Attractive Victorian terraced cottage sleeping six guests, situated in the pretty seaside town of Whitstable, within walking distance of the town’s shingle beach.

This property, suitable for couples and family getaways, is located within a short walk of all that the attractive town of Whitstable has to offer. The vibrant high street and famous Harbour Street, offer a wonderful range of independent shops where guests will find an unusual array of clothes, gifts, books, and homeware. There are also a number of specialist food shops, which are great for those who prefer to eat-in whilst on holiday, however, guests may find it hard to resist the town’s impressive choice of restaurants, gastropubs, and cafes including dog friendly pubs and restaurants. The pretty beach stretches around the bay from the town to the neighbouring village of Tankerton, where two rows of colourful beach huts line the gently-sloping shingle. Canterbury and other seaside towns are also only a short drive away.

The front door of this property opens directly into the open plan lounge/diner, with the lounge area situated at the front of the cottage. Guests will find it easy to make themselves at home here, with its comfortable seating, original tiled fireplace, DAB radio, and Smart TV with Netflix. To the rear of this room, past the stairs, is the dining area, a lovely light-filled space with a large dining table and a cosy wood burner. Beyond the dining area, guests will find the property’s galley-style kitchen which is equipped with everything they will need, including an oven, hob, Nespresso machine, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. As is usual in this style of property, the bathroom can also be found on the ground floor, offering a shower-over-bath and WC. Steep, cottage-style wooden stairs lead to the first floor, where guests will find two of the cottage’s three bedrooms. Both of these are pleasant double rooms with some attractive original features. A further set of steep, narrow stairs leads up to the attic space on the second floor which has been converted to a light and airy twin room, which benefits from a Smart TV with Netflix. Please be aware that this room has a sloping ceiling and some reduced head-height. Please note this room does not have its own door, steps open directly into the loft room.

To the rear of the property, there is an enclosed garden which has a decked seating area with patio furniture, providing guests with the ideal space to enjoy alfresco drinks or meals. At the end of the garden there is a secure gate, which allows guests to bring bikes round. The cottage is in the conservation area where parking is free but space is limited. At busy times parking can be found a short walk away near the station.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The Cottage is located close to all the amenities that Whitstable has to offer. The beach at Tankerton is a short walk away too. The accommodation is comfortable although the steep stairs need to be managed carefully and would not be suitable for children or the aged. There is a lot of competition for the parking spaces in the road, but once parkedRead more we did not use the car for the week we were there. A very enjoyable week! Hide

The cottage is comfortable and easy to manage though the steep stairs would not suit anyone with limited mobility. There is a nice sitting area in the garden.

Lovely cottage, by far its best asset is its proximity to the high st and harbour, literally a 3 min walk! The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The complimentary bottle of Prosecco was a nice touch! The fishermens cottage arent suitable for children in my opinion, nor the elderly or infirm as the stairs are tooRead more steep and narrow. But our group of middle aged ladies had a lovely time and the accommodation suited us perfectly Hide

Good location for high street, harbour and beach as well as local shops, restaurants. Stairs are very challenging not suitable for children or older people with dodgy knees or backs. Well equipped, could have a few more cosy elements such as rug or cushions on chairs. Nice little outside area to sit when sun shines. All in all a good stay, not luxuRead morery but adequate and good location. Would recommend with the above pointed out. Hide

A lovely cosy cottage close to shops , restaurant and the sea. The garden is a great sun-trap. Our 2 dogs were happy there. Heating worked well. Very steep stairs. Difficult to park.

I grew to love this property more each day. Fantastic for our dogs too . It was comfortable and relaxing but I did not feel worried about furniture or decoration. The owners have thought of everything ! The heating was fantastic as was shower and double beds and everything was clean and tidy

Ideal location but stairs were really really steep and narrow. We were a party of 6 and it was too cramped but 4 would be fine

Reviewed by Diane 23rd November 2018

The cottage is in an excellent location. Well equipped and very comfortable. Heating and hot water was plentiful. Only downside is parking outside is difficult. The attic room staircase is very narrow and there is no handrail. Once there the two beds were very comfortable.

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.
