Lots of interesting things to do in the area – our favourite pub for great sunday lunch , The Three Mariners, is holding its annual music festival on the weekend of 11th and 12th September. Not only can you have great food, but you can hear some great music. Hamish Stuart, formerly of The Average White Band owns the Three Mariners and puts on this festival of music, food and beer in the gardens.
The famous Whitstable Oyster Festival is also on from 24th july to 30th July – lots of things to do all week.
We had a great listing in the Times best 100 country cottages:
98 Island Wall, Whitstable, Kent
What a relief to know that there’s somewhere like this just 90 minutes from central London: 98 Island Wall is a weatherboard, end-of-terrace cottage with sunbleached interiors and an overequipped kitchen. You can drop your bags, kick off your shoes and go straight down to the beach. Bliss.
