“We came here four years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed running the B&B but are now looking to move in another direction. It is a lovely building with so much history and originally had a thatched roof that was later replaced with Kent peg tiles, while at the rear of the building in what was previously the kitchen a large slab was discovered with a well underneath it.
Apart from the lovely building we also felt the position was ideal as we are so near to the Canterbury Westgate with pubs, restaurants and high street shops, plus guests could stroll along to the station for the high speed train to St Pancras or be in the university campus grounds within a couple of minutes walk. As well as all the sightseeing opportunities and retail therapy available in the city there is so much else to do such as going to the theatre at the Gulbenkian or the Marlowe or sampling some of the wonderful restaurants in the city – all within walking distance of the ‘City of Canterbury’.
Currently the business attracts both national and international clients and has excellent reviews on various websites including TripAdvisor. Turnover for the year ending November 17 was £116,143 net of VAT with a net profit of £63,353 with additional information being available as required. There is scope to enhance the business even further with more use being made of the restaurant”.
