“Great house, comfortable and in a great location”
A splendid stay at the house in Ramsgate, we had 10 people staying all who had ample room. The house is very clean and tidy with plenty of pace for entertaining and we have used this as our base for many years. The location is superb, overlooking tennis courts and the sea, the harbour is just 5 mins walk away with access to many bars and some really good restaurants, Ramsgate has a surprising number of them! We were on a golf trip and there are many courses within 30mins drive that are excellent - in particular Royal St Georges.
“Wonderful house by the sea!”
The house is set over 6 floors, in a beautiful period property, perfect for a large group of friends and family. It gave everyone their own space, but with fabulous communal areas. It is perfectly situated for the beach and the town. We were a hen party and it suited us perfectly for our needs. Clean, comfortable and well equipped. I'd love to have a holiday home like this. We will definitely book again in the future! Great communication from the owner too, which is always a bonus.
“Wonderful seaside retreat”
I organised a large family party in Latimer House for 10 people, (8 adults and 2 children) and the house more than accomodated us all. The children loved the many levels, and stairs, and the large bunk bed, and the stylish decor in the double bedrooms with en-suite made it very comfortable for all my family. Ramsgate is well connected to the local area and I organised kitesurfing lessons for the guys, just 1 hour away in Cambersands. We ate in both nights, and enjoyed the large kitchen/dining area which is well equipped, with a huge fridge. It has a great entertaining area for a large dinner party and room to get up and dance (if you choose). We had four cars in total in our group but had no problem parking for free close to the house. Enjoyed our stroll around the harbour on Sunday morning and sitting in the Belgian cafe (great sun trap), enjoying some cider and chips. Excellent seaside retreat - would definately go back.
I booked Latimer House for a long weekend with my family (8 adults, 3 kids aged 3 to 6) to celebrate my mum's 70th. I often hire big houses like this for new years breaks with friends, and this is definitely one of the best I've stayed in.... The house is beautifully furnished with quality stuff, and the whole place is extremely cosy and comfortable. The proximity to the sea and the town is ideal, [free] parking outside is fairly easy, the huge open plan kitchen/dining area is a fantastic entertaining space, the lounge is very comfortable and has a nice balcony view to the sea, the bathrooms are all very clean and high spec and the kitchen is extremely well equipped (including plenty of handy staples and basics). The house is spread over a number of floors so there are lots of stairs - worth bearing in mind if you've got lots of older people with you, but we just popped my parents in the master bedroom on the first floor and they were very happy. My three little nieces were also very excited by numerous floors (and bathrooms!) to explore and the the bunk bed that could house them all! Dealing with Deanna, the utterly charming and helpful owner, was also a pleasure. The only problem we had during our stay was that one of the two ovens didn't work. I texted Deanna when we discovered this and she immediately did her best to try and get an engineer to come round the next day. Unfortunately nobody was available, but Deanna kept us informed of progress and was very apologetic. It wasn't a big deal in the end anyway... we still managed to cook a huge roast for 11 people! In summary - I would highly recommend Latimer House for any big get together of friends or family.
“Perfect location for exploring Kent”
This is a large spacious property with good sized rooms. The kitchen/dining area is wonderful. The house is very clean. The property owner is extremely accommodating and prompt with regard to any queries and in response to communication. Close to the harbour, shops and local pubs. Good local walks. Good 'loop' bus service to Margate and Broadstairs. All the local take-aways, including fish and chip shop, deliver free - we didn't cook at all! We had a wonderful week exploring an area of Britain we had not been to before and Latimer House provided a good central spot. Loads to do. The only negatives - lots of stairs in the House, so my in-laws found it quite tiring. Also we all live in the country and have not stayed in a town before - so that took a bit of getting used to! Other than that, if you are looking for somewhere very clean, very approachable and efficient property owner with lots of places to visit and loads to do and have a thoroughly good time - this is the place.
“Fabulous house, fantastic location.”
A really lovely, light and spacious, comfortable and well equiped home. Absolutely everything you could ever need in the kitchen, including some food stapels like tea, coffee, sugar, salt, oil, etc.. The utility room is full of childrens equipment such as buckets, spades and tennis racquets, and the sitting room has plenty of DVD's and books. There are lovely views across the square and of the sea and lots of interesting places to visit within a few minutes walk. I stayed there with my 4 school friends (of 32 yrs) and our 9 children aged between 6 and 11. We had a fantastic time and the house was amply big enough to house (and feed) us all comfortably. (Owner very nice to deal with.) An absolute gem of a place.
“A perfect house for large groups!”
The house was clean and modern and cateered well for us as a group of 11. The large Kitchen/diner made it easy to cook for everyone and the beach, bars and restuarants were a 5 minutes away. Tennis courts are opposite and you can sit on the balcony and watch.
