Patrixbourne, Nr Canterbury
Keepers Cottage dates back to 1866 when it formed part of the Cunningham Estate and was built for the keeper of the estate. Check out the weather vane on the roof. Surrounded by acres of wooded garden the cottage has lovely views and is located off a quiet road that leads to the village of Patrixbourne.
The cottage has been tastefully renovated and is light, bright and airy inside with a gorgeous garden room that really makes the most of the surrounding garden and views. A second cosy sitting room and dining room are linked by a large wood burner for chillier days and the modern kitchen has everything you need for a self catering holiday. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a large shower room. Outside is a large patio which overlooks the ornamental pond, along with a hot tub overlooking the gardens.

Fabulous Keepers Cottage 5/5
Keepers Cottage is a delightful place to stay. Although this is a three bedroom property it feels so spacious. The Orangery is amazing, comfy furniture that allows you to relax and view the large contained garden and the views over the countryside. The kitchen is modern and well equipped. The location of the property was great, a feeling of being in the countryside but not having to drive far to be in Canterbury. So happy to have stayed at Keepers, felt special.

Lovely views 4.2/5
This cottage is surrounded by lovely views and countryside . The gardens are spacious and fab for dogs . The house has all you need for a lovely stay and the orangery Room is a delight to sit in and watch the sun go down . The only thing I would strongly recommend is replacing the old uncomfortable couches and chairs in the property. Otherwise a delightful place to stay in Kent .

Countryside escape 4.2/5
Plus points - Beautiful location, idyllic views and wonderful privacy. House itself super cosy and peaceful. Lovely modern kitchen. Few minus points - The bathroom shower could do with some freshening up + a lot of the furniture was covered with throws as it was stained/ had holes.The wifi as listed pretty slow/ do not expect to be able to stream Netflix etc. Overall great stay, just think for the price (esp in summer months) the property could do with a little updating (and better wifi) especially in comparison to other properties in that price point.

Lovely setting perhaps better in summer. 4.2/5
The setting of the cottage is delightful in a woodland clearing with footpaths right on the door step. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of hot water (although the hair trap hadnt been cleaned out). The kitchen was lovely, modern and well appointed. It would have felt more welcoming with some heating in when we arrived and maybe a welcome pack as we were gasping for a cup of tea. The oak beamed conservatory is a gorgeous space that is sadly lacking any heating other than a small fan heater. Not so much of a problem in summer. On a safety note we were surprised there was no handrail up the stairs which was a bit precarious for my 87 year old father in law. The overall decor and presentation of the cottage was lovely and we enjoyed our stay.

Lovely stay at a lovely cottage!
We have enjoyed staying at Keepers Cottage immensly and do not really want to leave. Its a beautiful spot to explore Eat Kent with its lovely seaside, small towns, beaches and cliffs. The weather was wonderful too - we could have hardly asked for more!

Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your lovely cottage. We have had a lovely time. It's a shame the weather wasn't that good but it didn't stop us exploring and visiting sites: Canterbury Cathedral, Leeds Castle, Dover Castle to name a few.
We would highly recommend staying at Keepers Cottage, it was a lovely base to stay in, allowing us to relax and feel like we had comforts of home. Thank you!

A few much needed days away with the kids & dogs! Delightful cottage....cosy and warm and fab facilities! We really relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful walks (although mudding!) and relaxed in the cottage playing games and genuinely unwinding.
The log burner was a big plus and we didn't want to leave! Would toughly recommend to friends and family and beyond! A wonderful few days away in the Kent Countryside! Thank you

Great Stay at Keepers Cottage. Loved the outside space, great for the dog! Very comfortable, quiet and peaceful.
Fantastic walks on the doorsteps, no need to travel in the car. The patio & seating area is a plus in a very sunny spot. The kitchen is very well equipped and is another good space.

Fabulous stay thank you, here at Keepers Cottage.
Lovely views and great walking trails locally. Enjoyed visiting Canterbury, Whitstable & Herne Bay. The house has everything you need and the dogs absolutely loved the incredible gardens to run around in.
The views from the Orangery Room are incredible and we spent most evenings admiring them....who needs a tv with views like this! Great week in Kent, thank you.

Warm, cosy & Spacious!

Absolutely blown away as soon as the gates opened. The grounds are beautiful with so much space for the kids and dog to run around in. The house has been well maintained and really felt warm and cosy during the winter days. Thank you for allowing us to create great memories with our family and friends.
