About diane wray

I love being by the seaside and Whitstable has beaches, boats and fun with lots of restaurants, cafes and bars. If you don't book for the weekend we go for a chilled weekend.... but due to so many bookings not often possible!

Why diane wray chose Whitstable

Good size property at a very reasonable price for the conservation area which is only a few minutes stroll from the waterside. Very light and with a good sized garden getting sun all day. Suitable for a single person or up to six people. Parking is free on surrounding roads.

Price is set low for 2-4 people so the price is reasonable for a small party. For 5-6 people there is a modest extra charge depending on length of stay. As many Whitstable properties charge much more this is a good reasonable holiday cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Handy for the beach, restaurants, cafes and harbour ( beach 3 mins stroll according to Google) but the garden gets lots of sun if you want to chill at home

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 3 x couples who stayed at the cottage for NYE 2017. We had a wonderful time in this welcoming and well-equipped cottage. The cottage is close to all local amenities and a really short walk from the beach - we especially enjoyed the NYE fireworks on the beach. We cooked at the cottage and enjoyed meals together in the lovely open-plan kitchen/Diner. A lovey stay and we can't wait to return.
