The property

Located on the first floor, this lovely apartment is part of the historic Old Seabathing Hospital now converted into several residential properties set very close to the beach in Margate.

Ideally placed for an enjoyable seaside holiday for couples or a small family, this welcoming apartment is close to all amenities including shops, restaurants, railways station and Dreamland amusement park which is free to enter.

The spacious open plan living area retains the original high, curved ceilings and deep windows which offer stunning sea views, so whether you are enjoying an evening in with a loved one and a romantic DVD, or a morning coffee before setting off to explore the town, the sea is your ever-changing backdrop through the windows.

With a contemporary bathroom and modern recess kitchen, guests are well catered for in this attractive building.

The master double bedroom also has sea views and benefits from the same high, curved, feature ceilings.

So why not enjoy breakfast in bed while listening to the sea as it laps at the shore?

With a single bedroom completing the accommodation, this apartment is perfect for a couple holidaying with a child or perhaps bringing a friend or relative away for a traditional seaside holiday.

The crowning glory to this comfortable holiday home can be found by climbing the stairs leading from the sitting room area.

Although the stairs are somewhat narrow and a little steep the climb is well worth the effort as guests will find themselves in the glass conservatory where you can dine together while looking out over the sea and by stepping out on to the roof terrace you can breathe in the exhilarating sea air.

The choice of activities in and around Margate is enviable; from shops and restaurants, pubs and cafes, including the Mad Hatter’s tea room where often the Mad Hatter joins you for tea.

If looking for something a little different to do on a seaside holiday why not take a stroll around the Turner's Contemporary gallery and with no less than three theatres in Margate you will find yourself spoilt for choice when planning an evening out.

The Winter Gardens Theatre has a year round programme offering everything from afternoon tea dances to music events with celebrity stars so why not see who is appearing while you are staying.

Of course Margate is also known for its sandy beaches and Dreamland amusement park where vintage rides are still popular with all ages.

All of this and more is only a few minutes from this homely apartment making it an ideal choice for a holiday at any time of the year.

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.
