This home is in the heart of the town, on Whitstable's bustling high street, with its unique independent shops, restaurants, and galleries on your doorstep. Just a few minutes and you can reach the harbour and beach too.


There's a lot to see within walking distance, so if you decide to stay without a car you'll have plenty to do, and the property is just a 15 minute walk from the train station. If you drive, then there's a private parking space for you. It gets very busy over weekends and in the summer so having a parking space provided is a real bonus. The buses to Canterbury and beyond run along the high street, so you're minutes from where they stop. High speed trains from Whitstable run straight to St Pancras in just over an hour and round to Dover and Margate in less.
