If you want to stay and not use your car again in Whitstable then this house for you. You can walk to the shops on the high street in under a minuet and the beach takes maybe 2 minutes.

When we arrived we were met by the owner and shown round the house, which is a good size for the six people who stayed there. All the bedrooms are of a large size and two large bathrooms also, one en-suite. The down stair toilet is perfect when you have younger children in the house. We put the grandparents in the top bedroom and they couldn't hear the young children when they were up during the night, perfect for them!!! The kitchen was fully equipped for the 2 week stay we had and had everything you needed including a dish washer. There is also a washing machine but no dryer. There was a clothes horse which we used outside. We did buy and leave some plastic dishes which we used for the young children just in case anything got broke.

The house was clean and all bedding was clean with the mattresses on the beds all of good quality and very comfortable. All rooms have TVs except the little single room.

Jodie left a few leaflets with place of interest in the area for us and the house had wi-fi and a secured parking space. We found this place as a perfect holiday home for people of all ages due to the location and the house just being perfect.

“Perfect stay.”
Reviewed January 28, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Highly recommend Oyster Bed Cottage. Stayed with friends for one night celebrating a birthday. From the moment we arrived greeted by the owner Jodie it felt so homely and welcoming. Beautiful interior and spacious. Fully equipped kitchen and lovely bedrooms. So pleased we found this special place to stay...... Did not want to leave!
Hope to return one day soon in the future. Ideal location, close to the beach and High Street.
Great communication from Jodie. Many thanks.

“Long weekend break”
Reviewed October 15, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A great property, tastefully furnished with all homely touches and a fully equipped kitchen. Spacious bathrooms, large bedrooms with all home comforts. The property couldn't be located in a better place, just off the high street, centrally located to pubs, bistros and the coast behind. A very happy and enjoyable weekend had by 7 adults, a recommended stay.

“Great house, fabulous location”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We found the house to be perfect for our needs. It was spacious and well kitted-out and best of all the location was brilliant - within the town and only a few minutes walk to the beach.

The owner was very accommodating and let us check in early, and she has great taste as the interior design of the place is beautiful.

Only slight criticism would be that it could have done with a "deep clean" but that was probably owing to the quick turnaround and the fact we were able to check in early.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

“Spacious and well appointed”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

Lovely spacious property situated literally a minute's walk from the high street and a few minutes away from the beach. The bedrooms are light and airy with plenty of storage space and the beds are very comfortable. Modern bathroom with a fantastic shower and kitchen with plenty of utensils and equipment to use. The cottage has a lovely homely feel, is very clean and well equipped and ideally situated for all the amenities that Whitstable offers. From the enquiring stage, booking and eventually staying at the cottage, Jodie the owner has been very helpful and welcoming and I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to stay in Whitstable.

“Beautiful cottage in ideal location”
Reviewed May 26, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This property has been beautifully decorated and is a great base for staying in Whitstable. Jodie the owner replied promptly to all enquiries and was very helpful in providing information about the area and allowing us flexibility on the check in and out times. The rooms are very spacious and the house is stocked with everything you need. It really felt like a home away from home and I would recommend this to families, couples and groups. The seafront is 1 minute walk away and there is a parking space at the back of the cottage, which is very handy! This really is an ideal place to stay.
