|Further details outdoors|
There is no outside space at 'Little Star of the Sea' however we feel that the location and its proximity to the beach and Victoria Gardens makes access to outdoor space nice and easy.
There is no parking outside the property due to its central location. We can however provide guests with parking vouchers at a small additional cost. These allow parking in most of the street bays and car parks in the town, including parking on Victoria Parade. Please let me know should you require these and I can arrange them prior to your arrival.
The apartment would be described as petit and therefore great as a base for a couple exploring the local town and surrounding areas. We have had a family of 4 stay before and they really enjoyed it, however I would only recommend families with small children who can sleep together in a small sofa bed in the living space. we are now able to supply a travel cot, but please bring your own bedding. Please note due to the apartments size, you will need to fold down the cot during the day to maximise the space.
The Isle of Thanet region
Kent is known as 'the garden of England' for the quality of its homegrown produce, but aside from its outstanding food and drink, it offers diverse activities for visitors. Broadstairs now boasts its very own annual Food Festival in October. This festival attracts around 15,000 people and is a real celebration of the quality and diversity of food and drink being produced in Kent. This year the festival will take place on the weekend of the 4th,5th and 6th of October, a must for food and drink lovers!
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 (approx 80 mins.) - with a direct link to Stratford International station, we are perfectly placed for shopping and touristic days out, without the cost and hassle of parking.
Kent has great transport links to London and mainland Europe. It is a fantastic holiday choice for both beach and countryside lovers.
Broadstairs, also known as the 'Jewel in Thanet's Crown' is a pretty seaside town sandwiched between Margate and Ramsgate.
For those who appreciate beautiful natural light, the artist Turner remarked to the influential writer and art critic John Ruskin that “…the skies over Thanet are the loveliest in all Europe”.
The unique quality of light in this part of Kent drew Turner back time and again.The surrounding areas boast 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, vintage ice cream parlour 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. Walkers and cyclists can take advantage of the 27 mile long Viking Trail that runs between Margate and Ramsgate with breathtaking views of the local coastline and villages.
'Little Star of the Sea' is situated in the heart of Broadstairs' historic centre, centrally placed on a peaceful residential street just off the sea front. It is no more than a couple of minutes' walk from Viking Bay and a diverse mix of restaurants, bars, pubs, micro breweries, cafes, ice cream parlours, shops and museums. You won't need to use your car once you've arrived.
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, Oscars Festival Cafe, a little gem of an eatery and many independent and quirky shops.
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. There is alsoTwo 24hr supermarkets and lots of other large retail stores just out of town but most of your daily shopping can be done on the well equipped high street.
For music lovers - 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. More recently, a new festival called Broadstairs Blues Bash takes place in February, bringing the best of the Blues from local, national and international acts. Find out more at www.broadstairsbluesbash.com
Broadstairs fourth annual food festival will take place in October 2013 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. Last years festival broke all attendance records with soaring temperatures for October 2010. A maximum temperature of 29.9 °C was recorded at Gravesend (Kent). 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. The gallery run activities for children on most days during the holidays and Margate's Old Town is quickly becoming an excellent choice for fans of vintage and retro clothes, furniture, contemporary design and cupcakes, with independent shops opening all the time! If you love vintage, you will love Margate Old Town.

"Nice little flat"
Nice little flat, great location, clean, would recommend to couples, we had a baby with us and probably a tad small for getting a cot up but the owners were really helpful and we had a lovely couple o… More
Many thanks for taking the time to review the apartment, especially commenting on your experience with your baby. I do always highlight the size to guests and the difficulties of not being able to place the cot in the bedroom or indeed in the lounge during the day before I take a booking. For those on a budget and without a baby sitter, the apartment offers a stay away and the ability to cook and stay in, but it is certainly a compromise on space. The apartment is at its best for up to 2 persons staying at a time. Thank you for highlighting this in your review.
Very best wishes

"Excellently located flat by the sea"
Fantastic place to stay to fully experience Broadstairs - excellent central location, comfortable and clean flat, quiet and easy to find. The owners were quick and friendly in their communication and provided all the information required. Everything needed was supplied in the flat and it felt cosy yet clean and fresh. Would definitely return and recommend both the flat and Broadstairs - check out The Chapel for the best wine and cheese.
What a lovely review! so glad you enjoyed 'Little Star' and used it as a great place to explore Broadstairs. Thanks for putting up a recommendation for food and drink too. We hope to welcome you again soon. Many thanks.

"Beautiful stay, thank you"
This was my second time at Little Star of the Sea, I was so excited to come back! I am hoping it will become an annual mini escape from work and kids, I love it so much. Broadstairs is a perfect little place, lots of good charity shops and book shops to potter around, some great places to eat and I even made it to the tiny cinema. Not to mention the stunning beach and some great running routes along the coast. The apartment is immaculate and cosy, a real retreat and a home from home. I will be back next year definitely!
Thank you very much for your feedback on your stay at 'Little Star of the Sea'. It is great to have guests returning again after enjoying their stay. We would love to have you back next year for another relaxing retreat. Warm wishes Ruth.
