Stunning and stylish contemporary property which sleeps two guests and enjoys a fantastic seafront location in the East Kent village of Seasalter, just 2 miles from Whitstable.

Set in a fantastic seafront location, this stunning property provides stylish accommodation for a couple looking for a secluded coastal retreat. Enjoying uninterrupted sea views, this beautiful and spacious light-filled getaway has been beautifully decorated, with quirky details and comfortable furnishings. Opening directly onto the beach near the picturesque village of Seasalter, you can hear the waves lapping at high tide just a few metres from the door. This lovely beach house is perfect for exploring the delightful town of Whitstable (3 miles) and the historic city of Canterbury (7.5 miles).

On entering this attractive loft-style beach house you will find the open-plan living area which is filled with light thanks to the double-height ceiling, glass wall and skylights. Here you can relax in the large corner sofa while listening to music on the iPod, snuggling up in front of the wood burner and enjoying a movie. There’s a charming dining area, and a fully equipped conservatory kitchen. The double bed is in the corner of the living area and there’s a mezzanine floor with a sofa bed and desk.

There are miles of wonderful beach walks to enjoy from the doorstep, with the thriving town of Whitstable within easy reach. Famed for its seafood – especially oysters – brought in via the harbour, Whitstable offers a variety of great places to eat and drink as well as plenty of independent shops, boutiques, galleries and an 18th-century castle with beautiful gardens. You can also head to the pretty coastal town of Herne Bay (8 miles) or follow the Crab and Winkle Way which leads inland to Canterbury.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
