A car is recommended although the beach is within walking distance and local buses visit neighbouring areas.

Whitstable prides itself on its authentic and slightly bohemian charm which provides guests with a unique and welcoming feel you don't always find in big cities. Close to Whitstable harbour is the famous Harbour Street which provides guests with pretty shop front, boutiques and restaurants all of which are situated in building that haven't changed from over a hundred years.

Historic Canterbury is just 7 miles away. Visit other local attractions in Ramsgate, Margate, & Broadstairs, including the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery.

Yawl House is named after an old fishing boat used in Whitstable many years ago. You can see an exhibit of such a boat in Island Wall, in the town centre.

The South East England region

Because of its abundance of orchards and hop gardens, Kent is traditionally known as "The Garden of England". The county is home to more country houses and buildings of historic interest per square mile than just about any place else in England.

Explore mighty castles, discover delightful gardens and learn about Roman villas.

Visit the battlements of Dover Castle, Anne Boleyn's ancestral home at Hever, Lullingstone Roman Villa; Chartwell, country residence of Winston Churchill, is also close by.

The Kent area about Whitstable has the perfect blend of coast, countryside and city.

The historic city of Canterbury is just seven miles away. Visit the magnificent Cathedral, and ancient cobbled streets. Punt on the river and view the ancient ruins. It also has a fantastic new shopping centre, and many great restaurants. The nightlife is vibrant with a good mixture of traditional pubs, modern bars and clubs.

Be sure to visit the tiny Tudor village of Chilham just outside Canterbury.


Located on the North-East coat of Kent, Whitstable is a quaint coastal town with a small working harbour, and a cobbled area offering boutiques and fantastic eateries. Famed for its oysters since roman times, it has a unique charm. Walk sideways down Squeeze Gut Alley, visit The Neptune pub on the beach, with its quirky interior.

The beaches are quiet and ideal for families – the bay is shallow and the water warms through the summer.

For entertainment, see the live bands in the pubs and venues. Or stroll along the colourful beach and converted fishermen huts with fish and chips.

Whistable is a popular destination for kite and wind surfing, as well as sesa kayaking & dinghy sailing. Take a bike along the Viking Coastal path, through the Roman ruins at Reculver, all the way to Dover. and cycle along the Saxon Way coastal route to neighbouring areas.

Visit other local attractions in Ramsgate, Margate, & Broadstairs, including the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery.

Local events: Whitstable Oyster Festival in July, Carnival and Harbour Day beg Aug, Regatta mid-Aug, Biennielle festival Sep

"Lovely house for a nice quiet break"

Myself, my husband, my mother and our Labrador went for a 4 day break, nice quiet location but in good driving distance to many areas. Lovely short walk to the beach for nice relaxing dog walks.House … More

"Lovely holiday home and excellent for the amount of people it can hold."

Stayed in this house with friends over Easter weekend. Owner was flexible and easy to contact. Great price and good for the amount of people it can hold. Would highly recommend it.

"Lovely, clean house close to town"

My friends and I were looking for a place to stay together for a recent wedding (there were 8 of us) and I found Yawl House through a friend. The house was lovely, clean and very spacious. The owner was in touch a couple of days before to explain some bits and pieces and the stay went without a hitch. Would definitely reccomend Yawl House to anyone.
