Broadstairs holiday apartment
About the home
The apartment occupies the ground floor of a Victorian house in a lovely residential road. It was extensively renovated recently and has a contemporary feel. We grew tired of renting holiday properties that were a little 'jaded' and wanted something of a high standard that we can use as well as our guests. This is our first summer renting as a holiday flat so most things are new and we hope that our guests can enjoy the home comforts whilst relaxing and being in a beautiful seaside resort.
On arrival we will have a welcome package for you-some basics to make it easy-tea, coffee, sugar, milk bread and wine of course! We also have some books and a few dvds to get you started. My daughter has donated some of her games so there is something for the little ones as well as blackout curtains in the second bedroom!
We hope we have thought of everything but please let us know if there is anything we have missed.
The living room has a 3 seater leather sofa, armchair and 2 seater sofa bed which we find very comfortable. The larger of the 2 bedrooms has a quality double bed for a comfortable night's sleep so you can enjoy the next day, and a large triple wardrobe. The other bedroom has a single bed with a second pull out bed underneath giving more flexibility to sleep close or even move to another room. The bathroom has a contemporary design with bath and shower. At the rear, the kitchen is joined via sliding patio doors to a sunny conservatory / dining room. The conservatory door opens on to a decking area and garden so you can eat al fresco if the weather is fine.

The South East England / Kent region
Kent is widely known as the Garden of England. As well as the attractive scenery and blue flag award winning beaches, Kent has many iconic landmarks such as Canterbury Cathedral, Leeds Castle and the White Cliffs of Dover. In East Kent, you can find diverse attractions such as Port Lympne Animal Park, the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate and Sandwich Golf Course (host of the 2011 British Open).
You can also experience a seal encounter out at sea, ride on vintage trains, watch county cricket at Canterbury or shop at Ashford Designer Outlet Centre. Not forgetting you are handily placed for a day trip across the Channel.
The Broadstairs area
Broadstairs is a hidden gem. The town lies above a harbour with cliffs on either side and has seven bays of golden sand. It has been a seaside resort since Victorian times and oozes history and charm. It has links with the novelist Charles Dickens: he wrote David Copperfield in Bleak House overlooking the harbour. The Broadstairs Charles Dickens festival is held annually in June in his honour. Another very popular festival is Broadstairs Folk Week in August. Broadstairs boasts a wide range of cafes and restaurants from traditional fish and chips to ethnic cuisines.
The sea front has more cafes, ice cream parlours and amusement arcades (our nine year daughter describes Morellis as ‘the best cafe in the world’) , and on the beach in summer there are donkey rides and Punch and Judy shows for the kids. It also has a quaint hundred seat cinema by the harbour for when the sun goes in!

The cottage is clean, comfortable and nice. We received a hamper, thank you. It is easy to park the car. The place is very nice, Broadstairs is beautiful, People are friendly in Broadstairs, The cottage is well equiped for cooking and there is a pretty garden front the kitchen. It is not far from the coast and town centre without car, we enjoyed our promenade.
Do not hesitate to stop for a short break in the cottage, just to stop the time, good air, calm, nice place and hear the sea...

This apartment is great value. Well fitted and kitted out - been to too many that had 4 cups 4 glasses and a saucepan. Recently re-fitted too. Owners were very helpful before and during the visit - very patient too when we could not turn the heating on. Good tip - read the house notes in the living room when you arrive!
Broadstairs is lovely. Good range of restaurants in town and bigger towns are close if you want more. Use a satnav or take a map to get around Broadstairs.The town centre/seafront is quite small but the town itself is quite extensive so knowing your route especially if walking would be useful. Modern shopping centre is 10 mins away - clinical and chain shoppie but if you need retail therapy there it is! Town centre has independent shops. Well cooked and simple food, independently owned Aqua 43 restaurant is great if you want an economic family meal.

We were here for a long weekend, and really enjoyed staying in this apartment. It is nicely furnished and has a lovely garden at the back. We really appreciated the welcome pack and the games and toys for our 3 yr old to play with. Hope to be back next year.
