    • “'Modern' Grade 2 Listed Cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This Grade 2 listed cottage dated 1605 is absolutely brilliant! Many of its original features remain but it has a well equipped modern kitchen, with has central heating and a wood burning stove, with starter pack included in the rent TV with Freeview. Beautifully decorated with warm seaside colours in the very spacious and modern bathroom. The cottage is a few yards from the sandy beach and within easy reach of the shopping centre and the very many pubs and restaurants. Bed linen and towels were included in the rent. We had a perfect holiday and are going to book the SAME accommodation again THIS year! It honestly IS that good!”

About the location


Broadstairs 4 miles; Ramsgate 4 miles; Canterbury 15 miles; Whitstable 15 miles.

Margate, a seaside holiday resort set on the east coast of Kent, has undergone much renovation, and boasts the new Turner Contemporary gallery. This historic seaside town, with its Theatre Royal dating back to 1787, offers entertainment for everyone, from fishing and golf to beaches and amusements. The Winter Gardens offers a wide variety of events including shows, concerts and musicals with top performers throughout the year. You can wander along the Margate Harbour Arm and Old Town to browse artists' studios, relax in one of the many bars or restaurants or hire a bike. For the more adventurous there is a Turner and Dickens walk taking you to Broadstairs four miles away. The Shell Grotto, with its 2000 square feet of winding underground passages, delights visitors while the Hornby Visitor Centre brings back the nostalgia of Britain's best loved toys. Dreamland is also worth exploring with any little ones or those in search of old fashioned fun, with its traditional seaside attractions and vintage fairground. Margate is a lovely coastal town retaining its history but offering up-to-date entertainment for all ages with a variety of interests.
