The interiors are full of Victorian character, all fully refreshed following recent full renovation, but with a modern twist. There is a newly extended kitchen/diner with breakfast bar and two sets of French doors leading out to the patio - a great space for entertaining with seating for up to 8 guests plus high chair. There are 2 double bedrooms and 2 with twin beds that can also be made up as double rooms, all with king-sized beds. There are also 2 bathrooms, both with rolltop baths and shower facilities. In the evenings you can choose between 2 cosy lounges: the snug is open plan to the kitchen and offers seating for 4 guests, an AGA woodburner and TV/DVD. Next door, at the front of the house, is the lounge with seating for 5, a feature fireplace and larger TV/DVD. Outside there is the all-important parking space for 1 car, a small secure garden with lawn and borders, patio dining area and access to the garden room. There is seating for 8 guests, tables and parasol, Weber BBQ and deckchair. The garden room offers further space to relax with a daybed and large leather beanbag.

About the neighbourhood
Just 7 miles from Canterbury on the northeast coast of Kent, Whitstable has become one of the most popular seaside destinations in the UK. Appealing to visitors of all ages, it's easy to see why - the beach, shops, restaurants, range of activities on offer and annual events like the renowned Oyster Festival held in July. Heron House is ideally situated on Nelson Road, right at the heart of the town and just a short walk to the beach and the high street. For keen golfers, why not enjoy a round of golf at the Whitstable & Seasalter Golf Club, a few meters from our back gate? There's all sorts of other activities on offer on the Whitstable waterfront, including tennis courts and sailing club... or enjoy a dip in the sea or a picnic on the beach. Within easy walking distance is the town's...
How to get there
Whitstable is easily accessible by train from London Cannon Street or St Pancras, with regular services hourly throughout the week. We are just a short walk from the Station. For those travelling by car, it's easy to access Whitstable via the M2 motorway which passes close by.
