Award winning Canterbury guest house for sale through Christie & Co

Harriet House, a sizeable detached guest house situated in the leafy outskirts of Canterbury, has been brought to the market by specialist property adviser, Christie & Co.


Set within greenery and only a 10 minute walk from the city centre, this well-established guest house is ideally located for exploring the ancient cathedral city of Canterbury on foot.
Offering seven well-furnished ensuite guest bedrooms, a breakfast room with interconnecting conservatory, large shed/laundry store, front garden and car parking, the business has been awarded a 4-star rating by Enjoy England, a Silver Award by Enjoy England and is a winner of TripAdvisor’s 2015 Certificate of Excellence.

In addition to the guest accommodation, the property offers luxurious owners’ accommodation. This comprises a large kitchen/breakfast room, double bedroom, bathroom and a through lounge/dining room with glazed patio doors which open out onto a private rear garden.

Andrew Moore of Christie & Co’s Maidstone office is handling the sale and comments, “This is a superb opportunity to acquire a well-established business in an excellent location which attracts many repeat visitors and guests from all over the world, including visitors to the two universities.

“Guest houses of this quality rarely come to the market in Canterbury and when they do they often sell very quickly. They tend to enjoy good all year round business due to Canterbury being a nationally renowned tourist destination, as well as having a large student community.

“Harriet House will no doubt generate significant interest from potential purchasers.”

An asking price of £875,000 is being sought for the freehold interest.
