The Property

This lovely, detached Herne Bay cottage, painted white in keeping with its Art Deco origins, offers perfect seaside holiday accommodation, only a short stroll from a quiet, shingle beach. Comfortably appointed throughout, this Herne Bay cottage allows everyone space and privacy, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, so no queuing while someone enjoys a long soak in the bath, making it ideal for generations of families to holiday together or for friends who wish to explore this pretty part of Kent. The ground floor bedroom in this Herne Bay cottage is perfect for the less mobile, with comfy seating and access to the patios at both front and back. It is next door to a shower room and has its own hallway. The sitting room of this Herne Bay cottage has a 50'' TV and is just the place for everyone to gather, so on warm summer evenings open the French doors and let the sea breeze drift in, or on chilly winter nights snuggle down into the sumptuous seating and enjoy a film. The large hallway doubles as a second sitting room; it even houses the American-style fridge/freezer, so take a cool drink from the fridge, put your feet up and relax! Only a couple of minutes’ from this Herne Bay cottage is the sea, bracing in winter and refreshing in summer, with an award-winning shingle beach - you will never tire of the ever-changing scene before you. Head to historic Canterbury, along the coast to Whitstable, up to London for the day or into Kent to explore the beautiful gardens and National Trust houses. But return each evening to the welcome of this lovely Herne Bay cottage and make plans for the days ahead.

About the location

HERNE BAY

Whitstable 5 miles; Canterbury 7 miles; Broadstairs 13 miles; Dover 23 miles.

Herne Bay has been a popular holiday destination for many years. With its award-winning shingle beach and restored Victorian memorial gardens, this offers families the perfect, relaxing holiday location. Herne Bay's seafront is home to the world's first freestanding purpose-built Clock Tower, built in 1837 which looks down onto the well-kept promenade. As expected when visiting an English seaside town, there are many eateries serving everything from traditional fish and chips to exotic delicacies, and of course, no seaside town is complete without an ice cream parlour and Herne Bay has two! The historic city of Canterbury is only 7 miles away, with its famous cathedral and historic past, offering theatres, museums and art galleries as well as shops, restaurants, and trips along the river. For a day of cobbled streets and browsing around quaint little shops, then make for Whitstable, famous for its Oyster festival and a popular harbour town at any time of year. Herne Bay is ideally situated for exploring this part of the Kent coast.
