Fantastic cottage in perfect location 4.8/5

We had a wonderful stay at Dovetail Cottage. It was beautifully decorated and styled, the location was fantastic. The owner was very friendly and accommodating and provided lots of helpful information. The cottage had everything we needed for a week long stay. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Canterbury!
