Planning your Whitstable Holiday

While we’re sure that you will love your chosen holiday home, you’ll also want to get out and explore the local area and Whitstable certainly has plenty to offer. 

Whitstable is a popular fishing village and is famous for its native oysters, which are available all year round. The Lobster Shack is the perfect spot to try these local delicacies, as it is situated directly on the beach and was once an oyster grading house. Annually, the Whitstable Oyster Festival takes place over a weekend during July, followed by Whitstable Harbour Day, a great day of family entertainment. If this doesn’t take your fancy, you can always simply take a visit to the beach, the harbour or the town's charming markets.

Slightly further afield The Crab and Winkle way is a charming trail running between the City of Canterbury and Whitstable that is popular with both walkers and cyclists. It can be a challenging excursion, but you will be rewarded with simply breath-taking views from the top of rolling hills. Alternatively, why not drive over to the city and visit the city’s iconic Cathedral and charming local shops, hotels and restaurants.

Herne Bay Cottages

Many of our exclusive holiday lets lie within a 5-mile radius of Whitstable, providing even more opportunities to explore the local area. Herne Bay for example, is another highly popular holiday destination and easily accessible via the Tankerton Slopes with their stunning views.

Herne Bay shares much of its maritime heritage with Whitstable and is home to the town’s famed pier, which during its heyday was once the second longest pier in England. Today the pier hosts a wide range of tempting meals and snacks, traditional fairground horses and retail huts.

The town is also steeped in history featuring the towering Reculver Towers, Roman Fort and gardens. If you fancy a little bit of exploration, why not see if you can find the local statue of Barnes Wallis – the inventor of the infamous “bouncing bomb.”

There is so much to see and do throughout Whitstable and Herne Bay that you’ll want to find the perfect base from which to take everything in. Be sure to take a moment to browse our hand-picked selection of self-catering Whitstable cottages and prepare for an unforgettable holiday.
