A two bedroom duplex apartment within a Victorian townhouse, the Hideaway has many original features and is arranged over two floors. The living room, fully fitted kitchen/diner and bathroom are on the ground floor, with double and twin bedrooms and a separate WC on the first floor.

|Further details outdoors|
The Hideaway is situated in a very quiet lane in the oldest part of Broadstairs, with many flint-walled buildings dating back to the 18th century and earlier. There is a private shared garden for the sole use of residents, in addition to the Hideaway's own private walled courtyard, with seating. The garden offers benches, a summer house, and plenty of space for a barbecue or to exercise children! As the garden is shared, we ask that guests use it with consideration and respect.
We are unable to offer off-street parking, but there is unrestricted parking in the road outside the Hideaway, and in neighbouring streets. In addition, there is a pay and display car park less than one minute's walk away.
We regret that due to the nature of the apartment, it is unsuitable for guests with limited mobility. We are sorry but we are unable to accept pets.
The South East England region
Kent is known as 'the garden of England' for the quality of its homegrown produce, but much more than that, offers diverse activities for visitors. East Kent was recently voted one of travel guide Frommers' Top 12 places to visit in the world for 2011, thanks to our miles of unspoilt coastline and off the beaten track destinations. Come for yourself to find out what everyone's talking about!
Explore historic Canterbury with its cathedral, city walls, restaurants, theatres and great shopping. Dover Castle is a fantastic day trip for families, both only 30 minutes from Broadstairs by car. Leeds Castle, and Deal and Walmer castles are also within easy reach, as is Whitstable where you can feast on local seafood, fresh off the boats, before exploring the town's wide range of interesting shops. Golfing enthusiasts will love Kent's award winning courses at Sandwich and North Foreland.
Broadstairs is on the High Speed Rail Link to London - with a direct link to Stratford International station, we are perfectly placed to visit the London 2012 Olympics. Kent has great transport links to London and mainland Europe, with making it the perfect starting point for a visit to England or abroad.
Broadstairs is situated on the tip of the East Kent coast, nestling between Ramsgate and Margate and boasts no fewer than seven sandy beaches. Locals believe that Broadstairs has its own microclimate, and is officially one of the sunniest and driest parts of the country!
Broadstairs has a seafaring past and is today a charming and unspoilt seaside resort - many remnants of our Victorian heritage can be found throughout the town. During the summer months, Viking Bay attracts families for its old-fashioned funfair and swingboats, punch and judy shows and fireworks displays, while neighbouring Stone Bay has fantastic rock pools. Nearby Joss Bay has some of the best waves in the area, with its own surf school and kayaks for hire.
The Hideaway is situated in the heart of Broadstairs' historic centre, amidst flint-walled houses dating from the 18th century and earlier, and is no more than a couple of minutes' walk from two wonderfully sandy beaches and a diverse mix of restaurants, bars, pubs, cafes, ice cream parlours, shops and museums. You won't need to use your car once you've arrived. Why not hire a beach hut for your stay? Telephone 01843 296111 for more details on daily or weekly hire.
When you're ready to leave the beach, Broadstairs offers many other attractions - the Palace Cinema, one of England's smallest with just 112 seats, mini golf, Helter Skelter, an indoor play centre for children under 8, Morelli's, an original 1950's ice cream parlour and many independent and quirky shops.
Older children will love Revolution, an indoor skatepark for skateboards, rollerblades and BMX. Why not learn about Charles Dickens' love of Broadstairs at the Dickens House museum? Westwood Cross retail park offers great shopping with stores such as TKMaxx, Debenhams, Monsoon, HMV, TopShop and Marks and Spencer, a multiplex cinema, casino and restaurants.
We love festivals here - Broadstairs' folk festival takes place in August each year, the town comes alive with folk music in every bar and morris dancers on every corner. Find out more at www.broadstairsfolkweek.org.uk
Broadstairs fourth annual food festival will take place in October 2012 and is a showcase for the best that Kent has to offer, with demonstrations by renowned local chefs, free tastings and stalls by local producers. We also host an annual Dickens festival each June celebrating Broadstairs' most famous visitor, with a water gala during the summer holidays.
Walk to Ramsgate along the coastal path to visit England's only Royal Harbour, with great waterfront bars, restaurants and cafes, or walk the Pugin trail to explore the venerated architect's work. The Turner Contemporary art gallery is now open on Margate's seafront with exhibitions by JMW Turner and Tracey Emin during 2012. Margate's Old Town is quickly becoming a mecca for fans of vintage and retro clothes, furniture, contemporary design and cupcakes, with independent shops opening all the time! Cycle the Viking Trail from Minnis Bay to Pegwell Bay to explore our unspoilt coastline and nature reserves.

