The Lookout 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 beautifully maintained private shared garden for the sole use of residents of Devonshire Terrace. The garden offers benches, a summer house, and plenty of space for a barbecue or for children to play! As the garden is shared, we ask that guests use it with consideration and respect.
It's a truly unique location as it is strikingly tranquil yet really central - so close to the beach and centre of Broadstairs.
We are unable to offer off-street parking, but there is unrestricted parking in the road outside The Lookout, and in neighbouring streets. In addition, there is a pay and display car park less than one minute's walk away. Thanet District Council offers a one week visitors permit for £20 which allows unrestricted parking in most pay and display car parks in the area.
About this location
The Isle of Thanet region
The area of 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.
The area of 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 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 Lookout is situated in the heart of Broadstairs' historic centre, amidst 18th century flint-walled houses, and is no more than a couple of minutes' walk from two wonderful 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.
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.
