Whitstable is fantastic: it’s full of independent shops; lots of amazing bars and restaurants; it also has a thriving artist community so there are some lovely galleries and as a consequence the town has a lovely arty vibe to it! Obviously the seaside is a big attraction and just strolling along the beachfront is a lovely way to spend the day.
The train station is about a 10 minute walk from the cottage. Once you’re in Whitstable most things are a about a 5 min walk away from the cottage which is in an amazing location – less than 5 mins away from the beach, shops and bars.
There is parking outside the cottage but in the busy summer months guests may have to park in a nearby street. However, because the street is a no through road guests will be able to unload their car just out side the cottage and then park it nearby. As the cottage is so centrally located and everything is so close by, guest shouldn’t need their cars until they leave.
this is a great house in a great location.
if your coming down for a w/e or a week this is place has everything you need.
it looks amazing and is nice and tidy with comfy beds & towels all ready for you.
great stay and 100% recommended.

We had a lovely family stay at the cottage. There was 6 of us and more than enough room. The kitchen had good facilities and the house was clean. The style and decor I just loved, it is quirky and really shabby chic I just love it!!! All the rooms are gorgeous and have towels. The location is amazing the beach is just behind the street. It is so quiet and peaceful.

We have just spent the weekend at The Cook’s Cottage and have had a lovely stay. The cottage is beautifully and thoughtfully furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. The bath was particularly deep and delightful! And it was nice to have the real fire in the dining room too. The location of the cottage couldn’t be better – right off harbour street, but it wasn’t noisy, so just perfect for getting to the various shops and restaurants and just minutes from the sea too.
