Extensive renovations are now complete (July 2015) and this lovely period home by the sea, Heron House, is ready for holiday bookings. Our place offers guests a great central location in the heart of Whitstable's Conservation Area - just a hop and a skip to the beach and the high street. There's plenty of space (2 reception rooms, large kitchen/diner, 4 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms), cosy corners, a small garden with patio and a garden room to enjoy.
Heron House is perfect for guests of all ages and we welcome pets. From couples to extended family groups, we offer a comfortable, classic period home-from-home with the benefits of WiFi, wood burner, extended kitchen/diner and private parking for one car.
The house itself is detached and offers a peaceful oasis between the bustling weekend crowds on the waterfront and high street. The interiors are full of Victorian character, all fully refreshed following recent full renovation, but with a modern twist. There is a newly extended kitchen/diner with breakfast bar and two sets of French doors leading out to the patio - a great space for entertaining with seating for up to 8 guests plus high chair. There are 2 double bedrooms and 2 with twin beds that can also be made up a double rooms, all with king sized beds. There are also 2 bathrooms, both with rolltop baths and shower facilities. In the evenings you can choose between two cosy lounges: the snug is open plan to the kitchen and offers seating for 4, an AGA woodburner and TV/DVD. Next door is the front lounge with seating for 5, a feature fireplace and larger TV/DVD.
Outside there is the all-important parking space for 1 car, a small secure garden with small lawn, patio dining area and access to the garden room. There is seating for 8 guests, tables and parasol, Weber BBQ and deckchair. The garden room offers further space to relax with a daybed and large beanbag.
