Enjoyable stay in a very well appointed apartment. Quite a tardis behind the door. Well located. Easy access to a Tesco/Sainsburys. Not disturbed by passing traffic and the bonus is buses passing the door to Bournemouth etc. Free parking easy on Kings Park drive. Lots to visit and do close by.

Lovely well set up flat, modern kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Cosy lounge We are used to being on a main road with traffic noise so the double glazed window keeps it muted. Good for regular bus service.

This apartment is beautiful & we really enjoyed our stay. Sadly the weather wasn't kind to us but we found plenty to do. I thought it would be really noisy at night as the bedroom overlooked the main road but didn't hear a thing & didn't affect our stay. Thought the gift bag was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend a stay.

It's a very spacious flat with well-designed brand new fittings and furniture. The location is good for walking to the beach or driving to other parts of Bournemouth, Poole and beyond. There's a sunny patio at the back and free parking across the road in King's Park. It's on quite a noisy road but this didn't bother us too much.

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.
