  • "Overall a lovely, clean and well-appointed house in an excellent location."

    Blinds in the kitchen would be a great help; in hot weather the sun pours straight in and it can be quite uncomfortable. there are shady rooms on the other side but there is only one kitchen!

  • "Excellent location for walking to beaches and town."

    The property was spacious, clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Information and directions were sent before arrival and there was a folder of local info in the house. Our toddler appreciated the playroom with toys, books and DVDs and we made good use of the garden furniture. The only thing we might have liked was a garden parasol to provide some shade on sunny days. The housekeeper responded promptly to a query. Very happy with our stay.

  • "Lovely property, spacious and well thought out."

    Lots of essentials to. Locked on bathrooms please though. Comfy beds too. Really close to town, about five to ten mins walk, 5 mins walk to the beach. Lovely big garden to. Broadstairs is a lovely town, great micro pubs and restaurants.

    Next time would like the bathrooms to have locks. Also, I rang the housekeeper twice as my sister got locked in the toilet (handle mechanism stopped working) - housekeeper did not answer. I then spoke to the Landlady who was excellent. Will definitely be coming again x

    Great for family reunions. Rubbish disposal arrangements need to be made more prominent.

  • "It is a wonderful property in a great location to explore Broadstairs and the local area of Thanet."

    There's lots to see and do. The property is spacious, modern and clean - a home from home. Only recommendation we could think of is that perhaps a window blind would be good at the patio doors in the kitchen/diner area. It is lovely to have the sun streaming in during the morning, but it is low this time of year so would be useful to be able to provide some shade. We had a wonderful week and would certainly like to return at some point.

  • "There was plenty of information provided about the property, how to find it, where to eat locally, what to see etc."

    It was well situated to walk easily into central Broadstairs yet was nicely secluded and quiet. Everything was very clean and well presented and the owner couldn't have been more helpful. We all had a lovely holiday.

  • "The accommodation was extremely clean, very well equipped and very comfortable."

    It was spacious and had a lovely outdoor area. Great to have dedicated parking available, and the location could not have been better - 5 mins walk from the High street, 1 min walk to the beach, and in a quiet, open area.

    Although it was clean it was not perfect for Covid 19 standards. The kitchen chairs were very uncomfortable to sit on. It was great to have sky tv. Overall the property was good and would recommend it.

  • "We love Broadstairs and Redwood is perfectly positioned to be close to the beach but with good privacy and parking facilities."

    The Housekeeper was very helpful and friendly and the house almost perfectly appointed. There were some minor quibbles about the fact that there are no toilet roll holders and things of this sort but overall we were very pleased with our holiday. Stone Bay, the nearest beach exceeded expectations with good facilities and lifeguards on duty who were very helpful and also vigilant. The ebach was fairly clean except for a few barbecue ashes from earlier parties.

  • "The property was extremely well equipped."

    Can't think of anything that wasn't provided. The location couldn't have been better -----we went on the beach every day. Sunshine and ice cream on the beach at Christmas --- what more could you want?! The kitchen was great, very good quality appliances-- that was important as I spent a lot of time in it. The only thing I would say is that the first time I used the oven it smelt as though it needed cleaning. I cleaned the racks and that seemed to improve things. Maybe that could have been done before we arrived? Overall we were all very happy and had a great time.

  • "The family had a superb stay in Redwood."

    One or two suggestions. With an active walking eleven month old it was difficult to relax in the garden with all the steps. Maybe it Would be possible to place a small fence and a gate between the front wall and the house wall. It would be safer too. Maybe a stair guard at the bottom and or the top of the open staircase. The fire in the lounge with the coals was very interesting to the little man. He handed the coals to us but could quite easily thrown one and hit the television screen. Maybe a small fireguard? The playroom was enjoyed and used daily. We did not manage to put anything in the Guest Book but would have recommended Redwood highly and would come again in the future.

  • "Bathrooms generally need updating with regard to decoration."

    The tap in the first floor bathroom barely delivers hot water and the room could do with a decent mirror. These are relatively minor points which could lead to improvement but did not spoil our stay in the property. We tend to cook when we are away and we found that the kitchen was well equipped. However one essential requirement which was lacking was oven gloves. With the weather being so foul during our stay the excellently stocked playroom kept our 21 month granddaughter (and all the adults) amused!

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.

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!

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.
