“Excellent”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Cottage is fabulous, clean and very well appointed with a cosy seaside feel. Having never visited Whitstable before we were very impressed with the town and its shops and restaurants. The beach is excellent and child friendly, fortunately the weather was good enough for us to enjoy two days on the beach.
Fish and chips from VC Jones is a must...!!!!

“Beautiful and comfortable cottage in excellent location”
Reviewed 23 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a very relaxing week at 11 Albert Street - it is light, spacious and beautifully decorated and we slept very well. The secluded garden was a lovely spot for breakfast or barbecues and the location meant we were never far from the beach or shops yet far enough for some peace and quiet. The stairs were a little steep and as with all old cottages there was the occasional creak and some noise through the walls but not enough to disturb us. All in all it was a pleasant place to call home for a while and we would definitely stay here again.

“Prime location and a real home from home”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This cottage is really well presented with lots of nice touches. The beds were so comfortable it was an effort to get out of them. Location put you right in the centre of everything and the high street is lovely with lots of great shops and restaurants. We will definitely be coming back

“most comfortable beds ever!”
Reviewed 27 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We were looking for a last minute short break for my mum's 60th birthday with my immediate family. The owners were very accomodating with all of my queries and we found Julie the keyholder to be equally friendly.
Whitstable was freezing so the two open fires downstairs were well received, we could have done with more kindling as the larger logs and papers didn't get much of a roar going but it was a hugely windy weekend.
The bedrooms are lovely and it was handy to have the option of splitting on of the doubles into a twin. We used this room for my son. The cottage is in a great central location and we are hoping to come back in the summer

“Fantastic holiday”

A lovely cottage, clean, well equipped with some thoughtful touches such as tea, coffee, biscuits and flowers. There was no need to bring anything except clothes and personal belongings as everything was supplied.

Although a small place they have decorated it to the highest quality and it has a roomy feel with bathrooms upstairs and downstairs which was excellent for my elderly father.

The position of the cottage also ideal with all amenities just 2 minutes away. We will return!

“All you could want, and more...”
Reviewed 20 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This is a lovely property, very well managed and welcoming. Lots of little extras such as milk in the fridge and a warm welcome from Julie all add to the charm of the cottage. It is very well equipped and clean also included WiFi/ Internet etc. I took a small dog with me who fitted in fine and slept in the kitchen really happily.
I know Whitstable well since my mother in law lives there so I was lucky to leave the car on her drive, however if you find it dificult to park in Albert Street the car park opposite isn't expensive for unloading and short periods and is free overnight. Otherwise a short walk away Nelson Road often has spare spaces on the road.
Whitstable has lots of old world charm and original shops as well as a good choice of modern eateries and clothing/ gift/ arty shops. Best thing is you can walk everywhere and many shops/pubs/ restaurants were surprisingly welcoming to dogs! Talking of which there are loads of great walks along the beaches and in Blean Woods.
All in all a great break away, we really didn't want to come back to the city. I will definitely book again.
