Flat One Harbour Street
About the home
A holiday apartment with everything; style, comfort and a perfect location in the heart of Whistable's Harbour Street. Just 90 paces from the front door will set you on the beach at the famous Royal Native Oyster Stores Restaurant. A public car park is just around the corner while the Tudor Tea Rooms, the Horsebridge Arts Centre, boutique shops, galleries, restaurants and bars are all close by. Refurbished by local designer/builder, Kas Kasparian, Flat One is located in what was once the Palais de Luxe, a historic cinema which showed silent movies. The apartment is centrally heated and all linen and towels are included for your stay - along with tea, coffee, milk and sugar. Pastries and wine are also provided on arrival to welcome guests and there are always fresh flowers in the living room and bedroom. The owner enjoys getting away here too. As she's a writer, you may find some of her work on the bookshelves...

The South East England / Kent region
Kent is known as 'The Garden of England'. It is a stunningly beautiful county with coastline, countryside and historic cities to visit. It is also quite close to London and to the ports of Dover and Folkestone from where it is easy to hop across to France.
The Whitstable area
Whitstable is a wonderful coastal town, famous for its association with the oyster industry.
It holds an Oyster Festival every July commencing with a parade and followed by a whole week's celebration of culture and gastronomy.
Locally caught seafood is a speciality. There are Michelin starred restaurants here as well as a wonderful old fish and chip shop in Harbour Street that survived the great Flood in 1953.
Many artists and musicians have settled here so there are plenty of galleries, exhibitions and concerts. A beautiful tea garden overlooks the sea opposite Whitstable Castle.
Bikes can be hired and plenty of water sports are on offer with tuition and hire from the Yacht Club.
Whitstable is close to both countryside, (orchards and cherry fields are a ten minute drive out of town) and the city of Canterbury.
