  • "The property was exactly as described and a superb location."

    It was very comfortable, light and airy. The whole house was well decorated and fitted out even including extras like washing up liquid etc. The range and quality of glasses and crockery was impressive and the whole apartment felt of good quality. I would love to stay there again and would definitely recommend it. Thanks.

  • "Very nice recently refurbished apartment."

    The welcome pack was a lovely touch. It was a shame that the communal entrance to the building was unwelcoming with creaking stairs all the way up and in the apartment. The lower bathroom had no shower curtain so we could not use the handheld shower over the bath without flooding and damaging the bathroom. All 5 adults and 1 child ended up using the upper floor bathroom shower. The lock in this bathroom did not work. The trundle bed was more suitable for children than adults. On bin collection day (Wednesday) we had to put the wheely bins and recycling box onto the pavement by 7 am and then take them back after they were emptied. (Even then the recycling box was not completely emptied - only our stuff which were in bags were taken).

    Many thanks for your feedback. We are really glad you enjoyed the apartment which was completely refitted and refurbished a few years ago to a high standard. The welcome pack is our thank you for choosing Fairlight View! Fairlight View is part of a Victorian building which now dates back over 150 years so the original staircase can be forgiven for creaking a little. The lower bathroom does not have a separate shower cubicle but for those wishing to enjoy a relaxing bath and rinse their hair, we've installed a handheld shower for convenience. The bathroom lock will of course be checked and adjusted. Property Owner

  • "The entrance to the property was disgusting cobwebs and dirty floors lots of old letters."

    The property itself was ok, but there were no warnings about the amount of stairs the stairs were dangerous with carpet coming up. This is not the high standard that we expect from Sykes. It would make us think again about booking another holiday with you.

    Thank you for your feedback which relates to the communal entrance of the building and not the apartment itself. The cobweb, the letters and the carpet have now been addressed. A thorough inspection of the carpet has been completed and we are pleased to report that the carpet is safe. The apartment enjoys 180-degree views from Calais to Boulogne and beyond. So, to obtain such views, a few steps do have to be negotiated as the maisonette is over three floors. Many of our guests have commented on how fantastic the view of the coast line is from the apartment! Property Owner

  • "The apartment was delightful & we enjoyed a lovely week staying in Fairlight View."

    It was well equipped, modern, spacious & bright, right on the esplanade with glorious sea views. The welcome pack was a really thoughtful touch from the owners Tony & Chris who were ready to help with any questions on the phone. It was perfect for our week visiting Folkestone & enjoying walking along the coast & the Downs. It certainly exceeded our expectations.

  • "We stayed at the Fairlight View Apartment for the New Years Celebration with family for a week."

    This place offers a stunning view of the sea from the living room & 2 of the bedrooms. During our stay, we were able to experience the first sunrise on New Years day. Sunset could also be viewed on a clear day. The bedrooms are spacious & all the amenities needed are available. The place was clean when we arrived. The sea was right at our doorstep & we were lucky to have a New years dip. Would like to come back. Thanks to Chris & Tony who were contactable and very helpful during our stay.Would highly recommend this place especially in the summer.

    Many thanks for your kind feedback . So glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back to Fairlight View in the future if you ever need to stay in Sandgate again. Kind regards, Tony & Chris Property Owner

  • "It was touch or go whether my family and I would make it from Australia to see family but we did."

    When we arrived everything was really clean and tidy, a care package of food and drink in the apartment helped us with the first few days. It felt like Christmas with the tree and lights. We stayed for three weeks and the apartment was cleaned twice. The owner was very helpful. A great spot with a fantastic view and could hear the sea every night. There are a few stairs to contend with, but the view more than compensates for it. Graham

The property

Fairlight View is a superb, newly furnished apartment resting on the beachfront in Sandgate.

Set over two floors, with amazing sea views, Fairlight View is a well-situated setting for discovering Kent, within easy reach of Folkestone and Dover.

