Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Ramsgate - Wellington Crescent, Ramsgate

3 bedroom house in Ramsgate, near Canterbury, Whitstable and Broadstairs

This wonderful house enjoys a splendid position in an elegant sweeping crescent on the East Cliff with marvellous panoramic sea views. It was built in 1819; Samual Taylor Coleridge is recorded as having stayed here and as a princess Queen Victoria stayed in the house next door! The floors are original oak and rooms has been carefully decorated to reflect their Georgian heritage. All stairs are carpeted. There is a paved courtyard to the rear with garden furniture. The balcony enjoys fantastic views of the English Channel, Ramsgate Royal Harbour and beach. There is a table and cane chairs available to sit and enjoy the view and sunshine. The rooms are large and spread over 5 floors so that it is easy to find a quiet place as well as enjoy a gathering together in the communal rooms. Not suitable for the people with mobility difficulties,pets or children under 5 due to the numerous stairs.

Parking is on street free parking or metered parking 50 metres away. Good bus service.

The history: In common with Nelson Crescent its opposite number on West Cliff, Wellington Crescent first came into existence following the Napoleonic defeat at Waterloo in 1815. Before that the East Cliff was open countryside and was used during the summer months by the military with Canvas camps laid out and troops using the cliff for exercises and parades. It is believed that the columns along the crescent are cut from the masts of the French ships defeated in the battle.

In the 1700s during the Napoleonic times, Ramsgate became a garrison town and later developed as a seaside town when the aristocracy were forced to curtail their travelling and take their holidays in England. Handsome terraces and squares of Regency villas were built and today the Georgian architecture is evident on every corner. Many of the houses on the East Cliff were used as lodging houses for the rich and fashionable. Samuel Taylor Coleridge is recorded as having stayed at 28 Wellington Crescent between 1819 and 1833.

The history (cont.): Between 1843 and 1844 Augustus Pugin, a leader of Gothic Revival at this time built The Grange on the West Cliff at Ramsgate. Listed Grade 1, the house is now owned by the Landmark Trust and is open to the public. Pugin was one of the most influential architects of the nineteenth century and designed the interiors of the Houses of Parlament. In 1862 his son Edward Pugin designed St Augustine's Monastery opposite The Grange and also the Granville Hotel which is on the East Cliff.

Tha harbour dates from 1759 which established Ramsgate as a port for trade although there was a fishing village in Ramsgate long before that. in 1821 King George IV bestowed Royal status on the harbour - still the only one in England.

As a princess,Queen Victoria holidayed in Ramsgate several times - she stayed at Albion House which is just to the left of 28 Wellington Crescent. The Victorain artist Frith immortalised Ramsgate Sands in his painting 'A Day at the Seaside'. A copy is in the house.

Great location for a beautiful house.

  • 5 out of 5
I wanted a sandy beach holiday and my husband wasn't too sure about choosing Ramsgate, but there was no need to worry. We had 6 glorious days on the great beach just opposite the house - the Lift was a fantastic help - (no dogs allowed, lifeguard patrolled, and cleaned of litter every day).

But, the true star of our week was the house. As long as you don't mind stairs, 28, Wellington Crescent has everything you'd want for a relaxing, versatile holiday. We loved sitting on the terrace every evening and watching the array of boats sail back into the harbour and were treated to a firework display on our last night.

The Loop bus service was very convenient for Broadstairs and Margate and the Royal Harbour restaurants within walking distance - we went to the Oak Tavern twice. Ramsgate town centre was close - we cut through Albion Place gardens - pedestianised, had market days, lots of charity shops, had the essential Caffe Nero for my husband!

Thank you, Linda, for the obvious care you take to maintain the house and all its splendour - we had a a truly wonderful stay and I found myself missing the house for days after.

What a week!

  • 4 out of 5
The weather that week was not what we'd hoped for, when booking a holiday for us and the grandchildren! Rain, wind, storms...it didn't feel like June. However, the house more than made up for it. There was plenty of room for us all to 'spread out'; it was comfortable and warm and all the stairs certainly helped keep us fit - we made use of our mobiles, tho,to find out if anyone one in the sitting room wanted a drink, whilst we were down in the kitchen.
The views over the channel were great, and the lift opposite to the beach and harbour was a bonus.
Being Ramsgate born and bred, I was sad to see how run-down the town centre has become, but that also meant I know to visit Westwood Cross for shops and take the 'loop' bus to the Tate in Margate and the beach at Broadstairs. We had a wonderful Sunday lunch in The Oak and our son-in-law enjoyed his birthday meal at Pizza Express - both just 5 minutes away. It's not far, either to Howletts zoo and to Deal castle.
Thank you Linda for putting up with all my emails - I feel as though I know you. I'd recommend 28 Wellington Crescent to anyone wishing for a 'staycation' - unless you can't manage stairs! We had a wonderful time and would be very happy to go back.

Perfect house

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here between Christmas and New Year and fell in love this beautiful house, once lived in by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The house is at the start of a beautiful and historic Georgian crescent overlooking the beach, all sand, and at that time of the year deserted except for dog walkers and treasure seekers and, bordering it, the superb Great Wall of Ramsgate, worth the visit for this alone – 100 or more original paintings of the town or its famous residents associated with the place.

This has to be the perfect Georgian house, both elegant and practical. The drawing room is stunning with big comfortable sofas and, best of all, French doors onto the balcony overlooking the sea.

Nothing has been overlooked – there’s everything one could possibly need in the huge kitchen and the bath and shower rooms are outstanding - one with a huge bath and all with the most powerful showers.

So you might get the impression we like this house. You’d be right – as soon as we got back we booked it again for the same break at the end of this year!

Das perfekte Domizil

  • 5 out of 5
Diese sehr gepflegte Ferienwohnung entspricht wirklich genau den Fotos und der Beschreibung. Sie erstreckt sich vom Keller bis zum oberen Zimmer über 5 Etagen, ist sehr geräumig, hat einen großen Balkon im 1. Stock und bietet einen fantastischen Ausblick auf das Meer.
Ausflüge nach Canterbury, London und ein Spaziergang nach Broadstairs sind sehr zu empfehlen. Es gibt auch eine perfekte Busanbindung direkt am Haus. Ganz in der Nähe liegen auch einige Restaurants (uns hat der "Pizza-Express" gut gefallen).
Alles in allem ist das Feriendomizil sehr zu empfehlen und wir kommen gerne wieder.
