Description

Magical "doll's house castle" on clifftop leading to a gloriously uncrowded sandy beach. Come and enjoy our special place - a gothic, castelled cottage in parkland on Ramsgate's East Cliff. Great for spring and summer breaks. Enjoy stunning beaches, hidden coves and lovely walks, before returning too our unique, cosy home.

The charming house, built in 1798, was the gatehouse of Sir Moses Montefiore's estate, where the great philanthropist entertained the young Princess Victoria. It is situated midway between bustling Ramsgate and delightful Broadstairs. Walk along the beach or clifftop and within minutes you come to Dumpton Gap, an off-the-beaten track cove where you can breakfast at Sam's beach shack in spring and summer months, after exploring the rock pools or building a sandcastle.

There is lots of activity nearby: tennis, golf, sailing, swimming, walking, surfing, cycling, birdwatching, fishing.

Excellent restaurants and bars within walking distance, lots

Excellent restaurants and bars within walking distance, lots of historic sites, five-miles of sandy bays, zoos and animal parks for kids.

We have updated the Gate House to make it more flexible. There are two double bedrooms, one with a romantic four-poster and two with comfortable single beds. Plus there is now an additional smaller bedroom with two comfortable guest mattresses. Jack's cabin has now been transformed into a lovely shower room, with walk-in shower plus basin and loo.

Downstairs you step into a long lounge, with wooden floors and shutters, TV with Sky channels and many board games and books. The cottage also has WiFi. There is a downstairs loo and a rather sweet study. The kitchen is well equipped, with gas cooker, washing machine, microwave etc.The house is cosy in all weathers and has an excellent central heating and hot water system. We provide good quality duvets and pillows - guests only have to bring their own bed linen.

Outside there is a pretty courtyard garden. If you want to bring a pet, please discuss with us. We are happy to accept small, well-trained animals but the cottage is not suitable for big dogs.

Further details outdoors

You can hear the boom of sea as you lie in bed. Bird song all around. House fronts on to extensive local park, once part of the Montefiore Estate. Short walk to sea. One minute walk to beautiful listed Italianate greenhouse (which still protects 200 year-old vines) - once belonging to the big house. Children's play area in park, woodland, picnic spots. Lovely walks, starting from front door, invigorating sea air. We are happy to extend a welcome to good -natured pets, it's a lovely house if you have a small to medium-sized family dog as you step out in a glorious park and can be on to a sweeping beach in minutes. On a clear day you can see France.

Location description from owner

The Isle of Thanet region

Perfect location for those travelling to or from Europe. In the heart of the area known as The Garden of England. Plenty to see and only an hour and a half from London. Great location and superb sandy beaches. Glorious stretches of sand at Ramsgate and Broadstairs, peace and quiet at Dumpton Gap or Kingsgate coves, great surfing at Joss Bay. Historic Sandwich nearby and Canterbury - see the world famous cathedral - only 20 minutes' drive. Visit the new Turner Gallery at nearby Margate and check out the mysterious and ancient Shell Grotto while you are there. Ferry to Ostend 1km, ferries from Folkstone and Dover to France, 20 minutes. Less than an hour to Leeds Castle. Dover Castle and Hever Castle even nearer. Several golf courses within 20 minutes, including the championship course at Sandwich. The area is great for children. Ideal location for a bucket and spade holiday or a special occasion weekend away.

East Cliff, Ramsgate

Short walk to the beach, can walk along sands to Ramsgate with its picturesque harbour, sweeping beach, shops and bars. Or head the other way and a stunning headland or beach walk will take you to unchanged Broadstairs, with its attractive cove, Georgian houses, Morelli's famous ice-cream parlour, and restaurants and bars with terraces overlooking the sea. Climate often better than London, great walks and cycle rides along the cliff tops. Four tennis courts and a bowling green yards from the house. In Ramsgate you'll find the Maritime museum and the gothic home of architect Augustus Pugin, which became the model for rectories throughout Britain (open to visitors). Lots of very good bars, pubs and restaurants. Animal Park in Wingham, 20 minutes, Howletts Zoo, 20 minutes. Monkton and Pegwell bay are notable for birdwatching. Manston War Museum and Spitfire Museum also near. Visit the Yacht club or play Croquet at one of the oldest clubs in the country. Every year there are various festivals and events such as a tall ships race, surfing competitions, yacht racing, music. Plenty of shops in Ramsgate, including a Waitrose.
