The Isle of Thanet region
The nearby city of Canterbury with its narrow lanes, famous cathedral, the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and the church of St Martin - England's oldest parish church - make up the city's Worlds Heritage Site.
Closer to Brodstairs is Ramsgate, home to the only ‘Royal’ Harbour in the country with a sparkling marina, the Maritime Museum, award-winning sandy beach, cater-for-all town centre and clifftops that beg to be rambled.
There are many cafes and pubs scattered along the waterfront and if you are feeling adventurous you can take a pleasureboat cruise around the harbour or venture further afield and explore the sandbanks and seal colonies that sit just off our coastline. You can even take a ferry crossing to Ostende in Belgium with Transeuropa Ferries.
Margate is a timeless seaside resort where traditional seaside fun and entertainment sits happily alongside modern water sports and exciting new developments. Margate Old Town is a must, housed in a 17th Century building is the intriguing local history museum, a great contrast to the new galleries and individual shops that are shaping the resort’s growing cultural quarter.
In nearby Manston you can visit the Spitfire Museum which fantastically illustrates Britain’s great aviation heritage and memories of the Battle of Britain.
Beautiful Broadstairs was voted "second only to St Ives" as the best seaside resort in The UK's Guardian Newspaper in a Reader and Critics poll in July 2007 and is just one of many award this popualr seaside towns has won.
June 2008 saw the area of Thanet named as the jewel in England's coastal crown, with Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Margate being given 10 Blue Flag awards for the cleanliness of the water and sands and high standards of facilities and safety.
A stroll around Broadstairs reveals quirky little lanes where tiny flint houses and fishermen’s cottages nestle amongst a variety of unusual local shops and boutiques.
The town's quaint high street leads onto a promenade with landscaped gardens overlooking one of seven beautiful beaches, each one offering something different. The resorts main beach, Viking Bay, has a small harbour, children’s amusements, a victorian bathing pool and amenities including showers and lifeguards all on the golden sands. Joss Bay is larger sandy beach set against the white cliffs perfect for boogie borading kayaking and with its very own surf school and beach cafe. Botany Bay is quieter and more secluded as are Stone Bay, Kingsgate Bay, Louisa Palm and Dumpton Gap are all within easy walking distance and offering an unprecedented choice of beaches.
The quiet charm of Broadstairs belies the entertainment opportunities there. The resort has a full calendar of events from the annual Dickens Festival and Folk week to a great free summer entertainment program including firework displays, guided walks, Jazz, Blues and Country festivals along with many workshops, a Craft Fair and a full Children's Program. And there are a mouth-watering number of restaurants, bistros, cafes and pubs to choose from.
In addition there are 3 major supermarkets, a new Shopping centre and retail park and a Casino within 3 miles of Broadstairs Town Centre. All are easily accessible by car, taxi and local buses.

"TOTALLY UNSUITABLE for families or any self catering!"
I guess this must be the ONLY self catering apartment in this area that does NOT have WiFi! Rather inconvenient. . . .If you plan on cooking or eating in this apartment, please make sure you bring o… More
Having had lots of happy guests for several years now, we are extremely disappointed to hear these comments, especially as we feel they do not give a fair and accurate representation of the property.
We are always grateful to get constructive guest feedback and we act upon it immediately - the few bannister struts that must have been very recently damaged were repaired within 48hours of this guest leaving (a Christmas stay meant it was the first time possible to get repairs done). Similarly to say the bathroom is dangerous due to a crack in the bath panel, also being addressed, is not correct.
Unfortunately things do get damaged and we are quick to review and repair and ensure the flat is perfectly fit for purpose and well equipped for all our guests, but sadly we are quite baffled by the some of the comments here. The kitchen cookware equipment is clean. Whilst we apologised for complaints made directly to us about a damaged non-stick pan and a chipped glass, when they are merely 2 items in a well equipped kitchen the criticism does not reflect the general good order of the apartment. Additionally confusing is criticism for no wifi when the flat has never advertised the service, as is the comment that all properties in the area have wifi when this is not true.
We take seriously the fact that a guest did not find the flat to their complete liking, but to state the flat is 'totally unsuitable' for families and any self catering is unfairly misrepresentative and distinctly at odds with the view of the multitudes of families who have us been our guests to date.
