Lovely Family Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 recently stayed at Oyster Bed Cottage.

The location is great as everything is on your doorstep, beach, restaurants and shops.

The bedrooms had the "wow factor"

Jodie was a very responsive and helpful host

Will be booking again.

Family wedding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend for a family wedding at East Beach. We were a party of 6 adults, one child and 2 babies. The house was extremely comfortable and supplied everything we needed. It is right in the centre of the town with all amenities on the doorstep.

A very comfortable house, well positioned only a short walk to Whitstable's many attractions.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay, for a family wedding, was too short but the house provided all the facilities we needed for a family group of 5 adults and three young children. The house was clean, well furnished and very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay.

Could not of found a more perfect place for our weekend stay. The cottage was beautiful, spacious, and the beds were luxurious! Could not fault it in anyway. Perfect location for the high street and the beach. So many good options of places to eat or drink. We did not want to leave! Cant wait to come back and stay again!!

A lovely relaxing stay close to everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house located close to the high street and seafront. We visited whitstable as a group of friends, and 1 child. The bedrooms are a really good size and decorated really nicely. The kitchen had everything in it you would need. We ate out in local restaurants and then on one of the evenings bought some cheese from the cheese shop on the high street and stayed in. We would definitely stay here again.

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.
