Holiday Rental House
The cottage is an old rustic fisherman's cottage with 3 double bedrooms & two bathrooms (one of which is upstairs) across 3 floors, with a lovely courtyard garden, and it is about 30 secs from the lovely independent shops and restaurants of Whitstable and 2 mins from the sea & beach! The interior is filled with a quirky mix of vintage & french boho furniture and there are the original wooden floorboards throughout the cottage. The sitting room has two large, comfy chesterfield sofas that will seat 6 people easily and the adjacent dining room has a dining room table which seats 6 people easily and there is also a lovely large real open fire for cosy winter nights! Dogs are welcome to stay. (We have two rescue dogs although - they and us - obviously won't be there during your stay.)

This unique cottage is packed with lots of interesting one off antiques, has a shabby chic decor and is full of rustic charm. The cottage has a lovely walled garden with beautiful rose bushes and home grown herbs as well as a French table and chairs for at least 8 people dining outside ; there's a sitting room with two chesterfield sofas which seats at least six people comfortably; the dining room has a real open log fire and a dining table & chairs that seats 6 people; the downstairs bathroom with the original cast iron roll top bath and there is also a more modern shower room upstairs; each of the three double bedrooms have antique double beds and Egyptian cotton sheets; plus there's an amazing bespoke gallery kitchen with hand -made wooden worktops a range cooker, smeg fridge freezer, and a full complement of pots, pans and utensils. There are also wooden floors and old school radiators throughout the cottage. NB: please note that like all fisherman cottages in Whitstable the stairs are very steep and aren't suitable for those people who have mobility issues. More

The Cooks Cottage was a beautiful place to stay, it had everything we needed and was fantastically positioned within Whitstable. House was very clean and homely, with a lovely garden which was completely secure for our dogs. We definitely intend on visiting again next year.
