The South East England / Kent region
Located on the south east tip of Kent, Broadstairs offers a plethora of potential to holidaymakers. For those who like a boat trip there are nearby daily ferries to Ostend and Calais. For the golfer numerous award winning courses within a short drive, including Sandwich and North Foreland (handicap certificate required at certain courses). Families are treated to over 26miles of glorious golden sandy beaches. History hungry holidaymakers can feast on the delights of Deal, Dover Castle and the historic town of Canterbury - all accessible within a 40 min drive.
The bustling harbour of Ramsgate is a 5min drive, Margate, home to the new Turner Gallery is 15mins drive. Both offer regular summer events ranging from Water sports weekends to Red Devils displays.
Full details of all summer events in the area are available at The Beach House in the "Busy Broadstairs Booklet"
The Broadstairs / Dumpton Gap area
Broadstairs is considered to be the jewel in Thanet's crown, a very special place in 'The Garden of England'. A charming seaside town with a host of fabulous family friendly activities. For activities for children go to www.thanetkids.co.uk
Throughout the summer months, the ever popular Viking bay hosts daily Punch and Judy shows, and offers a small Victorian carousel, trampolines, bouncy castle and swing park. Nestled behind Viking Bay is a crazy golf course, suitable for both children and adults.
The family style sandy beaches of Broadstairs are very clean and offer fantastic rock pools, beach cafe's and toilet facilities.
Each bay has it's own unique character, Viking Bay - the popular tourist beach, Stone Bay - great family beach mainly used by locals who have their own beach huts, Joss Bay - surfers favourite, Louisa Bay - small pretty beach, tide dependant but always a bacon sarnie available from the beach cafe! And then we come to Dumpton Bay which is the nearest to the Beach House - We love this beach as it's quite quiet with mainly locals using it. The beach cafe is run by Mark and Leslie, a fantastic couple who always greet you with a smile! You can also walk along the beach from Dumpton Gap to Ramsgate (Tide dependent) which is a great stroll! They have just started having live music on occasional weekends which is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
When the weather is inclement, there's Revolution skate park with a climbing centre and surf school which offers day courses for children from as young as 3yrs. Learn to board, ski, climb, or scoot with the professionals in a safe and fun environment.
Joss Bay holds a blue flag award. The coast here has some of the best waves in the area so its no surprise it also has its own surf school. Kayaks can be hired.
The Viking Coastal trail is a fabulous cycle route from Minnis Bay to Pegwell Bay. Bikes can easily be hired and you can either opt for a day of cycling or a shorter ride along the coast.
Westwood Cross shopping centre (5mins from centre of Broadstairs) offers great shopping with Topshop, Marks and Spencer, TK Max, HMV, Waterstones and several good family style restaurants such as Ask Pizzeria and Nandos. There's also a large Vue multiplex cinema adjacent to Westwood, although Broadstairs itself boasts a tiny charming cinema the Palace which only closes on Christmas Day.
For the more mature holidaymaker, there are numerous walks and day trips in and around the area.
With the Dickins Festival (June), Folk Week (August) there really is something for everyone....not to mention some of the best fish and chips in the land.
Broadstairs also now hosts its own Food Festival in October, which features free tastings and cookery demonstrations by top chefs. For full details go to www.broadstairsfoodfestival.org

We were very pleased with this lovely apartment. It was very clean, very quiet and very modern. The garden was an added extra with comfy seating. With secure parking for the car and lift and stairs to the apartment. Ideal for a couple or a family. Near enough to walk to the beach. Also for the town for an evening meal, but we did cheat and park the car half way and walk the rest of the way in the evenings. Thank you for sharing it with us.
