The beautiful medieval city of Canterbury has much to offer with history at every turn! Originally settled in Saxon times it was later taken over by the Romans, whose presence remains with the largely intact City walls and various Roman ruins scattered throughout the city.
Canterbury was also home to Geoffrey Chaucer's famous Canterbury Tales which are well depicted in a museum entirely dedicated to them in the city centre.
The 'Kings Mile', which is Canterbury's most diverse and culturally unique shopping district, is situated in the shadow of the Cathedral. This pedestrian-friendly environment has plenty of places to stop off, relax and shop, all in historic buildings.
The skyline of the City is dominated by the Norman Cathedral (which can be seen from the apartment) which, together with St Augustine's Abbey has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Cathedral, the Crypt and the peaceful Cloisters are worth a whole day's visit in themselves.
The pedestrianised cobbled High Street and narrow lanes leading off it house an eclectic and interesting mix of boutiques as well as all the main high street shops. An excellent new development at the south end of the High Street ensures that Canterbury is a city where you can shop till you drop! An open air market is held in the High Street on Wednesdays and Saturdays where many bargains can be found. The city boasts a myriad of bars and restaurants offering menus from all four corners of the world to suit all budgets

Great place, even better then the description!!! Really enjoyed!!!
The cathedral view apartments were fantastic and beautifully located I will use them again in the future.
My wife and I were visiting our grandson who was studying in Canterbury. We wanted a 2 bedroom apartment so that he could spend time with us. Cathedral View was the perfect solution. The location, just a few steps away from the cathedral and right in the middle of city activity, was wonderful. We were there during a festival and the streets were crowded with people, yet, in the apartment we enjoyed total quiet. It was much more spacious than we expected, extremely clean and well kept, and all of the appliances were first class. Mulberry Cottages was a great organization to deal with.
What a wonderful time we had at Cathedral View. comfortable, well appointed, central and very flexible staff who handled our last minute changes of date so well. All were very helpful. Thank you for a great stay.

Mr. J. H., July 2011
We were welcomed very, very nicely. On arrival we got all the information necessary, even the parking of our car was checked and three heavy cases were brought into our apartment for us. This was extremely nice and helpful, arriving in Canterbury with three chidren after an 8 hour journey! We had a really great and relaxing time at Cathedral View - great people, great place - we would love to come back!! Thank you for everything.
