About Mrs Donna Manners
We purchased the cottage in 2010 when our daughter was studying at nearby Kent University in Canterbury. In November 2014 we commenced a total refurbishment and we are so pleased with how things have turned out. We have lived in London all our lives but have always holidayed in Kent since children so it holds a special place in our hearts.

Why Mrs Donna Manners chose Whitstable
We love Whitstable and we are sure everyone does who visits this quirky little seaside town just south of the busy City of Canterbury. The cottage is situated just off the Canterbury Road at the start of the busy High Street. there are no parking restrictions in the road so on street parking is available. There is no need to drive as Whitstable Railway Station is situated five minutes walk away with the High Speed Rail Link into London St. Pancras is just over an hour or Victoria in an hour and fifteen. Buses also run frequently to Canterbury and a new service along the coast to Margate.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is situated within five minutes walk of all the pubs and restaurants that Whitstable has to offer. The High Street also offers several small supermarkets and a range of independant butchers, greengrocers and bakers. Along with several good fish and chip shops, an evening in the pebbled courtyard with a take away and a glass of wine is a must! There are also several antique shops, art galleries and charity shops along with a locally produced cheese shop, cupcake shop and for those of you that remember, an 'Offy'...an off licence! Also you must not forget what Whitstable is famous for, it's Oysters, so why not try during your visit at one of the Oyster Bars or sea food stalls in the Harbour. Inside the property we have furnished it to provide you with a luxurious home from home stay. There is a small quaint front sitting room in 1950's style with TV to relax in, a spacious dining/family room with TV/DVD, game compilations, local history books, sofa and dining table. The fitted kitchen has a new electric oven with gas hob and integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer with complimentary tea, coffee and sugar provided. There is a washer/dryer in the utility room and a beautiful large half tiled bathroom. upstairs the twin room sports a nautical seaside theme whilst the double room is tranquil in shades of cream overlooking the courtyard and garden. The upstairs shower room is small but adequate and complimentary toiletries are left for your use along with freshly laundered luxury towels .

Beautiful home from home!
We absolutely loved our weekend at Iris Cottage and it was the perfect base for our family to explore the area. It had everything we needed and more- including tea and coffee, and wonderful toiletries. The space is cozy and welcoming with comfy beds and even some toys and books for our children! Thank you so much, we are already planning our next trip to Whitstable!
