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.
