Quite simply, Whitstable is unlike any other town you will visit by the sea and it manages to offer something for everyone. It is best known for its native oysters and its annual Whitstable Oyster Festival but it also benefits from a strong arts culture embodied by the numerous independent Whitstable galleries and craft shops and has a rich maritime history. Whitstable boasts spectacular sunsets and miles of beaches and its distinctive character and ambience is all within easy reach of the city (60 miles east of London).

As you're by the sea, why not take a beginners course in sailing, windsurfing or kitesurfing? Whitstable has excellent conditions for water sports and Whitstable Yacht Club is a good place to start. If you are looking to buy suitable clothing and accessories for anything and everything marine related, there's no better place to go than the Dinghy Store. Whitstable Marine just next door, can provide everything from kayaks to water-ski equipment.

An excellent cottage: we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a lovely place to stay and we hope to return. It is ideally situated five minutes from the beaches and the main shopping streets.

The cottage was furnished, equipped and decorated to a very high standard. There are just a few points to be made. The door knobs on the two double bedrooms came off when touched. Our son-in-law was concerned that the sitting-room blind should have safety cords to prevent young children getting the cords round their necks. We did not leave the children, aged 3 and 5 unsupervised but it would be sensible to fit safety cords (fastened at the bottom of the window as well as the top). Also we would have liked to have been able to lock the window in the twin room so that the children could not open it from the inside. Some advice on food waste and recycling would be helpful.

The cottage is truly excellent - the best we have rented in recent years. Sheets, towels, pans and crockery are all of high quality.

Thanks to the owners for an ideal place to stay.

Great location and very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fabulous week at this delightful cottage and would certainly recommend it to friends. It is ideally situated close to the high street and sea front and the rooms are all very generous and beautifully presented. The kitchen is among the best equipped we have come across and the jars of sweets in the front room are a nice touch. We'll be back
