Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Glorious sea views and just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach! This stylish and comfortably refurbished end of terrace 19th century coastguard's cottage is full of Whitstable coastal charm.
Still retaining the original coastguard's 'look out' the cottage also has the benefit of parking for 2 cars. A safe enclosed courtyard has a picnic table shaded by a grape vine. In front of the cottage the old coastguard's parade ground is now tennis courts, bookable for use at the increasingly popular Windy Stores cafe. A few rackets and tennis balls are available at the cottage for guests' use as is our KAYAK!
Downstairs the cottage has stripped floorboards throughout. There is a bright and airy kitchen/diner, comfortable sitting room (with open fire) over looking the tennis courts and bay. The wet room with loo is on this ground floor level.
On the first floor the main bedroom has a four-poster 4'6" double bed, positioned to overlook the fabulous Whitstable Bay. Off this bedroom is the original Coastguard's "look out" (binoculars supplied!) White floorboards.
The second smaller bedroom has a 5' zip & link bed (can be two 2'6" twin beds). Carpeted Floor.
The third, loft-style bedroom is accessed from the second bedroom up a small enclosed staircase and has a 2'6" bed, again with lovely views over the bay. Laminated floor.
The family bathroom on the first floor has a roll top bath and separate shower cubicle. Pebble flooring.
Famed for its oysters, Whitstable boasts many restuarants and the North Kent coast offers plenty to explore all year round, with the cathedral city of Canterbury only 8 miles away. The historic harbour is still active and incorperates a renowned daily fish market. Harbour Street has many art galleries and artisan shops.
Collapsible beach chairs and picnic table, buckets and spades available.
The cottage works well for families, 2 couples sharing or just one couple who like to have the views, parking and a little more space. 5 adults booking would need to be sure the bedrooms configuration would be suitable.
1 well behaved medium sized dog welcome for an additional charge of: £5 per night for short breaks, £25 for a week..
Single couples welcome to bring a dog at no additional cost.
High chair, travel cot and a 3 wheeler pushchair available at no extra cost.
