Why not hire a bike and go for a ride along the seafront, or follow the Crab and Winkle Way or ride along the coast of Herne Bay.

A lovely place to stay in Whitstable with everything you need to have a great holiday. Parking was fine and it was great to be in walking distance of everything. The woodburners were brilliant and we really appreciated the wood made available in the cottage.

We enjoyed a thoroughly comfortable and relaxing stay. The location is incredible and whilst there isnt private parking we didnt ever struggle to find parking very near to the property. The Easter treats and fresh flowers were a very thoughtful gesture and very much appreciated. Thank you! Would highly recommend.

Our second stay at Saltway House. A cosy cottage thats deceptively spacious for 2 families. The house is lovely and cosy but we also enjoyed the warmth from the log fire too.

The property could do with a bit of updating but was actually very comfy and warm. Beware of very steep stairs to the upstairs bedrooms. Only 1 bathroom downstairs. Nice little garden and fairly near the centre of Whitstable.
