Make a holiday apartment in Margate your home away from home

Margate is a vibrant Kent coastal town, somewhat in the midst of a cultural renaissance: full of the historical charm of a traditional seaside resort, it is now also home to a thriving café culture and numerous art galleries. With everything Margate has to offer, it’s a favourite with couples seeking a romantic getaway as well as with families looking for a short seaside break. HomeAway has a wonderful selection of holiday apartments in Margate, many of which are located right on the seafront. All furnished to a high standard sleeping up to six comfortably, they offer the beauty of the tranquil blue sea, all within easy reach of restaurants, attractions, and activities; and, what with so many Margate holiday apartments located close to the centre of town, there’s plenty of opportunity to explore further afield too.

Things to do

-History: The Shell Grotto is easily one of the UK’s most mysterious sites; and it's usually the first port of call from Margate holiday apartments. This subterranean passageway was first discovered in 1835 and has mesmerised visitors ever since. Comprised of 4.6 million shells affixed to over 20 metres of hallways, no one is quite sure of its origins. Some believe pagans built it, whilst other theories relate the site back to the Phoenicians. Whatever the true story, the Shell Grotto is open daily from Easter to Halloween, and on weekends during the winter months. Prefer stately homes? Margate Tudor House is one of the oldest buildings in the region, and dates back to the early 16th century. Located in Old Town, the Tudor-era home boasts magnificent glazed windows and multiple chimneys.

-Culture: Margate Old Town is the cultural heart of Kent. Colourful art galleries, trendy cafés and cobbled streets are all just a stone’s throw away from several holiday apartments in Margate. Located close to the beach to boot, Old Town also hosts a number of events throughout the year, including the Margate Jazz Festival and the Margate Bazaar, which takes place on Sundays during the summer.

-Museums: Turner Contemporary was named after celebrated British painter JMW Turner who was very much inspired by Margate’s seascapes. The newest major art gallery in the South East, despite its name, focuses on art from 1750 right up to contemporary works of the present day. In addition to a permanent collection, the gallery also features rolling exhibitions that bring new art to Margate. Admission to Turner Contemporary is free.

-Family fun: The Hornby Visitor Centre is well within reach of Margate holiday homes and apartments, and is a great family-friendly destination. The centre features some of the most beloved toys from the Hornby, Scalextric, Airfix, and Corgi brands. This includes modern as well as rare and antique toys. The Hornby Visitor Centre is open daily.

Weather in Margate

Margate is naturally very popular in the summer months due to its excellent beach. Temperatures reach their peak in July and August at 22°C, though warm temperatures prevail from June to September. It does get quite cold in the winter and rainfall is pretty common throughout the year.

Travel to Margate

Margate is 125 kilometres from Central London, roughly an hour and a half's drive or a two-hour train ride away. There is a rail station located in the centre of town that connects Margate to London Victoria and London St. Pancras stations, but there are also a few small regional airports in South East England for visitors from further afield.

                                                          For 10 years we spend our holidays in Margate. But this apartment is one of the very finest in Margate, best view, small and cosy. For 2 people highly recommended . We will book this apartment again . Thank you very much. Greetings from the Baltic Sea Coast Warnemünde.

                                                          Lovely apartment in a great location

                                                          We really enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous Margate apartment. The key exchange was simple and the apartment had everything we needed. Elaine was very quick to respond to queries and did everything she could to ensure we had what we needed before we arrived. The apartment was a very restful place and we instantly felt at home there. It was very clean and well equipped with lots of information on local attractions and eateries too which was helpful. Our 3 year old was very happy with the toys and DVDs he found. The Royal Seabathing Hospital complex was a great place to stay in terms of location and the 24 hour security and allocated parking were an added bonus. The only negative points were the over sensitive smoke alarm in the kitchen (it went off twice when we used the toaster but we didn't burn it...perhaps relocate the toaster?) & the lack of recycling on site. Location wise, we really liked this side of town as it was very close to the gorgeous Margate beaches and all the other attractions were very easy to walk to. If we return to Margate we'd definitely stay at Elaine's apartment again. Thanks for a lovely weekend!

                                                          Excellent house, excellent location, extraordinary hospitality

                                                          We stayed at the Station Street Apartment when visiting Ashbourne for a wedding. We were traveling as a family, two children 3 & 5. The owners went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome and the children comfortable. They allowed us to use their garden (behind the property) to relax and unwind with the children after our journey. The apartment itself has everything you could need, and is larger than the pictures suggest. We thought it might be tight for the 4 of us, but there was more than enough room. The WC is separate from the shower room, which is handy when a family is sharing. The show is divine, the bed is far exceeding a hotel standard bed, the Wifi was great. Notably the host was welcoming to kids, who we had sleep on the sofas. The even helped me move breakables around the flat upon our arrival, so the kids were tempted by the vases with flowers etc. It is also a very short walk from the tunnels in Ashbourne which are a nice family activity.
