We had a fantastic holiday in this lovely, well equipped cottage.Everything was to a high standard. The only thing I will say is the cottage is not really suitable for the elderly or infirm. The stairs were quite difficult to manoeuvre. Also the cottage was probably better for two adults and two children rather than six adults. Agin the stairs to tRead morehe top bedroom were very steep.

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.

A beautiful cottage in the perfect location. Close to local amenities and just a short walk from the beach. The property was a mixture of quaint and new. Sloping ceilings and narrow staircases, alongside a well stocked kitchen and large, practical bathrooms one with a beautiful roll top bath. Would definitely be a cottage we would like to return toRead more. Hide

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.

This pretty, well kept cottage is so centrally placed that you are never more than a minute or two from the centre. Its a lively, quirky place with plenty to keep everyone entertained. During these Covid 19 times, attention had been paid to cleanliness and the laundry provisions for bedding and towels were sensible.

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.
