A lovely cottage and enjoyed the stay but the TV connectivity was erratic which was frustrating. Difficulty with the bins which we put out but weren't emptied by the Council. This was a bit of a pain.Great location though and a nice break.

Lovely house in a great location. Very comfortable beds with good quality bedding. Bathrooms on every floor. Well equipped kitchen, everything carefully considered for a great stay. A variety of places to eat, recommend Samphire, Ossie's fish and chips and East Kent for pizza. Love Tankerton shingle beach and sandy Joss Bay.

A lovely, stylishly decorated property in a great location. Very well-equipped with everything you could need and spotlessly clean. In an ideal location, a short walk (of moments!) from the shops and restaurants of Harbour Street. We enjoyed our week here and would recommend the cottage to others.

Lovely, well equipped cottage in a great location minutes from the shops and harbour. As others have said, parking incredibly expensive but we knew that before we went. Not really a 'cosy winter cottage', sofa uncomfortable and hard stone floors with no rugs, but great for the slightly warmer months.
