My husband and I have 5 children between the ages of 3 and 20. We live and work in the East Midlands but love to escape to the sea whenever we can.
Jo Blatherwick purchased this cottage in 2012
We have holidayed in Whitstable as a family over the last 3 years,having previously never visited this fantastic place!We now wonder why we ever bothered to go abroad because not only does the sun nearly always shine but we love the place,from the stunning sunsets to the fantastic places to eat and shop. We often travel by train because we can walk to the house easily and it is on a pretty quick line from St Pancras.
We have enjoyed furnishing and decorating the property and hope that visitors will appreciate our choices. We have tried to make it a home from home and also buy the best of everything to keep it special but with a quirky touch
The house is in the centre of everything-close to an array of yummy eateries. We love having sea views and our own path down to the beach. The little ones love showering off in the shower on our decking and are happy to play on the beach whatever the weather,especially if they can go to the do-nut man!

Lovely cottage slap bang in the middle of Whitstable!
Owner Jo was extremely helpful & property had everything we needed!
Had a great time in Dec, would b fantastic in summer!
Beautiful period cottage situated directly behind the beachfront and close to the lovely high street. Very rainy while we stayed but that didn't stop the children crabbing the whole time off the very close pier. Wonderful stay and we will be back!
We had a wonderful time staying in this fabulously cute cottage right in the heart of Whitstable. I'm full of Brie, wine, and er, donuts! It was a scorching weekend too. We walked for miles and now I resemble a part boiled lobster. Must do it again some time, with sunscreen. Thanks, Scarlett
