About the property

Charles Dickens Cottage - Minutes from the Beach, Shops And Restaurants

A charming Cottage in the center of Whitstable, just right to relax within easy walking distance from the town.

Situated just one minute from the bustling shops, cafes and restaurants of Harbour Street and three minutes to the beach, this traditional fisherman's cottage decorated in pale cream and accessorised with calming accents of sea-side blue is definitely a stress free zone. It's corner position and open-planned living area gives a feeling of life and space. Sympathetically furnished and decorated to afford style and comfort whilst echoing the theme of sea-side living. A wooden cottage kitchen leads to a bathroom with a full length bath and fixed overhead shower. The two double bedrooms, one with a double bed the other with twin beds, continue the relaxing mood. Outside there's a courtyard garden perfect for children and outdoor dining. So just park your car and chill out in this delightful cottage.

The charming seaside town of Whitstable is located in the Northeast of Kent. The town is situated approximately five miles north of the city of Canterbury and two miles west of Herne Bay. From the seashore, the town of Whitstable also boasts excellent views of the Isle of Sheppey which is only a short distance away.

One of the main characteristics of the quaint town of Whitstable is the booming oyster business that it has all year round. Oyster harvesting started in the Roman times and is a continued pastime in the town of Whitstable, as well as providing the local bars and restaurants with fresh oysters and other seafood daily, Whitstable also celebrates the importance of oyster to their town with a festival.

**Please Note: the NEW Holiday Lettings nightly pricing & tariff calculator displayed to the right, calculates nightly rates by taking the weekly tariff rate and dividing it by 7. This nightly rate is misrepresented, as it does not take into account Short Break Percentages explained in the Tariff Notes section below. Sadly we have no control over this new trend towards nightly 'hotel-style' pricing so please get in touch and we will be happy to help you further.**

Fantastic Cottage in Centre of Whitstable

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my wife stayed at this property with our eldest daughter. We loved this cottage as it was perfectly located and had everything one needs for a short trip. The housekeeper met us with the keys which made life very simple and the booking process with Daniel was very efficient.

We look forward to returning.

The harbour has an interesting history including diving, shipbuilding and fishing, coupled with many local water sports clubs making Whitstable a mecca for windsurfers, kite surfers and sailors of all ages.

Along the coast are grassy slopes down to the sea, allowing bracing walks along the promenade to enjoy the bracing sea air. There's also a chance too to get some wonderful views of Whitstable's skyline.
