A fantastic place to stay, right in the heart of Whitstable, couldn't be closer to all the great local restaurants and independent shops. Plus a 5 minute walk to the beach. Nicky was a great host, really friendly, and was there to greet us with a slab of lemon drizzle cake, which didn't last nearly as long as it should have.
