This characterful property is ideally suited for couples or families to enjoy a seaside retreat. It offers comfortable accommodation with easy access to the high street, beach and harbour.

Situated in the pretty coastal town of Whitstable, this bright and welcoming cottage is perfect for a family seeking a pleasant seaside retreat. The property has been thoughtfully updated, beautifully furnished, and decorated with a rustic-style interior. This lovely getaway is ideal for exploring the beach, harbour and high street, which are all within 1 mile. The old Salt Way passes close to the house, making this a great base for keen walkers.

Entering this charming property, you will find a light-filled lounge which is a perfect space to unwind in, with plenty of seating, a traditional wood burner and a TV/DVD so you can snuggle up and enjoy a movie. There’s also a bright and relaxing bespoke kitchen/diner – also with a wood burner – which is an ideal space for sharing your favourite meals. Steep and narrow cottage-style stairs lead up to the first floor, where there are two cosy double bedrooms. Further steep stairs lead up to the second floor which features a twin bedroom with a TV and a selection of children’s toys. Stepping outside there’s a fully enclosed garden with a large lawn, swing ball for children and a choice of garden furniture with a BBQ so you can enjoy lazy afternoons in the sun.

The historic town of Whitstable is known for its fantastic seafood, particularly the oysters which are brought in via the harbour. The town has a regular Oyster Festival and there’s a wide range of pubs, restaurants and shops for you to discover. There’s a lovely shingle beach and plenty of great walks and bike trails, with Herne Bay (6 miles) close by. Heading inland you can visit the cathedral city of Canterbury (6.5 miles), Howletts Wild Animal Park (13 miles) or the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (11 miles).

Saltway House is a charming, well equipped and conveniently located base to enjoy Whitstable, parking was relatively easy to find in the surrounding streets even on a weekend, the cottage is very clean and well stocked with appliances and utensils plus there were fresh flowers on the table and milk in the fridge which was very welcoming, the stairsRead more are a little steep but to be expected in that type of property and certainly not an issue. we all really enjoyed our stay!

The property could do with a bit of updating but was actually very comfy and warm. Beware of very steep stairs to the upstairs bedrooms. Only 1 bathroom downstairs. Nice little garden and fairly near the centre of Whitstable.

The house well located for Whitstable and its many amenities but it is on a very busy, noisy road.

Lovely property in a great location and in walking distance beach & main high street with lots of shops, bars & restaurants. However the house is situated on a busy main road so can be quite noisy. Property was all equipped and very clean & tidy. Enclosed garden with table & chairs so good for children & dogs too. . Only disappointment was the parkRead moreing situation as you need to find something on a side street or pay for overnight parking which can work out quite expensive. Hide

Location is amazing, short walk into Whitstable and to the beach. There was lots of room over 3 floors for our family of 4 (but only one bathroom and toilet which is on the ground floor and the stairs are steep!)
