This is a friendly "home from home" where we have tried to provide everything you need to relax in comfort, and have a great holiday. There is ample storage, a large living room, lots of light, and a well equipped kitchen with a large fridge freezer. We can accommodate 5 adults together with an additional infant in a cot or additional child if two children are happy to share the third bedroom with a single bedside table and lamp between them. We can provide a cot and/or a highchair if needed and we have "blackout" blinds behind the curtains in two of the bedrooms to help children to sleep.

The pretty enclosed private rear garden is west facing and there are chairs, a sun shade and some beach items in the large shed where you can store any bicycles or other large equipment that you may wish to bring with you. We suggest that you store golf equipment in the cupboard under the stairs in the house where again there is plenty of room.
Conveniently given its central location, the property has off street parking for one vehicle and further parking on the street nearby. Children are most welcome and catered for. We request no pets and no smoking.

The Isle of Thanet region
Many claim that the Isle of Thanet in Kent "is in fact nothing less than the place where English history began". It was in Pegwell Bay in 597AD that St Augustine arrived with his gift of Christianity. It was here that the Vikings and Romans landed, where Napoleon would have arrived and here lay the country's first line of defence during the second world war. Whether you would like to visit some amazing castles, stunning gardens or breathtaking scenery, this area has it all.
The unique location gives Thanet a more temperate climate than other parts of the country and the area boasts 15 sandy beaches, 10 of which hold the prestigious Blue Flag award.
A brilliant way to discover the coastline and country side is by cycling the Viking Coastal trail, a 43.5km (27 mile) route suitable for experienced and novice cyclists. Visit www.vikingcoastaltrail.co.uk for further information. The house is situated just of the trail and we have a garden shed to store your bicycles.
We keep a range of local attraction information leaflets at the house for your use, or to plan your activities in advance, contact the local tourist information office on 0870 264 6111.
Broadstairs is a traditional English seaside town. Think buckets and spades, cafes with great views, delicious Italian ice cream and fish and chips ate out of the wrappers overlooking the seafront!! In a recent survey Broadstairs came second only to St Ives when it comes to English seaside holiday destinations. It has everything! There is a traditional high street with a good variety of independent retailers, together with many fabulous restaurants, pubs, cafes and bars. There is easy lift access to Viking Bay beach, great town gardens, and often in the summer months, great music in the bandstand.
Further afield in one direction there is Margate with its old town, new Turner Contemporay Museum and thriving art scene and in the other direction is Ramsgate with its cafe lined harbour in the other.
The coast at Broadstairs is spectacular for walking and cycling, with great walks along the promenade and rides along the cliff tops.
Great golf courses locally include the famous Sandwich Bay course – but try some of the more local courses which are all very good. Please contact us to find further details and prices for courses in the immediate area
All the beaches on this coast are sandy.
Louisa Bay - Derek's cafe (outside) Great breakfasts/lunches weekends Easter to Sept and daily as well in August hols. Promenade to sit at high tide. Launch for kayaks.

"Fantastic family home from home in lovely location"
I travelled with my family - 4 young children aged from 4 to 11, and it was a perfect home for us all. Set up is very like any family home, with all modern conveniences, plenty of bathroom space, and a lovely garden. We could walk down to Broadstairs town and beach, and there is plenty of information in the accommodation on things to do in the Broadstairs area. We followed one of the walks another guest had recommended (guest book was an excellent idea - we could see what other families had enjoyed!), and had a great time enjoying the coast. Ice cream parlour is amazing and plenty of restaurants to choose from (but might be worth booking, they did get busy). House was really comfortable, clean and well appointed. I will definitely be going back again - we stayed a long weekend and would love to do more next time (and we didn't even get in the car once!)
