A beautiful, cottage in an amazing location. The cottage is a home from home, with 5 star facilities. The location is stunning, the colours in the morning sunrise are breath-taking, plenty of coastal walks, for both humans and their four legged friends.

We had the most incredible time. The property is situated in a dream location right on the beach. The winner is the enormous windows that look out over the sea. A cup of coffee in the morning with a view like that is good for the soul!! It was paradise for the dog. We walked to reculver one day and whistable the next, both have excellent paths alRead moreong the shoreline. Its about a 10min walk into Herne bay where there are a few lovely pubs. We will definitely be back! Hide

If you enjoy pebble hunting, body boarding, wind surfing, watching the local yacht club, walks along the sea shore, and a lively coastal pier atmosphere, then this is the place. Watch the sun go down at the local pub, with your dog made welcome and take advantage of some lovely photography opportunities.

Really enjoyed our stay at this quirky and unique cottage right on the sea front. Walking distance to pubs, restaurants and shops. Great for walking the coast path in either direction. Expansive sea views from front of property. Would return again.
