The lounge area is warm and inviting with two comfy sofas and an armchair arranged around the wood burner where you can curl up on chilly evenings and catch up on your favourite programmes on the smart TV. A desk and chair also offer the perfect spot to catch up on emails. A dining table and chairs provide a lovely space for enjoying delicious meals that have been whipped up in the well-appointed kitchen with electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, washer/drier, dishwasher and a breakfast bar with two stools for enjoying a morning coffee.

We were impressed with the quality and range of the equipment in the kitchen - and it was really useful to find condiments etc in the cupboard as well as tea & coffee, along with the milk, bread and eggs Jules supplied.

Central location meaning everywhere in Cranbrook was walkable. However, at the side of a busy road and therefore traffic noise. Didn't bother us too much, but may others. If the local council replaced the worn out rubber speed bumps outside the property with new, concrete speed pillows, it would hopefully prevent traffic passing the front window atRead more speeds well in excess of 30 mph!! Big question, would we return? Yes. Happily. Hide

We stayed in the apartment for a week and we had a great time! The apartment is spacious and very comfortable with its two sofas and modern kitchen. We really appreciated the combination of old and new - the living room oozes atmosphere and everything you could possibly need is there, plus a welcoming card and some chocolate.

We really enjoyed our three-night stay in this apartment, which was well placed for the village and the many tourist attractions nearby. The kitchen is very well-equipped, the bathroom modern with a lovely powerful shower and the bed and bedding providing a good night's sleep. In the cool January evenings we lit the log fire and relaxed on the big Read moresofas. Hide

Well equipped property, lovely welcome pack and an excellent host. Cranbrook is a lovely village, we had dinner in the local hotel several times and it was always good. Larkins Ale House is a must visit if you like Ale, excellent fresh beer.

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.
