This modern, semi-detached, weatherboard townhouse, is situated in the coastal town of Broadstairs.
Beautifully furnished, this bright and cheerful property provides a superb base for both an active and relaxing family holiday, with only a seven minute walk to a safe, sandy beach.
Providing a beautiful home-from-home, and with accommodation over four floors, Kinsale has the flavour of the sea running through it, with fresh blues and whites, cream coloured walls and some lovely nautical touches.
On the first floor, guests are treated to a spacious open plan living area, with a well-equipped contemporary kitchen, generous dining area and sitting area with sumptuous sofas and comfy chairs, the perfect place to come together after a long day exploring Broadstairs, beachcombing along one of the seven sandy bays, visiting historic Canterbury or the lively Dreamland in Margate.
From the first floor living area French doors open onto a decked area and then a small lawned area beyond, fully enclosed this makes it the ideal place for children to run off some excess energy before bedtime.
Adults can then relax and unwind with a glass of wine, while sitting outside enjoying the last of the sun's rays, before also settling down in one of the four attractive bedrooms.
With an en-suite in one bedroom and a family bathroom, and the benefit of a cloakroom en-suite in the ground floor bedroom, there will be no queues in the morning.
The ground floor bedroom also offers access to a small seating area.
There are even toy boxes full of games and playthings provided to keep the younger ones entertained if the weather is less clement!
Broadstairs has been a magnet to holidaymakers for centuries; perhaps it is due to the quaint, cobbled lanes that lead to a variety of shops, ice cream parlours and tea rooms, or the museums and historic houses that draws the visitors.
With its safe, sandy beaches and wonderful walks along the shoreline, families and couples are lured back to Broadstairs time and again.
This cottage is a superb base for an interesting and varied holiday.

About the location
Ramsgate 2 miles; Margate 3 miles; Sandwich 10 miles; Canterbury 19 miles; Dover 20 miles; Whitstable 22 miles.
The town of Broadstairs, known as The Jewel in Thanet's Crown, has been a popular place with visitors for centuries. The town offers Blue Flag sandy beaches, fishermen's cottages, Victorian architecture, hidden cobbled streets, clifftop walks, and Bleak House, which was once the Summer home of Charles Dickens. There are also many independent shops, butchers, bakers, tea rooms, gift and antique shops, a quaint old independent cinema, crazy golf and even a teddy bear hospital! This area of Kent offers a plethora of excursions and activities, including the Turner Contemporary gallery, Dreamland Pleasure Park or fascinating Shell Grotto in Margate, Dover with its famous white cliffs and castle, Dickens World in Chatham, the cathedral city of Canterbury, wildlife parks, gardens ...and all of London's attractions are only an hour and a quarter away by train! In addition, the area boasts arguably the most spectacular stretch of golf courses in the south of England including Open Championship venue Royal St George's and Royal Cinque Ports at Deal - host to the 2013 Amateur Championship. The local town of Whitstable is lovely to explore with fantastic eating options and a chance to try the famous Whitstable native oysters. For those looking for peace and relaxation, why not walk or cycle the Viking Coastal Trail? This pathway leads from Broadstairs to neighbouring coastal towns, including Ramsgate. Or for longer walks access the North DOwns way which winds through the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. And with the Channel Tunnel just 40 minutes' away, or ferries available from Dover, you could enjoy lunch in France. Historic and quaint this town may be, but if live music is your interest, then you are truly spoilt for choice! Most of the bars and pubs hold music nights throughout the year, where you can listen to everything from blues to folk, with the Blues Bash held every February and Folk Week every August, each attracting visitors from all over the world. Or, visit Dickens Week, every June, the annual Broadstairs water gala at the end of August or the outstanding Food Festival held every October.
Note: Max. 6 adults.
