The cottage is an old rustic fisherman's cottage with 3 double bedrooms & two bathrooms (one of which is upstairs) across 3 floors, with a lovely courtyard garden, and it is about 30 secs from the lovely independent shops and restaurants of Whitstable and a minute from the sea & beach!
The interior is filled with a quirky mix of vintage & french boho furniture and there are the original wooden floorboards throughout the cottage. The sitting room has two large, comfy chesterfield sofas that will seat 6 people easily and the adjacent dining room has a dining room table which seats 6 people comfortably and there is also a lovely large real open fire for cosy winter nights!
Dogs are welcome to stay. (We have two rescue dogs although - they and us - obviously won't be there during your stay.)
All the bed linen and towels are made from high quality Egyptian cotton and during the summer months (actually up until October as it's still so hot) we will also provide beach towels, sun hats, beach mats, a picnic hamper etc.
In the garden we have a BBQ and we have a table & chairs for outside dining for up to 8 people. We have a chiminea in the garden for those evenings that turn a bit chilly.
The kitchen is stocked with fresh herbs from our garden, plus other dried herbs & spices, coffee, tea, sugar and further cooking condiments and the kitchen is well equipped with most things for those that wish to cook - hence the name of the cottage, as the kitchen has been built by a specialist carpenter and stocked with cooking utensils & condiments for those people like us that love to cook!
For home entertainment we have lots of vinyl records and a lovely working radiogram for guests to play records on, apple speakers for digital music, lots of books, games and two TV's with Sky and there is wifi throughout the cottage.
