Flat One will consider one night stays (for maximum of 2 guests) on request.
The South East England 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.
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.

"Perfect retreat, perfect location, perfect!"
We stayed here for a long weekend over the Bank Holiday and it was perfect for exploring Whitstable and other parts of East Kent and felt like home for those few days. The location on the high street is ideal for mooching around the shops in Whitstable, popping out for a coffee or oysters and the flat itself is charming, cute, very well equipped and is a wonderful little sanctuary to come back to after a day out and about. Julie, the owner is so helpful and friendly and if you are not familiar with the area she will give you plenty of information prior to your stay. We are looking forward to another stay at Flat One later in the year and can't wait to go back.
