Beach Retreat is a chalet-style beach house, a comfortable and cosy place to unwind. All-round views of seaside and countryside. Relax in a deckchair on the raised decking or in the private beach garden; stroll along the beach to Whitstable with its boutiques, restaurants and busy fishing harbour. Ideal for walkers and birdwatchers, with the Saxon Shore Way and Oare Marshes Reserve close by. The cathedral city of Canterbury is just a short drive away.

About Melinda Barry
I love to escape the bustle of everyday life and spend time by the sea. I live just a few miles from Beach Retreat so I'm always on hand to offer my guests any assistance they need or provide local information! For direct bookings please email me, email@example.com.
Melinda Barry purchased this Chalet in 2010
Why Melinda Barry chose Seasalter
Beach Retreat is my dream house by the sea which I bought a few years ago. It's my pleasure to make it available to my guests, many of them regulars, who love this spot as much as I do. All rental income has been put into improving the property, most recently with a beautiful new kitchen area.
What makes this Chalet unique
Beach Retreat is remote and peaceful, yet not isolated. Convenient shops in the village of Seasalter are within walking distance; Whitstable with its working harbour, boutique shops and restaurants is 5 minutes drive, or a pleasant 45 minute walk around the bay. Birdwatchers need hardly leave the house, just wait for the seabirds to arrive at low tide! But Swale Nature Reserve is just down the beach, and Oare Marshes Reserve, with trails and hides for birdwatchers, is a few miles away near Faversham. For a unique local gourmet experience, try The Sportsman down the road - but you will need to book in advance!

fantastic location, watching the sunsets, and the bike riding on the flat !
Amazing sunsets, nice little beach shack
We spent lots of time looking out at the birds and the sea forts. Whitstable is walkable. The accommodation is good, cosy and provides everything you need, but we did feel it was overpriced for what it is.
Great property, Great location, Great sunsets
Whats not to love ! We will be back ! 😎
Stunning homely relaxing comfortable wonderful retreat
We had an incredible time...the beauty from inside and outside made us so happy and the place was so well kitted out and comfortable... I couldn't think of a better place for us! It was romantic and inspiring. Loved it. Will be back. The host was really lovely also....
Thank you for making your retreat such a lovely place to unwind and enjoy.
Well equipped, comfortable and fabulous views.
Beach Retreat is a very special place.
It lacks nothing and feeling at home is instantaneous.
Booking, parking and unloading is really easy and there is a nearby convenience store and takeaway.
We sat outside on the deck and at the inside table by the huge windows for meals, watching spectacular sunsets become starry nights. Listening to the sea and the multitude of wading, dipping seabirds.
Melinda is a discreet and helpful host and there's a wealth of things to do in the area.
We arrived hoping that everything would live up to the photos and description and left thoroughly enchanted.
