Über dieses Inserat

A little cottage-apartment hide-away where you can really feel at home.
Harbour Cottage is the front half of a quirky, cosy, bigger Victorian cottage that would have been a fisherman's home. It's just 3 doors down from the harbour and beach. The cottage's position is fantastic too because it's parallel to the much-loved Harbour Street with all its bohemian shops and restaurants, but the street is somehow tucked quietly away.

A little cottage-apartment hide-away where you can really feel at home. (Please read to the bottom for clarity re. rental pricing).

Harbour Cottage is small but perfectly formed! It has its own front door, tiled hall and old wooden staircase. There’s a light living room/kitchen with a woodburning stove. And upstairs a small private bathroom and sunny double bedroom. The cottage is perfect for a couple, but if you are two friends it works out well too as there's a comfy single mattress and low futon base you can either have pulled out in the bedroom, or downstairs in the living room. Everyone seems to love my little cottage, it's homely, rustic and comfortable, and everyone says it has a uniquely nice feel.

If you don't already know the town, you will discover Whitstable is really special. It is a good mix of an old fashioned fishing small town community and artistic/foodie sophistication. The sea front has an unspoilt feel with hotchpotch white-washed cottages, old wooden fishing sheds and colourful beach huts. No concrete promenade here but a shingle beach with wooden groynes, wild flowers on the shore and oyster catchers pottering about.

You can make your visit as lively or as quiet as you like: for a little town there's so much going on, but you can easily find complete peace too. There's sailing, wind or kite surfing, boat trips out to see seals and our wind farm, tearooms, fish restaurants, independent shops of all kinds, live bands, unique festivals. Wild seas, rural beaches, ancient woodland, fantastic light, sunny days, geese migrating. Perfect

NB re pricing:

Week-long stays in Harbour Cottage mean the nightly rate works out as between £40 and £57 per night, depending on the season.

2-night weekend stays are usually about £90 per night.

If you stay a mid-length period such as 4 nights the rate is incrementally cheaper between the £90 and £40/£50 rates the more nights you stay.

Unfortunately the calendar format doesn't have flexibility for the idea that more nights = cheaper per night, so I have put a kind of average rate of £55. Please ask for final price when you enquire for certain dates and durations. Sometimes your nightly rate will work out more expensive and sometimes cheaper than will be automatically calculated on your first enquiry. Sorry about this. I don't know how else to manage my variable rate for the same night, depending how many other nights you stay.

My rents help me fund dog welfare and advocacy work in Spain, so I try to balance providing a good value, lovely space for visitors, with keeping my income level so I am able to provide reliably for the dogs depending on me.

Harbour Cottage is the front half of a larger cottage. It is a self-contained apartment with its own entrance. The owner lives in the back half of the cottage (Garden Cottage) with an entrance through the garden.

Dogs are welcome but please discuss directly with the owner. Generally the cottage is only really suitable for one small or middle-sized well-behaved dog. There are fantastic dog walks on your doorstep.

Cyclists are very welcome. There's space in Harbour Cottage's hall for two bikes and if you don't want to exert yourself you can bike for miles along the coast on flat paths. Inland there are lots of lovely hills! You can rent bikes in Whitstable.

Smoking is not allowed in this property.

Public Transport - You can walk from Whitstable train station to Harbour Cottage in just 10 minutes. So you can get to here from anywhere easily and leave your car behind. The train line is London-Ramsgate - you can leave from London Victoria or London St Pancras. Then you can easily get about locally by train and bus. If you live in London imagine a relaxing stay where you can leave work at the end of the day and jump on the train and be in your own little cottage ready to head out to the beach, or a great fish restaurant and some live music within an hour and a half. Sit and watch our sunsets with birds soaring and huge views. You are a world away!

Parking - if you do drive then parking is not bad here at all. Whitstable can get busy in the summer and Harbour Cottage does not have its own parking, however as our street is a bit hidden you can often park in the street (free) just outside the cottage or very close by. Even so there is the large Gorrell Tank town car park a two minute cut-through from the cottage. This is not expensive and there is always space.

The cottage is a real home from home so visitors should feel really comfortable. As such please treat it with respect and keep it nice for everyone who loves to come and stay.

Nette schöne, Ferienwohnung. Sehr gemütlich. Wir haben uns von Anfang an wohlgefühlt. Whiststable selbst war eine positive Überraschung! Viele wunderschöne Geschäfte, Bars und Restaurant und ein echt schöner Strand. Die Ferienwohnung war nur wenige geh Minuten vom Meer entfernt. Polly selbst ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, und sie spricht besser deutsch als Sie glaubt ;) Vielen Dank für den schönen Urlaub.

Pollys cottage was very clean, cosy and comfortable with seaside charm. A quiet location in spite of being central for both the town and the harbour. A parking space is like gold dust, but once you have found a space in the narrow roads in the area, you will probably do everything local on foot. All in all a wonderful stay, and highly recommend this place.

Polly was a great host, very accomodating when we had an extra guest staying with us at the last minute. Her place is a lovely quaint cottage, the front of her own house J

Polly's place was perfectly located for everything you need when staying for a few days or more. The facilities were great matching modern and rustic feature throughout the little cottage. Polly was the perfect host and was very helpful with leaflets and instructions for everything. Thank you Polly.

Harbour Cottage is the perfect place to stay in Whitstable! Situated a stones throw from the harbour and beach with the high street no more than 2 minutes walk away. Whats great is that even though its so central, its a nice quiet road where you can relax after a busy day taking in all the sea air or equally after a few drinks whilst enjoying the live music, and pub quizzes that the town has to offer. For such a small place there is loads going on, you are spoiled for choice. Polly's cottage is so cosy and homely, we felt at home with our dog Frank straight away. Really, really comfortable bed and the kitchen appliances and utensils are all available for cooking. The log fire is a great bonus but we only used it once as the heating kept us warm enough. The whole town is so dog friendly and we were welcomed into every place with Frank, we even went to the Whistable chippy at 1am and the morning and he was welcomed in! Everyone is so friendly, if you want to stay at Whitstable we would highly recommend Polly's cottage :) We look forward to staying again!

Truly cosy , well equipped cottage in a quiet street within a minute or two of the beach, coastal walks, and high street full of interesting independent shops and eateries. Good public transport links to explore further afield. Polly really cares that her guests are comfortable and feel at home. The log fire was fantastic on those cold windy nights! There is a comprehensive range of information on the area in addition to her super personal collection of (URL HIDDEN) a wonderful time and came back feeling totally relaxed. Highly recommended. Thank you Polly .

I look forward to welcoming you to my little Harbour Cottage and hope you will have a happy stay here. I live next door, in the back half of the cottage (Garden Cottage) with a mix of family, friends and animal friends living or visiting here too. I've worked for many years in aid/international humanitarian work, with a focus on East Africa. Nowadays I am freelance and mostly work from home on environmental, animal welfare and art projects. In particular my rentals are helping fund a rescue and advocacy project for the podencos of Spain. Podencos are wonderful, gentle, athletic hunting dogs that are abused in their working lives and abandoned in their hundreds of thousands at the end of the short hunting season. I rent out the front half of the cottage as a separate apartment and aim to make it a welcoming place where visitors can really feel at home. I love to meet people from all over the world.
