About the Owner

We purchased the cottage in 2010 when our daughter was studying at nearby Kent University in nearby Canterbury. In November last year we commenced a total refurbishment and now that it is finished we are so pleased with how things have turned out. We have lived in London all our lives but have always holidayed in Kent since children.

We enjoyed our weekend stay in Iris Cottage very much. The cottage was clean, well-equipped and very nicely decorated. It was also located within easy walking distance of the town centre and harbour.

Perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cottage for the weekend with three of my friends and we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The cottage is clean and beautiful. All the little details made our stay lovely and comfortable (especially the mirrors in every room for four girls to use while getting ready!). The beds were also very comfortable. The kitchen had all the utilities you need and is spotlessly clean. The cottage is in a perfect location, just a 5 minute walk from the heart of Whitstable. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for being so helpful Donna and Robert!

Beautiful Cottage - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Iris Cottage for 2 nights last weekend and had a wonderful weekend.

The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and had all the amenities needed in a house. Each room is kitted out with brand new appliances, and it looks like a show home! The kitchen was great and we found everything we needed.

The whole house is beautifully decorated with a nautical theme and the attention detail in all the rooms are quaint with a vintage feel.

We had a great weekend, and was great value for money.

I like the fact the cottage has a back story, and is named after the owners mother - what a lovely tribute to her!

From the Owner

We love Whitstable and we are sure everyone does too who visits this quirky little seaside town just south of the busy City of Canterbury. The cottage is situated just off the Canterbury Road at the start of the busy High Street. there are no parking restrictions so on street parking is fine. There is no need to drive as Whitstable Railway Station is situated five minutes walk away with the High Speed Rail Link into London St. Pancras is just over an hour or Victoria in an hour and fifteen. Buses also run frequently to Canterbury and a new service along the coast to Broadstairs and Margate.

From the Owner

The cottage is situated within five minutes walk of all the pubs and restaurants that Whitstable has to offer. The High Street also offers several small supermarkets, three butchers, two greengrocers and two bakers. Along with several good fish and chip shops, an evening in the pebbled courtyard with a take away and a glass of wine is a must! There are also several antique shops, art galleries and charity shops along with a locally produced cheese shop, cupcake shop and for those of you that remember, an 'Offy'...an off licence! Inside the property we have furnished it to provide you with a luxurious stay. There is a small quaint front sitting room with TV, a spacious dining/family room with TV/DVD, sofa and dining table. The fitted kitchen has a new electric oven with gas hob and integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer. There is a washer/dryer in the utility room and a beautiful large half tiled bathroom. upstairs the twin room sports a nautical seaside theme whilst the double room is tranquil in shades of cream overlooking the courtyard and garden. The upstairs shower room is small but adequate and luxurious.
