Description

This single-storey, holiday studio apartment provides the ideal base from which to explore the Kentish coastline.

This small, single-storey holiday property adjoins the owner’s home. Cosy, compact and well-equipped, it provides everything you need to enjoy your holiday. The open-plan kitchen comprises a full-size oven with hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and washing machine; the dining table is also located in the kitchen area. Partitioned off from the open-plan layout is the bedroom with a double bed, TV, wardrobe and chest of drawers.
Guests can enjoy privacy on the small patio area with seating, which is also enclosed for pets. There is a small shower room with tiled flooring, toilet and basin. Central heating to the property is included and controlled from the owner’s property - electric heaters are also provided in the open-plan kitchen, along with an electric coal-effect fire in the conservatory area. Internet connection is available and guests are more than welcome to bring pets. Guests can store cycles, surf boards, wellies etc in the garage, which hosts the entrance to Squirrels Leap. Parking is also available at the front of the property for one medium-size car.

The beach at Tankerton is within a 20-minute walk. Whitstable is a bustling harbour town, famous for its oyster festivals, and there is plenty to do and see. Take a walk along the beach, or enjoy dinner in one of the many restaurants, or a drink in the seaside pubs. Canterbury is a short drive from Squirrels Leap - here you can visit one of the most famous cities in the UK and explore its city walls, the cathedral, or even take a boat tour through it. Fishing is available at Mansfield Farm Lake at Broad Oak, which is a 15-minute drive, approximately 6 miles away, and a day ticket is £8.

    Squirrels Leap turned out to be excellent value for money. Linda and Pete made us feel very welcome and have managed to include everything in the accomodation you are likely to need. This area of Kent is well worth a visit and a meal in the Crab and Winkle restaurant in Whitstable is a must visit also the Oyster Bed pub serve nice pub meals in a comfortable friendly enviroment

    Linda & Pete are lovely hosts. Very welcoming and friendly. The studio annexe is just right for 1 or 2 adults and accompanying dog(s). It contains everything you would need. The surrounding area has so much to offer. My favourite was Whitstable Castle and Gardens with its Orangery Tea Room. Everything is nearby. Lots of information leaflets are available with recommendations of where to go and eat out and places to visit. Public transport is good. The visitors book is full of compliments - including my own.
