Guestbook comments from the owner

We have really enjoyed our stay in Bellflower Mews. Everything we needed was here. Very comfortable and relaxing accommodation. Well equipped kitchen and lovely powerful shower. Great position for exploring this part of Kent. We recommend walking along Tankerton Slopes and by the Stour River. Refreshments at the Shakespeare Win Bar. Thank you.

An excellent month's stay

  • 5 of 5

I was in the process of moving to Canterbury and stayed at this flat for a month at the start of the year. The flat was everything I could have hoped for. It was clean, well maintained, easy to look after and a very helpful weekly service was carried out by the owners. The flat is just 10 minutes walk from the city centre, whilst maintaining its own quiet setting. I would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of a stay in Canterbury.

A gem behind the garden

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our choice of accommodation in Canterbury. First of all, I can't say enough about our hosts...they provided excellent communication while booking the apartment and right through until after we left. The apartment was delightfully located In a very quiet area behind a garden. A lovely oasis! It was very clean, very bright and certainly was spacious for 4 adults. It was a treat to have 2 bathrooms! Location was excellent as It was about a 15 minute walk to the city centre. Highly recommended.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

I can highly recommend this apartment, close to all amenities, an easy walk to the main centre of Canterbury and surrounds. The apartment was very clean and well equipped and I thank Adrian and Tina for being so accommodating to our needs. We felt very comfortable during our 3 week stay. Booking was a very easy process and hope to return one day. Many thanks

Great Apartment. great location.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is as it is advertised. it is very clean. it is very quite and restful. there was milk, tea and biscuit's left for us, which was well appreciated after a long drive down. there is a small Waitrose and Tesco's express about 4 mins walk away and a Asda Superstore about 10-15 mins drive away. In the apartment there is a folder full of leaflets with information on the local area, this has been well used by us, thank you for that. The owners were happy to answer any of my questions before we arrived. The only negative I found as mentioned by others is that the parking space in under a big yew tree which drops soft red berries (Autumn) all over the car which I had to clean off by hand, don't use windscreen wipers they just splatter and spread all over windscreen, but this isn't a big deal when think about this apartment and all its good points. If we ever return to Canterbury we would certainly like to stay here again if possible. the cathedral is a yearly ticket so could use again if returning. the castles around are well worth a visit if you are English heritage members. thank you Tina & Adrian.

Beautifully presented, quiet and ideal location

  • 4 of 5

We have been travelling for eight months and I have to admit that this little flat was the best presented we have stayed in during that time. Everything you needed was there, all the information you required was provided and easy to read - it was a delight. The location is superb just a short walk to the city centre and a local Waitrose for groceries. The free parking was ideal and if we wanted to use the car it was easy to get out to the countryside, Dover or elsewhere. It is a ground floor flat with a wheelchair accessible wet shower room so also great for people with mobility issues. We were a little concerned that it might be noisy on the New Dover Road but the flat is set well back and we didn't hear any traffic noise. When there was a problem with the toilet blocking this was fixed quickly. The only slight issue was that the wet shower room had no way to dry quickly so stayed wet for some time. From previous experience these usually have underfloor heating so that they dry quickly but as there was another in tub shower in the other bathroom this wasn't a major issue. All in all a great stay

We are pleased that you found the flat well presented and met all your needs for a quiet relaxing base for your stay in Canterbury. For our guests, many of which are from overseas, we feel it is important to provide lots of information to help you get the maximum out of your visit from arrival rather than having to go find it yourself.
