castaway cottage

Stylish cottage perfect for friends and family



"We all enjoyed a fabulous Christmas at Castaway Cottage. It is just off Harbour Street, so you can walk everywhere easily and there are plenty of shops, so you do not need to go to the out of town supermarkets. The cottage appears small but there is plenty of space on three levels. It was lovely and warm and the wood burning stove made it so cosy in the evenings. We loved it." V Fewkes

"Really enjoyed our stay during October half-term; 2 adults + 2 teenage cousins. Comfortable well-equipped 'Castaway Cottage' in good side-street location. Whitstable charming seaside town; good base for walking in Kent countryside (e.g. 'the Blean') & cycling(e.g. 'Crab & Winkle way 'to Canterbury)." Griffiths family
"My wife and I and 2 daughters and our granddaughter have just spent the most delightful week in Castaway Cottage - spacious, well maintained with all appropriate facilities - and a mere 3 minutes to the centre of an absolutely wonderful town. You really don't need a car as there are lots of great walks from the town, both east and west and a really good bus service if you want to venture further afield. Castaway Cottage provided a terrific base and we had a super time there." M Parsons
