The Isle of Thanet region

Kent is widely known as the Garden of England. As well as the attractive scenery and blue flag award winning beaches, Kent has many iconic landmarks such as Canterbury Cathedral, Leeds Castle and the White Cliffs of Dover. In East Kent, you can find diverse attractions such as Port Lympne Animal Park, the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate and Sandwich Golf Course (host of the 2011 British Open).

You can also experience a seal encounter out at sea, ride on vintage trains, watch county cricket at Canterbury or shop at Ashford Designer Outlet Centre. Not forgetting you are handily placed for a day trip across the Channel.


Broadstairs is a hidden gem. The town lies above a harbour with cliffs on either side and has seven bays of golden sand. It has been a seaside resort since Victorian times and oozes history and charm. It has links with the novelist Charles Dickens: he wrote David Copperfield in Bleak House overlooking the harbour. The Broadstairs Charles Dickens festival is held annually in June in his honour. Another very popular festival is Broadstairs Folk Week in August. Broadstairs boasts a wide range of cafes and restaurants from traditional fish and chips to ethnic cuisines.

The sea front has more cafes, ice cream parlours and amusement arcades (our nine year daughter describes Morellis as ‘the best cafe in the world’) , and on the beach in summer there are donkey rides and Punch and Judy shows for the kids. It also has a quaint hundred seat cinema by the harbour for when the sun goes in!

"The apartment was perfect for our stay."

The booking arrangements and arrival information were very well organised, thank you Annabel! We were delighted with the apartment. It was very well furnished, modern and bright and everything seemed brand new! Every little thing had been well thought out to cover all our needs. We loved sitting out in the sunny garden and relaxing in the comfortable living room with TV, videos, games and books to keep us entertained. The location was very peaceful but near enough to walk to the beach or into town in the evening. We slept well and felt thoroughly relaxed after our stay.. Thank you. We will definitely be back!

Thank you for your lovely comments and we do hope you return soon!

"Lovely stay"

I stayed at this lovely place with my daughter and her two young children. We enjoyed our girly stay with the children! The property has everything that you could possibly need. My 4 year old granddaughter loved playing with the toys. It was a luxury to have the garden to sit in. The kitchen at the back of the property is great, opening onto the conservatory. I shared the second bedroom with my granddaughter - she slept on the roll out bed..a little bit of a squeeze but absolutely fine. It is 10-15 minute walk down to the beach. We would definitely recommend this property and would love to return one day.

Thank you and we do hope you can return at some point. We are pleased the toys and games were enjoyed as well as the beautiful garden!

"Home from home!"

We had a lovely stay in Broadstairs and with just 10 minute walk from the beaches it's ideal. Our boys called it our new home & didn't want to return to our old home! Owners very helpful & easy to contact if needed. Lovely flat and has all you need to make your stay comfortable. You can just turn up unpack & enjoy your break! We would stay here Again 100%

We look forward to your boys coming back to their 'new home' anytime! We are delighted you had such a lovely time.

"Beautiful, comfortable & brilliantly positioned"

It makes my husband & I very nervous going away with our 3 and 2 year old boys, but arriving at this apartment took all of that away. The place is so well thought out, so cleanly & simply designed, decorated, is just beautiful. We all felt right at home, right away & had an amazing stay. Cant wait to come & stay again.

"Lovely place"

Very nice, comfortable flat with lots of thoughtful touches to make your stay pleasant and easy. Definitely recommend it. The only thing I would say is that if you intend to cook, you need to bring everything or buy it once you're here eg oil, herbs, butter. All there is, is salt and pepper, plus the milk and bottle of wine provided for you. And the train noises take a bit of getting used to but they're not unpleasant. Overall a lovely place. Would happily return.

"Perfect weekend stay!"

