Harbourside Cottage is a fully restored, 3 bedroom, self-catering property, ideally located in the heart of the Whitstable's Conservation Area. It is full of original features including traditional fire in the lounge and each bedroom has it's own decorative character fireplace. It's only 5 minutes walk to the beach, harbour and high-street with it's boutique-style shopping and lively restaurants and pubs.
The cottage is immaculately presented and finished to the owners high standards. It combines to provide extreme comfort and a real 'home-from-home' living experience. Locally themed artworks are on display around the house. The combined kitchen and dining area, at the rear of the property, is our favourite as the main living area and has the benefit of good natural light all day and access directly onto the garden.
As well as enjoying the local beach and outside space, you can enjoy our beautiful and secluded 'beach-style' garden. It is complete with patio (outside furniture provided) and BBQ, where you can enjoy the sunshine from breakfast until late afternoon when you come off the beach (beach chairs are provided).
There is a light, spacious family-sized bathroom complete with toilet, bath and powerful shower and 3 beautiful double bedrooms all with comfy beds and furnished in a contemporary style.
