Curlew Cottage is an original fisherman's cottage that has been beautifully restored, to create a modern, seaside holiday home. It is light and bright, with white-washed floorboards upstairs and varnished reclaimed floorboards downstairs. It is decorated with a seaside theme including prints on the walls from local artists.
The cottage is in a superb location within the Conservation Area, just a stone's throw from the harbour and beach, as well as a short walk to Harbour Street and the High Street with its perfect mix of traditional greengrocers, bakers, butchers and fish shop interspersed with tempting boutique and gift shops, art galleries and delicatessans.
There is a good sized decked and gravel garden, which is south facing with a lovely sun trap, and the added bonus of secure off street parking for one car.
The owners are members of the Whitstable Yacht Club and can offer lots of advice to seafaring enthusiasts looking to sail or windsurf.

Kent is traditionally known as "The Garden of England" Kent is the south-easternmost county in England. It is bounded on the north by the River Thames and the North Sea, and on the south by the Straits of Dover and the English Channel. The continent of Europe is a mere 21 miles across the Strait.
One of the most agreeable spots along the north Kent coast and a popular day-trip destination for Londoners, pretty, bohemian WHITSTABLE has been farming the oysters for which it is famed since classical times, when the Romans feasted on the region's marine delicacies. Oysters are still farmed in the area today, but Whitstable is nowadays more dependent on its commercial port, fishing and seaside tourism. The annual Oyster Festival (last two weeks of July) sees the town come alive with parades, performances and a raucous oyster-eating competition.
