captain's cottage

Charming cottage perfect for a couple or family

We returned to Captains Cottage for the second time this year. The whole family loved it just as much as the first time being so near the beach and town but also quiet enough to feel like home from home. We love the little touches in the house that make staying there feel a treat and we highly recommend Whitstable as a perfect family holiday location. We always pop into Canterbury for great shops and magnificent Cathedral but we also like days roller skating at the harbour or watching the sun go down with a glass of wine in hand - just lovely. The staff at WHH are so friendly and helpful - we will definitely be using them again. Thank you so much! Another one for the family album.
