“Lovely cottage, plenty of character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed here last Christmas and loved it so much we returned! The cottage is warm and comfortable and everything is provided for the perfect holiday. Whitstable is a real gem of a place and is surrounded by other lovely places such as Canterbury and Broadstairs. We loved our time here and look forward to returning.

“LOVELY STAY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

The house is stunning, perfect location for the town and harbour. The only reason I have not given a 5* is because there is only room for 2 people to really relax in the living room. But other than that, the place is stunning. Bedrooms are amazing and I have to agree with the previous reviews, the beds are SO comfortable. Everything was very fresh and clean. Not one complaint. I would recommend staying here.

“Amazing cottage with cosy fire and comfortable beds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Fantastic location - right off the main drag and a few minutes walk from the beach.
The cottage has a welcoming downstairs with TWO fireplaces and a comfy sofa with huge tv.
But we were so busy the tv barely went on!
the kitchen is well equipped with thoughtful things like bin bags, cling film, kitchen foil et - all the things that make you feel like you are at home
The lighting is great in the flat which really made a difference to cosy evenings in by the fire (they supply logs but best to bring kindling with you).
We brought our well behaved dog and she loved the few days we spent here - running on the beach and chilling with us in the living room
The stairs to upstairs are steep so not great for really young people but our kids loved it.
Handover was easy with Jilly and there were plenty of clean sheets and towels.
All in all a very memorable and enjoyable stay - we will be back!

“Ideal Base for Whitstable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I stayed with my two young babies whilst I visited friends and explored Whitstable. Well stocked with all you'd need, the beds were incredibly comfortable and the living space leant itself to both cosy evenings and entertaining. The stairs are very steep and perhaps not suitable for those who might find that difficult - I didn't quite manage to carry both babies at the same time as I would at home but I soon got used to taking them up and down one at a time.

The property is ideally located with the main street of Whitstable just seconds away with plenty of shops and places to eat out (do try Waltshaw's Deli for lunch or Kentish delights to take away) and the beach not much further.
I will be booking again.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Cottage is fabulous, clean and very well appointed with a cosy seaside feel. Having never visited Whitstable before we were very impressed with the town and its shops and restaurants. The beach is excellent and child friendly, fortunately the weather was good enough for us to enjoy two days on the beach.
Fish and chips from VC Jones is a must...!!!!

“Beautiful and comfortable cottage in excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a very relaxing week at 11 Albert Street - it is light, spacious and beautifully decorated and we slept very well. The secluded garden was a lovely spot for breakfast or barbecues and the location meant we were never far from the beach or shops yet far enough for some peace and quiet. The stairs were a little steep and as with all old cottages there was the occasional creak and some noise through the walls but not enough to disturb us. All in all it was a pleasant place to call home for a while and we would definitely stay here again.
