Herne Bay

A lovely comfortable hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My sister and three nephews spent a week in this lovely cottage over christmas and had a wonderful time.

The owners live in the house behind the cottage and share a gate so are on hand should you need anything but they did not intrude upon my sisters stay in any way. Upon her arrival she was given a friendly welcome and parking instructions then left to enjoy a week of comfort in a comfortable and warm cottage (complete with christmas tree and decorations) near to shops, restaurants, pubs, beach and everything Herne Bay has to offer.

Dorothy cottage is a special little hideaway in the heart of Herne Bay.

(I am writing this at my sister's request as she has no idea how to use the internet)

This cottage is in a excellent position for both the sea front and the town, it is very well equipped and we would definitely use again should the need arise.

From the Owner

We fell in love with our beautiful Georgian house with sea views as soon as we viewed it. The cottage was on the market at the same time and we were able to purchase them both. The cottage became our home for three months whilst the house was improved to our liking. The nearness of the town centre was an added bonus, reducing the use of the car.