The sash window mechanism has now been fixed and is in full working order and we have a new table and chairs in the courtyard. Most of our guests comment that the courtyard, although tiny, provides a lovely suntrap, especially in the mornings, and it's lovely to be able to open the back doors on a warm day.

"A wonderful stay!"
We stayed here in February this year and it was lovely. It was close to all amenities, the property was immaculate and very thoughtfully equipped. The owner had thought of absolutely everything - a real home from home! Would definitely recommend!

"Perfectly placed for a relaxing break."
The Hideaway is an excellently presented cottage in a quiet location yet is only a couple of minutes away from Viking Bay.Clare kept us well informed before our arrival and was available during our stay if needed.The accommodation was clean, well presented and welcoming. Although it was only the two of us everything was there for a family with children of any age. We were very lucky with the weather and we can honestly say our weekend break was a real refresher, just not long enough ! We'd
happily book The Hideaway again and would thoroughly
recommend it to anyone.Many Thanks !

"Lovely child friendly holiday home"
Just arrived back from a lovely long weekend at the hideaway. The house was lovely. It was set in a perfect location to explore Broad stairs. With beach being just a couple of minutes away by foot. The house was clean and well laid out as well as being very well equipped ( I arrived with toys, books, kids cups, towels etc only to find I needed none of them something we have never come across before when renting holiday homes. Our 4 and 6 year loved the toy chest, wide selection of DVD, books and the games pile. Lucy even had to have a go on the games console. The kids also loved running around in the garden. The house has lots of storage really well laid out bedrooms a well equipped kitchen with Dishwasher and washing machine. Tea towels, towels etc were all provided. There was everything a young family could need. Booking was made really easy by Claire. Claire also sent us a information pack about Broad stairs restaurants, things for kids etc which was really helpful, We managed to leave some clothes behind and Claire even sorted that out for us. We managed to park outside the house most days. The one day we could not we found lots of free parking in the street across the road. We would certainly love to return to the hideaway. Defiantly one for families. Broadstairs was lovely with fantastic beaches and lovely places to walk with the kids. Danny and lucy loved rock pooling exploring the caves and the ice cream parlor. Thanks Again Dave, Debbie, Danny and Lucy

"Great alternative to a caravan holiday"
Lovely place with everything you could need. Nice quiet road so didn't have to worry about people disturbing the kids at night (usually a nuisance at holiday parks). Parking was a bit tight but fine if not wanting to take the car out everyday, but everything in Broadstairs is in easy walking distance so you don't need to! Only used the garden once but it was nice and well maintained. Only downside was the steps down to the front door but we left the pushchair in the car so we didn't have to carry it down and they were useful for the keeping the kids from going out into the street!

"Great value in a great place"
We are a family of four - children aged 11 and 9. The Hideaway was easily big enough for us all; the rooms are spacious and nicely done. The flat has all that you need and is well equipped. We did not really use the 'secret garden' but it was nice to know it was there. We had not been to Broadstairs before and had a great time - the Hideaway is very well located. There is plenty to do for all tastes. Clare was very helpful with all of the booking arrangements and everything was very easy.
