Beach Haven

Beach Haven

A small collection of individually designed properties situated in a secluded location at the heart of Minnis Bay, only a few metres from the sandy beach. The homes are adjacent to the popular sailing club, and the windsurfing and kiteboarding clubs also utilise the perfect sandy beach access, adjacent to an area of outstanding natural beauty and special scientific interest.

The Cathedral City of Canterbury is only 14 miles away, as is Whitstable Harbour with its famous Oyster Restaurant and the Birchington-on-Sea main line railway station offers a fast service direct to London. The area also offers public, grammar and high schools of excellent standard.

The individually styled properties contain design elements linking adjacent homes, harmonising the appearance of the development as a whole.
