A well positioned property within very easy walking distance to Whitstable town centre. Generally well equipped and clean. The garden was well established, and a lovely sun trap. Parking a bit of a lottery, but at quieter times there are spaces to be had by the property. A good variety of shops and eateries in the town, and lots of lovely walks aloRead moreng the beaches and surrounding areas. Great bus service to Canterbury too. Hide

At one point during our week we were a full house, including four legged friend, and there was ample space for us to spread out or socialise together over a meal or board game. Good array of pots, pans, etc in the kitchen.

Lovely cottage ideally located for Whitstable harbour and shops. Great base for exploring nearby places. Dover Castle is well worth a visit. The cottage has everything you need especially in the kitchen. Plenty of space for a family. We are a family of four. We had a comfortable stay so peaceful and the garden is amazing.
