“Fabulous location”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Harbour cottage is a tastefully decorated cottage right by the harbour. It is perfectly located for the lovely town of Whitstable, which has a wide array of independent shops and eateries. Also good for waterside activities being a few moments from the beach.


We used it as a base to explore the area and would thoroughly recommend both the cottage and the area.

“Lovely cottage perfectly located”
Reviewed 30 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Harbour Cottage is an absolutely lovely base for a stay in Whitstable. It is perfectly located just a few minutes walk from the centre of Whitstable and immediately opposite the fish market and Crab & Winkle restaurant. The cottage is very pretty on both the outside and in. It is tastefully decorated throughout. The bed was very comfy and we both slept well. All amenities catered for - the only thing absent is a full length mirror. The owners did all they could to make our stay pleasant and we had a lovely time. This property is not suitable for people with mobility disabilities due to the steepness of the stairs.

“Pretty cottage, tastefully decorated”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We spent a lovely week in Harbour cottage which is perfectly situated for all the amenities and attractions Whitstable has to offer. It is directly opposite the harbour and just a few minutes walk from the shops and restaurants. The cottage is tastefully decorated with more than a nod to Cath Kidston styling. It was immaculately clean and very well equipt.
It is worth being aware that the 3rd bedroom is up a very narrow and twisting staircase.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Well equipped, comfortable cottage. Superb location opposite the harbour and within 5 minutes walk of the town, beach, restaurants and large car park.
Owners were very helpful and the scones, cream and cakes they welcomed us with were superb.

“Harbour cottage...what a find!”
Reviewed 7 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Harbour cottage was one of the loveliest cottages we have stayed in. It was beautifully decorated with all the mod cons and everything you could possibly need not to mention it's high standard of cleanliness. The beds and bedding were amazing...best nights sleep in ages! The cottage is only round the corner from all the gorgeous shops, pubs and beach so perfectly located. Now we have found this gem of a cottage in such a special place like Whitstable, we will be returning again and again. Thank you Harbour cottage! :)
