"A great place to stay in Canterbury"
We have family in Whitstable but chose to stay in Canterbury when we couldn't find anywhere there. Canterbury is a lovely looking city with lots to do for all ages. Whitstable was an easy bus journey away from just around the corner.
Cedar Lodge was exactly as described and perfect for us. We were mum and dad with two of our kids and a friend for each of them. The large double room upstairs also housed the sofa bed so we took that room with the two 9 year olds. The second bedroom housed the teenage boys which gave them some freedom to stay up late watching their own TV so they were very happy. Lots of open plan space to spread out. Decor really smart. Only reason I put 4 stars for service is that we didn't meet anyone there apart from by chance as we left. But all the booking and information service was very smooth.

"Lovely holiday home in the heart of Canterbury"
A lovely home from home, set back from the road in a private courtyard with parking and within easy walking distance to the city centre. Cedar House is very spacious, well equipped and tastefully decorated throughout. Excellent value for money and Sebastian was very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

"Perfect for a quick getaway with family/friends wanting to visit Canterbury."
Lovely Scando-chic design with private and very accessible carpark. The house is well thought out, and having the two bedrooms on different floors offers privacy. All amenities you could wish for during a short stay. Location great - a short stroll to Canterbury High Street. The owner was very friendly and proffered some great local knowledge. I'd be happy to return there or recommend to friends.

"Lovely accomodation in the heart of Canterbury"
This is a lovely property. The location is fantastic! It's super close to the city centre, but still very private and peaceful. I lived in Canterbury for two years and must say that this property is really unique and a much better deal than staying at any of the hotels in the area! The kitchen is well-equipped, there is a private garden, and huge windows overlooking the garden. Everything in the rental is clean and in great shape. There's a really nice bathtub upstairs and a shower in the 'pod' (separate bedroom) if you prefer. The owner Sebastian was really lovely, and was super helpful with all of our questions. Stay here, you won't find a nicer place. It is a hidden gem and we will definitely return.

"Unique house ideally situated"
We have just returned from a lovely holiday staying at the Cedar House, Old Fire Station in Canterbury. This property is ideally situated within walking distance of the City centre known for it's cobbled streets, fantastic shops and restaurants.
Sebastian was the perfect host answering any questions that we may have had and recommending some lovely places to visit.
We even managed to spend a magical day in Bruge as Cedar House is only 30 minutes away from the Channel Tunnel.
We would love to return.....If you will have us!
