Beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

So many interesting features in the cottage. Colour scheme gorgeous, bedding very high standard. Loved all the objects around the cottage. Very cosy for nights in. No negatives at all, just could consider a non slip mat for bath when having a Shower and thermostat in shower. Loved Whitstable cafes, shops and bracing walks along the beach. We would all like to come again.

A lovely cottage right in the heart of Whitstable

  • 5 of 5

My mum, teenage sons & I loved our stay at pretty Sherbet cottage. It is very close to everything in Whitstable but quiet and peaceful. The decor is lovely and everything has been thought out really well. The bed linen, towels etc are of really good quality and the beds really comfortable. My son loved the sweet shop! The owner is very helpful and replied very quickly to messages and the house has a parking space which is really useful.

Cosy, very clean and well presented. Every detail has been thought of

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location with parking. Very comfortable beds with beautiful bed linen, just the right weight duvet and throws. The decor was to my taste and the finish was very good. Every small detail had been thought of. We would definitely recommend to others, although not if we go back as we will want it!

Lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We booked Shertbet cottage for a girls 'catch up' weekend and it was perfect for us. Lovely kitchen with everything we could need for a night in and then close to the shops and restaurant for a night out! Beautifully decorated with lots of nice personal touches. We will be back!

A Beautiful cosy little retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful little house tucked away in a nice quiet street just minutes from the sea. The house is tastefully decorated and has clearly been lovingly restored to such a high standard offering all the mod cons you could possibly need and nice welcoming little touches from the owner.

It is situated just off the high street with its own off street parking, which is a huge bonus, within easy access to an array of cute little shops, eateries and pubs and just a stones throw from the beach.

We stayed for 4 nights but we felt as if we had been away for so much longer and because of its location we were able to go for days out to Canterbury, Herne Bay and Leeds Castle which were only a short drive away. The Sportsman Pub (with it's Michelin Star) is well worth a visit and we were taken there by a very friendly happy local cab driver who the restaurant recommended. In fact nothing seemed to be too much trouble for anyone in the local area.

I would thoroughly recommend a stay at Sherbert Cottage and a visit to Kent to anyone.

Map

Special interest holidays:

Quite simply, Whitstable is unlike any other town you will visit by the sea and it manages to offer something for everyone. It is best known for its native oysters and its annual Whitstable Oyster Festival but it also benefits from a strong arts culture embodied by the numerous independent Whitstable galleries and craft shops and has a rich maritime history. Whitstable boasts spectacular sunsets and miles of beaches and its distinctive character and ambience is all within easy reach of the city (60 miles east of London).

As you're by the sea, why not take a beginners course in sailing, windsurfing or kitesurfing? Whitstable has excellent conditions for water sports and Whitstable Yacht Club is a good place to start. If you are looking to buy suitable clothing and accessories for anything and everything marine related, there's no better place to go than the Dinghy Store. Whitstable Marine just next door, can provide everything from kayaks to water-ski equipment.

Coast/Beach:

Walking distance to the harbour and beach.

Travel:

Whitstable has a direct fast train service from London which takes just over an hour, there are services from train stations including Victoria and St. Pancras.
