-sized character models reconstruct the world-famous Geoffrey Chaucer’s stories.

The Westgate is now a museum relating to its history as a jail.

The city centre contains many timber-framed 16th and 17th century houses, however, there are far fewer than there were before the Second World War, as many were damaged during the Baedeker Blitz.

The restaurant scene in Canterbury offers a wide variety of dining options for those of you who are foodies. From daytime sandwich bars through to nighttime dining options for locals and visitors. If it’s a drink you’re after, pubs and bars are plentiful.

But it’s not just about food, if you a bit of retail therapy too, with high-end clothes, homeware, and garden shops all there for you.

The shopping options in Canterbury are easy, to say the least, with a number of chain stores and independent shops sharing the high st area.

Testimonials

Our stay in Cathy and Geordie’s Potting Shed was superb.  The ‘Shed’ is really a luxury retreat – very comfortable, set in their beautiful garden although we felt secluded from the house. They have brought the surrounding countryside ‘inside’ by choosing natural colour schemes and fabrics which reflect country colours. Our little granddaughter, whom we were visiting, loved the pouffe  – it must have looked like a forest to her! Cathy thought of everything! She provided an excellent range of consumable items in the kitchen area; she informed us about the heating and hot water and she gave us her contact numbers in case we had any questions. All in all, we enjoyed a lovely relaxing few days in Wickhambreaux.

What a wonderful find this was! Such a quiet and remote area but also very close to restaurants and pubs so the location really was perfect! The accommodation was perfect for two with personal touches here and there and absolutely everything you can think of for breakfast, taking into account peoples different needs ie healthy options. It was extremely tidy and clean and very welcoming! Not to forget the lovely hosts Cathy and Geordie who respected our privacy but also welcomed us warmly and helped recommend places to visit nearby. I couldn’t recommend this place more!

 

Keeley

Outstanding B&B. Absolutely loved it. Extremely well presented and comfortable. Easy walk to great local pubs for dinner. Very close to gardens and attractions. The best B & B we have stayed in. Highly recommended.

Better than a hotel. The Potting Shed is an ideal location to get away. This accommodation has been outfitted to a high standard and is in an idyllic location outside Canterbury. We loved it and highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed. Cathy and Geordie are fabulous hosts.

This is a wonderful place to stay, near Canterbury, and located in a fine nature setting in a typical age old village. Cathy is an attentive host, we were at home here and all was more than perfect! Thank you, and we hope to visit you again one fine day 🙂

This is a beautiful, peaceful place surrounded by birds tucked away in the beautiful village of Wickhambreaux. Local walks and countryside were lovely with local pubs within walking distance from the house. Cathy and Geordie welcomed us warmly on our arrival. The shed is beautifully decorated, clean and well organized to make you feel comfortable and at home. The private patio is a plus to the house as it give you a private place in the garden. They are very generous with the breakfast supplies and lots of nibble too. If you are looking for a place to stay in Wickhambreaux, this will be the place you will love.

“Just spent a week at Cathy and Geordie’s brilliant ‘Potting Shed’, it is so much more than a B&B, it’s a home away from home. Beautiful accommodation and grounds, lots to do and see in the surroundings. If you want to spend a couple of days in the Canterbury arena, look no further, this is it!!”
