About Two Doves Cottage

Two Doves Cottage offers you a great combination, a city centre cottage with a distinct country feel inside. The owners have tastefully designed this cottage with great attention to detail. Open plan living with an inviting living / dining space extending into a fully equipped kitchen gives you a spacious feel when entering the cottage.

In a wonderful central location yet tucked away in a little lane, walk to town in minutes and explore Canterbury at your leisure. From Cathedrals to river trips, an extensive array of shops, boutiques, theatre shows, live music, plenty restaurants and bars to choose from, there is so much to do in the cathedral city. Walk the other way and enjoy the open countryside, great for walks or go on a cycle ride to Chilham, where Jane Austen's 'Emma' was filmed, or along the coast to Whitstable via the Crab & Winkle Way. The owner is a cycle enthusiast and is happy to provide tours and advice on request.

The living room benefits from a real open fire, great for chillier nights when the day draws to a close. On warmer days, retreat to your cottage and enjoy a well deserved beverage in the pretty sunny garden. And there is always upstairs where a sumptuous and inviting bedroom awaits you where recharging is a must, ready for another day in the Cathedral city....

August 2016

"On arrival we found ourselves in the most charming cottage. Beautifully and tastefully decorated throughout - and so very comfortable. All the personal touches (wine, snacks, nibbles, millionaires shortbread & milk) made the welcome very personal along with the lovely 'hello' card and fresh flowers in every room. We were within easy walking distance of Canterbury & enjoyed so much that the city had to offer. Your information book was very helpful & we were so pleased with the Italian restaurant recommendation (the food & staff equally wonderful). We would highly recommend it along with the 'Goods Shed' A perfect place to stay - Thank you."


"If this is your first venture into holiday lets you are already old hands as all is superb. All blissfully comfy and beautifully decorated. Thanks also for your charming flowers and the wine and snacks - very thoughtful. We've really enjoyed our stay and wish you well for the future. PS - Love the herb window box."
