The Property

A fabulous, detached property located close to the heart of Broadstairs and within a minute’s walk of Stone Bay, one of the sandy beaches for which the area is famous. This beautifully-presented Broadstairs cottage is the perfect choice for families and friends wishing to enjoy a traditional seaside holiday. With four attractive bedrooms, two on the ground floor, and three bathrooms, this cottage in Broadstairs allows everyone time and space to relax and unwind. In the superbly-equipped, modern kitchen you can prepare everything from snacks to celebration dinners, even keeping the wine chilled in the wine cooler. The large dining area lets guests gather together and plan the day ahead or reflect on the day's events as a soft sea breeze blows in through the French doors. On warm summer days, the large, enclosed lawned garden is perfect for children to play in and for grown-ups to make use of the barbecue. At other times, the children's playroom, crammed full with toys, games and DVDs to watch, allows parents to enjoy holiday time to themselves. This Broadstairs cottage is a delight to stay in, but with the sandy beaches and harbour so close, make sure you take your buckets and spades and head to the shore, not forgetting to pay a visit to legendary ice-cream parlour Morelli's. Why not take a fishing or seal watching trip, or experience the sea air as you enjoy the fruits of the sea at one of the many beach cafes? Broadstairs is renowned for its connection to Charles Dickens, and Bleak House, with its history and garden looking out to sea, is the perfect place for afternoon tea and is just a 2 minute stroll away! If you don't fancy cooking, the cottage is within walking distance of a huge variety of restaurants including Italian, Indian, Thai and of course fish and chips! So, at the end of an eventful day, full of sea, sand and adventures, return to this Broadstairs cottage, sink into sumptuous seating and relax!

About the location

BROADSTAIRS

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 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, from where you can cross the Channel and visit the Belgium city of Ostend. And with the Channel Tunnel just 40 minutes' away, 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, or the outstanding Food Festival held every October.