You enter the apartment at the first-floor of the building, then climbing half a set of stairs, there is the first bathroom, before finishing the stairs to the lower floor of the apartment, where you will find a contemporary kitchen/diner, the perfect space to rustle up an evening meal to enjoy round the dining table, as you talk about your day by the coast.

Moving through to the sitting room, there is a large bay window with immaculate views out to sea where the lights of France can be seen in the evening.

A television is located next to a feature fireplace making for an ideal place to relax, there is also an adjoining bedroom with a quirky trundle bed that also doubles as a great reading spot to enjoy the sea views.

Climbing to the second floor of the apartment, you will find a storage room, a king-size room with more sea views and a further twin room which make for great places to escape to whilst you rejuvenate for another busy day.

There is also a spacious bathroom with a bath with shower head and a walk-in shower, so choose how to freshen up for the day ahead in your own style, whether that be a long soak in the bath or a shower.

Outside you can find unrestricted, roadside parking at the front of the property, on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Sandgate is a small village on the south coast, between Hythe and Folkestone, boasting a 16th century castle which is now a Grade I listed private residency, as well as shops, bars, eateries, many of which look out over the esplanade.

Sandgate has a fairly long stretch of beach, great for picnics, a barbecue with fresh seafood, walks and also for watersports enthusiasts to get their thrill of adventure.

A short drive, or a lovely walk along the beach, takes you into Folkestone which is home to a wonderful harbour, surrounded my bars and eateries.Slightly further, you can reach the historical town of Dover, which is home to the international ferry port, so if you fancy a quick trip to grab some cheese and wine, it can connect you to a glorious day out in France, in just under an hour.

Also in Dover, there is a unique 18th century triple spiral stair case known as The Grand Shaft, Dover Castle and medieval tunnels which now offer tours, museums and galleries, a bustling marina and pier, and an English Heritage Roman Lighthouse.

A short distance from Dover lies St. Margaret’s Bay where a coastal walk provides you breath-taking views of the white cliffs and the English Channel.

Take in the quint coastal village that was once home to Ian Flemming (James Bond creator) and Noel Coward, and enjoy a coffee at the lighthouse while watching the ferries arriving from the continent.

Also nearby Fairlight View is Port Lympne Nature Reserve, the Dymchurch miniature railway connecting Hythe with the surreal landscape of Dungeness and the Kent Down Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which makes for great walking and cycling adventures through some scenic trails.

103 Martello Towers were built in the 19th century as small defensive forts, and with 27 of them lining the coast of Kent, the place is full of history and you can still visit 16 which still remain, starting with five in Folkestone, four in Sandgate and following through Hythe and Dymchurch.

For a historical and action packed trip to Kent, choose Fairlight View as your beachfront base.

About the location


Folkestone 1 mile; Hythe 2 miles; Capel le Ferne 5 miles; Dover 7 miles; Canterbury 15 miles; Dungeness 16 miles.

Sandgate is a coastal village sandwiched between the towns of Folkestone and Hythe. In the 1970s the castle was bought, restored, and made into a private residence and is now a Grade l listed building. Quaint shops, tea rooms and a micro pub make the high street an ideal place to wander and browse while on a relaxing holiday, or for those looking for something more energetic, there are a variety of watersports to enjoy. What could be better than a day on the beach with a picnic while watching the ever changing seascape, relaxing with a good book in the warmth of the sun or beachcombing along the shoreline in search of hidden treasure! Buy fresh fish at the harbour in Folkestone and enjoy a BBQ on the beach as the sun goes down or have a delicious meal at one of the many restaurants that overlook the Channel. If you still have the wanderlust for more adventures, take the ferry or train and in less than an hour you can be having lunch in a French bistro, or enjoying a drink outside a café. Then on your way back pick up some wine and cheese to complete the day! Sandgate, a hidden gem on the Kent coast.
