Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Bunting is a beautifully restored Victorian 2 bed apartment situated in the heart of Whitstable's famous Harbour Street and is the sister apartment to Bowline - both situated in the same building. We have blended classic Victorian fundamentals with a great splash of contemporary style and modern appliances.
The colourful and stylish living area and large kitchen diner makes the this the ideal place for exploring all that Whitstable has to offer in terms of independent shops, eateries, the harbour, the Whitstable Yacht Club,stunning sunsets and of course the beach - none of which is more than a 2 minute walk away. It is situated above The Whiting Post, Whitstable's premier fashion boutique.Ideal for a romantic weekend away,or a break with friends or a longer stay to explore Whitstable and Kent.

The South East England region
Kent,The Garden of England,has everything from the rolling hills of the North Downs Way to the surprising solitude of the north Kent estuaries and marshes. Canterbury boasts its spectacular medieval cathedral while near Sandwich at Richborough you can experience the early Roman settlement of Britain.
Castles(Dover,Leeds,Walmer), fishing ports and medieval towns make this corner of Britain endlessly fascinating, while the countryside provides wonderful walks, both coastal and inland.
Whitstable has long been associated with locally caught seafood and in particular oysters, it has a working harbour with a small fleet of fishing boats that catch fish daily for sale in the harbour fish market.
In recent times,Whitstable and its vicinity has become nationally acclaimed for its restaurants and places to eat.
The countryside nearby is great for walking and cycling with very little to interrupt you between Whitstable and Canterbury except woodland - there is a great ride which takes you to Canterbury on the Crab and Winkle Way (the Victorian railway line which took fish and oysters to London ) now set up for walkers and riders to enjoy themselves free from the hassle of traffic.
Whitstable has been voted the town in the UK with the most varied and healthy independent shop scene; and you are staying right in the middle of that! The Whiting Post and its sister shop, The Clothes Horse, are both essential parts of the retail experience. There are many other shops well worth a visit.
The beach at Whitstable and Tankerton are wonderful places for swimming,water sports or just watching the fabulous sunsets.

"A lovely weekend in a lovely place."
Bunting is a really delightful holiday apartment above a shop. It had everything we needed and the beds were so comfortable. I am looking forward to returning soon.

"Good place to stay in Whitstable"
I went with my boyfriend for a couple of days and Adrian was really helpful with the booking after we originally wanted to book Bowline. The apartment itself was very well laid out and looked lovely, obviously a lot of thought has gone into it's design. The front room was really noisy in the morning and the blinds let in a lot of light. In the end we swapped to the smaller room which suited us fine.
The shops and restaurants in Whitstable are great at the beach is so close and absolutely fabulous.
There were only a couple of things like not being able to find tea towels, which we eventually found and the shower took ages and ages to drain away so you end up standing in a sort of bath!
All in all we really enjoyed it.

"You can have your cake - and eat it"
We really enjoyed our stay at Bunting, and the freshly baked cake that was waiting for us when we arrived. The apartment is tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished. More than ample for our family of three. Close to everything you need but surprisingly quiet. We've visited Whitstable several times and this definitely rates as one of the best places we've stayed in, I've already recommended it to a friend.

"Beautiful flat, perfect location"
From the booking experience onwards, it's hard to fault our stay at Bunting. The flat is incredibly tastefully decorated and furnished with everything you need for a relaxing break. We spent most of our time inside the flat sitting at the kitchen table, enjoying the light and warmth from the large window. It's perfectly located for the harbour, walks to Tankerton and onwards, and pottering around Whitstable's lovely shops.
The only improvement that could be made to the flat is to have a larger, more comfortable sofa for lounging on. On colder, rainier days it would be nice to curl up in front of the tv.
We would highly recommend William & Browns (The Tapas) and Samphire if you're thinking of eating out. And The Pearsons Arms is perfect for an afternoon pint.
We had a really fantastic break and would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

"Stylish and comfortable"
This 2 bedroom accommodation was stylish, modern, comfortable and very well equipped. There are two comfortable double beds, made up with fresh, white crispy linen and a large shower room with warm fluffy towels. The kitchen included washing machine and dishwasher and had tea, coffee and milk for us to use on arrival. Centrally located so the shops and the sea front are a stones throw away, this flat is perfect for a weekend away. The greeting we received from the lovely lady in the shop was warm and welcoming and we would have no hesitation in staying again or recommending this flat to anyone else.

"Superb location, stunning apartment"
I love Bunting as did my partner and friends, we visited Whitstable for the first time for a friends wedding and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. The apartment has two good size bedrooms and a superb shower. A great kitchen which was very sociable with a huge sash window allowing us to enjoy the sunshine. As the apartment is above the shop it was very easy to drop off and pick up the keys. As well as staying in this superb apartment I would highly recommend a visit to The Whiting Post the clothes are stunning and the guys who work there are super friendly - we had a fantastic weekend
