  • "Great stay again!"

    We were very comfortable and had everything we needed.

  • "How lovely to have a holiday let which provides lots of extras when so many others have the bare minimum - plates, cutlery, mugs etc all in generous quantity!"

    The location was perfect for our needs (visiting family and friends) with the bonus of a lovely walk along the beach to Whitstable - birdwatchers bring your binoculars! This was a comfortable, warm and homely place, with a lovely welcome from the owner. The wifi was good, oven, hob, dishwasher and washing machine all worked well. Only two downsides - the shower is only adequate and we could have done with an indoor airer for our washing and towels (November with a 2 year old) but this ticked every other box for us and was good value.

  • "Probably the best holiday cottage we've stayed in."

    Stylish, comfortable, immaculate and had everything we needed. Not far from the beach and easy to walk into Whitstable.

  • "The hosts were very helpful but discreet."

    The property was very well presented with ample space and excellent amenities. The garden was a very chilled and relaxing place to be. My wife and I were there for a month and found it to be comfortable and welcoming.

  • "A good base from which to explore."

    Clean and well-equipped. Single beds a bit worse for wear. Shower by far the least powerful we've used.

  • "The cottage was clean and as described, but some things were missing -things like a milk jug and sugar bowl, butter dish."

    also no waste paper baskets, only the bin in the kitchen and bathroom, some in the other rooms would be helpful. Also , for people who are not as able, a grab rail in shower would be helpful. Jo was very helpful, we had a leak in the bathroom which was quickly fixed. This was a very nice cottage, but a few personal touches would make it better. Its in a good position, near to everywhere.

  • "The furniture was comfortable, with very good beds and chairs and garden furniture, and the sitting room and garden were spacious."

    It was good to be so near the beach, and there were wonderful nearby walks. The kitchen was equipped with a good supply of plates and cutlery, but only one bowl of any kind. The shower, rather than a pleasant start to the day, was a daily battle to get water that wasn't far too hot. Some years ago I gave up taking salt and pepper to cottage holidays, since we always found it supplied, but here there was none, necessitating a quick dash to the - convenient and very well-stocked - nearby shop, before we could make our evening meal on arrival. Information about the area would have been welcome. A shame about the slow wifi which meant my son had to return to London sooner than planned - he could not work using it.

  • "Well kept and very spacious, with an excellent garden."

    This is one of the nicest properties we have ever rented.

  • "Comfortable, clean and beautifully presented tardis!"

    Looks small from the front but is actually very spacious. Lovely peaceful garden, quiet location that is just a 10 minute walk to the local Co-op and a 25 minute beach front stroll into whitstable. The bungalow has all necessary amenities and we plan to stay here again. The WiFi is slow - an issue in this area but that did not spoil our stay.

  • "Lovely cottage with everything you needed for a comfortable stay, lovely welcoming touch of biscuits tea coffe and milk."

    Clear laminated instructions for all appliances. Very friendly call the day before to confirm needs etc. Central for all the places we wanted to visit . If I had any criticisms at all they were minor . As a disabled guest I found the shower ample big enough for my needs but the floor of th shower base was slippy, we bought an inexpensive bath mat 1st day out, so problem solved, which will now stay in my suitcase for further travel and the broadband is a little slow. May be a problem with teenagers etc but was ok for us.loved the sky tv as the weather wasnt great during our stay but nothing to be done about that .would highly reccomend this property

  • "This was our second visit in a covid year which says something."

    Help was readily but unobtrusively on hand for a minor problem but generally our stay was trouble free and lovely .....only criticism...the bed I used had very definitely seen better days. High quality accommodation though.

    Little extras provided on arrival; tea, coffee, milk etc. Use of a key box. I liked the garden and outside areas.

  • "A beautiful place to stay."

    Clean warm and everything we needed. All instructions for a white goods were laminated and easy to follow. We even had a phone call the day before we went telling us that the door is now keycoded, how did we want the beds made up. She left us her phone number. We were lucky with the weather able to get out and about and explore the area. Found some wonderful country pubs for lunch. Everybody we met were very friendly. The garden was amazing shame it wasn’t quite warm enough to make full use of it. The only slight thing is broadband speed a bit slow but that didn’t spoil our holiday in anyway. We most definitely enjoyed the area. Thank you for making us feel so welcome in your home.

