About Us



Yorke Lodge, a Victorian Villa, was built in 1887 by its first occupier, a Pharmacist and his wife.  His 3 daughters lived in the 3 neighbouring houses built at the same time. All 4 houses were ‘experimental builds’ and are all ever so slightly different.

Yorke Lodge was established as a Guest House in the mid 1970’s, when I was living just across the road in another B&B (now sadly turned into flats).

As a family we moved here in 2002 and have constantly undertaken a schedule of renovations and refurbishment.

I am born and raised in Canterbury and went to School in Broadstairs.  Most of my family for the last 50 years have owned a B&B or Hotel in Canterbury.   I have lived in a Hotel since I was 5 years old… I hope this will make me your ideal host for your stay in Canterbury.
