Cottage in Whitstable, Kent, England - Great location, less than 5 minutes from the beach and harbour
About Tim Wood
We are a building company who normally do projects for private clients in central London. This house was a project for ourselves and our families and it required a lot more work than we first thought. But as anyone can see when they stay, a great deal of hard work/time and love went into making it into what it is today. It is our home from home and we relax as soon as we walk through the door. We hope you will feel the same.
Tim Wood purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Tim Wood chose Whitstable
I went to Whitstable with my business partner in July 2013 for the 1st time and we both really liked it. We thought it would be a good place for an investment property which both of our families could use when the work was done, and could also provide a small income as a holiday let. The house is in the perfect location for exploring Whitstable town and the surrounding coastal area and towns. It is right in the middle of everything which is why we bought it. It fits our enjoyment of walking every where and having everything within very easy reach. We park our car and only use it again when it's time to leave Whitstable!
What makes this Cottage unique
Our property is very close to the independent shops, good restaurants and pubs. You are able to wander about without having to use a car, unless you decide to go to Canterbury or any other near by town. When the tides out you can catch the swale, if your early enough! You may decide to cook or not. There is an abundance of restaurants and casual eateries.

Whitstable is a vibrant weekend destination and the property was well located for all the restaurants and the harbour
Great cottage and location
Very clean & well looked after throughout, with everything you could want.
It was beautifully renovated, as it says on the description, lots of little extras provided, near everything and couldn't be faulted.
Lovely modern spacious cottage right in the centre of Whitstable. Easy walking distance to harbour, beach, shops and restaurants. Cottage has everything you need and was immaculate. Hosts very helpful, welcoming and informative
Lovely cottage a stone s throw from the high street
Very centrally located. Once the car is parked then all shops,bars,restaurants,beach is within walking distance.
The cottage is spacious and the bathroom is huge and cosy. Check-in and out were super easy. We forgot our wash bag and we were lucky the person in charge sned it over to us for free. Classy! Thanks again.
There was milk and a welcome drink in the fridge which was very kind.
There is a back garden which we did not use as per the weather but when it is sunny it is a bonus. The master overlooks the street. It is in a quiet area but the local pub could be an issue for some in the summer.
It was no trouble at all to get your wash bag to you and I'm happy you enjoyed your stay at our cottage.
We bought out cottage specifically because we wanted to be near to everything and not use our car, as we do everyday for work and school! We just park when we go to Whitstable and don't get into it again until it's time to come home!
Whitstable is a busy sea side town so there is a lot of night life at certain times and most people walk home late at night. But generally the road is reasonably quiet.
Thank you for the review.
