A Short week in Oyster City!

  • 5 of 5

Oyster Bed Cottage is an appropriate name for the cottage we stayed in during our 5 nights in Whitstable as the holiday environment was dominated by the local Oysters and other foods from the sea. The cottage was well equipped and in the most perfect location for shops, restaurants, places to go and of course the beach.

Having a secure private car parking space was also a big plus although once parked up we didn't use the car again for 4 days. Everything in within a short walking distance from the cottage and it was perfect spot to begin longer beach side walks to other towns.

When we arrived we were met by our host with a warm welcome and introduction to the facilities. It was a great way to start our break.

We had the most comfortable stay for my wife's 40th birthday weekend. We had two families of four staying here and not once did we feel we were on top of each other! What a fantastic cottage!

Why Whitstable?

Whitstable town is very fashionable but family-orientated, and just has a really nice laid-back atmosphere.

Walk around the old part of the high street, and browse in some of the quirky little independently run shops.

You can pick up some nice little bits and bobs in one of the proper, traditional shops or galleries in the high street and elsewhere.

The harbour every weekend hosts a market, offering not just fish, but the work of local designers and artists.

The sea fronts are “must-sees” too.

Last but not least are the restaurants..... Famed throughout Kent and the U.K for its Oysters and fine eateries, this is a town well known for its culinary delights... or you may just want good old fish and chips sat on the beach watching the sun go down, whatever your mood, there is a restaurant to suit you.
