We had a very enjoyable week in the Rockfish apartment. As keen walkers it was great to find the coastal footpath just outside the front door. Beds were very comfortable.

Generally clean and fresh, crisp white bed linen, mattresses a bit bouncy but comfortable. Super views front and back (sea and fields). Dog friendly beach, no restrictions, great walks. Excellent garden at back with sunroom. WiFi and smart TV both worked well. Shower cubicle a bit small and no washing machine. 3 mile drive to Whitstable and 5 minutRead moree walk to the Michelin starred Gastro pub, the Sportsman (book at least 6 months ahead!). Hide

Rockfish Suite was a really nice apartment in a lovely quiet spot with sea and country views. We loved the outdoor space, a pretty private garden with a very comfy summer house where we sat, read books and drank tea.

The Forget Me Not Cafe just a few metres away from the apartment did a lovely breakfast. Hide

Fantastic location and setting the apartment size wise is marvellous and the view is excellent. I love this building but glad we paid extra for the upstairs its much bigger and has the views . I like its away from the holiday parks down the road. If they sort out the few niggles it would be five stars

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
