It was horrid and we didn't stay. I have only put a star as we weren't able to send without.

  • 1 of 5

We arrived full of anticipation for a lovely Christmas and walked in and more or less walked out again. Didn't like anything about it, especially the stairs, open-sided and no rail - not suitable for children or elderly. Nothing like the description and we are very dubious about the reviews. Suggest you go and look for yourselves.

A charming cottage right in the heart of Whitstable

  • 5 of 5

A really beautiful and stylish cottage with two decent sized bedrooms. Very well-equipped kitchen and loved the dining table and benches.

Very close to everything in Whitstable and with a sea view from the roof terrace.

Only had a minor issue with the shower, but that may have been us being foolish.

Would definitely stay here again.

Nice

  • 4 of 5

Great, very cosy. Nice atmosphere. Goos location, close to beach, shops, restaurants. Shower could be improved. Busy road, quite noisy. One oart of cover on staurs is loose, should be repaired to avoid accidents.

Lovely cosy cottage with a sea view.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay right by the seaside. Seconds away from the beach which was great for kids and the dog. And even a chance to enjoy an early evening drink on the roof terrace which was great for everyone! Already thinking about going back.

So quirky! A eclectic mix of modern and old yet so cofortable and homely

  • 5 of 5

There's so much to do, walking along the beach, places to eat and lots of independent shops you don't find on the average high street. Whitstable is a nice mix of chilled yet it's vibrant. Next time i visit, I'll be staying at the Captains Cottage again and will definitely utilise the Captain s beach hut.
