Box Cottage, is situated in the much sought after picturesque village of Westbere, which lies around 4 miles north-east of the historic city of Canterbury.

The village is set in a conservation area that overlooks the beautiful Westbere Lakes and is a haven for wildlife and country walkers alike. There is a village hall, All Saints Parish Church and the well-known Yew Tree public house/restaurant, which was built in 1348. It is one of the oldest pubs in Kent. Queen Anne and the Archbishop of Canterbury are reputed to have stayed here, and Dick Turpin evaded capture from the law hiding out there.

Everyday facilities can be found at the neighbouring village of Sturry, with a range of local shops, Junior Kings school and a mainline railway station connecting to Canterbury, Charing Cross and the coast.

The historic city of Canterbury offers a wider range of facilities, many cultural interests, excellent shopping centre, a wide selection of schools both in the private and state sectors, along with colleges and universities.
Recreational facilities include a number of golf courses, sport centres, swimming pools, championship cricket and rugby. Fishing and water sports can be found along the coasts.

Transport links are also good, with the high-speed train operating into London St. Pancras from Canterbury West in less than an hour.
The A2 gives access to the M2, M20 and M25 motorway networks. The port of Dover and Channel Tunnel terminal at Cheriton provide cross channel services to the continent.
