  • "Very hard to find on the day I arrived."

    The address wasn't recognised by Gmaps. Had we been told to park at the Ramsgate Rd end of Park Avenue I'd have found it more easily. Lavender Lodge and Prior Close do NOT have a road of their own. There is a footpath off Park Avenue. This should be clearly stated. Parking near the footpath is challenging on Fridays and over the weekend. So expect to carry your luggage a bit further than you may expect. Very pleased to find the Loop Bus stop on Ramsgate Rd. With the petrol shortage while we stayed we used buses and trains to get about. We saved our petrol to ensure we could get home ! The owner was very helpful and met me on arrival. He explained how the facilities worked and was very welcoming.

  • "The house looked dated from the photos and it certainly was."

    But due to a lot of people holidaying in the UK, there wasn’t much choice and this property had quite a few free dates (I can now see why). On the positive side it had a good size tv, including sky, washing machine and dishwasher. On the negative side, the fridge hadn’t been cleaned out from the previous occupants. The freezer was all iced up. The front garden was well tended but the back garden grass hadn’t been cut and there was a pile of rubble in the back corner. The dustbins were filthy. The settees were very uncomfortable and the mattresses on the beds were very noisy when you turned over and that was in every room. I have stayed in quite a few holiday cottages over the years and this was certainly the worst ever. With a bit of care and attention it could be a lovely house. It was in a good location for the beaches but very overpriced. It would also have helped if the write-up had said it was in a gated community as you cannot park your car outside the house. Needless to say I will not be returning.

  • "The house and its facilities were fine, and the owner very helpful."

    No complaints, and we may well book again for next year. One minor niggle - the Sykes description suggests the property is walking distance from the beach. This comment is stretching it a bit, especially if their are young children in tow.

  • "Absolutely ideal for our needs and Michael was an excellent host."

    If I was being picky then the sofas were soft/ageing and the twin beds were very creaky but this didn’t affect our stay and wouldn’t stop us going back. The gardens were lovely and it was a convenient 15 mins stroll in to Broadstairs High Street. We had a really good time.

  • "We enjoyed staying at Lavender lodge the house has a very well organised theme with practical and comfortable decor providing a place for everything."

    The downstairs has a spacious lounging area which was ideal for enjoying a family film and takeaway. The garden was large and great for afternoon tea or barbecue with plenty of toys and seating areas to entertain children. The upstairs was cosy and the bathroom was airy with good light and well equipped with a shower and bath and a towel cupboard with fresh towels which was lovely and apeciated We were lucky with the weather, exploring the area of Thanet was exciting and we found some amazing beaches and nice places to eat.

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, 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.
