The Isle of Thanet region
Kent has a haven of traditional English countryside.With rolling hills, wooded valleys and far reaching open landscapes you will be spoilt for choice for a summer picnic spot or crisp autumnal stroll.
If you visit Kent would not be complete without taking the time to appreciate the famous tales of Canterbury and Rochester and paying a visit to some of the towns and villages sitting at the heart of the county. For a more active way to unwind, Kent's 12 blue flag beaches offer many opportunities to take part in water sports.
Broadstairs is a coastal town on the Isle of Thanet in east Kent, England, about 80 miles (130 km) south-east of London. It is one of Thanet's seaside resorts, known as the "Jewel in Thanet's crown". The town lies above a harbour with cliffs on either side. It has seven bays of golden sand, which are Dumpton Gap, Louisa Bay, Viking Bay, Stone Bay, Joss Bay, Kingsgate Bay and Botany Bay. Broadstairs has a very mild maritime climate.
Broadstairs is a wonderful mixture of Victorian architecture, hidden cobbled squares, cliff top walks and sandy beaches. Our shops still offer a personal service with a range of goods and gifts that independent stores do so well. Delicatessens and local butchers: bakers and grocers; unique clothes, gifts, books, antiques and even a Teddy Bear hospital.
Broadstairs is not only a summer resort but a great place to spend time in the winter. With Halloween events and firework displays through out the local area and beyond it's a good time to have break away from home. The Viking Trail is a good enough reason in itself to visit Broadstairs, a cycling and walking route showing the best of Kent's coastline. A Coast for all Seasons!
The summer holidays may have slipped away, but our coast is still lively and open for inspirational fun at great attractions. Get a cultural fix at Turner Contemporary, or immerse yourself in compelling World War II history at the Spitfire and Hurricane Memorial Museum – all for free. Relive childhood magic at the Hornby Visitor Centre, or follow the adventures of Major Powell-Cotton in Africa and Asia at The Powell-Cotton Museum, Quex House and Gardens.
FEBRUARY - Broadstairs Blues Bash is a Blues music festival which is now into its sixth year.
APRIL - Broadstairs Food Festival pops up for the Easter Weekend with over 50 stalls of Kent's food, drink and craft. -
JUNE - The Broadstairs Dickens Festival is held annually in honour of the novelist Charles Dickens in the third week of June.
JULY - Whitstable Oyster Festival - Most Oyster Festival events for families are either free or very subsidised. You will find traditional pastimes like crabbing, kite flying, chalking and Punch and Judy plus workshops, explorations, and street entertainment.

"Great house in the perfect location"
A lovely house in a very quiet but central loction, with the most helpful and hospitable hosts you are likely to find.
19 Apr 2015
"A Broadstairs Gem!"
We had a wonderful and a very comfortable stay at the Shorley Wall. Have no complaints or even suggestions to make. Gina our host was very kind and considerate with all her little touches - from a delicious home made cake to providing us with a copy of the latest property paper. The house itself has everything you need and all very practical and clean. I cooked a full roast dinner on Easter Sunday with ease. It was a perfect house for our little family. The location is perfect for the town and the beach and is also very close with easy drives to neighbouring towns and beaches for further exploration. I couldn't recommend Shorley Wall highly enough and would definitely stay there again. Thank you to Gina and Terry.

"Well maintained house in great location"
This is the second time I've stayed at the property, both times during Folk Week. It's ideal because although in a quiet location, it's no more than a five minute walk into town, making it ideal during a noisy folk festival! The house has a great outside space (enclosed garden with plenty of chairs and tables and a conservatory where you can eat). Gina H, the owner, makes every effort to equip the house with everything and anything you need (unlike my previous stay last year, where there wasn't even a teabag or a shake of salt!). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to families and groups of friends.

"Very comfortable, excellent location, lovely secluded garden and off road parking."
We had just 3 days here and wished we could stay longer. The house was immaculately clean and well stocked with crockery and personal touches. The bed was very comfortable and the leather sofas too. Lovely little secluded garden with new furniture for sitting outside and enjoying the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. It was just 5 minutes walk to the town centre and the beaches so no worries about finding a parking space as the car could be left at the house on the driveway, A major advantage. Gina was really welcoming and left us milk and choc chip cookies, as well as an ample supply of tea, coffee and sugar. There was also a sachet of a delicious organic tea from the locally based Rosie Lea tea company. There was Sky TV and free wi-fi so we had everythign we needed and more. Highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay at Shorley Wall over the 2013 Christmas period. The owners, Gina & Terry have provided a lovely clean & cosy house which was equipped with everything we could have possibly needed, including the Christmas tree! There are also thoughtful extras, in our case, some spiced Christmas tea and delicious cookies. Shorley Wall is also conveniently located in a peaceful cul de sac, yet is only a few minutes walk into town and offers excellent accommodation for friends and family alike. All-in-all, we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Shorley Wall and would like to thank Gina & Terry for their excellent hospitality.

"A Great Place to Stay"
Shorley Wall has pretty much every thing in it’s favour. A property with 3 good sized bedrooms, nice family lounge, spacious kitchen & conservatory. It has a secluded courtyard garden, and off road parking. All this and just a 5 min walk to the beautiful Viking Beach

"Wonderful and very homely, good location"
Came over from Holland to spend a week (27 April - 4 May 2013) at Shorley Wall in Broadstairs. Just loved the house and the location. House was well equipped, everything you needed was there, very spacious. Very clean and the beds were super. There are lovely books, dvd's and a Wii game. The garden is lovely, quiet and very private. Walking distance from the town centre and the beaches. At the house there's lots of information about what to do/see in Broadstairs and The Isle of Thanet. Gina made us feel very welcome, she had made a Victorian sponge for us, which I thought was just lovely. And a welcome package, very thoughtful. Loved the shop around the corner, very handy, very nice people. Broadstairs is just great, good choice of restaurants and pubs. Easy access to London by train (only took us 1 hours 20 minutes). We just had a super holiday and love to come back one time. Gina thank you for making us feel welcome. Derk Jan, Annemieke, Laura & Danielle de Boer

"Perfect location for a holiday home"
A roomy house perfect for a family. Lots of inhouse entertainment provided with the added bonus of wifi. Bedrooms of a good size, all with plenty of storage space. A perfect location handy for the beach and the town. Space for 2 cars to park which is rare in Broadstairs where parking is limited and expensive. The welcome pack was a nice touch as was the provision of cleaning materials etc as not usually provided in other properties I've stayed in.

"Home from Home"
This holiday let was in an ideal location, short walk to the beach/sea front. Car journey to some lovely places to visit & eat. Really great base for holiday. House itself was spotless and really spacious. We had two babies, a toddler and two teenagers and still had plently of room. Everything is laid out for you & every need catered for, have to say we all left saying we would love to come back & would have stayed longer. Best of all is Gina herself, lovely lady (Thank you Gina) & pleasure to deal with. Great break, thanks. PS, Beds were sooo comfortable, needed to mention them.

"Relaxing holiday home, in an excellent location"
We enjoyed a very pleasant week at Thorley Wall. The house is close to the beach, the local High St & all of Broadstairs many restaurants. It is spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. Gina is a warm and welcoming host, and we look forward to staying there again. Michelle J
