Thoughtfully updated period cottage sleeping six guests, a stylish and comfortable holiday retreat in the popular seaside town of Whitstable in East Kent.

This property is located right at the heart of the somewhat quirky seaside town of Whitstable, just off the main street and opposite a welcoming pub. The town is awash with places to eat and specialises particularly in the local seafood which is still brought into the town’s attractive harbour. The shops in the town are perfect for an afternoon spent browsing, as they are mainly independent boutiques which are sure to delight shoppers who are looking for something a little different than they would find in the usual high street stores. The pretty beach is great for enjoying seaside walks all year round, and it is possible to walk around the bay to the nearby of Tankerton and Seasalter, or even on to the neighbouring town of Herne Bay, some five miles away.


The front door of this cottage opens onto the light and airy lounge, with its carefully chosen furnishings, TV/DVD, and warming wood burner in the exposed stone fireplace. This room leads onto the separate dining room, which in turn, leads to the sleek and contemporary galley-style kitchen where guests will find an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, coffee machine, and washing machine. Stairs from the dining room lead to the first floor, where there are two bedrooms as well as a bathroom which boasts a bath, separate shower, and WC. The first of the bedrooms on this floor is a pretty king-size room, whilst the second is a restful double. The third bedroom, meanwhile, can be found on the second floor: a light-filled twin room which has a sloping ceiling and therefore some reduced head-height.


Outside, there is a private patio garden for guests to enjoy, as well as a handy side alley which can be used for storing bikes, or canoes, etc. Unusually for the town centre, there is private parking available for one car.

  • 3 bedrooms: 1 king-size (can be made up as a twin), 1 double and 1 twin
  • Bathroom with bath, shower, and WC
  • TV/DVD
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Wood burner
  • Oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, dishwasher, and washing machine
  • Bed linen, electric, and central heating available
  • Regret no pets
  • Private parking for 1 car
  • Shops, pubs, and beach within walking distance
  • Arrival 4pm

Second time we've been to the Pirates Cottage and no change from the last time, which is a good thing in all respects. It's a cosy cottage for the four of us in a great location, the parking space is a bonus. The cottage is clean and has everything you need, will definitely be back for a third visit.

Good cottage in a great location. With a more comfortable sofa and a bit of tlc it would be perfect.

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.
