Situated in the heart of Whitstable, famous for its oysters which are celebrated every August at the Oyster Festival, this picturesque seaside town is renowned for its culinary heritage, with several local pubs and restaurants just moments from the cottage. Keen cyclists can enjoy a bike ride along the Crab and Winkle Way or ride along the coast to Herne Bay. For walkers, there are many footpaths to explore along the Kent coastline. For those looking to venture slightly further afield, head to nearby Canterbury (7 miles), which is home to the country’s oldest cathedral. Enjoy a spot of retail therapy or visit the ancient ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church which form Canterbury's UNESCO World Heritage Site.

As you enter this cosy cottage, you’ll step inside to the light and welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with large sliding doors that open out into the courtyard garden. Relax after a busy day sightseeing on the comfy sofa and enjoy catching up on your favourite TV programmes on the Smart TV. If you fancy a cosy night in, whip up a delicious romantic meal in the well-equipped kitchen which includes an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine, washing machine and microwave before sitting down to dine at the table with seating for two. Heading upstairs to the bedroom, you will find a comfortable king-size bed with an Emma mattress and an en-suite shower room with a walk-in shower and WC.

Outside, there is a secluded courtyard garden which catches the sun for most of the day and acts as a real suntrap. A patio table and chairs, deckchairs as well as a charcoal BBQ are available for guests to enjoy a spot of outside dining.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Harbour Lodge in Whitstable. The lodge was ideal for what we needed and we felt at home as soon as we walked in. The location if fantastic and right in the heart of Whitstable. I would highly recommend this holiday home to all friends and family who were thinking of visiting Whitstable. Thank you very much to RichaRead morerd and Sharon for the thoughtful bottle of fizz, it was exactly what we wanted to celebrate the start of our stay in Whitstable. Hide

What a fab stay we had at Harbour cottage, everything was supplied for those that like to self cater, we are lazy on holiday and eat out, coffee and croissants on a terrace at The Harbour Shed was heaven. Would love to stay again and would recommend to anyone thinking of a trip to Whitstable

Very comfortable and modern holiday cottage which is well equipped. Whilst this is a one bedroom cottage it feels spacious including the lovely bedroom upstairs. The private courtyard garden area is bit of a suntrap and is ideal for the use of the BBQ. The property is situated in the town so it is very close to the shops pubs and restaurants.

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.
