It is fantastically situated only a couple of hundred yards from the harbour and only a few mintues walk to the town centre and beaches. The parking space for the car made life so easy as off or on road parking in Whitstable can be difficult.

Flat is lovely inside with everything you need. My husband is disabled so going in via the back entrance and up the lift was ideal. We loved doing the Great Stour Way walk which was 6 miles round trip all accessible by disabled scooter walking by the river. Canterbury town is lovely and very accessible for disabled visitor. We loved our time away thank you
