  • Located within a conservation area in the seaside town of Whitstable, short walking distance to the town’s harbour, beach, shops, and restaurants
  • Kerbside parking
Property code: WCC17

This stylish seaside home, which sleeps 6 guests in three upstairs bedrooms and usefully provides space to comfortably accommodate a 7th guest if required, has a fresh Scandinavian Summerhouse vibe.

Ideally suited to large or extended families, or a group of friends, this beautiful mid-terrace cottage puts its guests in the heart of the seaside town of Whitstable. Renowned for its seafood – especially its oysters – Whitstable is a foodie's paradise, with plenty of restaurants and gastropubs to choose from. Thanks to the property's central location, these are all within easy reach, as are the artists' galleries and workshops, and independent stores that give the town its unique cosmopolitan vibe.

 

Spread over three floors, the ground level accommodation consists of a snug, living room and dining room – all crisply designed – with a step up into a stylish galley kitchen. Doors from the dining room lead out onto a sunny decked terrace where guests will find garden furniture and a BBQ. This area leads on to a long narrow garden, and a second terrace area that provides a lovely tranquil retreat. Upstairs, the property's three bedrooms comprise of a super king-size room – which can be set up as a twin room – and a double room on the first floor, with a twin room under the sloping ceilings of the second floor (with some reduced head-height).

 

With its beach, thriving High Street, fishing harbour and castle, Whitstable has something for all ages, and this property puts its guests within half a mile of it all. For those who prefer a longer walk, the Saxon Shore Way runs through the town, heading west through Seasalter to the Kent marshes, and east to Herne Bay and the Roman fort at Reculver. Further east, the golden sands and contemporary art gallery at Margate are just 19 miles away, while journeying 7 miles south reaches the historic cathedral city of Canterbury and the chance to follow in the footsteps of Chaucer's pilgrims.

 

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

  • 3 bedrooms: 1 king-size (can be made up as a twin), 1 double and 1 twin, plus additional single day bed on the ground floor

Very good location. The house has everything required. The garden is lovely, and the scent of Jasmine by the decking is so fragrant. Our only issue was parking. They are narrow streets, and it can be very difficult to park. Its more suited to small cars. It is so handy to walk into the high street, and The Fountain is a two minute walk.

We had a really lovely stay. The garden was gorgeous. The house was very dusty. I would highly recommend decluttering and giving the place a deep clean and repaint. Also a different duvet on the main bed as duvet was way too large. Otherwise it was great. Brilliant location and good amenities.

Shanty is a lovely little cottage and my mum, sisters and I had a brilliant weekend there. There was ample space for us all with our bags etc and I even brought my baby along so they set a travel cot up for me which was a big help. It was only a five minute walk to the cute little town with lots of independent shops as well as a couple of chains ifRead more you like choice! Hide

The cottage was very well equipped, bright and lovely mature garden. It was very well positioned for shops and beach but still quiet. Parking was sometimes an issue but we managed to get in nearby car park if needed to.

The property is delightful, extremely well appointed and located close to the very centre of Whitstable, being only a very short walk from the sea and the harbour. There is also a beautiful secluded garden that is ideal for outdoor dining. Parking can be a problem as it is restricted to the surrounding residential roads.

The Shanty is a wonderful retreat for anyone. Tucked into a quiet road, it is just moments from the high street and beach. The patio (which gets all day sun) and the garden are pure joy. The layout of the place is perfect for a large group and the kitchen is very well equipped. The onsite contacts were there to answer any queries we had within minuRead moretes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hide

We had a brilliant holiday in Whitstable at New Year; we loved the town and our visits to Canterbury. The cathedral tour was well worth the 5. The holiday house was fine but with just a few tweaks eg new duvets and larger towels it would have been great.
