A very well equipped and cleverly modernised quaint little cottage which was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The location is excellent for making the most of what Whitstable has to offer; shops, restaurants and other attractions are only a short walk away. Access to the 2nd story bedroom will be challenging for some. Overall, we very much enjoyedRead more our stay and hope to return. Hide

A lovely cottage and very well located, within easy walking to the main street and harbour. We knew about accessing the twin room through another bedroom but for an adult, lack of hanging space and mirror in that room was inconvenient. But otherwise it was charming, comfortable and well equipped. We had a lovely time.

Great kitchen, great location.Car park a little cramped with potential hazard dropping down to ground level. Steppings awkward to negotiate.Lounge and bathrooms lovely. One bedroom fine, but the double is cramped with little scope for storage. Access to top floor difficult for full sized adult. Equipment is fine, TV pixillating on BBC 1.

Had a relaxed Christmas break in this cosy cottage. Its in a great location in the centre of Whitstable but very quiet. Having a car parking space is a real plus too. Layout worked well for us - open plan enough, but able to be apart too.

One of the screws came out of the lock in the bathroom which was very frightening until I found it on the floor and replaced it. It should be made so that if necessary it can be opened from the other side.
