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 fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Crinkle Cottage was a perfect location for days and evenings out in Whitstable. Cosy, clean and easy to relax in. I'm sure children would love the top bedroom with its little winding staircase.

A comfortable, spotlessly clean, well presented and equipped cottage. The location is perfect for central Whitstable and the harbour. On street parking is very limited.

Crinkle Cottage is in a fantastic position for the Harbour, beach and High St. plenty to do and so many great restaurants. Easy access to shops and supermarkets.. Only drawback is parking but to be expected in a small seaside town. You will find a space eventually.

Crinkle Cottage is in a very good location in Whitstable. Easy access to shops, harbour, beach and places to eat. Whitstable itself is a great place to stay for a holiday; feels like a busy, working town but not too crowded with tourists. Great eating all around town and the micro breweries are excellent.

We had a super stay in this cottage, just a few minutes from the bustling High Street and beach, couldn't be a better position. It had outside space for sitting and having a drink and children could play. Everything was fine and we enjoyed very much our stay in Whitstable which is a great place for swimming and eating and visiting Broadstairs and FRead moreaversham. Hide

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.
