This property enjoys a prime location at the heart of the seaside town of Whitstable. The town is well-known for its laid-back, fashionable character, and offers an excellent choice of restaurants, gastropubs, and delis, as well as a range of interesting independent boutiques. The sea front is just a short stroll away, including the bustling harbour and the pretty beach at Tankerton just around the corner. The area surrounding the town has much to offer to visitors too, including the cathedral city of Canterbury, the wildlife parks at Port Lympne and Howletts, and Margate with its Turner Contemporary Gallery and Dreamland theme park.

Guests approach this property via a courtyard which is shared with the ground-floor cheese shop and its friendly owner. Stairs from the front door lead to the accommodation which occupies the first and second floors of the building.

We had to report all sorts of issues to be addressed to the owner soon after arrival on the Saturday inc dirty shower curtain; just one saucepan in the cupboard; a washing machine full of washing etc. The issues were largely addressed on the Monday but really not up to any standard weve experienced before.

Very nice flat. Clean and with everything you need.

Location

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.
