Victoria Cottage is an attractive and comfortable 2- bedroom Georgian terraced house in a quiet street in the Conservation Area of the unique Kentish seaside town of Whitstable, only minutes from the beach.

The cottage has a fresh and welcoming feel and you will relax into your holiday as soon as you open the pretty powder blue front door. Furnished with all you need for a holiday by the seaside, the cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine, and a relaxing sitting room with electric woodburner and two comfortable sofas, one converting to a double bed, adjoining a dining room with pretty glass topped table and wrought iron chairs, seating six. Upstairs there is a sunny double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a large family bathroom which looks out over the garden; stairs lead up to the delightful attic bedroom with twin beds, a carpeted 'den' area and extensive views of Whitstable. The delightful and secluded cottage garden is full of colourful plants, with a wrought iron table and chairs and a barbecue for long meals on balmy summer days. Following the brick path to the garden gate leads to a gravelled private parking space. A useful wooden bench stores a selection of beach toys and extra deck chairs. A short stroll from the cottage takes you to the fascinating mix of shops, restaurants and pubs in Harbour Street – a minute more and you are on the beach, with the interesting bustle of the yacht club and the harbour to your right and the endless groynes, pebbles and sand of West Beach to your left. A few minutes' walk along West Beach will take you to one of the few pubs in England at the sea's edge, the blue and white Old Neptune, and a walk beyond the pub passes rows of pretty terraced houses and then picturesque, multi-coloured beach huts. There are lovely walks and cycles in both directions, and you can go as far as the Faversham Creeks or beyond Herne Bay towards Reculver and Birchington. Whitstable itself, with the nearby cathedral city of Canterbury and quaint old brewing town of Faversham, forms the East Kent Triangle, covering an almost unique area of culinary excellence which includes such delights as the renowned restaurant near the beach in Seasalter, the Sportsman, and two fabulous food markets: The Goods Shed in Canterbury and Macknade Fine Foods in Faversham. Whitstable boasts a number of excellent restaurants serving fresh, local produce including Wheeler's Oyster Bar, established in 1856, Williams & Brown serving Spanish tapas, and JoJo's which has had rave reviews for mezes from all over the Med. The Continental Hotel and the Samphire Restaurant are both renowned locally for their food and Pizza Express, Prezzo and Zizzi's are all within easy reach, as well as a number of pubs serving a variety of beers and often featuring live music. Facilities Central heating, electric woodburner, linen & towels, DAB clock radio with iPod docking station, television with DVD player, books, games and jigsaw puzzles, kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, iron and ironing board, travel cot, blow-up bed, bedside clock radios, downstairs cloakroom with loo, walk-in shower, shower over full-size bath, cottage garden with wrought iron table & chairs, BBQ and parking at rear for one small or medium size car. Welcome pack, including bottle of wine, on arrival. Activities nearby Beach, Watersports, Sea Fishing, Golf Course, Horse Riding, Tennis Courts, Walking, Cycling, Indoor and Outdoor Swimming Pools, Ten-Pin Bowling, Sports Centre. Museums, Art Galleries, Theatres, Cinemas, Exhibitions, Brewery Tours. The fascinating cathedral city of Canterbury is only 8 miles away and there plenty of buses. There is plenty to see and do, including three World Heritage listed sites: the Cathedral, St Martin's Church and St Augustine's Abbey; the Canterbury Tales exhibition, which brings Chaucer's Tales to life, Canterbury Castle and the City Walls, Dane John Gardens and the Roman mound, and also four fascinating museums. For light relief, there is plenty of variety in the old and new shopping areas. A trip to Faversham, 9 miles to the west, is well worth it. The town has its own unique period atmosphere and boasts one of England's finest medieval walkways, Abbey Street. With over 500 listed houses and England's oldest brewery, Shepherd Neame have been brewing here since 1698, there is plenty to see. A little further afield is Margate, with its pretty Old Town and the starkly modern Turner Gallery on the harbour, as well as other seaside towns such as Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Deal, Walmer and the pretty former port of Sandwich, one of the five Cinque Ports, but now 2 miles from the sea!

Please be aware that this was nothing to do with me, the owner. I was not made aware of this 'booking' and had no involvement. Please take up your issue with the third party. Thank you.
