Location description from owner
The Kent region
The Kent coast gets some of the best weather in England. In addition to the many attractions of Whitstable, Canterbury with its historical cathedral is only 7miles away and can be reached by a dedicated bike trail between the two locations (bike hire readily available in Whitstable). The renowned National Trust property, Sissinghurst can easily be visited and offers the visitor the chance to see one of the most famous and beautiful gardens in England. Ashford is a short distance away where visitors can easily take the train to France, Belgium, Amsterdam and Germany. Dover can also be reached very easily and has numerous crossings to France.
Breakwater Cottage is located in the heart of the conservation area in Whitstable. Whitstable has become firmly established as a weekend retreat with its thriving restaurants, bars, cafes and independent boutique shops whilst retaining it's authenticity through it's working harbour, renowned oysters and the annual Whitsable Oyster Festival.
Situated right beside the sea, Whitstable boasts spectacular sunsets and miles of beaches with their distinctive beach-huts and breakwaters. The town has plenty to offer foodies with its farmers market, fish mongers, butchers, bakers and fruit and veg shops. These numerous independent shops are all within easy walking distance of each other.
The much lauded 'Sportsman' restaurant (Michelin starred) is a short taxi-ride away in neighbouring Seasalter. Canterbury with it's spectacular cathedral is 7 miles away - there is a bike route from Whitstable to Canterbury and bikes can easily be hired in Whitstable.

“Cosiest beds made it difficult to stay up after 9pm!”
Lovely cottage, great location, in immaculate condition and very well equipped. The beds were so comfortable it was quite tricky going out in the evening, even though there is a great choice of restaurants just 5 minutes away, we loved the tapas one and the fish and chip shop. Deck chairs for the garden would have been welcome on the 2 days that it didn't rain but otherwise lovely, thank you for caring about your visitors Rafal.
“friendly, nice and convenient”
Cottage was clean, very adequate for our needs and very handily located. We had a very nice time for my mothers birthday, and the house was fine for my young children. There was also a microwave which wasn't mentioned on trip advisor. We would go back. Kirsty, who we dealt with for entry and deposit was very nice, and kindly posted my wife's earrings which we left behind, thanks Kirsty.
“Great Location for town, station and the beach”
Stayed at Breakwater Cottage for a long weekend and we didnt have to take the car out once ! From the cottage you can walk to the town (which has many restaurants) to the sea as well as to the railway station nearby . We also found a bowling alley within walking distance for when the weather took a down turn. The accomodation was clean and comfortable and we managed to stay warm even though the weather was freezing. My children 7 & 4 loved the bunkbeds ! We would definitely come back again , thanks for having us.
“Beautiful cottage in fantastic location”
We had a lovely few days staying at Breakwater Cottage. The cottage was very comfortable, spacious and beautifully furnished. It is also located just a stones throw from the lovely boutique shop of Harbour Street. Perfect for a short break or a longer let, and ideal for young children.
“Fantastic accomodation right in the heart of Whitstable”
Breakwater is a beautifully decorated cottage in a central location that is in easy reach of all of Whitstable's highlights. The cottage was well thought out and comfortable, a real feeling of luxury. Small, tidy enclosed garden which our 10 month old loved. Nice quiet area and as we stayed midweek had a parking space right outside of the cottage. The owner Mr Rataj was very efficient in his dealings with the booking, providing useful information about the property and local area as well as checking we had all we needed. He was also very swift in arranging the return of damage deposit at the end of the holiday too. Would highly recommend
“Great location, perfect for families, excellennt choice of property.”
We stayed for 4 nights in August, with two 10 year olds and a four year old. Plently of room for living area and cooking. 3 great sized bedrooms, with really comfy beds! Garden was great as we could let the children go in and out as they pleased. Kitchen facilities were good and we cooked everything from roast dinner to pancakes! We ate outside a few times too as there was a lovely eating area outside too. Lovely short walk to the sea front, harbour and town. Lots to do within walking distance so the car stayed where it was for most of the week. Sea front had lovely flat path for running, (if you are feeling energentic!). Kids took their scooters which kept them happy too! Will probably rebook in the future.
