About Apple Tree Cottage

This lovely Kent farm cottage is in an idyllic setting in a rural valley near the medieval city of Canterbury. The holiday cottage is set on its own with amazing views in all directions offering total peace and quiet and yet within a few minutes of Canterbury.

This Canterbury cottage has recently been converted from an original barn with tasteful traditional furnishings, lots of character and a warm and cosy feel. There are several pubs within a good walking distance offering good pub food and several restaurants, featuring the local seafood specialities for you to sample. For more ideas on places to visit in the Canterbury area or in the wider region of Kent and East Sussex please look at our things to do section on the website.

"Fantastic cottage in a beautiful and peaceful part of Kent. We had a wonderful stay at Apple Tree Cottage and loved the farm and surrounding area. The cottage is cosy, warm and comfortable with beautiful views of the valley and we enjoyed watching the abundant wildlife that surrounds the farm. Diana and David were warm and welcoming hosts and we hope to visit again soon. Perfect for a quiet getaway for two!"

"A wonderful place to stay ! Beautiful surroundings and great views from all windows. The open-plan living area opens onto the garden and the whole cottage is tastefully decorated and comfortable. The owners are friendly and helpful and kindly left welcome gifts on the table (the best we've ever had - thank you). We would definitely recommend this holiday barn."
