About the Owner
About Tim Wood
We are a building company who normally do projects for private clients in central London. This house was a project for ourselves and our families and it required a lot more work than we first thought. But as anyone can see when they stay, a great deal of hard work/time and love went into making it into what it is today. It is our home from home and we relax as soon as we walk through the door. We hope you will feel the same.
Tim Wood purchased this cottage in 2013
Why Tim Wood chose Kent
I went to Whitstable with my business partner in July 2013 for the 1st time and we both really liked it. We thought it would be a good place for an investment property which both of our families could use when the work was done, and could also provide a small income as a holiday let. The house is in the perfect location for exploring Whitstable town and the surrounding coastal area and towns.
What makes this cottage unique
Our property is very close to the independent shops, good restaurants and pubs. You are able to wander about without having to use a car, unless you decide to go to Canterbury or any other near by town. When the tides out you can catch the swale, if your early enough!
You may decide to cook or not. There is an abundance of restaurants and casual eateries.

Lovely cottage, great location
Our five days in Whitstable were wonderful, not least because of this lovely cottage, stylish and comfortable, warm, in a great location, quiet yet very close to restaurants, shops, harbour and waterfront. The owners were very friendly and helpful. As other reviewers have pointed out the stairs to the top bedroom are quite narrow and steep, probably not suitable for everyone. The guest toilet on the ground floor is a definite plus if four guests are staying. Great use of space.The lovely little patio garden off the kitchen is private and surprisingly sunny. Highly recommended.
Luxury weekend in Whitstable
Perfect weekend break in this lovely cottage. We thought it was a stunning renovation, so well done and incorporating some clever touches. It is very stylish and well equipped but still feels cosy and comfortable. I also loved the garden design.
The location is perfect for shops, restaurants, harbour etc.
All pros and no cons. Would definitely recommend.
We had a lovely time staying in this cottage, which has been done up beautifully and with great attention to detail. The location is brilliant, being just off the high street. We really appreciated the late check out of mid day on Sunday, making a 2 night break more relaxing.
Just returned from a lovely week in Whitstable. The cottage was beautifully renovated to a very high standard. It has everything you could want from a holiday home and I have taken home a few style ideas for my own house! Our son just adored the attic bedroom but I think the bathroom was my favourite...
My wife and I have just spent a lovely weekend at this gorgeous seaside cottage in Whitstable, the owners Ann and Tim could not have been any more hospitable. We were even presented with an anniversary card on our arrival, the location could not have been more perfect with a short walk to the high street with plenty of independent shops and the harbour with the fresh catch of the day being sold straight off the boats.
The cottage has been modernised throughout keeping its seaside charm and both Ann and Tim should be very proud of their achievements, I have already been recommending this place to my friends and family and would have no hesitation returning myself
We stayed in this gorgeous cottage and absolutely loved it. It's just been renovated to a very high standard and is beautifully decorated and furnished. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need, including a coffee maker. The bathroom is super-luxurious and very spacious with a great shower (how often do you get that in a rental property?!) and, in addition, there's also a handy downstairs loo too. The whole house has a lovely feel to it, and is filled with light on every floor. There is also a beautiful wood-burning stove in the sitting room, although the weather was too warm for us to try it out. Both bedrooms are very comfortable - the twin bed on the top floor is reached by quite a steep staircase, but it's easily managed with a little care on the way back down. The garden is totally private and secure, so you can relax and let kids play safely out there. The cottage is just a minute away from Whitstable's lovely High Street with all its many shops and eateries, and the harbour and beach walks. All in all, this was an idyllic 'home from home' which would be equally lovely in winter, as well as summer. We were very impressed with the owners, who went out of their way to make the house look beautiful for our arrival with fresh flowers in the sitting room and heaps of lovely fluffy towels in the bathroom - everything was absolutely spotlessly clean.
We are very much looking forward to returning again soon.
