Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Situated just 5-10 minutes walk from the beach, this charming period detached bungalow with large garden is the perfect location for a traditional British seaside holiday. Score cottage has a unique "retro-chic" style - the sink unit was once a sewing machine stand, the cabinets were wine boxes, the mantle piece was a bit of boat jetty. Watch Punch and Judy while enjoying an ice cream from the word famous Morellis ice cream parlour then enjoy the quirky shops cafes and restaurants dotted through the beautiful small streets which are almost unchanged since the reign of Queen Victoria.
Lonely Planet says: “quaint little Broadstairs just quietly gets on with what it's done best for the last 150 years – wowing visitors with its tight sickle of reddish sand and sun-warmed lapping sea. Dickens certainly though Viking Bay a pretty spot, making several visits between 1837 and 1859”

In Kent's north-east corner discover 15 gorgeous beaches and bays, exhilarating cliff-top hikes and time-warp villages. Take up high-octane watersports, ranging from kite-surfing to kayaking. Explore an intriguing history spanning 6th century saints and WWII Spitfires - via Charles Dickens connections, serene churches and a curio-packed stately home.
On the Isle of Thanet you'll get sand between your toes and sea views wrapped around your soul. Expand your horizons by encountering exciting modern art, drink in vast sunset views, stroll new-to-you bays, linger in stylish spots to eat and drink.

"Lovely cottage in a beautiful location"
Stayed here in July with a young family. Had never visited the area and was unsure what to expect but we had the most fantastic holiday. The cottage itself was perfect, so comfortable, with lots of lovely touches in the retro decor. The owners could not have been more helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Nothing was too much trouble. There is so much to do in beautiful Broadstairs and the surrounding area that we were spoiled for choice. We will definitely be back and will be recommending Score Cottage to all our friends and family.
