Stunning property, providing stylish accommodation for up to six guests, and enjoying a prime location in the fashionable seaside town of Whitstable.

This stylish, former fisherman’s cottage is perfect for a holiday by the sea. Whitstable is a delightful seaside town that offers plenty of activities for families. The town has a wealth of independent shops and a fine selection of restaurants, cafes and pubs, all within 100 metres of the cottage. Enjoy the beach and coastal walks as well as a variety of water sports including windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing. Take a trip to Whitstable Castle, a bike ride along the seafront, or follow the Crab and Winkle Way along the coast to Canterbury (7.5 miles), home of the country’s oldest cathedral and the perfect place to enjoy some history and culture.

The front door of this beautifully refurbished property opens into the comfortably furnished lounge, that features a three-seater sofa and two armchairs arranged around a warming wood burner-effect gas fire, a Smart TV, and a window seat. From the lounge, head through to the light and airy kitchen/diner that offers a large dining table with seating and a Smart TV with Now entertainment package. There’s a Bluetooth speaker for enjoying a spot of music over dinner, and the well-equipped kitchen has everything you will need for whipping up a delicious meal, including an electric double oven and gas hob, fridge/freezer, wine cooler, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, filter coffee machine, and microwave/grill. Beyond the kitchen is a cloakroom with WC, and completing the ground floor is the family bathroom which features a shower over the bath, WC and a Roberts Radio.

A further set of steep stairs takes you up into the eaves of the property where you will find a spacious twin bedroom with a low, sloping ceiling.
Outside, you'll discover a pretty garden that is a wonderful sun trap and offers comfortable seating which can be enjoyed throughout the day, and a Weber charcoal BBQ. A large tin bath with hot and cold taps is perfect for washing off sandy paws at the end of a busy day at the beach.
