Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Whitstable - Crab Cottage Whitstable

Two bedroom and bathroom livingroom and kitchen. Out door dining area and garden

Crab cottage is a traditional Kent weather-boarded house built in the 1820s by one of the Whitstable shipyards and has been variously used by shipwrights, fishermen and divers. It is part of a Georgian terrace of 5 houses, each slightly different and original in design and located on the edge of the beguiling maritime town, with its working harbour, fishermen’s huts sailing barges and yawls.

It is a small, bijou sized cottage suitable for a small family. There is a garden to both the front and back of the property with views over the Whitstable and Sea Salter Golf Club.
