We fell in love Whitstable after staying in this beautiful coastal town during 2013. We enjoy wandering through the quaint high street, with it's independent shops and fantastic restaurants.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Sherbet Cottage is beautifully appointed and full of character; so well equipped I cannot think of anything more that could improve it. It is fantastically situated only a couple of hundred yards from the harbour and only a few mintues walk to the town centre and beaches. The parking space for the car made life so easy as off or on road parking in Whitstable can be difficult.

Beautiful, cosy cottage with all mod cons and great location

  • 5 of 5

The owners thought of everything, with lots of special touches (penny sweets, boats games and red wine!). They were really responsive when we thought the heating wasn't working, nothing was a problem. Would highly recommend.

An amazing find....will be back for sure.

  • 5 of 5

Sherbet cottage is wonderful. First class decor a great location....we didn't use the car all weekend. The cottage is cosy with a great wood burner and comfortable lounge area. Well equipped kitchen and a good size dining room. All bedrooms well furnished and a good size, with lovely little homely touches and great little extras. As for the mini sweet shop what a fab idea such fun. Nice little garden area with seating however it was -2 most of our weekend so we didn't use this area !

We found parking easy with one space at the rear of the property the other two cars easily found parking in the next street and as there is no need to move cars as everything is within walking distance this worked for the whole weekend.

Wonderful restaurants and bars and great independent shops and of course the sea all on your doorstep.

We are normally pretty difficult to please but there was really nothing we could fault.

Thank you again Sherbet cottage for a wonderful weekend.....see you soon.

A really beautiful, well presented house with everything you need for a relaxing time. The wood burner is very simple to use making the house very toasty. The house is very close to the front so drop the car off and enjoy whitstable

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.
