About Kiel Shaw or Stuart Atkinson

We live in Ramsgate and work in Broadstairs, where we have a large showroom specialising in French Decorative Antiques. We spent ten years living and working in France, developing our knowledge of antiques as well as running a small hotel!.

Kiel Shaw or Stuart Atkinson purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Kiel Shaw or Stuart Atkinson chose Ramsgate

The property caught our eye one day with a large hand-written 'For Sale' poster in the window placed by it's old and very reluctant vendor. This vast Georgian townhouse overlooking the fantastic Ramsgate coastline seemed like the perfect home - our only challenge was to convince the owner to sell it to us, neighbours tell us that many had tried!

We both love Georgian architecture - this admiration began during our time in London with some of the East End houses there, especially the Huguenot houses of Spitalfields.

What makes this apartment unique

The Grade II listed house is part of a terraced Georgian garden square with it's listed Victorian 'rocks' and waterfall. Due to it's elevated position, the views are quite incredible and you'll even get a level eye view of the sea from the apartment. Access to the town, it's shops, bars and restaurants and of course the seafront and harbour is fantastic.

Perfect apartment, lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

We could not have wanted for anything and the apartment exceeded our expectations. Great quiet location but only a few minutes from town and you could see the harbour from the entrance. Really good to be able to park outside too. Stuart and Kyle were very helpful and we can’t wait to return.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is better than described it's just perfect with everything you could need for a lovely stay. It has the added bonus of a log burner which makes it so cosy you won't want to leave. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning very soon.

Superb Apartment with a View of the Channel

  • 5 of 5

If you want an immaculate, modern, well located, fully furnished large one bedroom apartment in Ramsgate, Kent this is the place to book. We spent 8 days in this recently renovated, fully equipped (right down to a gravy boat) nest and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The rooms are large, well furnished and all amenities are there including washing machine and dishwasher, ironing board, blow dryer etc. Kiel was an amazing landlord who greeted us upon arrival and also checked in during the week to see if everything was going ok, which it was. The bedding is lush and the mattress is top quality. We had wonderful sleeps whilst staying there. There is a lovely spot to sit out in the back area and walking out the front door puts you at the top of Madeira Walk where you are seconds from the harbour. Many restaurants and bars all offering great food and drink, and the High Street is just around the corner for shopping. A very impressive selection of DVD's, books, games, music are also there to enjoy. The fireplace was about to be installed so I can only imagine that this would be the icing on the cake. If you are a seasoned traveller like us, you will appreciate the thought for comfort and feeling just like at home that Kiel and Stuart have put into setting up this rental. DON"T pass this one by. You won't regret staying here.

what a sureal stay

  • 5 of 5

we arrived with our two Labrador dogs. the first impression was real excitement just from driving up to the apartment. once we got inside we were so surprised to see how smart the apartment is, very rare when you have dogs! the furniture is so nice, everything is of such a good standard (silver spoons....) it actually made us cook and we could really relax there. wonderful furniture, comfy bed..............I don't have one bad word! We really relaxed at the apartment every morning with fresh filtered coffee. thank you very much for making it so special, we appreciated it and will defo come back.

thank you to the owners which were so helpful and not intrusive.

Stunning, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

The decor was immaculate - very tastefully decorated with calming neutral colours all in eggshell paint. Furniture was a beautiful mixture of antique and distressed. The apartment had everything we could've wished for right down to dishwasher tablets and liquid detergent for the washing machine. The bathroom was quirky with an excellent shower. The bedroom was an oasis of calm: the softest bed we've ever slept on with a duvet that was easy to get lost in. We looked forward to going to bed - slept the best we've slept in a long time (11 hours most nights!) - and we didn't want to get up in the morning! All in all, this was the perfect base to explore Ramsgate and its surroundings. Lots of restaurants to try out; good shopping area; friendly people. Better than a home from home! I recommend it to anyone needing to get away from it all for a complete rest.

Ramsgate on the Isle of Thanet is a destination in every sense of the word. Away from the bustle of the city, it’s location is almost as far south east as you can drive in the UK and it’s so close to France that on a clear day, you can see the northern French coastline. The journey to this Georgian harbour town is well worth it. Ramsgate is one of three large towns making up the district of Thanet (including Broadstairs and Margate) and sits in the middle of fifteen sandy beaches and bays that stretch from Pegwell Bay in the South to Minnis Bay in the North, beaches that have recently been awarded no fewer than 8 ‘Blue Flags’ - that's more than any other area in the country. So it’s easy to see why Ramsgate is fast becoming the place to escape to.

The area has plenty of activities, culture and shopping . You could go surfing at Joss Bay (there’s a surf school there for novices), or you could try your hand at some Windsurfing in Minnis Bay (there’s a school there too). Kite-surfing is becoming very popular, or for the more adventurous there’s a diving school in Margate. Ramsgate has the UK’s only royal harbour (just two minutes from your accommodation) which is lined by bars and cafes where you can sit al-fresco and watch the yachts roll in and out. You can also take a seal-watching boat trip from the harbour side.

One of the best ways to get around the coast is by bike. The Viking Coastal Trail is a 27-mile long seaside trail divided into 6 themed routes. There’s a plethora of golf courses really close by, two of which have held the Open Championship (so they’re pretty good). The nearest one is at North Forelands.

Ramsgate also has a brand new 25m swimming pool with Spa and Fitness Studio.

Shopping: Margate's Old Town is great for Vintage and retro, (clothes, homewares, furniture etc.)

Westwood Cross - 15 minutes from Ramsgate - has all of the big chains for those essentials. Ramsgate has a small local street market every Friday and Saturday.

Further afield, Canterbury city centre (30 minutes by car) offers a further good selection of shops and boutiques.

London is 75 minutes by High-Speed train and the port of Dover is just 30 minutes drive away if you fancy a quick dash to France - you could be tucking into moules-frites by lunchtime!

Nearby Margate, one of the original seaside towns and famous for its 1950’s and 60’s youth culture has seen rapid regeneration over the past four years. The Turner Contemporary - a world class art gallery with frequently changing shows – is a must-see, the stark architecture of the gallery alone juxtaposed with the Georgian old town could compare to the Guggenheim in Bilbao! Visit the Shell Grotto in nearby Cliftonville - a curious, almost pagan place with 70 feet of tunnels and over four million shells set into the walls in beautiful mosaics. Dreamland is also being rebuilt into Europe’s only ‘heritage theme park’ that will host a carefully curated collection of fully restored antique rides.

Broadstairs is perhaps the more gentile relative sitting on Viking Bay, a beautiful bustling cove. The town hosts a variety of events throughout the year including a Food Festival and Folk Week. Morelli’s opened their first ice cream parlour here in 1932 and it still retains much of its interior today. Essential for frothy coffee and delicious ice cream and sundaes.
