The property

Nestled in Swalecliffe, Kent and close to amenities, Coast Guard House is an impressive, spacious property for a family holiday by the sea.

The house boasts five bedrooms, one of which lies on the ground-floor near to a ground-floor bathroom, making Coast Guard House ideal for a multi-generational family.

At the front of the house, you will find off-road parking and an enclosed lawn and patio, before entering the house and stepping into the bright and airy sitting/dining room with spectacular views of the coast; make yourself comfortable on the sofas, turn on the woodburning stove and treat yourself to a family film night.

The kitchen is large and perfect for preparing your family's favourite meal, with plenty of room for cooking together.

The first bedroom sits on the ground-floor and contains a double bed and has access to an enclosed, rear decking area.

There is also a ground-floor bathroom with a roll top bath for a well-earned soak after a day by the sea.

Heading upstairs to unpack and settle in, there are four more bedrooms; three double rooms, one of which is the master room with spectacular sea views, and one twin room.

There is also a family shower room; pop your towel on the heated towel rail and let it get toasty whilst you enjoy the fabulous walk-in shower.

Make use of the front patio on warm summer evenings by dining alfresco and taking in the sea views.

Situated in Swalecliffe, you will be close by to plenty of amenities, such as shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés for dining out and wandering around a lovely little suburb.

Whitstable is just a short drive west and another wonderful seaside suburb, where you can wander along Whistable harbour, try the fresh seafood and spend the day at the beach, or follow the Crab and Winkle Way for a long walk taking you all the way to Canterbury.

For a bustling seaside town full of history and culture, head east to Margate for a family day out visiting sandy beaches, Dreamland, an iconic amusement park featuring the UK's oldest wooden rollercoaster, Margate Caves or the Turner Contemporary gallery.

Of course, there are plenty of fish and chip shops and seafood stalls to try.

Canterbury sits just south of Coast Guard House and is a quaint little city with a spectacular cathedral and cathedral gates; catch a performance at the Marlowe Theatre, explore Westgate Gardens or take an interactive tour of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.

With beautiful coastlines and historical towns, Coast Guard House is a fantastic base to house the whole family for a memorable get together.

About the location


Whitstable 2.3 miles; Herne Bay 3.4 miles; Canterbury 6.6 miles; Dover 22.8 miles.

Swalecliffe is on the north coast of Kent, between Whitstable and Herne Bay, and dates back to the Norman times with sketches of its local church, which no longer remains. The small suburb is home to a beach, the Long Rock Nature Reserve, some great pubs and bars, a train station, a fish and chip shop, a post office, a Mediterranean restaurant and the shoreside Seaview Holiday Park. Further along the coast, to the suburb of Tankerton there is a larger selection of amenities and a shingle beach with a promenade and colorful huts. The nearby village of Chestfield has a golf course, whilst in the other direction the seaside town of Whitstable has a Heritage museum in a 17th century building, a stunning harbour and an array of restaurants serving local produce. Take a drive to Herne Bay, the seaside town which offers an iconic 18th century waterfront clock tower, as well as local museums and art galleries, the lovely Herne Bay Memorial Park and of course, the popular beach!
