Coastguard's cottage

Fabulous seaside holiday home

This was a new cottage for us, and we were absolutely delighted with it. It is in a great location and with 2 parking spaces, pretty rare for Whitstable. A lovely cottage with a bit of history, as it is an old coastguard’s cottage, nicely decorated, furnished and equipped, with a wet room as well as a bathroom. Just the right size for 5, with a nice shady courtyard garden and a small decked space looking right onto the tennis courts. We particularly liked the little cubby hole off the sea-facing bedroom called The Lookout, complete with chair and binoculars for looking out to sea. The owner left us flowers, wine, cakes and pale green eggs from her own hens! We had a brilliant week there and want to go again next year.
