Beach Retreat is a chalet-style beach house, a comfortable and cosy place to unwind. All-round views of seaside and countryside. Relax in a deckchair on the raised decking or in the private beach garden; stroll along the beach to Whitstable with its boutiques, restaurants and busy fishing harbour. Ideal for walkers and birdwatchers, with the Saxon Shore Way and Oare Marshes Reserve close by. The cathedral city of Canterbury is just a short drive away.

About Melinda Barry
I love to escape the bustle of everyday life and spend time by the sea. I live just a few miles from Beach Retreat so I'm always on hand to offer my guests any assistance they need or provide local information! For direct bookings please email me, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Melinda Barry purchased this Chalet in 2010
Why Melinda Barry chose Canterbury
Beach Retreat is my dream house by the sea which I bought a few years ago. It's my pleasure to make it available to my guests, many of them regulars, who love this spot as much as I do. All rental income has been put into improving the property, most recently with a beautiful new kitchen area.
What makes this Chalet unique
Beach Retreat is remote and peaceful, yet not isolated. Convenient shops in the village of Seasalter are within walking distance; Whitstable with its working harbour, boutique shops and restaurants is 5 minutes drive, or a pleasant 45 minute walk around the bay. Birdwatchers need hardly leave the house, just wait for the seabirds to arrive at low tide! But Swale Nature Reserve is just down the beach, and Oare Marshes Reserve, with trails and hides for birdwatchers, is a few miles away near Faversham. For a unique local gourmet experience, try The Sportsman down the road - but you will need to book in advance!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
We’re be back
This was our second visit and looking forward to our 3rd
Peaceful area. Very nice to get away.
Charming and comfortable beachside chalet
We had a very pleasant two day break in the chalet, watching the ever-changing sea and bird life. The accommodation is well equipped and comfortable. We particularly appreciated the binoculars provided. We will definitely stay again.
So glad you enjoyed! I look forward to welcoming you back to Beach Retreat.
Lovely beach getaway
The beach hut was lovely, perfect location, peaceful and the hut was in perfect condition and had everything we needed. You can walk along the beach and walkway to Whitstable within an hour and we also cycled all the way to Margate. Hope to be back again to a lovely property and beautiful part of the country.
What a stunning jewel of a beach retreat. Spotlessly clean with everything you need. Beautifully decorated and furnished and a real cosy and relaxing holiday. We de-stressed completely and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Given the chance, we will most definitely be back. Thank you Melinda for a wonderful break.
Great property, amazing location
Stayed for the weekend. This beach retreat was perfect for what we wanted and very reasonably priced as well
