Why Whitstable?

Whitstable town is very fashionable but family-orientated, and just has a really nice laid-back atmosphere.

Walk around the old part of the high street, and browse in some of the quirky little independently run shops.

You can pick up some nice little bits and bobs in one of the proper, traditional shops or galleries in the high street and elsewhere.

The harbour every weekend hosts a market, offering not just fish, but the work of local designers and artists.

The sea fronts are “must-sees” too.

Last but not least are the restaurants..... Famed throughout Kent and the U.K for its Oysters and fine eateries, this is a town well known for its culinary delights... or you may just want good old fish and chips sat on the beach watching the sun go down, whatever your mood, there is a restaurant to suit you.

A Short week in Oyster City!

  • 5 of 5

Oyster Bed Cottage is an appropriate name for the cottage we stayed in during our 5 nights in Whitstable as the holiday environment was dominated by the local Oysters and other foods from the sea. The cottage was well equipped and in the most perfect location for shops, restaurants, places to go and of course the beach.

Having a secure private car parking space was also a big plus although once parked up we didn't use the car again for 4 days. Everything in within a short walking distance from the cottage and it was perfect spot to begin longer beach side walks to other towns.

When we arrived we were met by our host with a warm welcome and introduction to the facilities. It was a great way to start our break.

Perfect space and well situated!

We had the most comfortable stay for my wife's 40th birthday weekend. We had two families of four staying here and not once did we feel we were on top of each other! What a fantastic cottage!

6 go to Whitstable

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice, bedrooms were large and airy, the kitchen was well supplied with crockery and cutlery, pans and pots and everything worked. Unfortunately the windows on the second floor were mainly unable to be opened. There was no clear information with regard to rubbish disposal and the overflow pipe developed an annoying drip onto the back decking.

However we enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely go again.
