CHARMING ONE BEDROOM APARTMENT WITH LOTS OF ORIGINAL FEATURES AS SEEN ON TV

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Ramsgate - East Cliff House

Beautifully furnished character property on the sea front with private terrace

Known to all locally as the house which was on Location Location Location, East Cliff House provides you the opportunity to stay in a wonderful building right on Ramsgate's East Cliff, moments from the centre of town. From here you can walk to all that Ramsgate has to offer, the harbour, the beach and all the bars and restaurants.

On arrival you are struck by the building's beautiful frontage on to the sea front, with huge windows and white stucco walls it has a real wow factor. On entering the property you find lots of interesting paintings and items collected over the years. The living/dining area is generous in size and has a huge real fireplace for romantic views. The antique table and chairs positioned in the large bay window provides a perfect place for morning breakfast or candle-lit dinners. The kitchen is well-equipped with all the mod cons and an extra large fridge freezer. Access to a huge rear deck down a few steps is great for BBQ and eating al fresco. The terrace is sheltered and quiet.

Adjacent to the hallway is a w.c with sink and toilet. Interesting wall paper and hangings continue the quirkiness of this property into the smallest of spaces.

The bedroom is a dramatic large room with another large fireplace and huge bay window perfect for a Sunday morning lie in with the papers. There is a bathroom next door with bath and shower above.

East Cliff House appeals to those who enjoy historic buildings and interesting interiors.

Ramsgate for children: Full of places to visit for children of all ages, Ramsgate makes a fantastic destination for a family holiday. And with our accommodation so well placed, many activities are on your doorstep. There are plenty of Blue Flag beaches in the area, where you can be sure of safety, cleanliness and bucket loads of fun. One such beach is Botany Bay, a stunning spot nestled among cliffs, providing a perfect photo opportunity. Here, the kids can let off steam building sand castles, running up and down the dunes or paddling in the water.

Ramsgate Main Sands is another Blue Flag beach. A kiosk on the beach sells buckets and spades for the little ones, while the grown-ups can hire deck chairs and wind breakers. There’s often a merry-go-round, trampolines and a bouncy castle to enjoy as well.

Why not use your accommodation as a base to explore fascinating, diverse destinations nearby? Ramsgate is a gateway to some Kentish gems, London is just a short train ride away, and it couldn’t be easier to catch a ferry or the Eurotunnel to the continent. Dover is your best bet for a ferry to the continent. P&O Ferries and SeaFrance regularly leave for Calais, reaching their destination in roughly an hour and a quarter, making the experience a breeze. An alternative to Calais is Dunkirk, just two hours’ ferry ride from Dover with Norfolk Line. Here, visit the Musée des Beaux Arts, well known for its Flemish, Italian and French paintings, or discover Dunkirk’s maritime past in the Harbour Museum. And its famous belfries have earned the town the status of a World Heritage site. A little closer to home – just half-an-hour’s drive in fact – you’ll come across historic Canterbury.

Some Ramsgate history: The harbour was a chief embarkation point in the Napoleonic Wars. The town’s street names - La Belle Alliance Sq, Plains of Waterloo and Nelson Crescent for example – bear testament to Ramsgate’s involvement in this campaign.

During World War II, Ramsgate’s flotilla of ‘Little Ships’ was heavily involved in Operation Dynamo. Tiny vessels, fishing crafts and pleasure boats carried troops to, and evacuated troops from, the beaches of Dunkirk. Operation Dynamo brought 380,000 troops home with the much-loved Sundowner boat, sometimes seen in the Harbour, played a particularly heroic part, returning 130 men.

Ramsgate was ravaged by bomb damage, firstly by the Zeppelins in World War I, then by fighter planes of World War II.

Notoriously, the engine of a downed German Focke-Wulf 190 plane landed on 27 Wellington Crescent, decimating the property.

My name is Ben Irvine and I own and manage a number of properties in Ramsgate. I am not the owner of this property but the manager of it instead.

We have our own website and we only advertise properties which are furnished to a high standard, have lovely bathrooms, a great outlook, a sense of privacy and offer you a chance to escape from life's normal demands.

The owner bought this property a good number of years ago and loves coming to this part of the world and visiting with his family. He feels that Ramsgate is Kent's best kept secret. Being so easily accessible to London with the new high speed train opens up the area to a new market we both feel would love the area and in particular this property.

This property can be seen in William Frith's painting of Ramsgate Sands in 1854. The building sits next to Albion House and is located at the beginning of Wellington Crescent, a fabulous crescent of Regency period. It overlooks the beach and has a garden to the front of it. The garden is surrounded by a lovely big box hedge.

The building is beautiful, old, elegant and yours for a period of time short or long. It's a perfect ground floor apartment decorated to a high standard with soft neutral tones. It's a perfect place to relax and unwind, summer or winter, indeed any of the seasons.

The traveler visiting and staying in East Cliff house will have the opportunity to stay in a property which has been on Location, Location, Location and has featured in William Frith's painting. From the very recent, to the very old, this property has featured in Ramsgate's history and is a truly gorgeous property you will wish to come back to again and again.

Stunning apartment and extremely helpful manager

  • 5 out of 5
Myself and my young family had such a wonderful time here in East Cliff House. Who would have thought that a last minute escape to the seaside, Ramsgate, a place I had never been to but am hearing more and more about, would prove to be such a wonderful experience.

It's not long that I have been a mother and to have a little break from our suburban surrounds in Basingstoke was a real treat. This apartment is perfect for anyone coming with a young family. Ben can provide you with a travel cot as he did for us, which my baby was very happy in, and my husband was happy about not having to put in the car. There was a high chair also.

The apartment is on the ground floor so no traipsing up and down stairs with buggies. You're right next to the sea and close to town. We didn't use the car for the whole 4 days we were there. We were only supposed to stay for three days, but Ben kindly agreed to extend our stay at a very affordable rate.

The apartment is beautifully decorated and if you ask beforehand, the manager can arrange for firewood and you can enjoy the open fire place. It's warm, beautifully dressed and in a gorgeous building. It's got all of the mod cons but with the beauty of being in an old historic building.

Thanet is renowned for the quality of its beaches, and Ramsgate has some of the best in the area. Ramsgate Main Sands, situated a stone’s throw from the Royal Harbour, has been awarded a Blue Flag – a tribute to the cleanliness of its water, its safety record and its range of facilities. Hire out a deckchair and dig your toes into the soft sand.

On the seafront you will find Ramsgate Marina and the Royal Harbour. The area, surrounded by stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, is a hive of activity.

After all this activity, sit back and embrace Ramsgate’s café culture. Relax in one of the sea-facing cafés or restaurants, watching the boats come and go in the marina and admiring the skies that J.M.W Turner described as the loveliest in all of Europe.

Golf: Royal St. George’s:

Royal St. George’s is, put simply, one of the best golf courses in the world. On Thursday 14 July 2011, the course will host the fourteenth Open Championship of its illustrious history. If you are after accommodation for the Open, our holiday lets are just a short, scenic drive away.

Royal Cinque Ports:

Nearby Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club offers the ultimate test of links golf. It is notorious for its large sand dunes, 66 bunkers and forceful wind which will make the back nine a real test of character.

Prince’s:

Historic Prince’s Golf Club completes the triumvirate. The more affordable option, it is always in pristine condition and teems with humps and bumps, thick rough and head-high bunkers.
