This property is situated a fantastic seafront location on Kent’s east coast in the village of Seasalter, known for its excellent gastropub. The nearby town of Whitstable, meanwhile, is situated just two miles around the bay and is a fantastic destination for foodies, as it is awash with pubs, restaurants, and cafes, many of which specialise in locally-caught seafood, including the oysters for which the town is famous. The town is also home to a great range of independent boutiques, and has a thriving arts scene, with a number of galleries and workshops, as well a theatre.

 

The first thing that guests will notice when they arrive at this property are the fantastic panoramic sea views which can be enjoyed from the cottage’s open-plan living space which comprises a lounge/kitchen/diner. There is a large sofa, as well as a TV/DVD for guests to enjoy and a new wood burner. The kitchen area overlooks the lounge and is equipped with an oven, hob, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. This is a single-storey property, so both bedrooms, one double and one king size, are conveniently located on the ground floor. Both bedrooms benefit from the newly added en-suite bathrooms, one with a bath and one with a shower.

Outside, the property enjoys an enclosed seafront terrace with a table and chairs, and two sun loungers, providing a wonderful space from which to enjoy the sea views and the fresh sea air. Charcoal BBQ and fire pit. There is parking available for two cars.

We enjoyed a very hot, sunny week at Mermaid's Cave in October. The location is beautiful, with plenty of birds to watch as the tides come and go. Mermaids Cave feels very much like a home, rather than holiday rent so it quickly worked its magic on the two of us and our beagle pottered very happily in the garden while we sat on the sun loungers andRead more read.
