If you want almost total isolation then this is the place for you. If you want to get away from street lights then this is the place to stay. If you are a cyclist / walker then you are in the middle of it all. However if the beach or large conurbations are what you want to visit then you are quite a distance from either.

Lovely cosy cottage in a really peaceful location. The kitchen is really well equipped. The bed in the bedroom was comfy. The welcome hamper basket with afternoon tea was an extra nice touch. We will definitely back.

This was a lovely cottage in a rural location. If you want somewhere to relax its perfect. Bring your binoculars to enjoy the fabulous assortment of birds and wildlife. During our two week stay we were fortunate enough to see deer, foxes, birds of prey and the lovely alpacas in the field next door. The property itself has been very carefully considRead moreered to make the most of the available space, which although small. has everything you would need The welcome gifts were amazing and a lovely touch Hide

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.
