This cottage has everything you could possibly need for a wonderful holiday. It is quietly situated yet so close to restaurants, cafes, fish and chip cafes and quaint shops. It is also close to the most famous pubs in Broadstairs. Tesco and Iceland stores and top quality butchers and bakers are a few minutes walk away. The beaches, the promenade and the attractions are all close by..

Margate, 10 minutes drive away offers the new Turner Contemporary Art Gallery and sandy beaches. Westwood Cross, a retail and entertainment complex is also a 10 minute drive away, and Canterbury is a great day out, with its historic cathedral, the many beautiful quirky buildings and an abundance of shops and cafes and is about 15 miles drive. Sandwich, a beautiful unspoiled historical town is about 20 minutes drive away and worth a visit. There is always plenty to do no matter what our English weather throws at us.

There is a delightfully quaint cinema in Broadstairs (Palace cinema) that shows a couple of films a day, but if you require more choice there is a cinema complex up at Westwood Cross, as well as a casino and bingo hall, shops restaurants and bars.

About this location

The Isle of Thanet region

With fast rail links to Ashford International and Ebbsfleet International, Europe is easily reached on Eurostar. The port of Dover is only 30 minutes drive away where you can hop on a ferry to France, and in March 2010 a new ferry service between Ramsgate and Boulogne is scheduled to start, making lunch in France a real possibility. Don't forget your passport! Historic Canterbury is only a 30 minute drive away, with it's spectacular cathedral, city walls, restaurants, shops and parks. You can take a boat trip on the river to see the sights from a different perspective. Step back in time at one of our nearby castles - Dover, Deal, Walmer, Leeds and Rochester Castles are all easily reached by car in under an hour. Kent is the Garden of England and our extensive coastline boasts an array of blue flag award winning beaches and thrilling watersports. Explore our beautiful countryside, discover country lanes, orchards, vineyards and oast houses. England's oldest county is up to the minute though, with leading edge galleries, theatre and entertaining night life giving you so many things to do. Kent boasts outstanding golf clubs, including the famous St Georges at Sandwich.


A stroll around Broadstairs is a journey of discovery with a lovely surprise around every corner. Our most famous resident was Charles Dickens who spent much time here, writing many of his classic novels here. Visit the Dickens Museum and watch out for costumed characters during our annual Dickens Week (June)! Walk around the Thanet coastline to explore our beautiful beaches and bays, each with its own character. Broadstairs' main beach is the unspoilt Viking Bay, no more than a minutes walk away from Sunshine Villa, where you can still see much of Broadstairs' Victorian heritage. Viking bay has a small harbour with cafes and giftshops, with plenty of rockpools for crabbing and exploring. An old fashioned beach funfair complete with helter skelter and swingboats, and a traditional punch and judy show twice a day in high season means that there's plenty to keep everyone entertained. The Pavilion offers beachside drinks and lunches and you don't have to walk far to find fish and chips to eat on the beach! Joss Bay is more rural and offers great surfing opportunities (check out Joss Bay Surf School), whilst Botany Bay is quieter and more secluded and can feel a million miles from anywhere - absolute bliss when you want to laze around and recharge your batteries. Drive south to Pegwell Bay Nature Reserve for birdwatching and wild ponies. Although Broadstairs has kept much of its old fashioned charm and tranquility, we have a vibrant calendar of events ranging from the annual Dickens Festival (June), Water Gala (July) and Folk Week (Aug) to a great free summer entertainment programme with a weekly firework display during the school summer holidays. Broadstairs also hosts its own annual Food Festival in October, featuring local producers and restaurants, with free tastings and cookery demonstrations by top chefs. For full details go to There are a mouth-watering number of restaurants, bistros, cafes and pubs to choose from - you could eat your way around the world. Visit Ramsgate's Royal Harbour for a taste of the Mediterranean (on a sunny day!), to take out a boat for seal watching or sea fishing, or just to watch the boats from its many cafes and bars. Ramsgate and Margate host their own annual festivals and events - go to for more inspiration. For more activities for children go to

Half of the deposit was offered back to these guests due to damaged items and many smaller items missing. No charge is incurred for excessive extra cleaning. At the time they seemed very apologetic.
