The space
A delightful, recently renovated 3 bedroom cottage in the heart of Whitstable, a small seaside town just over an hour from London.

The cottage is in a prime location - 30 seconds from Whitstable's quirky Harbour Street, which has lots of amazing independent shops, galleries, restaurants & bars and about 2 mins to the beach and harbour.

This unique cottage is packed with lots of interesting one off antiques, has a shabby chic decor and is full of rustic charm.

The cottage has a lovely walled garden with beautiful rose bushes and home grown herbs as well as a french table and chairs for at least 8 people dining outside ; there's a sitting room with two chesterfield sofas which seats at least six people comfortably; the dining room has a real open log fire and a dining table & chairs that seats 6 people; the downstairs bathroom with the original cast iron roll top bath and there is also a more modern shower room upstairs ; each of the three double bedrooms have antique double beds and egyptian cotton sheets; plus there's an amazing bespoke gallery kitchen with hand -made wooden worktops a range cooker, smeg fridge freezer, and a full complement of pots, pans and utensils. There are also wooden floors and old school radiators throughout the cottage.

Plus, there is Sky TV in living room and attic room, wifi throughout, as well as an ipod connected music system. We also have a fantastic 1970's music box with over 500 vinyl 45's in the dining room which guests are more than welcome to play.

The cottage is perfect place for family and friends to escape from the busy demands of modern life and is also great for entertaining.

The Cook's Cottage is ideal for people who love cooking as it has a bespoke kitchen with a range cooker and is well stocked with herbs & spices and also has lots of cooking books and cooking utensils. With amazing fresh ingredients just around the corner in the many independent shops of Whitstable, it's the perfect place for budding chefs to test out recipes!

However, if cooking isn't your thing, the cottage is a charming escape from the stresses of the modern world.

Guest access
The guests have access to everything - the whole house & garden although the shed at the back of the garden is currently off limits to guests.

Other things to note
We provide a small hamper that contains lots of information about things to do in Whitstable and the surrounding area as well as a bottle of wine as a welcome gift!
There are also lots of books, DVDs and games that guests can use throughout their stay. We also have two toddler gates for each staircase and a travel baby cot for guests that have young children in their party. (Please note that as with all these old fisherman's cottages the stairs are very steep and may not be ideal for small children for people with mobility issues. ) Guests that do book our cottage who have small children do so at their own risk however if the stair gates are used there shouldn't be a problem and we have had lots of guests who have stayed with with young toddlers and there have been no issues.
We are also dog friendly.
Please note: at peak times e.g. Xmas & NY/July & August, we only accept a min of 4 nights stay

Whitstable is fantastic: it's full of independent shops; lots of amazing bars and restaurants; it also has a thriving artist community so there are some lovely galleries and as a consequence the town has a lovely arty vibe to it! Obviously the seaside is a big attraction and just strolling along the beachfront is a lovely way to spend the day.

My husband and I have spent the last three years renovating our cottage in Whitstable and have tried to retain as much of the old character & charm of the cottage as possible. We both love cooking so we have created a bespoke kitchen that is geared around the art of cooking. Whitstable itself has lots of amazing independent shops and restaurants and is a cook's dream as it's easy to get lots of fresh fish and other fresh ingredients to cook with. However, if cooking isn't your thing, the cottage is a charming escape from the stresses of the modern world.
