“The White House is a lovely ...”
The White House is a lovely spacious place to stay. It’s on 3 floors, beautifully decorated with lots of artwork around! We found having two bathrooms was really useful, as well as two living areas. The only thing we would add would be more serving bowls and glasses in the kitchen as we love to cook! The owners have left lots of kitchen basics (herbs, spices etc) which made life easier. Also we made use of the picninc blanket and buckets & spades for the beach. ...

Also we made use of the picninc blanket and buckets & spades for the beach. Margate is a mixture of run down (the street where the house is) and new, this made life interesting at times! We had a great week (with 4 young including teens and twenties), lots to do during the day, highlights being Quex Park and Turner Contemporary and obviously the beach. Yama’s Thai was excellent as was the Juice Bar at the end of the prom. Sonia is a great host and very quick to answer any questions....I would highly recommend!

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.
