The property

This immaculately-presented, superbly-located mid-terrace cottage in Minnis Bay, Birchington is the perfect place for families looking to stay close to the beach and all amenities.

Spacious, modern and welcoming accommodation, this Minnis Bay cottage has three attractive bedrooms, including a family bedroom with double bed and bunk beds, allowing for flexible sleeping arrangements.

The large kitchen, with its open plan dining area, lets everyone gather together to plan the day ahead or simply enjoy time together over a delicious dinner in the evenings.

In warmer weather why not dine alfresco in the large enclosed garden?

Or in the cooler months settle down in the comfort of the sitting room in front of the open fire; just the place to enjoy a DVD while sipping a glass of wine.

This part of the Kent coastline still offers a traditional seaside holiday, with swimming, beachcombing and all sorts of watersports; all part of Minnis Bay’s attraction.

This wonderful Minnis Bay cottage is close to all the amenities that a busy coastal town offers with shops, pubs and restaurants within an easy walking distance.

If you are looking for more than a seaside holiday, why not spend a day exploring the city of Canterbury with its cathedral, or the historic town of Broadstairs, with its quaint, cobbled streets and Charles Dickens connection?

Whatever you do during your stay here, a holiday at a cottage in Birchington is a holiday to remember.

About the location


Margate 3 miles; Ramsgate 7 miles; Broadstairs 7 miles; Canterbury 13 miles.

Minnis Bay is a long sandy bay with a Blue Flag beach backed by grassland and cliffs. It is a popular choice for families looking for a quiet, safe beach for children to enjoy, with a children's play area with a paddling pool. There are coastal cycleways and footpaths, and for the more athletic, there is a variety of watersports including sailing, windsurfing and sea canoeing to try. Minnis Bay is part of the town of Birchington, where you will find local shops, pubs, restaurants and a railway station. Beautiful Canterbury can be found only 13 miles away with its history, culture, cathedral, river trips and theatre. Minnis Bay has been a well-kept secret with its beautiful, sandy beach and its many amenities, but now it's your chance to explore this lovely part of the Kent coastline.
