This characterful property is ideally suited for couples or families to enjoy a seaside retreat. It offers comfortable accommodation with easy access to the high street, beach and harbour.

The delightful seaside town of Whitstable offers a wonderful shopping experience with both independent and traditional high street shops. A selection of fine dining establishments lines the colourful high street, along with various bohemian cafes and pubs. Especially popular are the many restaurants and stalls selling the area's resident star, the humble oyster. Celebrated every year at the hugely famous Oyster Festival held in July, you can sample them at many places in the town. Hire a bike and follow the Crab and Winkle Way, or take a ride along the coast of Herne Bay with its colourful beach huts. You will find a mountain of activities for both adults and children in Whitstable or just enjoy a day out at the beach where you can try your hand at lots of different watersports including windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing. The nearby city of Canterbury is well-known for its elegant Cathedral and is famous as the place from where the local sea salt was transported by sea to distant lands.

After entering the property, you will immediately be greeted by the small hallway where you can leave your shoes and coats. The cosy lounge has two comfortable sofas as well as an armchair to sit in whilst reading a favourite book by the woodburner. There is also a TV with DVD player. Heading into the open-plan kitchen/diner from the hallway, you will find a table and six chairs, perfect for entertaining the whole family. Here children can play as you cook in the well-equipped, bespoke kitchen, complete with both electric oven and gas hob. There is also a fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher and washing machine, and for a morning coffee, a breakfast bar with two stools. From here, a door leads out to the courtyard garden. There is also a bathroom with a bath and overhead shower and WC. Two steep, narrow wooden staircases connect the ground, first and second floors, adding to the property's charm. Head upstairs via the hall stairs and you will find two pretty double bedrooms. Climb another set of stairs to a large twin bedroom which is just perfect for children with a selection of children’s toys and TV.

Outside of the property, guests can enjoy relaxing in the fully enclosed garden and patio which has a table and six chairs. A charcoal BBQ is provided as well as children’s swing ball on the large lawn. There is unrestricted roadside parking nearby.

Bijou character cottage with a shabby chic vibe. Everything you could want was supplied , including plenty of wood for the stoves. Very close to the many and varied amenities that quirky Whitstable has to offer.

Reviewed by Tobias, 27th December 2017

A beautiful cottage in a nice and central location. Very well equipped and great as a base for exploring Kent and Whitstable. It's especially nice to come back to a warm log burning stove after a long walk along the coast.

Have just come back from a wonderful four nights over Christmas. Full of character and a great location. Walked the dog every day along the beach and the high street is full of restaurants, cafes and quirky shops. You don't need a car. We had everything we needed for a relaxing stay

A fantastic house with loads of character. The location in Whitstable is ideal. Walking access to beach and town. Parking could be an issue for some but with a Co op opposite with car park for unloading its fine. Besides leave the car and explore. Bus service is frequent and passes by. Very kind hosts- lovely strawberries and cream, thank you! VeryRead more helpful and accommodating. Hide

Fantastic location within easy walking to the shops and beech. Well equipped, clean and lovely welcome pack of strawberries, cream and shortcake biscuits on arrival! Excellent communication from owners throughout. Would highly recommend.

Reviewed by Sam, 31st July 2017

Great location for a stroll into the town centre, and the sea front. Pretty house with everything you need from a sunny BBQ in the garden to a cosy evening in front of a log fire. Be prepared for some traffic noise, no way a deal breaker.
