If you are looking for a base for walking, cycling, or touring this beautiful part of East Kent, then Willow Tree Lodge is perfect. In the heart of the beautiful Kentish countryside, the picturesque village of Littlebourne is only 4 miles from the historic Cathedral City of Canterbury. This studio style lodge in the owner’s garden, overlooks open countryside and has everything you could want for a cosy, comfortable and relaxing holiday or short break. And, to add to the appeal, the lodge sits on the banks of Little Stour with fabulous views of the crystal clear water, reeds and wildlife including ducks, moorhens, water voles, kingfishers and egrets. The owners keep chickens and so guests will be welcomed with fresh eggs, and fresh bread from the local farm shop.

What an absolute find. The peace here is amazing. Ducks on the water right outside the window. Birds singing and trees rustling in the breeze. Inside the cozy cabin you have everything you need. I stayed for nearly two weeks and didn't want to come home. As for the lovely owners Diane & Ian and their doggies, I was made so welcome. Freshly laid eggs that made my omelette a beautiful yellow I had not seen before. Walking distance to 3 local pubs, The Duke William being my favourite. Indian restaurant 3 miles away or the local take away Cinnamon, which I strongly recommend. Canterbury central 4 miles away. Hern Bay or any of the seaside resorts all a 20 minute drive. The walks, of which I had many, in Littlebourne's beautiful countryside along the Little Stour made the sunny afternoon's a pleasure. There is nothing to be disappointed about. Everything to smile about. Go! Book it now and enjoy. Thank You Diane & Ian so much. I can't recommend Willow Tree Lodge enough. Keep Smiling. Rik :)

We have stayed at this gorgeous cabin twice now, we love the wildlife which is so close by, the river is so tranquil! We recommend the Lovely pub in littlebourne ‘The Even Hill’ only 15 minutes walk, great food and cosy atmosphere. Diane and Ian were always so friendly and helpful. The cabin is equipped with everything you could possibly need, very comfortable and peaceful, super clean! Thanks for another great stay!

I stayed here for a long weekend with my husband. Diane and Ian were wonderful hosts and on hand if we needed anything. It was the perfect location to explore canterbury, whitstable and the kent countryside. The lodge is so cosy and comfortable, with everything we needed. It was spotless inside and the bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. When the description says it's close to the river, you can actually open the window and watch the ducks swim by. It was so relaxing. We would definitely recommend and we can't wait to come back. Friends of ours are staying here soon too on our recommendation. Thank you diane and ian.
