About the property

Two bedroom and bathroom livingroom and kitchen. Out door dining area and garden

Crab cottage is a traditional Kent weather-boarded house built in the 1820s by one of the Whitstable shipyards and has been variously used by shipwrights, fishermen and divers. It is part of a Georgian terrace of 5 houses, each slightly different and original in design and located on the edge of the beguiling maritime town, with its working harbour, fishermen’s huts sailing barges and yawls.

It is a small, bijou sized cottage suitable for a small family. There is a garden to both the front and back of the property with views over the Whitstable and Sea Salter Golf Club.

Whitstable is a well known sea side town in North Kent, with a working harbour, a shingle beach a bustling high street and is renowned for its sea-food and oysters.

Crab Cottage is just two minutes walk from the beach and ten minutes stroll from the High Street and harbour with its ever expanding range of traditional shops- and a bracing walk along the beach to the Michelin starred Sportsman, in Seasalter.

Whitstable is just over an hour’s drive from central London (or just under 90 min by train from Victoria or St Pancras International) and Crab cottage is situated on Island Wall with an open aspect to the old sea wall at the front and views over the Whitstable and Seasalter Golf club just beyond the well-sized back garden.

Other Activities: Boat trips

Golf: There is a golf course at the end of the cottage garden
