Fisherman’s Huts Whitstable, Kent

A row of converted Fisherman’s Huts right on the beach in Whitstable make for a unique and romantic place for seafoodies to stay in the fishy seaside town.

Fisherman's Huts Whitstable Kent

In a seaside town known for its oysters, thriving harbour, fish market, seafood bars and restaurants, go all-out for authenticity by staying in a converted Fisherman’s Hut right on the beach. You won’t have to haul in the nets but you’ll be able to smell the sea. We love them.

Fisherman’s Huts

The converted Fisherman’s huts are over 150 years old and were previously used as stores. The huts may be bijou, compact and simply furnished but their location and view more than make up for it. Cosy in winter and in summer, you’re just steps away from the pebbles and shells on the beach.

Cooking facilities are relatively simple but breakfast is included in the price as the huts are operated by the Hotel Continental, a nearby beachside hotel where breakfast is served. Next door, you’ll find The Forge, a seaside shack selling local beer, wine, fish & chips, ice cream and Whitstable’s world famous oysters (open year round).


  • Not all the fisherman’s huts have a sea view so make sure you request one when booking
  • Buy a bottle of Whitstable beer and fish & chips from the beach shack and watch the sun go down
  • At weekends, both a Friday and Saturday night stay is required
  • Cycle or walk the Crab and Winkle Way to Canterbury for brunch at The Goods Shed

I’m yappy. Some of the huts are dog-friendly so you can take me too. We can go for a lovely walk along the beach every morning.
