Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 1 bathroom in quiet street near town centre

Harbourside Cottage is a fully restored, 3 bedroom, self-catering property, ideally located in the heart of the Whitstable's Conservation Area. It is full of original features including decorative victorian fireplace in the lounge and in each bedroom. It's only 5 minutes walk to the beach, harbour and high-street with it's boutique-style shopping and lively restaurants and pubs.

The cottage is immaculately presented and finished to the owners high standards. It combines to provide extreme comfort and a real 'home-from-home' living experience. Locally themed artworks are on display around the house. The combined kitchen and dining area, at the rear of the property, is our favourite as the main living area and has the benefit of good natural light all day and access directly onto the garden.

As well as enjoying the local beach and outside space, you can enjoy our beautiful and secluded 'beach-style' garden. It is complete with patio (outdoor furniture provided) and BBQ, where you can enjoy the sunshine from breakfast until late afternoon, when you come off the beach.

There is a light, spacious family-sized bathroom complete with toilet, bath and powerful shower, 3 beautiful double bedrooms all with comfy beds and furnished in a contemporary style.

About Peter Bell

I live in Orpington, Kent and have 2 children aged 14 & 16. I run my own print management business from home. I also enjoy property renovation, having improved my own home and recently completed a complete renovation project in Whitstable, an area I enjoy visiting immensely.

Peter Bell purchased this house in 2010

Why Peter Bell chose Kent

I chose this property as it has great charm and is full of Victorian features. It had obvious potential as a development project and holiday home, and is very well located for all of Whitstable's attractions. The harbour and beaches are just round the corner!

What makes this house unique

Harbourside is a charming and cosy cottage, a perfect hideaway retreat with great pubs and restaurants nearby. Whitstable is a great arts and crafts centre by the sea, with galleries and boutique shops giving the town a thriving creative feel.

Great fun, great sea food and splendid weather!

  • 4 of 5

We wanted a short break and we love the area round Canterbury. The cottage was clean, tidy and with good facilities. Parking a bit problematic but not overly. The layout of the kitchen diner was fine with good equipment. Proximity to the harbour , great sea food and cheese shop was a boon. Everything walkable. Especially liked the seafront walk for miles!

Comfy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage in Whitstable is perfect to get to know this little town with the train to London and other seaside towns nearby. Close to the waterfront, nicely set up and WARM in the winter, it suited us perfectly.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

I had the most delightful stay. The house is beautiful, clean, comfortable, and in the perfect location. It is bright and airy, very well appointed, and welcoming. I found the neighbourhood to be quiet, and I very much enjoyed the back garden. It's a perfect getaway, and conveniently located. I could walk to everything--the beach, shops, and restaurants. The kitchen was great for cooking all the fruits of the sea, fresh from the harbour market! Peter was always most helpful and friendly. I would recommend the property in a heartbeat, and hope to return soon! It was my first visit to the area--now the cottage and Whitstable are very dear to me!

Great cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great break in this lovely cottage. The cottage had everything we needed and we felt very at home the minute we stepped in the door. Brilliant location with the town and beach only a quick 5 minute walk away at most. Whitstable has loads of great shops and restaurants. Check out the Salt Marsh at the Duke of Cumberland for an amazing dinner and No. 15 for a delicious lunch. Everyone so friendly. We will definitely be back

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and two friends enjoyed a lovely stay at this cottage. It was clean, warm and comfortable, we each had our own room. It is extremely well situated with the shops and many restaurants being a stone's throw away. The road is quiet and whilst I could have parked my car just outside, the road is quite narrow, so I parked it just round the corner on a wider road. Parking is not an issue. The wifi works well and all the appliances are in good condition.

We are located minutes from the beach and town centre. You will find opportunities to try out water sports with local operators including kite surfing, windsurfing, sea kayaking and fishing. There is even a water-ski club where you can soak up the atmosphere. They have great spot behind the beach where you can have a drink and some lunch, whilst enjoying the amazing sea views from the balcony.

There is also a cycle hire centre at the end of our road so you can enjoy the varied cycle routes along the coastal path or cycle inland towards Canterbury, taking you through beautiful woodland scenery.

Whitstable prides itself on the varied boutique-style shopping and there are many outlets up and down the high street. Harbourside Street is especially quaint with it's famous fish & chip shop and restaurants including my favourite, the Saltmarsh restaurant in the Cumberland Hotel.
