Great location, and a Tardis inside. Easily could accommodate 3 couples and having 2 bathrooms is a real bonus. The garden is also beautiful, secluded and well planted, and a lovely place for a coffee in the sunshine.

This was a gorgeous property just a few minutes flat walk to high street and beach. Property was immaculate and larger than we expected. Comfortable beds, huge bath sheets, plenty hot water. Nicely decorated with lots of lovely art work. Back garden space was stunning a real beechgrove garden!

Great Location - only 5 minutes or less to the high street and the beach. Clean, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere with great art work on the walls. Lovely long garden with statuesque plants and an area to sit out. If I visit Whitstable again we would not hesitate to book this house again.

Beautiful cottage in a great location but it was very dirty. Hair in the bath, dirty worktops, and carpets not hoovered. When we wiped the trays/coffee table in the living room, the cloth was black. It made us feel very uneasy, particularly in the current climate. Its a shame as the cottage could be the perfect stay, it just needs a very deep cleanRead more. Hide

Loved the style of the cottage, lots of beautiful artwork. Comfy beds with quality bedding. Heating very efficient. Excellent dishwasher. Parking luck of the draw but we were ok 90% of the time. SO convenient for the harbour, shops & cafes. Would like to return to enjoy the garden.

Very good location. The house has everything required. The garden is lovely, and the scent of Jasmine by the decking is so fragrant. Our only issue was parking. They are narrow streets, and it can be very difficult to park. Its more suited to small cars. It is so handy to walk into the high street, and The Fountain is a two minute walk.

We had a really lovely stay. The garden was gorgeous. The house was very dusty. I would highly recommend decluttering and giving the place a deep clean and repaint. Also a different duvet on the main bed as duvet was way too large. Otherwise it was great. Brilliant location and good amenities.
