About the property

Cottage in Whitstable, Kent, England - Great location, less than 5 minutes from the beach and harbour

We took 6 months to renovate the house and it has quality fixtures and fittings with under floor heating to the ground floor. Large master bathroom, and comes fully fitted throughout with beautiful furniture and antiques. It is positioned very close to Harbour street with its array of shops and restaurants and is also very close for a stroll through the harbour and along the beach. All facilities are right there on your doorstep, and with festivals at different times of year, there is much to enjoy!


Parking is on the street and there is a cheap car park very close.

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 Whitstable

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.

10 star accommodation.. the property is a side street of the high street. Park your car & leave it

  • 5 of 5

An amazing cottage a stones through from high street . A side street so park your car and leave it till you drive home.. Whistabe is a lovely town from the cottage your so close to high street, harbour, beach restaurants etc..all within a two minute walk... The cottage has everything you need more than a home from home..The garden is very private and a reall sun trap.,

Also so easy to get the bus to Canterbury from high street which is well worth a visit 20mins on bus..

The host was so helpful before and after our stay and made the hole experience so enjoyable and an easy transaction.. Can't fault anything and we will definitely be returning

Stylish and comfortable, perfectly situated in Whitstable

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is beautifully appointed - Tim and Ann-Marie have renovated it to a quality standard and finish. It is very comfortable, beautifully and tastefully furnished and perfectly situated in the residential area, just 2 mins walk from the high street, harbour and all they have to offer in the way of pubs and restaurants. In addition, it is only 5 mins from Whitstable beach.

The courtyard garden is a real sun trap - a perfect way to start the morning by having breakfast out there, and also pre or post-dinner drinks. Couldn't ask for a better way to start/finish the day

The cottage was the foundation and base for a wonderful long weekend in Whitstable - how I wish I was back there now.

Tim and Ann-Marie are great hosts and I cannot thank them enough for agreeing to rent the cottage to me. I do hope to be back there sometime soon.

Clean and delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very well located, it was left in a clean and comfortable state in every room. Booking directly with the owner was straightforeward and safe who made me feel very welcome.

Pros: - location is excellent

- Has every amenity necessary for a young family

- clean and comfortable

- excellent family bathroom

- lovely garden with furniture

- blinds in every room were perfect

There were just a couple of minor issues that we had as there was no duvet but many blankets provided for the double bed and a very narrow staircase to 2nd bedroom.

Apart from that the cottage was perfect and we will be looking to re-book for future visits.

Many thanks Anne!

Owner's Response: Hi Vish, thanks for the review and we are pleased that you like our house, the choice of blankets over duvet is purely personal as we felt providing blankets and sheets which get washed after each visitor was a more hygienic way to carry things out, the staircase to the 2nd floor is original and typical of these fishermens cottages Regards Tim Wood

Lovely cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

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.
