Stunning property, providing stylish accommodation for up to six guests, and enjoying a prime location in the fashionable seaside town of Whitstable.

This stylish, former fisherman’s cottage is perfect for a holiday by the sea. Whitstable is a delightful seaside town that offers plenty of activities for families. The town has a wealth of independent shops and a fine selection of restaurants, cafes and pubs, all within 100 metres of the cottage. Enjoy the beach and coastal walks as well as a variety of water sports including windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing. Take a trip to Whitstable Castle, a bike ride along the seafront, or follow the Crab and Winkle Way along the coast to Canterbury (7.5 miles), home of the country’s oldest cathedral and the perfect place to enjoy some history and culture.

The front door of this beautifully refurbished property opens into the comfortably furnished lounge, that features a three-seater sofa and an armchair arranged around a warming wood burner-effect gas fire, a TV, and a window seat. From the lounge, head through to the light and airy kitchen/diner that offers a large dining table with seating and a Smart TV with Now entertainment package. There’s a Bluetooth speaker for enjoying a spot of music over dinner, and the well-equipped kitchen has everything you will need for whipping up a delicious meal, including an electric double oven and gas hob, fridge/freezer, wine cooler, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, filter coffee machine, and microwave/grill. Beyond the kitchen is a cloakroom with WC, and completing the ground floor is the family bathroom which features a shower over the bath, WC and a Roberts Radio. Heading up to the first floor, there are two large bedrooms: a super-king-size with a Smart TV with Now entertainment package, and a king-size zip-and-link that can be made into a 2ft 6" twin on request. A further set of steep stairs takes you up into the eaves of the property where you will find a spacious twin bedroom with a low, sloping ceiling.
Outside, you'll discover a pretty garden that is a wonderful sun trap and offers comfortable seating which can be enjoyed throughout the day, and a Weber charcoal BBQ. A large tin bath with hot and cold taps is perfect for washing off sandy paws at the end of a busy day at the beach.

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.
