Broadstairs holiday accommodation is located in and around a seaside resort in Kent, southeast England. It’s a destination with a fascinating history, and plenty for all the family to enjoy, with beaches and all kinds of amusements in summer.
One of the reasons the resort around Broadstairs self-catering accommodation is so highly thought of is the town’s well-preserved Victorian heritage. As with most seaside destinations, Broadstairs gained popularity in the 1800s, and there are a number of attraction here relating to this era. Among the most prominent is the Dickens’ House Museum, which is where the world-famous author, Charles Dickens lived, with a range of exhibits devoted to his work and life in Kent. Meanwhile, sitting on a cliff-top, overlooking the water is Bleak House, which was a summer residence for Dickens in the 1850s and 1860s. There’s plenty more to see and do in the summer months – at this time of year the town’s bandstand plays host to all kind of entertainment, and there are a number of good beaches to be found close to Broadstairs self-catering holiday cottages. Viking Bay, with its large expanse of golden sans, is the beach that extends for much of the resort’s waterfront and boasts a pier and promenade. There are a number of other beaches to seek out in the area though; each offering a slightly different experience – including Dumpton, Louisa and Botany, which are worth a walk at any time of year. If golf is you’re game then you’ll be just a few minutes from the North Foreland Course, which is tucked between Broadstairs and neighbouring Margate and boasts two separate courses with absolutely unforgettable views of both the coast and rural Kent.
