The space

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.

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.

Sammy and James were very kind and informal. They let us check in early, and had no issue with check out time either. They left us breakfast all ready on the dining room table as we slept a little late and they had left for a bike ride or a run. 2 very nice people. The house was clean and quiet. We were a little disappointed that it was a shared bathroom, which we must have overlooked when booking the accommodation. Great location for the charming town of Whitstable, with the center of town and the harbour/beach being less than 5 minutes walk away.
