"Perfect for our family holiday"
This was our first trip away with two children (2 1/2 and 8 months) and Seagull Cottage couldn't have suited us better. The house itself is beautiful, retaining Victorian character with all modern conveniences, very tastefully decorated and comfortable at the same time. There was plenty of room inside and in the long sunny garden for our family of four.
We spent most of our time in Broadstairs and Kingsgate which are both a short drive away (and walkable if you don't mind a long walk - Botany Bay 30 mins and Viking Bay 45 mins) and did a couple of day trips to nearby Whitsable and Sandwich.
Fully intend to book for next summer.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for your positive comments. I would love to welcome you back. There is a beach only a 10-15 minute walk away from the cottage at Joss Bay with its beach shop and cafe, kiddies corner and the Joss Bay Surf School.

Travelled the May holiday with husband and two children. Seagull Cottage was everything and so much more. Comfortable, spacious and clean. The children especially enjoyed the basement. It was only a 5 minute drive to Joss Bay, where my 10 year old daughter enjoyed her surf lessons with Joss Bay Surf Club, even though the weather was terrible. Despite the weather, we had a fantastic time and would have already recommended to my friends. Looking forward to another enjoyable stay soon.

"The perfect Holiday home"
Seagull Cottage was an absolute delight! A perfect base to explore the Isle of Thanet.
The owners had thought of everything, even including an apron and shopping bags! Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend and look foward to visiting again.
