Guestbook comments from the owner

“Beautiful House so near to the Beach!!”

Had a lovely stay at Bexley Cottage, everything is provided for with lots of little touches. Excellent shower, Comfy beds and everything is cosy and clean. Thank you for a lovely stay.

“Absolutely charming!”

Bexley Cottage is a truly lovely place, beautifully decorated, with lots of character and finishing touches. It is set in a quiet area, yet very close to the shops and to the port/beach. It is a great place to stay with children as there are plenty of toys to occupy them.... while parents relax enjoying a cup of tea or watching a DVD near the fireplace.

The cottage is very nicely furnished and equipped with everything you might need. We really enjoyed our stay at Bexley Cottage and felt at home as soon as we stepped in. I would recommend it without hesitation.

Bexley cottage was a great choice for the weekend. Cosy, quirky and a great price

  • 5 of 5

Whitstable is a great place for a weekend, individual shops, coffee houses and pubs and bars but small enough to get about and explore. Becket cottage is well positioned for the town, harbour, walks. It is cosy and beautifully decorated. It was a fab choice for a birthday weekend. Would highly recommend it.

Very well located property.

  • 4 of 5

Bexley Cottage was a very well located property for a stay in Whitstable, it was thoughtfully furnished with welcomed additions of throws and blankets and a lovely sociable communal kitchen area.

Our only negative comments are that there was very little storage in terms of wardrobes for our clothes and that we have stayed in cottages over the Christmas and New year period for the last 4 years and they have always had Christmas decorations up on arrival but there weren't any here. If we had known this we probably would have taken some to make it a bit more festive for the kids.

We had some lovely dog walks along the beach and there are plenty of pubs in Whitstable but the New Inn at the end of the road where the cottage is, was particularly nice to take the kids and the dog. We also went to a fantastic resturant called Jojo's on the road up to Tankerton.

The owners were also very good with communication and got back to us quickly. I would stay here again.

Lovely cottage, lovey holiday!

  • 4 of 5

This is a really lovely cottage - very well equipped for a week long stay with young children and in a fantastic location in Whitstable. I would not hesitate to recommend and would definitely consider going back for another wonderful seaside break.

Listing description accurate with plenty of extras eg toys, books, DVDs, generous provision of bed linen / towels etc and more than just the basics in the kitchen. Clean, well-maintained and excellent responsive customer service from owners.

Nice place & great location

  • 5 of 5

We had two adults and three teenagers. We slept in the main bedroom, the boys took the bunk beds, and my daughter stayed in the attic. We were all happy with the sleeping arrangement and the beds were comfortable.

The kitchen was fully appointed and had everything we needed to cook. There are two large grocery stores nearby and a few butchers and bakers as well.

They had a selection of movies on DVD the boys enjoyed. There is also free wifi in the cottage that worked well.

It is perfectly located, just steps from the harbor and two blocks from the main street of town. Getting around was very easy. It was a little difficult to find a parking place, we had to park a few streets over. The owners provide you with a list of parking places, as well as recommendations for restaurants and attractions. Whitstable is a very charming and nice little seaside resort town.

Special interest holidays:

Whitstable is a destination for windsurfers and kite surfers alike and there is also a lively sailing scene with sailing clubs in Whitstable and nearby Tankerton.

Fantastic walking is to be had along the coastline(The Saxon Shore) and there is woodland nearby you can walk to Canterbury(called the Crab and Winkle Way 7 miles) without barely having to cross a road.


100 yards from harbour and beach.


Only 1h30min from London (road/train).

30 minutes from Eurotunnel terminal.

15 minutes from Canterbury.

Walking distance from train station.

Directions: Take the Whitstable exit from the A299. Follow signs for Whitstable. Drive down Borstal Hill, through traffic lights and under a railway bridge. Continue through the high street until you pass the harbour on your left. Turn right into Bexley Street before you get to the traffic lights. The house is 150m down on your left hand side.


Airport ~ London Gatwick - 66miles ; Airport - London Heathrow - 76 miles; Channel Tunnel - 29.8miles ; Train Station - Whitstable - 0.6miles; Ferry Port - Dover/Calais -31miles ; Ferry Port - Ramsgate/Oostende - 21miles; Motorway M2 - 9miles ; Motorway M20 - 28miles.

Further Details:

Whitstable is famous for its long association with locally caught seafood and in particular oysters, it has one of very few remaining working harbours with a small fleet of fishing boats, that catch fish daily for sale in the harbour fish market.

Many of the towns very good restaurants serve excellent fish dishes, but also cater for meat fans and vegetarians.

The countryside nearby is great for walking and cycling with very little to interrupt you between Whitstable and Canterbury except woodland.
