Adorable Whitstable Cottage sleeping up to 4 guests
In a quiet residential area, yet only a short distance from Whitstable’s centre, this house is a great base for a holiday along the coast.
This semi-detached house is ideally located in a quiet residential area on the outskirts of Whitstable. Bring your bikes and cycle into the town, drive or catch the bus down to the harbour where they land the world famous Whitstable oysters. Here, as in many English seaside resorts during Napoleonic times, the smugglers once ruled. Stashing away their contraband, which included an illegal trade in tobacco and spirits, they then used the plethora of alley ways, including ’Squeeze Gut Alley’ (take a look and you will see how it got its name!), as escape routes. Hire a bike if you don’t have one and then cycle the Crab Winkle Way, which is almost 7 miles of traffic free route along the old disused railway line to Canterbury. The trail is also also suitable for children.
Whitstable has a vibrant, contemporary arts scene, and worth a visit is the Whitstable Museum and Gallery, home to touring and permanent exhibitions. On a bright and sunny day, head towards the beach or stroll towards Tankerton Slopes, which is dotted with little wooden beach huts on the grassy banks that slope towards the shingle. Nature lovers can visit Blean Woods Nature Reserve and the Wildwood Discovery Park, and no trip to the area would be complete without exploring the historic city of Canterbury with its magnificent cathedral. Golf and fishing can also be found locally, and there are good road and rail connections to the surrounding area. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
