Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
STUNNING VIEWS! The apartment is located just a few minutes' walk from both the shops and restaurants in Ramsgate and its clean, unspoilt sandy beach. The apartment is in a Grade 2 listed building overlooking the harbour, a great place to relax and unwind. Ramsgate itself is an undiscovered gem, a pretty seaside resort with the only Royal harbour in England and plenty of activities to explore in the vicinity - cycling, nature reserves, walks and sunbathing on the beach, bags of history and architecture as well as shopping, restaurants, pavement cafes and nightclubs.
The apartment is large, with spectacular sea views over the harbour from lounge and kitchen. The lounge is well equipped with dining table and chairs, two sofas, flat screen TV, DVD and music centre with a supply of DVDs. There is a good free internet connection.

The bedroom has a king-sized comfortable bed, twin bedside tables with bedside lights and plenty of room for clothes storage in the wardrobe and large chest of drawers. The original fireplace, deep red velvet curtains and cream carpet create a warm and private space. As it's at the back of the apartment, the bedroom is quiet and peaceful. All bed linen is provided for your stay.
The spacious kitchen has an electric hob and oven, fridge/freezer and washer/dryer, microwave, kettle and toaster, another table and chairs and also has more seating next to the window with direct sea views.

The South East England region
Kent is England's oldest county with ancient towns and villages, rolling grassland and agriculture and beautiful stretches of coast and sandy beaches. Kent is known as the Garden of England, with a beautiful coastline boasting a number of blue flag award winning beaches and watersport activities. Explore the rambling countryside, discover winding lanes, orchards, vineyards and oast houses. Kent offers superb opportunities for walking and cycling in delightful surroundings, including the North Downs and the High Weald. There are some fabulous historic places to visit in Kent: Knole Park, in Sevenoaks, is a magnificent 1000 acre deer park and home to the 16th century Knole House. Other sites of interest in Kent include Hever Castle, childhood home of Anne Boleyn, Leeds Castle, 'The Loveliest Castle in the World', and ancient Canterbury. Canterbury, with its stunning cathedral, city walls, wealth of restaurants, cool bars and great shopping is only a 30 minute drive away. Easily accessible too are Dover, Deal, Sandwich, Walmer, Leeds and Rochester castles - all of these are readily reached by car in under an hour.
Shopping facilities in Kent are plentiful with regular food and craft markets held in many of the towns and villages. There are extensive shopping centres in the larger towns and cities, including the Westwood Cross centre in Margate, which has all the big stores, including M&S, Debenhams and River Island, but why not keep it local and the local shops in business? There are really good local food shops in Ramsgate itself.
For guests who like golf, there is a good range of links golf courses within easy reach of the apartment including the championship courses of St. George at Sandwich, and Deal, both of which are less than 10 miles away.
Ramsgate is on the Isle of Thanet – so called because it used to be virtually separated from the mainland by rivers and marshland. Ramsgate itself is an undiscovered gem, a pretty seaside resort with the only Royal harbour in England and plenty of activities to explore in the vicinity – cycling, nature reserves, golf, walks and sunbathing on the beach, bags of history and architecture as well as shopping, restaurants, pavement cafes and nightclubs. Just a few minutes' walk from The Moorings, you can stroll to Ramsgate Sands and, at low tide you can walk 20 minutes on the sand to the picturesque Viking Bay in Broadstairs, famous home of Dickens or turning right, to Pegwell Bay, a nature reserve, well known for its orchids, nature walks and picnic sites.
Ramsgate is a perfect place for biking, with well planned cycle routes along the coast. There are plenty of good local restaurants –Bon Appetit, a decent French restaurant on Royal Parade, the Surin, serving Thai food, and the Michelin recommended Age and Sons offering sophisticated grub and a slinky cocktail bar in the basement, all within 10 minutes' walk. If you're watching the pennies, treat yourself to fresh fish and chips from Peter's fish factory near the harbour for under £3 and eat it under the stars! 'Foodies' can visit Quex Barn in Birchington, a 10 minute drive, for a wide selection of local produce from local suppliers all under one roof. It also has a great restaurant, open daily. Tempting snacks are plentiful, including The Galley on Royal Parade, the recently opened Caboosh in Queen Street and the Custom House with its sparkling chandeliers and fabulous Sunday roasts.
Boat trips run from the harbour, 2 minutes from the apartment in good weather to see the seal colonies, the local wind farm or Goodwin Sands. If you are really adventurous, you could hire a yacht and go sailing, or go to Dover for a day trip to France.
Ramsgate is lined with stately, red-brick Victorian and Georgian buildings overlooking over the harbour. The harbour has witnessed troops embarking for the Napoleonic Wars, visits by royalty - George IV granted the harbour its unique Royal status - the miracle of the Dunkirk little ships and from nearby Pegwell Bay, the world's first international hovercraft service. While the Georgian harbour remains virtually unchanged, a new ferry port has been added and floating marinas encourage a wide variety of vessels.
The Spitfire and Hurricane Memorial Museum and the RAF Manston History Museum are not far from the town and if this is an interest of yours, visit Michael's bookshop on Queen Street and look at his wide selection of books on local history, including the wartime tunnel network that lies underneath the town – it is fascinating! You can't usually go down them anymore, but can see the old entrances in various parts of Ramsgate.
The town has a great mix of larger well known stores (including a Waitrose) and small independent retailers including bakers, butchers and greengrocers. Every Friday and Saturday the streets come to life as the weekly market sets up and traders vie for your attention. In summer, continental traders often set up their stalls by the harbour. There is a quaint little cinema about 5 minutes' walk away – the Granville – which is on the seafront and sister to the Windsor in Broadstairs. The Windsor does more arty films, if that's to your taste.
Ramsgate is an architects' and artists' delight. Pugin, who designed the ornate interior of the Palace of Westminster has left his mark throughout Ramsgate and his lovely home is open to the public every month or so. There is even a tour of buildings bearing his mark throughout the town. Ramsgate has the 2nd largest number of listed buildings in the country. Turner painted some of his stunning seascapes locally, and the quality of the light is still remarkable. In his honour, the Turner Contemporary has now opened in Margate (you can walk there from the apartment in about 2 hours along the sea front) and it is a brilliant place to visit, with the bonus that it is free and has a good café that changes into a restaurant in the evening.
There are festivals and special events virtually every week in Ramsgate and the immediate area throughout the summer, the most famous being Ramsgate week, the Royal Temple Yacht Club's annual regatta. There are also the Power Boat and Water Ski Grand Prix, the Wantsum jazz festival and continental market weekends.

