This quaint cottage is superbly located in the charming coastal town of Whitstable in Kent.
With its excellent central location yet secluded position, this could be just the hideaway for that romantic break.
Tucked away down a narrow alleyway off of Swanfield Road, the cottage's 'secret' garden leads to the front door, opening onto a hallway and well-equipped galley kitchen.
On through to the fashionably shabby-chic living/dining room- ideal for curling up on the sofa in front of the fire.
The ground floor also offers an immaculate, white shower room with a heated towel rail.
Take the turning staircase stairs to the open bedroom with an antique style double bed,plenty of clothes storage and blackout curtains for a good night's sleep.
When the sun comes out, make the most of your front garden, a relaxing spot to sit and enjoy a drink, a beer or a barbecue.
Whitstable offers everything you need for an interesting stay - waterfront walks, ancient pubs, quirky shops, excellent restaurants and the beautiful stony beach and harbour.
Amongst the many nearby places to explore, the historic cathedral city of Canterbury is just a short drive away as is Margate with its Turner Gallery and sandy beaches, the medieval buildings of the cinque port Sandwich, dramatic Dover Castle and much more.
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.
