Consistently ranked one of the most desirable seaside towns to live in Kent, Whitstable is famous for its oysters and shingle beaches, with the high street just 5 minutes drive away. This bohemian town is brimming with restaurants, boutique shops, traditional pubs, art galleries and picturesque streets. Pearson Heights is located to the south-west of Whitstable, across the road from Duncan Down, a large village green which has been awarded a Green Flag. A medical centre, supermarket, vets, hotel and restaurant are only 0.3 miles west. Follow the coast east and you will find yourself in the well-known towns of Herne Bay, leading all the way to the western tip of Margate.
Add to this Canterbury city which is under 6 miles from away, and access to major road links connecting you to the rest of the country, it's no wonder Whitstable is as desirable as it is.