Apartment was welcoming, warm and spacious. Owners gave great communication and were also very flexible in terms of admin so made things straightforward. Apartment itself is super clean and comfortable - we were so relaxed we didn't want to leave. Lovely little touches like there being a fresh loaf of bread, a bottle of wine in the fridge - made us feel really welcomed and thought of. Great location, very short walk to everywhere. TOTALLY RECOMMEND IT!

"Highly recommended accommodation when staying in Broadstairs."

We really enjoyed our stay at Broadstairs and were lucky to have good weather throughout. The flat was very well appointed, clean, and spacious. The conservatory and back garden were lovely too...not surprisingly, I think you have a resident seagull!

"You won't regret choosing this one - I know I don't!"

This is a lovely garden flat in a quiet residential street, not far from the town centre and the seafront - no more than 15 minutes on foot (and that is walking at a very relaxed pace, tugging along a small child and a pram). There is no dedicated parking, but on-street parking has not been a problem - in fact, for most of the two weeks we spent there the space right in front of the property has been available whenever we needed it. The house itself appears to have been recently refurbished, so it feels clean and fresh. I would not claim it has got a lot of character, but it is by no means soulless, either - it does actually feel quite homely. It is probably best suited for a family of four (two adults and two children), but with the sofabed in the living room it can sleep 6 people in reasonable comfort, and travel cots for smaller children are provided as well (cannot say much about them though, as we brought our own). Speaking of the living room, it is quite good size, light and airy, and more than suitable for a relaxing night in - families with children will certainly appreciate the selection of toys and games on offer. There is also, of course, a garden with a decked area and a nice patio at the back - great for those lazy al fresco breakfasts and family barbecue parties. The garden, in my humble opinion, is the real game changer here - as yes, there are nice holiday apartments with a sea view available for rent near the main promenade in Broadstairs, but with nowhere for children to run around in safety and comfort in the evening! Prior to moving in we were a bit worried about having a railway right behind the back garden wall - but in fact the tracks are much lower, so one can barely hear the passing trains, let alone see them (or indeed be seen). The one and only room in the flat that ever so slightly disappointed was the kitchen. It is just as nice and clean as the rest of the house, but in my opinion somewhat strangely equipped. For one thing, wall units do not go along the whole wall, but rather there are three separate units of quite modest size, already filled with crockery and glassware - as a result we struggled a bit with just storing a few groceries bought to last a few days (cereal, pasta, etc.). The fridge works fine, but it's got a freezer compartment that is the same size as the main refrigerator bit and is more conveniently located (on top of the unit) - who, I wonder, makes much use of a freezer on a two-week holiday? The provided crockery is quite nice, but I would say some essential bits are missing - we had to be inventive and use a casserole dish to mix and serve salads... The barbecue was in a right state, which makes me think cleaning it is not part of the job of whoever cleans the apartment before new tenants move in - so it's all down to whether the previous holiday makers cleaned after themselves (we did). Another small thing is the Internet access - it is provided via a 3G modem, but it is metered (not unlimited), and obviously requires a USB port, so it would be of no use to people travelling with tablets, e-book readers, etc. We didn't even bother with it, to be honest, and just used one of our mobile phones as a Wi-Fi access point... Despite those minor imperfections, we certainly had a great time at this apartment, and I would recommend it without any hesitation. It is also worth mentioning that on a couple of occasions when we needed some assistance from the owners, it was provided promptly and was more than satisfactory!

"Well equipped and lovely apartment"

Very nice apartment, well equipped also for cooking. Not easy to find a nice decorated apartment with 2 travel cots and a big table where a family of five can easily have dinner, but this flat ticks all the boxes. Also well located only 10-15mn walk (with young children) to the main beach. Very friendly contact with the owners. As Broadstairs is a nice litte town with nice shops and beaches, we'll definitily be back and will check the availability of this apartment first!

"Superb, real value for money."

Beautiful apartment, you can tell that real thought and consideration has been given to ensure all guests want for nothing. Fully equipped, clean and comfortable, loved the garden. The welcome hamper of tea coffee sugar milk bread and wine was much appreciated. I will definitely be booking again.
