What makes this cottage unique

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.

Peaceful and charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Sherbet Cottage is a pretty and thoughtfully equipped cottage tucked away in a peaceful location just two minutes from the harbour. It's an extremely comfortable and immaculate cottage, with the added bonus of parking for one car, which is much sought-after in Whitstable. We had a very enjoyable week here, it made a wonderful base to explore Kent from, and the owners have thought of everything.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Sherbet Cottage is beautifully appointed and full of character; so well equipped I cannot think of anything more that could improve it. It is fantastically situated only a couple of hundred yards from the harbour and only a few mintues walk to the town centre and beaches. The parking space for the car made life so easy as off or on road parking in Whitstable can be difficult.

Beautiful, cosy cottage with all mod cons and great location

  • 5 of 5

The owners thought of everything, with lots of special touches (penny sweets, boats games and red wine!). They were really responsive when we thought the heating wasn't working, nothing was a problem. Would highly recommend.

Activity and Interests

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.
