Property code: WCC01

Stunning and stylish contemporary property which sleeps two guests and enjoys a fantastic seafront location in the East Kent village of Seasalter, just 2 miles from Whitstable.

This property is found in a wonderful seafront location, directly on the beach in the village of Seasalter in East Kent. At high tide, the waves lap gently just a few metres from the property’s spacious decked seating area, and there are miles of beach walks to be enjoyed from the property’s front door, including the 35-minute walk to the popular, fashionable town of Whitstable, just 2 miles away. The village itself is home to one of the area’s most highly-regarded gastropubs, as well as a handy village shop. For a wider range of shops, as well as the historic cathedral, large theatre, and cinema, why not spend the day in Canterbury, which is just 6 miles from the property.

Guests will instantly fall in love with this stunning loft-style beach house, which has been finished to an exceptional standard throughout. The first thing that guests will notice is the sense of space and light which has been carefully created here, thanks to the open-plan arrangement, double-height ceiling, skylights, and glass wall which opens onto the spacious seafront veranda. The owners have paid careful attention to detail to create a stylish space, with comfortable furnishings and on-trend decoration. There is a large corner sofa for guests to relax on and enjoy the view to the beach whilst listening to music on the iPod dock, or instead perhaps fire up the wood burner and curl up in front of a film on the TV with Sky channels, DVD, or Blu-ray player. The dining area occupies one corner of the open-plan space, from where a door leads through to the conservatory kitchen which offers a Range-style oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, washing machine, and dishwasher. The double bed is located in the opposite corner of the room to the dining area, whilst a small sofa can be found upstairs on the loft-style mezzanine floor. The bathroom has a fashionable, sleek feel to it and offers a bath, separate shower, and WC.

The spacious decked terrace to the front of the property is situated right on the beach, and is a spectacular place from which to enjoy the fresh air and the relaxing sound of waves from the table and chairs provided. There is also a pretty marine-style garden to the side of the property, and off-road driveway parking for two cars.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
