We were three generations enjoying a half term holiday break.
Julie gave us a very warm welcome to Heron House and could not have been more helpful.
The house has been elegantly decorated and is extremely well equipped, with a generous supply of little luxuries to enjoy.
There was plenty of space throughout the house for six adults to relax and have a good time. The weather was kind enough for us to spend a lot of time in the garden and to take advantage of the barbecue which is supplied. There was some good natured competition over the occupation of the little summerhouse, which was really useful for those who needed a quiet space for some work.
The two children (5 and 6) adored the beach and the park, both within easy walking distance, and the frequent access to ice creams.
Whitstable offers a great choice of restaurants, cafes and small shops, so there is no need to venture beyond the High Street and the beach for all that you might need.
Heron House comes highly recommended and we certainly aim to return.
This is a beautiful house that is thoughtfully and lovingly presented with a spacious feel and extremely comfortable beds. It was able to cater for our large family group with small children very easily. The location was perfect for us - 5 minutes from the beach for picnics and crabbing trips, and an easy walk to the town centre with its many and varied lovely shops and restaurants.
Julie very considerate and attentive and was available and happy to answer any queries we had in the lead up to and during our stay.
Would definitely recommend it!
Just enjoyed a beautiful long weekend in this lovely house. It's in a great location easy for high street moments from beach. It is beautifully presented, imaginatively designed and decorated to the highest level. Beautiful bathrooms lovely kitchen and a cute little garden. Every detail has been thought of from the shower products to the iPhone charger. Would highly recommend!
This was a truly wonderful find! It was my parents Ruby Wedding Anniversary and the family (8 people) wanted to go to Whitstable for the weekend. Finding 4 double bedrooms is actually quite difficult! But this house has the option to make up singles, twins or doubles.
It is in a great location (Whitstable is not that big anyway) close to amenities, the beach and lots of nice restaurants and pubs - very handy!
But it was largely the house that made our weekend. There is nothing that Julie the owner has not thought of. She was there to greet us on our arrival and go through everything and show us where everything was. She gave us all basic store cupboard and fridge ingredients, as well some goodies to start the weekend off (fizz, choccies, biscuits). We planned to stay in on the first night and cook dinner, and the kitchen was better stocked with equipment than my own! And everything of absolutely top quality.
The rooms are top spec, very "Whitstable-esque" with real fires, Sky TV (not that we really watched it), Bose speakers to link our iphones to, blankets (it was wintery when we went and it is an older house, although it warmed up super quick), I can't mention everything, but we didnt want for anything.
The bedrooms were beautiful, and the master bedroom on the top floor was exquisite, like something out of an interior design magazine!
2 bathrooms as well as a downstairs loo. Everything was spotless (more than spotless if that is possible) and top quality (all the sheets and towels etc).
I couldn't rate this place enough - top quality for great money, in a great location. If we ever go back to Whitstable, we wouldn't hesitate to book this place again.
Thank you Julie (and sorry for how long it took me to post!)
We booked Heron House for a family wedding in Whitstable. Three generations were easily accommodated, all in comfort. The eldest 92 and the youngest 4 and all in between rubbed along with ease in this stylish but comfortable refurbished Victorian house in a convenient location for high street and beach. We would return without hesitation.
Julie, the owner was kindness itself and could not have been more helpful. From the welcome pack and the instruction folder to the leaving arrangements there was no difficulty to mar our special weekend.