“Lovely seaside cottage in great location.”
Breakwater Cottage is perfect for a relaxing holiday in the seaside town of Whitstable. The cottage was booked with the minimum of fuss and upon arrival, we found a very clean, tidy, tastefully decorated property. We stayed as a group of four adults and one infant (just one year old) and the cottage provided plenty of space for all of us. The three bedrooms were of a decent size (main room containing kingsize bed) and all the beds were extremely comfortable. The downstairs living space was pretty open plan with a decently equipped kitchen and the modern bathroom at the back of the property was more than suitable. There is a small but tidy and well thought out garden at the rear of the cottage. It is also very safe and secure which is great if you have little ones running around! The cottage is in a great location being only a 5 minute stroll from the sea front, shops and harbour of Whitstable. There is free parking at the cottage although it is on street and you have to compete with day trippers, other cottage renters and local residents for a place outside Breakwater. This wasn't a major issue however as once we got a space, we didn't need to move the cars often. Breakwater cottage is also very close to some great places to visit for the day. There is a great sandy beach at Broadstairs and the historic town of Cantebury is only a 20 min drive away. There are many restaurants to eat at in Whitstable but the pick for us was Pearsons. It might not look much from the outside but the atmosphere and food were superb. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Breakwater Cottage in Whitstable and would definitely recommend. In order to give a complete review however, there were a few points that we have suggested to the owner could be improved. A microwave would have been handy when heating food and sterilising bottles for our little one and more plates and cutlery would have meant we weren't washing up as often (a dishwasher is provided). The owner said these issues are already being sorted so don't let these minor points put you off!
“Lovely seaside retreat”
Beatifully decorated cottage, very vintage feel. Excellent quality beds and good quality bedding which was immaculate. Excellent location very accessable to harbour, beach etc. arrived on a Thursday day time so parking was not an issue but it is just off road parking there is not a specific parking place. Toilet and shower downstairs as per many original victorian properties. House is end of terrace and next to a very pretty church garden. Garden simple and well designed, amazing artificial grass - nice eating area. Would definitely stay again
“Lovely house with safe garden in a great location”
We had a lovely week at Breakwater cottage in June 2012. Our twins (2 years old) loved the secure garden and it's collection of snails and the house was well furnished and comfortable, without being cluttered. Location was great, with it being a 5 mins walk (or 20 mins if every door step has to be stood on as you go down the street !) to the main street / shops and beach. Whitstable is a great location for families with a pebbly beach to explore and a lovely kids playground up by the castle ... we didn't need to do much more to keep us entertained ! Only downside is parking which on a bank holiday weekend was sometimes very difficult to get parked in the same street as the house ... but that's a common Whitstable problem and it encourages you to explore Whitstable on foot rather than head further a field. Also, note that the bathroom is downstairs which is not clear from the property details.
“Modern Elegance in the fabulously vibrant and beautiful Whitstable”
We had an amazing weekend in Whitstable staying at Breakwater Cottage. Our host was super enthusiastic and ensured that we had everything we needed to have a great weekend. Breakwater cottage has a minimalist modern elegance about it. It feels clean and fresh and beautifully decorated with some great vintage and shabby chic pieces which really make you feel like you are staying in a chic boutique hotel. We picked Breakwater because it looked lovely in the pictures but also because it had a king size bed in the master bedroom (many others just had a double) and also its close location to the centre of Whitstable. It delivered on all these points and more. Very cute garden (see if you can spot the interesting thing about it!), next to a gorgeous church with an equally beautiful garden. Things of note - flowers in the bedrooms, soft towels, log burner, fresh coffee, interesting books......You should know - Bathroom and toilet are on ground floor and stairs are fairly steep. It was no problem for us. Whitstable itself is amazing, great food, great shops, working harbour, long beaches. We had awesome dinners at The Sportsman, Whitstable Oyster company (book all restaurants) and the fish and ship shop! We thoroughly enjoyed exploring Whitstable and walking for hours along the shingle beaches. Would definitely recommend to friends and will almost certainly return to BreakWater. Even in the rain we had a good time!
