Old Tar Cottage is a spacious and comfortable 3 bedroom seaside home. Located on Sea Wall and just a stone's throw from the beach, you are perfectly placed to enjoy the best Whitstable has to offer.

The cottage is accessed from the road by steps down to the front door. There is a small but charming courtyard garden with seating at the front of the cottage.

Ground Floor:

There is a large split level L-shaped open planned lounge, dining area and kitchen on the ground floor. The lounge area has a 2 seater sofa and 2 large comfy occasional chairs. There is a TV, DVD Player and woodburning stove. 

The modern kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, double oven and hob and microwave and there is an extendable dining table with 6 chairs.

The sun room area in the bottom section of the room is the perfect place for the kids crash or play. It has a 3 seater sofa and bean bags.

There is also a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as a shower cubicle and separate downstairs toilet.  You can access the downstairs shower and toilet directly from the outside, which is perfect if coming off the beach wet and in need of a shower!

The downstairs bedroom is spacious and has a double bed, chest of drawers, bedside cabinet and peg rail for hanging clothes.

First Floor:
The spacious master bedroom has a double bed, bedside table, chest of drawers and built in wardrobe.

There is a spacious twin bedroom with two standard single beds and chest of drawers.

The bathroom has twin basins, a bath with overhead mixer tap shower as well as a separate shower cubicle and toilet.

The cottage does not have a rear garden but you can enjoy a sundowner in the front courtyard or ideally on the beach which is a few steps from the front door!

You can off load your luggage outside the property, however parking is either free on street in the back streets off Harbour Street (10 minute walk) or in the large car park opposite the harbour (10 minutes walk).

An excellent long week-end at Old Tar Cottage. We stayed at Old Tar Cottage on the cold, snowy first week-end in March! When the booking was made we received very helpful advice on the properties best suited to our party of 5 adults and an 18 month old baby. In the week leading up to the stay when snow, ice and traffic conditions made a stay look unlikely we received sympathy and understanding from the company and were offered alternative dates if needed. When we managed to arrive we had an excellent weekend. The accommodation was excellent. It was very comfortable and clean and, considering how early it was in the season, the heating and wood burning stove turned it into a cosy, comfortable home from home. The kitchen was well equipped and the various seating areas provided ample opportunity for social conviviality. Added to this the pleasure of sea front walks and the town of Whitstable itself we had a thoroughly enjoyable long week-end.
