The location is great for getting around Whitstable only a short walk into the centre and to the harbour. The house itself has all the amenities needed and the log burners are great to sit around in the cool evenings.

Cosy cottage, well equipped and clean (apart from a few cobwebs). We stayed during the heatwave and the attic room was unliveable as all the heat accumulated there. Due to the houses location next to a very busy road and train line we couldnt sleep with the windows open, so bring a fan if its hot. The house was smaller than the photos suggest and dRead moreoor clearance rather low between kitchen and bathroom (bumped head for 61 husband). The location for town and the beach was ideal. Hide

A lovely house in a great location. Saltway House was a real home away home and a wonderful base for exploring Whitstable.

Cottage was situated in a lovely location close to harbour, castle and the high street which consisted of several supermarkets, little boutique shops and lovely cafes/restaurants.. annie's bistro is a must.... Cottage had enough space for 5 adults and a dog... not much noise can be heard from inside the house even though on a main road.

Whitstable is great with a good range of unique shops, varied restaurants. Surrounding area full of interest and easy access by car,train or bus. Cottage is clean and pleasant but is on a busy(noisy) road with parking at least 10 minutes away.

Well equipped, very well situated and dog friendly. Whitstable is a great place with some excellent eateries that were dog friendly too. Not our usual type of family holiday but thoroughly enjoyed and fully relaxed after two weeks here!

We very much enjoyed our stay. Whitstable is a fabulous place to visit and the house was comfortable, well equipped and well located with the town, beach and train station all within a short walk. The Coop over the road was very handy.
