Property code: WCC20

Stylishly updated period cottage, providing chic accommodation for up to six guests, situated at the heart of the popular seaside town of Whitstable, just a short walk from the beach.

Whitstable is renowned for its excellent range of independent shops and fantastic choice of restaurants, bistros and pubs, many of which pride themselves on their creative use of the local produce, including the oysters for which the town is famed. This property is the ideal base for a family or group of friends looking to explore the town, enjoy its beaches and access the broader East Kent area.

From the narrow residential street, the front door of this terraced cottage opens onto a light-filled open-plan lounge/diner, which has been beautifully finished to provide a sanctuary-like space. French doors lead out to the beach-themed garden, with garden furniture and a coal-fired BBQ for al fresco dining. For those who prefer to do their cooking indoors, a doorway leads from the living area through to a contemporary galley-style kitchen. Open-tread stairs rise from the dining area to the first floor where guests will find three elegant and comfortable bedrooms, comprising of two king-sized bedrooms, one of which leads directly through to a third, double bedroom.

The property's central location puts its guests within easy reach of both the High Street and the seafront, so window-shopping and watersports can be enjoyed in equal measure, as can relaxed days on the beach watching the world go by. Further afield, there is plenty of culture to be found in the ancient cathedral city of Canterbury, just 7 miles south by bus or by car, where literary types can walk in the shadow of Chaucer's pilgrims. Alternatively, Margate lies 19 miles east by road or rail, where the Turner Contemporary gallery is sure to appeal to those of an artistic nature.

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

Two of the upstairs bedrooms lead in to one another so there is no privacy and it's a long way to the one toilet. Otherwise fine, clean and a great location.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Mooring Post, from 27th to 30th Oct for half-term. Two adults, twin 17 year old boys and 2 year old Labrador. The property was furnished to a very high standard and the fixtures, fittings and furnishings were excellent. We had a great time in Whitstable and had plenty of walks together, good food and a few beers! EveryRead moreone was friendly and welcoming - I would recommend the East Kent pub for great food. Park in Sydenham St, you have a better chance there! Hide

Beautiful cottage, right in the heart of the town, minutes walk from some amazing restaurants. Very comfortable and clean. Lovely to have the little garden at the back and fortunate to have the weather to enjoy fish and chips outside!

Great location, whilst parking is difficult, once you have a space there is no need to move as everything is on your doorstep. Comfortable, with enough space for 6 to have a great weekend.

The property is ideally located in central Whitstable, very near the harbour and beach. The cottage interior has lots of delightful homely aspects. A very inviting place to stay. Parking is an issue but worth the extra at car park meter.

This was one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in. Beautifully appointed, equipped with everything you could possibly need and more. It's right in the middle of town, so perfect location for bakery in the morning, restaurants and the beach...all 10mins in every direction. Our first holiday since lockdown, so it was important we enjoyed itRead more for many reasons, and we would book this one again in a heartbeat. Hide

The cottage was lovely and great location for getting to town and the beach. Finding a parking was a nightmare. 10.00am departure is too early.

A homely and beautifully decorated cottage in the heart of Whitstable. Comfy sofas to relax on and comfortable beds for sleeping. The galley kitchen was perfect for cooking the odd meal in and the open plan living and kitchen is great in a holiday setting. Go prepared that you may need to drive round for a parking space, but there is a Paid Car ParRead morek nearby if necessary. We were sad to end our week in Whitstable. Hide

The place was very clean and nicely decorated - with an extra touch for the Holidays. The central location was perfect and the wood burning fireplace was an great bonus.
