A rare and magical find for families, Honeywood offers a relaxing retreat, with indoor heated pool complex and games room. Once a breakout place for the owners three sons, now an exclusive holiday home.

The lodge is wonderfully private, with the several decked verandahs offering tree lined, far reaching country views across the gardens, you could easily forget you are only five minutes from the city of Canterbury. Fully opening bi-folding doors bring the outdoors in to the pool complex. With the owners rarely in residence, the manicured gardens and football play area, will also be yours to explore.

In addition to the games area, and pool the upper floors host two of the three bedrooms. There are two double beds and a twin bedroom. A nicely equipped kitchenette awaits with all the essentials to feed a brood.

Honeywood Lodge is a wonderfully surprising holiday let, so much included in your unforgettable stay. Ideal for families looking to get away from it all, but still close to the action.

Honeywood Lodge is located on the edge of Canterbury, between the City and nearby seaside town of Whitstable. If you can pull yourself away from this amazing destination property, Canterbury city centre is less than a five minute drive away and offers a variety of historical sights for the grown ups and kids alike.

Wonderful weekend break,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
We had a wonderful stay at Honeywood Lodge with our young family. Everything was accommodated for and my children loved the use of the fantastic private indoor pool. We were incredibly lucky with the weather which allowed us to enjoy the large garden to its full extent.

Wonderful swimming pool and location,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
We had a wonderful short break in Honeywood Lodge. The pool is amazing!!! The grounds were beautiful and we loved our walks. The games area was a great touch and the lodge would suit couples and families offering different entertainment for all. Such a small thing to mention but was disappointed with bedding was not ironed in the two upstairs bedrooms and looked untidy upon arrival. When you are paying for a top quality place to stay you expect everything to be clean and tidy. This would not stop me from staying again as we loved the pool so much.,date:2021-09-23,arrival:2021-09-15,departure:2021-09-19,duration:4,month:September,author_first_name:Guest,author_last_name:,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply: ,ratings_Cleanliness:4,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:5,ratings_Condition:4,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:5,ratings_Average:4.7 /5

A lovely stay at Honeywood Lodge - great family trip to Canterbury,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
A lovely family holiday home with great facilities and in a great location. Really private / secluded and had the whole of the grounds to ourselves. In terms of feedback - the blinds in the upstairs bedrooms were in a bad state and became a bit of an issue when trying to get the room dark enough for young children to sleep in, the gaps in the blinds meant that light poured in from 5am. We also struggled slightly with the pool temperature - it was manageable for adults but the kids were unable to stay in there for more than 15 minutes because it was too cold. We followed all instructions and kept the covers on over night and when not in use but it didn't seem to warm it up enough. Other than that, we had a lovely stay. ,date:2021-07-23,arrival:2021-07-10,departure:2021-07-15,duration:5,month:July,author_first_name:Holly,author_last_name:Dale,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply:,ratings_Cleanliness:5,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:4,ratings_Condition:4,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:4,ratings_Average:4.5 /5

Lovely Family Stay,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
We had such a lovely break as we stayed at the beautiful Honeywood Lodge in Canterbury! The place has a beautiful green space, but also a game room and can accommodate 6 people. The bedrooms were so nicely decorated and we enjoyed the space for the day. We really enjoyed having a private pool for the day and we made the most of it. Honeywood Lodge is such a beautiful location in a quiet spot of Canterbury. We loved being in the garden. The rooms in the loft were spacious and light. The bed was super comfy and the living room space is also big enough to relax with your family. Thanks to Bloom Stays for making sure we were happy with the house.

Great family holiday,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
We enjoyed a great family holiday at Honeywood Lodge. The accommodation was as to be expected from images provided & all was spotlessly clean on arrival. Location was excellent for visiting many of Kent’s attractions. It was also quiet & tranquil, whilst being close enough to access Canterbury’s conveniences within a few mins drive. Heated pool was a huge hit with the kids. Kept them busy for hours allowing adults lots of time for coffee, croissants & books! Nikki @ Bloomstays dealt with a couple of minor issues (wheelie bin full on arrival & low shower temp) pleasantly & efficiently. We would have no hesitation in booking with Bloomstays again in the future. ,date:2020-10-21,arrival:2020-10-02,departure:2020-10-09,duration:7,month:October,author_first_name:Daniel,author_last_name:Urinov,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply:,ratings_Cleanliness:5,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:5,ratings_Condition:5,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:5,ratings_Average:5 /5

A Fantastic Play to Stay!,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
Our family spent 7 nights at Honeywood Lodge and just wished we could stay longer! Everything from initial enquiry to arrival was first class and the communication was brilliant throughout! The property is simply amazing in a wonderful location and the pool was the firm family favourite! The kids spent hours each day splashing and having fun in the pool, which was safe, clean and much bigger than expected. We visited the City a couple of times as well as the local pub and with shops nearby, we had everything we needed. Just wished we had more than 7 nights! Hope to stay again and will certainly recommend to friends.,date:2020-09-04,arrival:2020-08-21,departure:2020-08-28,duration:7,month:August,author_first_name:Stephen,author_last_name:Maguire,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply: ,ratings_Cleanliness:5,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:5,ratings_Condition:5,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:5,ratings_Average:5 /5
