Location description from owner

The Isle of Thanet region

Londoners have been escaping to the Isle of Thanet for more than 200 years for the laidback seaside vibe, breath-taking sandy beaches, fresh sea air and romantic Turner skies - once seen never to be forgotten.

Here at the very edge of the Garden of England, three Georgian and Victorian resorts, each with its own distinctive character Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate cluster around the bays at the far end of a peninsula.

Theres a retro feel to these harbour towns, with their remarkable 18th and 19th century architecture, their classic seaside heritage and kitsch, their eclectic attractions and live arts and music venues. And there is a variety of independent places to shop, eat, drink and stay.

Miles of low chalk cliffs edge the peninsula, sheltering a string of secluded, unspoilt sandy bays. Chalk rock pools, chalk stacks and rare chalk reefs teem with wildlife. These are the closest surfing beaches to the capital city: a popular choice with south-east boarders.

Artists, writers and musicians have long been inspired by this almost-island and continue to be drawn here. Turner said Thanet had the loveliest skies in all Europe for Dickens Broadstairs was the freshest, freest place and Tracey Emin declares in pink neon on Margate seafront: I never stopped loving you.

The Isles a historic landing place steeped in symbolism for the story of Britain, the first Saxons Hengist and Horsa arrived and settled here and St Augustine first stepped onto these shores on his way to nearby Canterbury.

For this is the furthest south east you can go in Britain - almost touching mainland Europe, yet these days only 75 minutes from central London.

And now with the Turner Contemporary gallery, the return of the iconic amusement park Dreamland, reimagined for the 21st century, and high-speed trains from the capital a new generation is discovering this original seaside escape.

Margate

Margate the original seaside town is fizzing with artistic energy and is in the midst of a cultural renaissance. The most beautiful sandy beaches are within walking distance of The Royal Seabathing Apartment. Ours is set on Westbrook Bay, perfect if you prefer your beach less busy. Margate main sands for family nostalgia and fun aplenty is less than a 10 minute walk away on the promenade.

There are plenty of cool cafes, micro pubs and restaurants to choose from and tempting retro shops. Dreamland with it's vintage cool tag and a world class art gallery inspired by Turner - what's not to love?

Margate's annual jazz festival attracts top bands, setting toes tapping all over the Old Town where you can be tempted with locally made ales and wines. The Margate Masters draws Britain’s best beach volleyball teams each summer, while August brings an explosion of colour and sound, as Margate’s vibrant, annual carnival procession snakes through the town over Margate Soul Weekend.

“Excellent Property”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2016

I booked this apartment for my husband, daughter and myself. My daughter has disabilities so needed to look for a property that was suitable for her needs. She is a wheelchair user though does not use one indoors if floors are all on one level and no steps. I contacted the owner to confirm this and had good communication in answer to my question.The entry door has a step as does access to the outside terrace. I was made aware of both. The apartment was perfect for her needs. We booked the property for 3 nights prior to going over to France. We live in Yorkshire so looked for some where not too far from the Tunnel. It was a great having a gated apartment and to be able to park our car safely. The apartment was absolutely lovely, clean, fresh and modern. From reading previous reviews someone said that everything had been thought about and have to say it was. Only thing missing for us was no teapot, coming from Yorkshire we love our cuppa. The beds were lovely and comfortable as was the pillows, I have to say this property has to be one of the best for good quality mattress and pillows. Plenty of hot water always available. On arriving we had milk, bread, spread, juice left by the owner and some basics in the cupboard. We were also left dishwasher and washing tablets. What a nice touch. The weather wasn't particularly settled but was good coming back to such a nice property. We didn't therefore get any use from the terrace, though can imagine if good weather would be lovely to sit out. Good Wifi reception. We visited Turners exhibition which was very good. We also visited Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Canterbury. One evening we had a Fish & Chip supper from across the road , which was very good. All in all it was a really lovely apartment, it was as described and we had great communication with the owner. Thank you

Thank you so much for your review and your kind words they are very much appreciated. I will now invest in a teapot, I'm always looking for ways to improve guests stay at the apartment :) We would love to have you back to stay, the apartment was immaculate. Thank you.

