Stylish period cottage, thoughtfully updated by the owners to provide a wonderful holiday retreat just a short walk from the seafront in the popular town of Whitstable.

This property is located close to Whitstable town centre, within a few minutes’ walk of the town’s beach, harbour, and excellent collection of independent shops. The town is also well known for its culinary heritage, and there is a wide range of restaurants, pubs, and bistros in the town, many of which specialise in offering the very best of local produce. There are also many enjoyable day trips to be had in the area surrounding the town, including the towns of Margate and Canterbury, a fantastic choice of beaches, the wildlife parks at Howletts and Port Lympne, or perhaps even hop on the Eurotunnel and enjoy a day in France.

Opening the front door of this stylish property, guests will come straight to the attractive lounge with its bay window, solid wood floor, comfortable seating, flame-effect electric fire, and TV. This room leads seamlessly onto the spacious, light-filled dining area, which in turn, leads through to the contemporary kitchen with its oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. A washer/dryer is kept in a separate utility cupboard, and there is also a downstairs wet room with shower and WC. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, both of which are double rooms, one of which has its own TV/DVD, and the other which has an en-suite bathroom with a bath and WC. Guests should be aware that the stairs in this cottage are typical of properties from this era, and as such are quite steep and narrow. Therefore, this property is not suitable for children under five, or for those with mobility issues.

Outside, there is a pretty, pebbled garden to the rear of the property which is furnished not only with a table and chairs, but also with two outdoor sofas, which are great for relaxing on in the sunshine. There is roadside parking available locally.

We spent a beautiful Holiday in Whitstable and in the cosy , beautiful furnished Cottage The Roost. Everthing was fine. Wifi - would be fine, especially for our 16 years old daughter.

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.
