The detail

The Old Fire Station in Canterbury dates back to Victorian times when the city’s fire engines were still horse-drawn and they would be stationed in the barn behind the impressive red doors. The building is now home to three luxurious properties which can be rented individually or together and can sleep up to 18 guests in total. Each of the properties has its own character, from the original Victorian building at the front to the modern Scandinavian-style architecture around the courtyard.

The Arthouse is accessed through the door to the right of the huge old fire station doors and the interior has been furnished in a quirky but tasteful way. Step into the dramatic entrance hall with its high ceilings and colourful chandeliers and make your way up to the bright and spacious dining and living area. Even when just on the first floor, you’re at the roofline of the surrounding houses and there are wonderful views out over the city. There are two spacious double bedrooms and one of the sofas in the living room converts into a comfy sofa bed.

Cedar House is a Scandinavian design wood-clad building hidden away from the main road behind the Arthouse. The spacious dining area features an extendable table that can seat up to 16, perfect for a big get together over dinner if you’ve booked all three properties out. There are two double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, one of which overlooks the courtyard on the ground floor. The second bedroom, which is on the first floor, also has a sofa bed and a balcony overlooking the courtyard.

The final two double bedrooms can be found in the cosy Fireman’s Cottage. The reception and dining room is warm and welcoming with strip wood floors and a large sofa. There’s also a fully fitted kitchen, a bathroom and a private garden with outdoor furniture.

The Old Fire Station is in the perfect location for exploring Canterbury, close to the city centre but also near Canterbury West train station in case you want to explore the nearby coast and countryside. The beautiful Botany Bay Beach with its famous chalk cliffs is nearby, as is the seaside town of Broadstairs. The cool and quirky Margate is also just half an hour away in the car. Visit Dover and Leeds Castles and learn a bit about the area’s history or get your nature fix at the Wildwood Wildlife Park or at Howletts Zoo.
