Nestled on the North Kent coast, Whitstable is the perfect summer retreat for those looking for beautiful beaches, delicious cuisine and artistic culture. As your trusted holiday rental agency, we are here to help you discover why Whitstable is the perfect staycation destination.

A Foodies Paradise

If you are considering a Summer 2021 holiday to Whitstable, then your tastebuds are in for a treat. The quaint seaside town has become renowned for its delicious local food. Fish and chips certainly don’t disappoint, with a firm favourite being VC Jones on Harbour Street. The much-loved local chippie has been serving scrumptious, freshly cooked fish and chips since 1962.

Whitstable is also famous for its freshly collected oysters, and there are many local eateries serving up these tasty treats. Wheelers Oyster Bar on the High Street is Whitstable’s oldest restaurant and still super popular thanks to their heavenly local oysters, quaint vibe and pretty pink shopfront. For those less keen on seafood, Samphire is a luscious local bistro serving up some delectable dining options.

Something For Everyone

Visitors can absorb the tranquillity on a wander past the candy-hued beach huts on the promenade or soak up some sunshine on the delightful pebble beach.
