Student Homes in Harbledown, Canterbury

Just west of Canterbury is the picturesque village of Harbledown, encased in fruit orchards and home to a warm community of students and families. The name of this charming area is thought to come from “hobble down” after Henry II of England walked barefoot through the village on a pilgrimage to Canterbury Cathedral! The storied history of the area is visible in its many churches and listed buildings, including an intact Georgian terrace on the South Side.

Student homes in Harbledown benefit from being in close proximity to Canterbury’s iconic town centre. Just hop on a number 22 bus at Wife of Bath Hill North and ride through the scenic Knight Ave and Rheims Way and you’ll be in the centre in under 20 minutes.

As for the University of Kent’s Canterbury Campus, you’ll be pleased to know a Uni Link bus can take you from Cherry Garden Road to your lectures in 25 minutes.
