The Pilgrims Rest Guest House

The Pilgrims Rest Guest House sits in the heart of the Kent countryside a few miles southeast of the City of Canterbury and only a short drive to the coastal towns of Whitstable, Broadstairs, Sandwich and Deal.

The Ferry ports of Dover and Ramsgate and the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone are also easily accessible.

The Pilgrims Rest itself was part of the Manor of Littlebourne and the Steward to the Archbishop of Canterbury is reputed to have enjoyed accommodation here when he came to survey the land and property that formed the Manor.

The oldest part of the property is formed from two buildings one early 16th century and one early 18th century. The original wooden construction is clearly shown internally by the wealth of exposed wall and ceiling beams.

The Pilgrims Rest Guest House now provides the perfect accommodation for a break away in Canterbury.

We have four double bedded en suite rooms, a twin bedded en suite room and a family room which can accommodate two adults and two children.

The public areas provide a comfortable guest lounge which leads to the oldest part of the property which provides the perfect setting for a relaxing freshly prepared breakfast.

We can be found about four miles southeast of Canterbury on the A257 road to Sandwich, on the left hand side as you enter the village of Littlebourne.

We have a private car park to the rear of the main building which can accommodate all guests cars and is offered free as part of your Accommodation booking.

You will find The Pilgrims Rest Guest House is an ideal place to stay while visiting Canterbury and the Kent coast and remember the bus stops almost outside so you can leave your car in the car park and let the bus take you into the centre of Canterbury.

If you are on your way to holiday in Continental Europe we are also perfectly placed to break your journey. A nights bed and breakfast leaving you refreshed to continue the short journey to the Channel Ports or the Tunnel at Folkestone.
