We will come back often.' – Review April 2017 DESCRIPTION; Beautiful 4 BEDROOM cottage with private courtyard located in the heart of Whitstable. Cormorant Cottage has recently been re-decorated throughout. The style of the cottage is in keeping with the quaint English seaside town and is perfect for friends, and families alike. Situated close to the town between Sea Street and the ever popular Harbour Street with its unique and vintage shops (voted 10th prettiest street in the country). Just a stones throw away (100 steps) from the beautiful Whitstable pebbled beach and famous Harbour. Spacious open plan lounge with a fully working Log burner (logs and kindle available at additional fee), and dining room leading to a courtyard (York stone) with Pergola, garden furniture and beautiful fairy lights. Fully equipped modern kitchen with Smeg and Dualit kitchen appliances. There is 1 bathroom with shower. FREE WIFI, SKY TV. There are 4 bedrooms; Sleeps 4 - 7; 2 x standard double beds, 1 x 4ft double bed, 1 x standard single bed. Guest comments 'extremely comfortable beds'. REVIEW “Fantastic property and holiday destination” 'Fantastic cottage in an unrivalled location - it's in the heart of everything but peaceful. The cottage was deceptively spacious with four large bedrooms (three with doubles, one with a single) and had everything we needed. We have stayed at a number of Whitstable properties previously and this has been our favourite. Cottage well suited to groups and families (we are a couple with one young child, a baby and had two grandparents with us). Lots to do in the area: - Dover Castle, Walmer Castle and Gardens and Wingham Wildlife Park where good days out for the kids (and adults!) and the play area next to Whitstable Castle was also very good - Lots of great shops, pubs and restaurants in Whitstable (Old Neptune, Pearson's Arms and Elliott's are our favourites) - The Sportsman in Seasalter and East Coast Dining Room in Tankerton well worth the visit for a top quality lunch or dinner.' - April 2017 REVIEW 'A truly lovely, well-appointed cottage. The perfect location only a minute from the beach and the shops. The whole family enjoyed our stay, the walks, swimming, crabbing and shopping kept us all happy. It's the perfect bolt hole. We are hoping to go back and stay here again very soon. The owner Paula could not have been more helpful. Highly highly recommended.' TRANSPORT No need for car as the cottage is located directly in the heart of Whitstable between the town and the beach. Train station 15mins walk away. Bus stop near by. REVIEW 'Best place we ever stayed at' 'Had a fantastic week at the house in spite of the rain .. house fantastic, perfect in fact including for our 2 teenagers well equipped spacious cosy great outdoor space ... nothing too much trouble for Paula she was great . Totally recommend it best place we have ever stated at !' LINEN & TOWELS Linen available and is included in the quote and booking fee. (Linen change throughout stay available with small additional charge for 4 nights + stay). Towels available at small charge - please advise us if you would like to hire towels. Highchair and Travel Cot available for use. No additional charge for winter heating. REVIEW 'Our family had a really lovely stay at Cormorant Cottage over the weekend. The cottage is spacious and beautifully decorated with lots of antique and seaside-y pieces. It's in a great location tucked away behind the high street and a few moments from the beach, but still quiet and peaceful. Paula met us on arrival and showed us around, and brought us logs for the log burner which we enjoyed using on our first night. I would highly recommend the cottage and would definitely stay there again. Thank you Paula!' PARKING There is no allocated parking due to the prime location of the cottage. There is off street parking (free) available via several of the roads that lead off of the town (all within walking distance of the cottage); Albert St Sydenham St Woodlawn ST Victory St Regent St Please feel free to contact me with any enquires / for more information.
