My family & I had a great time in Whitstable. The cottage was lovely, lots of old worldly charm retaining the character of the property, whilst accommodating the needs of a family with teenagers. The garden was great as our dog could roam around safely. The location was fabulous, with a 10 minute walk to the beach & less than 5 minutes into the HigRead moreh Street. Unfortunately we did not have use of the washing machine during our stay, however the owners kindly recompensed us for the inconvenience. Hide

Lovely shabby chic vibe, loved the fairy lights, atmosphere and decor of Samphire Cottage. Good garden space when weather nice enough to sit outside. Rather too much crockery and large pans, a few small saucepans would not go amiss. Would have preferred emptier kitchen cupboards. Helpful local information provided by owners, map and hamper a thoughRead moretful gesture. Good location although parking a bit tricky as local people need their own spaces. But perhaps an issue for local council to sort? Hide

Lovely comfy, cosy holiday cottage in a really great location, close enough to the action but also nice and quiet.

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.