    The only negative was the poor internet speed. With a teen & tween it is on my must have list when booking a break away.

  • "A small but adequate cottage."

    Living room is pleasant and bedrooms are adequate, however bathroom and kitchen are very small with basic equipment. The garden is very nicely planned with lots of seating. We would have liked some information about the cottage such as recycling, nearest medical centre etc. Also suggestions of places to visit like restaurants, pubs, gardens, perhaps suggested by previous guests.

    . We found that some kitchen items that we needed to use were not there, casserole type dishes and measuring jugs would have been very useful as we like to cook several times within our stay,however we were able to improvise.Also a visiters book to leave feedback to the owners would be nice.On the whole a pleasant and comfy cottage.

    There is a small Co-op only 5 min walk away and it is close to a number of marshland areas for walks and bird watching. The milk, cake and tea/coffee were appreciated. We did miss a microwave and wooden spoon but overall we had a wonderful few days in spring-like weather and country quiet.

The property

This timber framed bungalow is situated in the village of Seasalter, Kent, a little coastal estuary town next to its busier neighbour Whitstable.

Equally perfect for families or friends, Smallcroft is a ground floor retreat with a light and fresh interior, welcoming guests to its doors all-year-round.

Comprising a collection of quality rooms, this cottage has been thoughtfully designed to promote comfort and relaxation every day of your holiday.

Inside, discover a contemporary kitchen backed by deep red tiles, and a comfy lounge/diner where you can gather together with your loved ones, morning through to evening.

There is a collection of bedrooms to choose from as the night draws in, including a double with bedside tables and a chest of drawers, a stylish twin, and a single option which also features a trundle bed should you wish to bring along extra guests.

The shower room is decorated in a marble effect, somewhere of quality to get ready during your stay.

Outside is just as appealing, previewing a raised decked area with furniture, as well as a lower tier with comfy seating, your homely place to relax under the sunshine.

The beach at Seasalter is mainly shingle and sand and therefore quieter than the sandy bays at Westgate-on-Sea which is just along the coast.

Whitstable is a quaint coastal town, with cobbled streets, quirky shops and a well-visited fishing harbour.

Take a trip to Faversham where you can take a guided tour.

A charming holiday experience to build some memories.

About the location

SEASALTER

Whitstable 2 miles; Herne Bay 6 miles; Canterbury 5 miles; Faversham 5 miles; Westgate-on-Sea 10 miles.

Seasalter is a pretty village located by the sea on the north coast of Kent, between the towns of Whitstable and Faversham. The beach at Seasalter is mainly shingle and sand and therefore quieter than the more sandy bays at Westgate-on-Sea which is just along the coast. Seasalter Sailing Club, which has a clubhouse on Faversham Road, hosts catamaran boats which race on the River Swale Estuary, and there is also a private Water Ski Club with launch ramp. The Sportsman is a very popular pub and restaurant, earning a Michelin-star in 2008, so if you are celebrating a special event while visiting Seasalter this offers a mouthwatering menu, just make sure to book in advance. Public transport is very well covered in this village with regular buses to Canterbury, Whitstable and Faversham, each place offering visitors a day full of interest. Canterbury is ideal for a day exploring historic houses, taking walks or boat trips along the river, visiting a museum or two, a theatre evening or just enjoying a browse around the shops. A little less well known is that in Canterbury The Spitfire Ground is home to Kent County Cricket Club, and as well as cricket hosts other events during the year, so if a day of "leather on willow" is just for you or maybe a music event is more your scene, look to see what is on during your stay. Whitstable is a quaint coastal town, with cobbled streets, quirky shops and a well -visited fishing harbour where you can buy fish straight off of the boats, and if you want something to wash it down with, then take a trip to Faversham where you can take a guided tour around Shepherd Neame, Britain's oldest brewery dating back to 1698 and select a bottle to take home. After all the tours and sampling you may feel a day of walks and beachcombing could be just what you need, so pack a picnic and with a beach towel and a hat to shield the sun, make for the beach at Seasalter and enjoy the sound of the waves and the scent of the sea!
