We fell in love Whitstable after staying in this beautiful coastal town during 2013. We enjoy wandering through the quaint high street, with it's independent shops and fantastic restaurants.

We bought Sherbet Cottage in 2013. The location of the cottage is perfect, 2 minutes walk to the harbour, beach and high street. With it's own parking space at the cottage, this relieves any parking stress during high season.

Great stay in a great cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend here. The cottage is clean and cosy - a great place to relax after a day at the seaside. Arrival and key collection was easy and smooth. The house was in great condition when we arrived and the owner was happy to accommodate our request for a late checkout. All in all a great experience!

So perfect we'd move to Whitstable for good!

  • 5 of 5

Sherbert cottage is immaculate, everything is perfect from gorgeous bed linen to lovely soft towels and hair dryers in each room. There were even lovely candles we could light to make it feel even better in the evening. We stayed here as we were getting married at East Quay Venue and it was perfect, I left the house and walked to my wedding feeling simply wonderful. The quality of Sherbet cottage coupled with the location make it perfect. Massive thank you for making the best weekend of our lives even better.

Lovely Property in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Sherbet Cottage is in a perfect location to access the best of Whitstable. The house itself is well appointed but the one small bathroom could cause difficulties if there was the maximum number of guests staying. We were only 3, so it was fine.

Having a parking space in Whitstable is an essential and so much appreciated, although be warned - if you have a large vehicle the access route was double parked and proved to be a tight squeeze!

Lovely cottage, great host & location, well kitted out

  • 5 of 5

The whole process of booking and contact with Michelle for our stay was very hassle free. The cottage itself is in a great location, close to everything but lovely and quiet at night. The garden is lovely, a real sun trap in the mornings. Inside the cottage is kitted out with everything you could possibly need, including stuff for the beach. Beds are comfortable, all linens very high quality, thank you for a wonderful place to stay.

Beautiful cottage, immaculately clean and thoughtfully furnished

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful cottage, beautifully decorated and furnished, with everything you could possibly need. Our children loved the sweetshop - a very thoughtful and popular addition. Perfectly positioned for walking to the town and harbour. We had a wonderful time despite the appalling weather and would love to revisit Sherbert Cottage when the sun is shining! Thank you.

Location

Special interest holidays:

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.

Coast/Beach:

Walking distance to the harbour and beach.

Travel:

Whitstable has a direct fast train service from London which takes just over an hour, there are services from train stations including Victoria and St. Pancras.

Travelling to Whitstable by road is also easy with the M2 motorway only moments away from the town.
