Stylishly updated period cottage, providing chic accommodation for up to six guests, situated at the heart of the popular seaside town of Whitstable, just a short walk from the beach.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, and first-time visitors to the town will soon see why holidaymakers choose to return year-on-year. The town is renowned for its excellent range of independent shops and fantastic choice of restaurants, bistros, and pubs, many of which pride themselves on their creative use of the local produce, including the oysters for which the town is famed. The shingle beach is a pleasant space to spend a day, walking, picnicking, or simply relaxing and enjoying the fresh air and gentle sound of the waves, whilst sporty types may like to try out the range of watersports that the town has to offer.

The front door of this cottage opens onto the light-filled open-plan lounge/diner, an elegant space which has been beautifully finished to provide a sanctuary-like space. The dining area is at the front end of the room, with the lounge towards the rear, where guests will find two deep sofas, a cosy open fire, a Smart TV, Blu-ray player, DVD, iPod dock, and hi-fi. French windows open onto the garden, whilst a doorway leads through to the sleek, contemporary galley-style kitchen which is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. The bathroom is also situated on the ground floor and offers a shower-over-bath and WC. Open-tread stairs from the dining area lead up to the first floor where there are three bedrooms. The first of these is set at the front of the house, and is furnished with a king-size bed, a wardrobe, and a chest of drawers. The second bedroom not only has a king-size bed and an iPod dock, but also is used to access the third bedroom: a restful double room.

Outside, the cottage enjoys a stylish, carefully designed rear garden which is mainly set to shingle and has a pretty seaside theme, with garden furniture, festoon lighting, and a coal-fired BBQ. Roadside parking is available locally.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Great little cottage, felt really homely and had a good vibe about it. Beautifully finished and really appreciated the detail in each room.

Reviewed by Claire 30th November 2018

The cottage was absolutely perfect for our stay. We were a group of 6 girls and had plenty of space but was also very cosy! Beds were very comfortable and the cottage was clean. Perfect location as well. Brilliant weekend away!

Reviewed by Joan 22nd November 2018

The property is ideally situated for walking along the promenade or round the town. Very comfortable.

Reviewed by Cady 2nd November 2018

When we arrived at the cottage another couple turned up and said they had also booked to stay! It turned out the owner had double booked and promised it to some friends. Having booked and paid for our stay months previously this was an incredibly awkward situation to find ourselves in, and put a real downer on the start of our trip. The other couplRead moree kindly agreed to let us have the cottage and we had a brilliant stay after that, but it wasn't a great start! Hide

It's a lovely, homely cottage, that's very well furnished (very comfortable beds!) and in a great location.

Reviewed by Jenny 5th October 2018

We'd recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Whitstable. It was beautifully furnished, extremely cosy and in such a great location to explore the high street shops and beach. We all said we'd love to return in the future - excellent value for money!

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.
