Island Cottage is a stylish former Coastguard's cottage with original features located in the heart of the conservation area of Whitstable, just yards from Whitstable beach and with wonderful views over the sea and the tennis courts. A comfortable family house sleeping five people with a sheltered enclosed garden. The town is just a short stroll down the road and the well-known Windy Stores is only 100 m away, where you can find all your essentials, delicious local produce wines, a cup of coffee or a tasty lunch. It is also very close to the local 9 hole golf course.
Whitstable offers everything from independent artisan shops, a strong art culture with lots of galleries and workshops, to the Horsebridge Arts Centre where you can catch a show and great restaurants, not to mention the lovely beach, working harbour and fascinating winding streets with original Fishermans' huts! The historic cathedral city of Canterbury is only a 20 minute drive away with bags of culture, great shopping and winding medieval streets to discover.
