You’re just off the high street for a farm shop, good butcher and The Whitstable Fish Market on the harbour for fresh, sustainable fish and oysters. Bring everything back to the kitchen, a superb space with handmade wooden worktops, a big range cooker, Smeg fridge and every pot and pan you could want – including a lobster pot. Refillable glass jars of pasta, rice etc can be replaced at the zero waste shop, there are cupboards of herbs and spices, plus a bottle of Prosecco cooling.
Bedrooms are spread over the two floors: find vintage beds and mirrors, plants, rich hand cream and bath robes; the downstairs bathroom has a vintage roll top and the upstairs a shower – both have Aesop body wash. In summer you’ll be in the walled garden which is just made for entertaining and has a summerhouse (with a cinema projector and WiFi), a chiminea, hammock, and an outdoor kitchen with a Big Green Egg – perfect for smoking, roasting and pizza making.
If you’re stuck indoors then play some vinyl or a board game, choose a book, light the open fire and settle on a restful Chesterfield.
