Double room in a charming seaside terrace house owned by James and Sammy. You can read more about us below, but firstly, our lovely house by the sea. We have a mid terrace, three bedroom house, about a 3 minute walk from the beach, called Lilly House. We are offering 2 comfy double rooms with shared use of the bathroom, overlooking the back garden. Cereals, toast, tea and coffee included in the morning and if you have any special requests please do ask us and we'll do our best to arrange this. It is a very peaceful and quiet road and the birds are always singing. Guests are more than welcome to use our beloved kitchen with huge range cooker and cosy living room with wood burning stove.
There is always a friendly welcome with recommendations for local restaurants, walks or pubs. You can read more about these in our guidebook, or feel free to contact us directly and ask. We have a large brick BBQ in the garden and also a gas paella ring and picnic table. There is also a hammock if you just want to have a drink in the garden and relax..
Lilly House has arguably the best location in Whitstable, with the beach, train station and Harbour Street all less than a 5 minute walk away. For a more comprehensive list of Whitstable's pubs and restaurants please look at our guidebook, and check back from time to time because we are always adding to it.
A car is not needed, though if you are driving there is free street parking.
Whitstable has many art galleries and the collections and exhibtions change frequently. There are countless beach and forest walks to in the local area, ranging from short strolls to long coastal walks. Cyclists of all abilities love this part of Kent due to its flat coastal paths and its much more challenging off road forest trails. James can advise you on the best places to go mountain biking within a 15 minutes cycles from the front door. There is rear access to the garden so muddy bikes aren't a problem at all!
Additional accommodation available-sofa bed in 3rd bedroom suitable for adults or children at minimal cost.
We will also be letting out the entire house during late July and August. We will be listing it as a 2 bedroom house.
Guests will be lent a key enabling access as they please. Visitors are welcome to use our kitchen facilities and living spaces.
Interaction with guests
We are happy to answer questions via Airbnb messages before booking and by text, call or email following booking.
During your stay we're happy to advise you on the local area or leave you alone. We've shared many stories and drinks with guests and have never even met some as they needed to sleep off jet lag or were busy at weddings and family parties.
We are easy going but we do love our home by the sea. Feel free to cook, rest and enjoy, but leave it as you found it. We may end up sharing a meal or bottle of wine, and music, but I'll tidy up too-more hands make light work.
If something breaks-tell us.
If you need something, ask us.
If you want privacy, let us know.

We are both teachers, living in our beautiful house by the seaside. Sammy is a primary school teacher working at a school in Canterbury. In the holidays she fills her time with tennis, running, baking and sewing.
James is a music teacher and his interests include cooking and cycling.
When not at work we like to spend time at the beach and going on adventures around the world.
