  • "We had a really good time."

    Very modern. It was really good to have a decent, complete kitchen set rather than the one rusty saucepan, old plastic spoon and broken knife you might get elsewhere in older properties. The property owners have obviously spent some time thinking about what would make peoples lives easier while on holiday as everything was to hand and in good condition. Good internet was also a bonus to do research into day trips, you could probably do a working holiday too if you wanted to (you don't). Place was really clean. Beds and sofas were really comfy and it's in the right place as a base to go and visit...well...anywhere really. Its an hour and a bit to get to Dover by car and you can't get much further without getting your feet wet. Also 5 mins walk from the train station so you can hop on and do a tour of East Kent easily. Whitstable itself is a cross between independent shops and big multi's. There are 2, fantastic, independent coffee shops within a few minutes walk, but if you really want a costa, it's 10 minutes walk away in the center of town. You can get your beer from Sainsburys, or there is an independent store with local ales just down the road. You can get a fish supper from the Co-op, or you can go down the sea front and have it cooked almost fresh off the boat for you right then and there. Only 2 downsides, and I think this first one is known as every room had a (decent) fan, the place is HOT, especially the top room. The best airflow you could hope for was to open the back door and the Juliet window on the 1st floor. This meant that all the other doors had to be closed to stop them slamming. The other downside, and it's not really the properties fault, is getting your car in and out of Whitstable itself. Very narrow roads, but then the village is 400 years old. I'll probably be thin too by the time I get that old! That inconvenience is a small price to pay really. It is a very pleasant place to stay.

    Beds were super comfy and, rarely, the sofas were large enough to accommodate us all comfortably and were very comfortable!

The property is perfectly situated for the town centre, harbour, and sea front. It is also close to the railway station from where there is a frequent service to other towns along the coast and beyond. There is also a frequent bus service to Canterbury although we enjoyed biking there down the traffic free "Crab & Winkle Way ". Whitstable is a lovely typically English seaside town and we can definitely recommend this property for anybody wishing to stay there, although the less mobile should be aware it is spread over 3 storeys.

About the location


  • Herne Bay 5 miles
  • Canterbury 7 miles

The lively town of Whitstable, which is known as the “Pearl of Kent”, dates back to before the Domesday Book. Its seaside location makes it ideal for watersports all year round, and its fishing heritage is reflected by the Oyster Festival, which takes place every July. The buzzing local museum/art gallery introduces around six new exhibitions each year, and has a fabulous coffee shop. Whitstable Castle dates back to the 1790’s, and hosts events all year round including a big May Day celebration with contributions from local musicians and artists. The town is home to a small, independent brewery, and any need for retail therapy will easily be satisfied by the range of both national stores and charming small, independent shops. Whitstable is also home to The Pearsons Arm, a gastropub owner by celebrity chef Richard Phillips and nearby in Seasalter is the Michelin star-awarded gastropub, The Sportsman which is also well worth a visit. The city of Canterbury, with its fine 6th century cathedral is just 7 miles away; also nearby is Herne Bay, from where on a clear day you can see as far as Southend and the Isle of Sheppey.

Note: No stag/hen parties, or similar.
