“Amazing cottage with cosy fire and comfortable beds”
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”
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”
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”
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.

“Prime location and a real home from home”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This cottage is really well presented with lots of nice touches. The beds were so comfortable it was an effort to get out of them. Location put you right in the centre of everything and the high street is lovely with lots of great shops and restaurants. We will definitely be coming back

“most comfortable beds ever!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We were looking for a last minute short break for my mum's 60th birthday with my immediate family. The owners were very accomodating with all of my queries and we found Julie the keyholder to be equally friendly.
Whitstable was freezing so the two open fires downstairs were well received, we could have done with more kindling as the larger logs and papers didn't get much of a roar going but it was a hugely windy weekend.
The bedrooms are lovely and it was handy to have the option of splitting on of the doubles into a twin. We used this room for my son. The cottage is in a great central location and we are hoping to come back in the summer

“Fantastic holiday”

A lovely cottage, clean, well equipped with some thoughtful touches such as tea, coffee, biscuits and flowers. There was no need to bring anything except clothes and personal belongings as everything was supplied.

Although a small place they have decorated it to the highest quality and it has a roomy feel with bathrooms upstairs and downstairs which was excellent for my elderly father.

The position of the cottage also ideal with all amenities just 2 minutes away. We will return!
