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.

    Our second stay here. Great location, clean and comfortable. Our dogs love the walk on the beach front. Owners are lovely people who are very welcoming and leave you alone but are around if needed. Would definitely stay again.

    Quite an unusual property, it is a small annexe to the owners' home, and you do literally enter through the garage. The kitchen is excellent and well-equipped, and Whitstable is a really lovely place, and I thoroughly recommend the high street area, full of interesting shops and cafes. However, the property is quite a distance from the centre, and also from the beach at Tankerton. The property is very pet friendly, with a room where you can leave your dog when you go out, and with doggie bags etc. provided. Linda the owner is lovely, and very helpful. Overall it made a great base for exploring East Kent, and was perfectly warm and cosy. The courtyard area at the back is private, but very small for a large dog, mine never felt comfortable out there, and had to wait to go to the park to answer any calls of nature. There is a parking area, which is only big enough for a small to medium car, and I would not recommend staying here if you have a large car, as the property is at the end of a cul-de-sac, and parking is in short supply.
