Cosy period cottage sleeping four guests, enjoying a central location in the seaside town of Whitstable, with shops, pubs, and the beach all within a few minutes’ walk.

Whitstable is a truly special seaside town on Kent’s east coast. Known for its fresh, local seafood, and home to annual oyster festival, the town is rightly popular with those who enjoy eating out and there are a number of local award-winning pubs and restaurants just moments from the cottage. Spend the day exploring the wide range of independent shops and boutiques or enjoy soaking up the sunshine on the gently sloping shingle beach which is a lovely place to enjoy seaside walks and a paddle in the sea, or perhaps even have a go at paddleboarding or kayaking at one of the seafront watersports centres. For those looking to venture further afield take a trip to nearby Canterbury for a spot of history and culture.

Upon arriving at this cottage, guests enter into the welcoming lounge, where they will find two inviting sofas, as well as a TV/DVD where you can relax in front of a film or your favourite television programme after a busy day at the beach and light the open fire on chilly evenings. From the lounge walk through the hallway into the dining room with a table which comfortably seats six, and before heading into the well-equipped kitchen.

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.
