Everything you could need in self catering, plenty of restaurants nearby.
Would recommend to anyone. My first visit to this town since 1980, it has prospered since the oysters became much more plentiful.
I would say that parking particularly on a Friday/Saturday.
Transport links god however.
I booked The Bakehouse for a two-night weekend break knowing nothing about Whitstable. The Bakehouse was perfectly situated right in the middle of town, with plenty of pubs, bars, restaurants and activities within a few minutes walk.
Virginia was really flexible with timings, key pick up etc and provided some really helpful tips for things to do.
The accommodation was extremely well equipped, a high-standard, I can't think of anything that would improve it. I'd definitely book again when I'm back in town, highly recommended.
The place is right in the middle of Whitstable and yet hidden away far enough from any noise and the slightly hectic nature of the busy seaside town. It is very tidy and well equipped. Virginia was easy to communicate with and very helpful. All in all, very good.
The location of The Bakehouse is superb, tucked away just off the high street it meant that we could reach the beach, shops, pubs and restaurants in seconds and most importantly didn't have to get a cab home! Even though it's in the middle of things it feels very secluded there and peaceful too. My only complaint was that the wifi didn't have a strong enough signal. Other than that I must say the owner Virginia bent over backwards to help me with recommendations and my partner and I had two memorable meals out, one at JoJos in Herne Bay and one at Samphire. The bakehouse has a lovely private deck and I am only sorry it was too chilly to eat outside. However, we were very happy cooking fresh scallops indoors. The kitchen is well equipped for self-catering. I liked the nautical themed soft furnishings which all felt very fresh and modern and the the bed was very comfy. All in all a perfect weekend getaway!
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary weekend and had a lovely time. The accommodation is clean, modern, comfortable and in a great location.
Champs Bakery (which is right next to the property) is great for breakfast/lunch.
The property is right near a bus stop which goes to Canterbury or Herne Bay so we didn't use our car at a whilst away.
The host is friendly, helpful and really quick to respond to any questions.
All in all just fab, which is why I gave 5 *
My boyfriend and I booked the Bakehouse as a last minute weekend away. Before arriving, Virginia gave us clear directions, recommendations of where to go/eat in Whistable and information about checking in and out - a great host! The Bakehouse was extremely clean, well-equipped and in a great location- just a couple of minutes walk away from both the beach and the high street. Perfect for a couple's short getaway. Would definitely recommend to a friend, and might even return in the summer! (Would also recommend Samphire, a restaurant just a along the high street!)
We stayed at the Bakehouse between Christmas and NYE.
Loved the Bakehouse. Had a big , comfortable bed, two sofas to relax on and everything you'd want in a home away from home.
There is a great Wetherspoons( a sentence I never thought I'd write) opposite. We ate at Samphire, Wheelers and the Pearsons Arms. Chocolate pudding at Wheelers still has me licking my lips!
We will be back to Whitstable - and aim to stay at the Bakehouse again.
