“Cosy and comfortable!”
Reviewed 24 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Stayed for a long weekend with my mum and sister. Perfect for shopping and getting to know the area. Bedrooms were so comfortable and the open fire made it extra cosy (take own fuel, you can buy locally). Great house and good value.

“Wonderful place in Whitstable”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at the Ventings in April for a (unfortunately too short) family holiday in Kent.
What's to love about the cottage?
Nearly everything: located in spitting distance to the high street and the harbour, everything within easy walking distance. Wonderful interior renovations, a really stunning place with loads of design and personal touches. Loved it. Squeaky clean, too.
What's not to love: Parking can be a bit of a challenge, streets are narrow and rather crowded, but that (and the sometimes lively pub around the corner) is to be expected when you stay in the city center. Steep stairs (and I do mean steep) were great fun for our kids, but may not bee too much fun for those unsure of their footing.
An absolute plus were the people renting out the cottage: Matt and his friends were always very communicative, helpful and absolutely flexible to accomodate our whishes/needs. Perfect hosts, really!
If you want to visit London from here: 10 min walking to the train station and you can take a direct train (~90mins) to Victoria Station.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Myself and 3 friends stayed at The Ventings in Feb this year for a 4 nights and found it perfect in every way. The location is fantastic, with parking right outside which is a huge bonus. The property itself is big enough for everyone to feel they have their own space, yet cosy enough so that you don't feel disconnected from the other people in the house. The only problem is, with the house being so welcoming and homely, we struggled to drag ourselves away6 to discover all the amazing things there are to do on the doorstep. We have already booked up for our second stay this year.

“Ideally located nicely furnished fishermans cottage close to all amenties”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This cottage is lovely. It was plenty big enough for myself and 3 girlfriends for the weekend. The beds were really comfy, the kitchen was well equipped and the house was decorated with a seaside/ fishermans theme, which made you feel you were by the sea. The cottage was ideally located for walking into whistable and down to the beach.

I would recommend it to anyone who want to see whistable at anytime of the year.
