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.
New for 2017 we are building a light filled conservatory, which will become the breakfast room, opening out on to the garden. This will allow us to have a guests’ lounge/sitting area, set around a beautiful original fireplace in the main house.