“So Lovely I could have Happily Moved in”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2016

We were so happy with out stay we did not want to leave. The property is lovely. Very spacious, beautifully decorated and very well maintained. Courtney has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. The security staff were very helpful and friendly. It was quite cold during out stay but the terrace seemed to be out of the wind and we spent many hours enjoying the Sun with a glass of wine over looking the sea. The sunsets were spectacular. The location of the apartment is great and there is a bus stop right outside so you can venture out to surrounding towns. We never used our car the whole time. The local bus service was excellent. There is a Tesco Express and a few convenience stores nearby and we ate at a very nice Indian restaurant which was about 5 minutes walk away. It was my first trip to Margate and whilst some of the town needs some TLC the beach was great and the old town was lovely to stroll around. There is of course the Turner Gallery. It is also a great base to explore the surrounding area. I would return just to stay at this wonderful apartment.

I love the title of this review :) Thank you for your kind words, they are very much appreciated and I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Welcome back anytime - the apartment was left very well, thank you.

“Freshly decorated and updated for 2016”

Reviewed 20 Feb 2016

Fab new French Connection sofas and oversized lampshades gives this generous apartment a young funky vibe. Fully loaded with all you could want of a holiday home - comfortable beds with cosy mattress toppers and high quality bedding. No expense has been spared right down to the Tony & Guy hairdryer and Fired Earth robe hooks! Kitchen has everything you could need, even kids cutlery! Fridge stocked with bread, milk, butter and fruit juice on arrival. Great location, large terrace with beautiful sea views and only 10 mins walk into Margate. Can recommend the lunch menu at the Sands Hotel, however our daughters favourite was the Cupcake Cafe. There is also an Indian restaurant, various takeaways and Tesco Express just outside the Seabathing Hospital. Last but not least a thoughtful owner, communication great from booking to departure. Can highly recommend this apartment and I am sure we will be back soon.

Wow, thank you for your lovely review, very kind of you. I'm so glad that you and your family had a great stay - welcome back anytime, the apartment was left beautifully. Thank you.

“Fabulous”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2015

My husband and I had a week in this apartment, and there is absolutely nothing to fault it, well furnished, everything you need, and the most wonderful balcony with seating/table and fantastic sea views. Highly recommend this apartment for anyone wanting to visit Margate.

“Awsome Apartment”

Reviewed 7 May 2015

Really was a lovely apartment with everything we needed as a group of friends. Terrace over looking the sea which was very nice. Has own parking space which made life easy. Great location as well, 5 mins to beach, and 10 mins to old town. Tesco express right next door. If I come to Margate again I will definately want to stay here.

Thank you for your lovely review - welcome back anytime! Thanks again.

“fabulous in every respect!”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2014

This is a fantastic apartment in a very interesting historic setting. Every aspect of the accommodation is really good. There are two super bathrooms, the main bedroom is very large and the other one has bunks and lots of toys and things to keep young children amused. The doors open out on to an extensive patio with great views out over the beach. Since the November weather was less than perfect we didn't venture out there too often but the Margate air quality is very good and there are plenty of bracing walks in both directions when you leave the property. The owners were super helpful when I phoned to say I couldn't get the TV working - the lead was in the wrong socket which was easy to sort out. All in all this was by far the best place we've stayed in in 7 years of visiting Margate to visit our disabled son (who stayed with us and loved it too) and we can't wait to return. A big thank you for making our long weekend so pleasurable. Paul, Wendy and Aaron Newman

Thank you for your kind review, it's always very much appreciated.

“Luxury Beach chic accommodation in a fun quirky location!”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2014

When we drove into the complex we were blown away by how smart and secure it was. We found the apartment easily and the treats kept on coming. Spacious and tastefully decorated throughout and in pristine condition . Everything we needed was on hand and any question we asked ourselves was answered by the well thought out user guide. We had a fab dressed up night out in Margate where we found 2 lovely places for cocktails followed by a taste tactic meal at The Ambrette restaurant. The beds were super comfy. The lounge was perfect for a lazy morning recovering from the night before with squishy sofas, blankets and lots of cushions. This place is so good that you don't want to go outside . Fortunately the atmosphere in Margate is to good to miss. I would recommend this apartment whatever your agenda. It's lovely to know you have somewhere comfy and cosy to come back to once you have explored all that Margate has to offer!!!
