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.

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.
