The Jolly is a light and sea-airy modern two bedroom cottage with off-road parking and a sunny enclosed garden. Each bedroom has a super comfy kingsize bed with upstairs family bathroom and downstairs cloakroom. A well equipped kitchen leads through to the spacious living room with Smart TV, DVD and iPod dock. Doors open onto a patio with seating, ice cooler and barbecue. Located on a peaceful private road, it's great for children and dogs and just a ten minute stroll from the beach and harbour. Our cottage's peaceful location on a private road with friendly neighbours makes it a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of the town centre, just ten minutes' walk away so you don't need a car once here. There's even a secret off-road walk to the beach which we reveal in our guest manual....The Jolly is a light and sea-airy modern two bedroom cottage with off-road parking and a sunny enclosed garden.

There’s a welcome pack for guests (and dogs), complimentary toiletries and of course WiFi. Whitstable is Kent's best-loved and most unique harbour town. Quaint and quirky, you'll find a huge range of pubs, bars, restaurants and coffee shops throughout its traditional high street and and maze of Victorian back roads. Criss-cross by historic alleyways from the bustling town to the beach; browsing dozens of independent local shops and tasty food outlets on your way. You'll have your own off-road parking space and it's a short walk into town. We are close to bus stops for Canterbury and Herne Bay, and a fifteen minute walk to Whitstable station for trains to London St Pancras & Victoria, Margate and London.

The Jolly at Whirstable - what a Jolly time!
Just returned from 3 nights at The Jolly and as always we are looking to book a return trip! It was a lovely break for New Year, first class accommodation, very clean and well furnished 2 bedroom house. Great location and within walking distance to the beach, harbour and a lovely walk into Tankerton on NY Day.

Cosy cottage with a homely feel, right near all amenities
The Jolly is a lovely clean, bright, modern cottage with a great little garden. Everything you need for self-catering has been thought of, right down to the dog's water bowl. The location is quiet, with restaurants, pubs and shops in town a short walk away. You can walk to the seafront in around 10 minutes. If birdwatching is your thing, head towards nearby Seasalter to spot wintering geese and other seabirds.

Perfect
The Jolly was the perfect holiday home. Everything we needed and lots of lovely extra touches. Absolutely spotlessly clean throughout. Lovely garden to sit out in. Really good location, nice 10 minute stroll into Whitstable town. Such a lovely feel to the place and the hosts are so friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

christmas magic
the jolly is by far the best property we have stayed at in whitstable. spotlessly clean, fresh and modern but still retaining that homely feel. the beds are so comfortable with crisp fragrant bed linen and a nice treat awaiting! our hosts annabel and ian were very acommodating, along with their delightful doggy teddy who was great with our eleven year old daughter. whitstable is the perfect place to spend a weekend or longer at anytime of the year. we spent a lovely evening at the harbour cafe where there was ice skating and a most jolly elf serving us. also saw a great band in the rock lodge and naturally finished the evening with a kebab on the short walk home. the jolly and whitstable are highly recommended and we will definitely be back soon.
