All you need for a quiet escape from everyday life, with the beach nearby & fantastic coastal walks. Light & spacious studio with a vintage look & feel on the lower ground floor of our home. Ten minute walk to beach & town. Open plan space: double bed, generous lounge area & beautiful shower room. Use of the lovely garden and patio with barbeque and views over town to coast. Optional continental breakfast: incl vegan, dairy/gluten-free. Everyone welcome, we're LGBT+ straight friendly.

The space
Styled with an eclectic mix of vintage and modern furniture, soft furnishings and artwork gathered over many years by the owners who are lovers of mid-century design.

Guest access
The private studio is on the lower ground floor of our family home, no contact entrance is via code operated lock at the side gate, and the door key is in a lock box outside the studio. Guests have access to the studio, shower room and patio/garden. Off-road parking is available on our driveway.

Other things to note
The studio will be deep cleaned and left empty at least 24 hours between guests, we supply anti-bacterial gels outside and inside. We can help with any queries from a safe distance.

The studio does not have a kitchen, and there are no cooking facilities. There is a super quiet mini fridge (fits a few essentials), kettle, Nespresso coffee maker. Coffee and tea are provided with fresh milk and juice in fridge. There are plenty of plates and cups in the drawers as well as cutlery. Just leave used crockery etc in the bowl outside and we will remove for washing.

At the current time we offer an optional continental breakfast hamper which will be left for you in the studio, this will consist of packaged items only. We are happy to offer vegan dairy/gluten free options and can adapt our breakfasts to dietary needs as required. (Please advise us of your dietary requirements in advance).

There is a hanger for clothes and chest of drawers. The studio is centrally heated with thermostat control. New (award-winning) Emma mattress to ensure you get an extra comfy night’s sleep.

The studio is accessed via lit steps to the lower ground floor.

We have two friendly cats who are not allowed into the studio, but are likely to come and say hello if you are in the garden, our dog is elderly and gentle and is kept indoors when we have guests, but be sure not to leave the side gate open at all. We also have chickens at the very bottom of the garden, there is no cockerel though, so no dawn wake up calls!

Although pets are excluded from the studio please be aware that cats and dogs live in our environment, and consider this carefully when booking our place if you have allergies to animals.

Location

Kent, England, United Kingdom

We are located up a short hill on the East side of Herne Bay, a 10 minute walk to the beach and the centre. We are walking distance to some great restaurants (The Four Fathoms and Casa Mia are favourites). We are 5 miles from Whitstable and 10 miles from Margate so daytripping is a doddle!

John and I love living by the sea with our son in Herne Bay, Kent. When we're not working (Social Worker and Photo Editor) we spend our time gardening, collecting vintage homewares, keeping chickens and watching the fantastic sunsets. Zoe has a successful business selling vintage textiles and we both have a passion for mid-century design. We can recommend our favourite rummaging haunts for vintage treasure, the finest local coffee shops and restaurants, fantastic cycle routes and one of the best places in the UK for finding fossilised sharks teeth...56 million years old!
