Holiday Rental House
A superbly located beachfront cottage ideal for couples and families. Still retaining the original Coastguard's 'look out' the cottage also has the benefit of parking for 2 cars. The cottage has a safe enclosed courtyard with picnic table shaded by a gnarled old grape vine, in front of the property the old coastguard's parade ground has been converted into tennis courts, bookable for use at the local 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 and a comfortable sitting room (with open fire) overlooking the tennis courts and bay. The wet room with loo is on this ground floor level.

There is a bright and airy kitchen/diner and a comfortable sitting room (with open fire) overlooking 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. 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 for you to take on to the beach.. 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. Potential guests need to be sure the bedroom configuration would be suitable. One well behaved, medium sized dog welcome with couple(s), unfortunately we don't accept dogs with family bookings, there is an additional charge of £5 per night, £25 for a week. High chair, travel cot available at no extra cost.More
