The apartment has been finished to high standards , and there are so many things that make it special. The location is brilliant just a street away to sea front and everything that you need else where. There are many places to visit near by, lovely coastal walks, places to eat etc. Whitstable has kept cosy and inviting and we will return there again.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      If a rural setting with 20 minutes from everywhere is your aim, then you can't beat this place. 3 miles from Canterbury with all its supermarkets, 1 mile from the pubs at Fordwich and 10 meters from a bunch of funny cows who wait patiently everyday for their feed. The house is on a working farm and in August the farmer tends to his duties from 7 to 7:30am and the cows give a right mooing when he's there but I had the bedroom nearest the cow stall and I wasn't disturbed by the goings on. The house is much better appointed than any of the photos show, which perhaps show a rustic feel but the house is nicely furnished with a simple quality which is in keeping with the farm environment. The kitchen is ideal and we had no issues cooking dinner for 8 people almost every night. I would go back in a heartbeat. Downsides? Really churlish to point any out. Intenet is slow in accordance with the country setting, so don't expect to watch streamed video. There were a few flies in the attic bedrooms but what else would you expect in the country. Rural == rural, so don't expect a swimming pool ;-) Plenty of things to do in East Kent and I would recommend Dover Castle, the beach at Deal, Howletts Safari Park and of course the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, but that's because I'm a rail nut :-)) Clare and her daughter are welcoming and helpful, so don't hestitate to post a questions to them upfront. Cakes on arrival :-)))
