  • “Cottage had everything we could need.”

    Nice to have a large tv to watch with Netflix built in too! Pub across the road is very nice, little expensive but very friendly. Regular bus service outside to the seaside or to Canterbury. Thank you!

The property

Swallow Cottage is a traditional brick cottage with a renovated interior situated in the gorgeous seafront town of Herne Bay.

This mid-terrace property boasts everything you need for a self-catered stay, perfect for a small family or group of friends looking to explore the Kent coastline.

Make use of the appliances in the kitchen to rustle up your favourite meals so you and your family can enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal together on the dinner table in the living space.

The living room/diner is a lovely space to relish in some much-needed family time, snuggle up on the couch as you watch the TV, or kick back with a captivating novel, with a feature fireplace adding a wealth of character to the decor.

The ground-floor also benefits from a convenient cloakroom, whilst upstairs there is a lovely bathroom fitted with a bath and overhead shower, so you can choose to start your day with a relaxing soak or a quick shower.

Retire to one of the two charming bedrooms, both furnished with TVs to enjoy during a lazy Sunday morning in bed.

Take in the fresh seaside air as you sip on an ice cold glass of wine in the enclosed courtyard, a moment of quiet for you to enjoy by yourself.

Pop next door to The Curious Cat, a gastro-pub where you can buy local cask ales and enjoy classic pub grub.

Herne Bay is a stunning Victorian seaside resort boasting a two-mile stretch of sandy views and a unique shingle beach, with a fun pier where families can enjoy fairground rides, a retail village and local delicacies at food and drink stalls.

A walk down the road will take you to Curtis Wood Park, a dog-friendly nature reserve for morning woodland walks, you can also venture over to Strode Park, home to an open air theatre for shows, music and entertainment.

Drive over to Canterbury, a thriving and historic city which boasts a handful of shops, bars, restaurants, and historic attractions such as a cathedral, abbey, museums and medieval gatehouse.

Nearby towns include Whitstable, a cobbled harbour destination where you can sample local, fresh seafood, or you can find your way to the coastal resort of Reculver, home to a unique collection of wildlife and plants.

Herne Bay is the perfect spot to mix a relaxing seaside holiday with an adventurous countryside paradise, surrounded by four hectares of meadows, woodland and fields to discover.

Swallow Cottage is a wonderful property within a short distance of beaches, watersports, and nature walks in Kent.

About the location


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.
