Well equipped, very well situated and dog friendly. Whitstable is a great place with some excellent eateries that were dog friendly too. Not our usual type of family holiday but thoroughly enjoyed and fully relaxed after two weeks here!

We very much enjoyed our stay. Whitstable is a fabulous place to visit and the house was comfortable, well equipped and well located with the town, beach and train station all within a short walk. The Coop over the road was very handy.

Lovely well equipped cosy cottage close to town. We went at Christmas and lovely to have Christmas tree and gifts left by the owner. Steep stairs, so may not be suitable for anyone with disabilities.

Reviewed by Sue 21st September 2018

Generally a very nice property- be aware the stairs are very steep and there was a fair bit of noise from the road. Well located: short walk into town and to the beach. Handy convenience store opposite.

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.
