The Space

2 lovely double rooms in a charming seaside terrace house owned by James and Sammy, you can read more about us below, but firstly, our lovely house by the sea. We have a mid terrace, three bedroom house, about a 3 minute walk from the beach, called Lilly House. We are offering 2 comfy double rooms with shared use of the bathroom, overlooking the back garden. Cereals, toast, tea and coffee included in the morning and if you have any special requests please do ask us and we'll do our best to arrange this. It is a very peaceful and quiet road and the birds are always singing. Guests are more than welcome to use our beloved kitchen with huge range cooker and cosy living room with wood burning stove.
There is always a friendly welcome with recommendations for local restaurants, walks or pubs. You can read more about these in our guidebook, or feel free to contact us directly and ask. We have a large brick BBQ in the garden and also a gas paella ring and picnic table. There is also a hammock if you just want to have a drink in the garden and relax..
Lilly House has arguably the best location in Whitstable, with the beach, train station and Harbour Street all less than a 5 minute walk away. For a more comprehensive list of Whitstable's pubs and restaurants please look at our guidebook, and check back from time to time because we are always adding to it.
A car is not needed, though if you are driving there is free street parking.
Whitstable has many art galleries and the collections and exhibtions change frequently. There are countless beach and forest walks to in the local area, ranging from short strolls to long coastal walks. Cyclists of all abilities love this part of Kent due to its flat coastal paths and its much more challenging off road forest trails. James can advise you on the best places to go mountain biking within a 15 minutes cycles from the front door. There is rear access to the garden so muddy bikes aren't a problem at all!
Additional accommodation available-sofa bed in 3rd bedroom suitable for adults or children at minimal cost.
We will also be letting out the entire house during late July and August. We will be listing it as a 2 bedroom house.

  • James and Sammy are warm, helpful and very friendly. The house is great, in fact the room/bed was so comfortable that I slept longer than intended. All followed by a perfect breakfast that set me up for the day. Fab, loved it!

  • Conveniently located a short walk from the beach, harbour, and shops, which is where you want to spend your time anyway. The space is adequate for two people on a short stay.

  • Perfect location - such an easy and pleasant walk to the beach and main shopping street and near the train station too, yet in a really quiet road (only heard birds in the morning!). James and Sammy were very welcoming, the house was clean, tidy and warm. We we offered a lovely breakfast and treats too. This is a wonderful place to stay if you want to explore Whitstable or the surrounding coast. We hope to be back - thank you!

  • We arrived on a wet and wild Whitstable evening to a wonderful warm and welcoming home and big smiles from our hosts. Even better they took our coats and handed us a gin and tonic! James and Sammy fully embrace the spirit of Air b and b, sharing their home and enjoying their guests. They were knowledgeable about the local area , the room was comfortable, the house is in a great location, just a couple of minutes from the town and the harbourside and the bacon sarnies in the morning were excellent. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.

  • James and Sammy were the perfect hosts! It was a pleasure to stay in there
    lovely home by the sea. We were visiting Whitstable on a vintage scooter
    ride from London. After our long journey we needed a nice, comfortable
    place to sleep, hot bath and a cup of tea.
    Thanks, James and Sammy!
