Having driven up Friday evening after a long week, it was a pleasant surprise to see the welcoming fridge of beverages waiting to be sampled....., nice touch and perfect start. Girls being girls were impressed with the style and decor of the property as well as there was Wi-Fi, we were happy with the fridge. After a few beverages we managed to open the sofa bed for the girls and the wife and i slipped off to our haven. In the morning to our surprise the girls were not on their phones or arguing, but taking in the view of Whitstable harbour and planing our weekend ( who are these children ? ) Joking aside they had worked out that the bus stop out side the apartment would take us to Canterbury and there was also a train station within a short distance. Off we set to Canterbury for the day. It was lovely, beautiful buildings, shops and restaurants. Highly recommend the visit with easy access via bus, train or car. The evening was basically a walk around Whitstable a light tea and then games back at the apartment, where we found playing cards, quiz books and the welcoming fridge.... After a needed lay-in we walked around the harbour market and brunched in the town with the sun on us before heading back to the real world, shame we had to go home. On the whole,we had a lovely break, location was perfect, easy access to surrounding areas of interest and beauty. Apartment was certainly stylish and in keeping with Whitstable. Certainly go back to this Hidden Gem.

The cottage was well equipped and in the most perfect location for shops, restaurants, places to go and of course the beach. Having a secure private car parking space was also a big plus although once parked up we didn't use the car again for 4 days. Everything in within a short walking distance from the cottage and it was perfect spot to begin longer beach side walks to other towns. When we arrived we were met by our host with a warm welcome and introduction to the facilities. It was a great way to start our break.