"Location, Location, Location."
If you are looking for a place in Ramsgate with a great location, then look no further. The view from the living room is worth the price alone. Lovely building with a frontage on to a small park, and views of the town and harbour, who could ask for more. Well you get more, since this apartment has everything you need. Television with Freeview and DVD player, two Hi-Fis, Wi-Fi, two sofas, dining table and chairs, washer/dryer, fridge/freezer, I could go on but it is all there. If you go out of season, be assured that the central heating keeps the place warm and cosy, and there is a gas fire in the living room for the times when you just want a quick warm up in front of a fire.
Ramsgate town centre is a couple of hundred yards away, which means no noise at night but a short walk to the bars, cafes and restaurants. Just around the corner is the Granville Theatre and Cinema. Ten minutes on the Loop bus takes you to the delightful Broadstairs with even more to see and do. Then you can carry on to Margate and sample the beaches and bars of this town.
We found Ramsgate to be a very friendly place, full of characters. People were happy to chat about the best places to eat and drink. Loads of banks, quirky shops, wonderful walks around the harbour and town, lots to see and do on the doorstep.
The owner, Lynne, was amazing, very helpful in all things, and a great communicator. We could not have asked for a better hostess, highly recommended.

"Quiet and comfortable place with a breathless view"
Great flat, warm and cosy and absolutely fully equipped - you can find everything what you need. As a person who prefer cooking, that was highly appreciated. Bathroom is very spacious, but warm and ni… More
Thanks for a lovely review, and glad you enjoyed your stay at the apartment. Despite our best efforts to boost the wifi signal, it's very variable and can be really weak, so in October we ordered a wired in connection. It should be installed in January, ready for our next guests.

"A fabulous apartment, roomy, comfortable,stunning views"
We found the apartment to have everything that was needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. It is fitted out to a high standard and is very comfortable and roomy. The owner is very friendly and kept in contact after the booking was made to ensure that things went smoothly and that we had an enjoyable stay. There was plenty of information on the locality in the apartment, we found several nice restaurants, shops and supermarkets nearby and the locals are very friendly. The views from the aprtment overlooking the harbour are stunning. The photos you see on the webb site are just as you find it !

For many years I have seen these apartments and wondered about the view and what they were like, well now I know, JUST DELIGHTFUL.
I don't care that the parking was a bit awkward at times or the 38 steps,( it's good for you) it's so nice to have a lovely apartment, with a decent sized and comfy bed. A tv that has more than 2 1/2 channels that you can view, all the mod cons you could wish for and comfort and space.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here , just wish it could have been for longer!!
Just loved the slippers!**.
If the Town Planners of dear old Ramsgate were to put as much effort and thought , as the owners,into the care of the seafront it would not look like it does now!
I speak as some one who had his 1st holiday in Ramsgate in 1954 and for the next 15 years, so I have seen it change, but I still love the old place.
So to all who follow it's GREAT!!!.
