Whitstable

Whitstable is well known for it's variety of pubs and restaurants, catering for all tastes and budgets. Locally caught seafood is popular - native oysters, in particular, being the locally harvested delicacy. There is an Oyster Festival celebrated in the town in late July which brings together food, art and culture for locals and visitors to enjoy. The harbour plays host to small bands throughout the summer months and has a thriving 'End of the Pier' Comedy Club.There's plenty to keep you busy in Whitstable: visit the town's fabulous independent coffee shops, bars and restaurants, enjoy the local boutique stores and numerous art galleries and buy fresh fish at the harbour, straight off the fishermans boats. Visit the local cheese shop, pay a visit to the cupcake shop and take the children to the old fashioned sweet shop just minutes away from Castaway Cottage. Grab some home made soup from the deli or book into celebrity chef Richard Phillips owned The Pearsons Arms for dinner with stunning views over the sea.The beach is just a few minutes walk from Castaway Cottage. Enjoy watching the children crabbing, book into a kite surfing course or sailing lessons at the local sailing club or just enjoy a saunter along the seafront to lunch at JoJo's in Tankerton or at the award winning gastropub The Sportman in Seasalter.There are some excellent routes for both walkers and cyclists (bikes can be hired at Whitstable Cycle Hire - just a few doors along from Castaway Cottage). Enjoy the popular Crab and Winkle Way bike route - following an old railway line in and out of Whitstable, the route takes you right into the centre of Canterbury some 7.5 miles away via some stunning countryside and virtually all of it off the main roads. Alternatively, follow the Saxon Way along the seafront via Herne Bay where you can enjoy lunch at the Les Routiers recommended Le Petit Poisson restaurant overlooking the sea. Maps, routes and information are available within Castaway Cottage.Whitstable is home to a thriving artists community and you will find weekly changing displays of local work at the Fish Slab Gallery in the High Street along with a pop-up art shop in Harbour Street. Local artists often display their work in the town's Horsebridge Centre and occasionally there are 'Open-House' events where you can meet the artists and view their work. See art come alive at the Whitstable Biennale (next one takes place in 2014), described by The Guardian as 'A new pearl amongst the art world oysters".

“Wonderful stay in Whitstable”

Reviewed 25 Jan 2012

Had a lovely stay in Castaway Cottage, Impeccably clean and beautifully styled. Modern and well equipped. Really enjoyed using the wood burning stove even though the cottage was warm enough without it. Pretty back yard to sit out in too. Kids loved it . Went out by themselves Whitstable feels very safe. Nice bit of freedom for London kids. will come again soon.
