The historic, characterful Sea View House is in the most beautiful position, right on the beach path and close to the sea. The back of the house opens right up to bring the sea breeze and sunshine right inside. Great fun exchanging greetings and local information with the many folk walking past. But at night, there is darkness and peace and the beaRead morech and the sky are all your own. If there is a fine sunset to view, you have a front row seat! Hide

We loved the cottage & its location. Great for the sea, crabbing & oysters virtually next door. The house is extremely well equipped once we worked out the cupboards and drawers. The kids loved working the old fashioned balance scales. We were able to drop our stuff & park close by. Dont worry that the street is very narrow theres somewhere to turnRead more at the end! For budgeting Gorel Tank car park was 50 for 3 nights. Hide

The house was full of character and the location was superb - perfect way to end the day watching a glorious sunset from the window.

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.
