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.

The accommodation was superb, with plenty of room for our party of 12 and baby (4 weeks old). We especially liked the lounge with balcony, ideal for afternoon chilling with the French doors open and the sound of the sea relaxing us. The range of equipment was extensive, with comfortable furniture and tastefully decorated throughout. The property was clean and well maintained. With regard to customer service, we cannot praise Jacqui and her staff enough. After a four hour journey home, one of our party (me) discovered that I had left my wallet behind in a cupboard drawer. In an above and beyond effort of coordination, Jacqui arranged for Donna to collect said wallet and mail it to me via special delivery, a deed that I was extremely grateful (and relieved) for. Many thanks to both these ladies. Overall, an excellent holiday package.

In a way I hope that not too many soul revellers read this review otherwise next year, there will be no space for us. It took just over 10 minutes walk along the seafront or the main road to get into central Margate. It certainly was a 'home from home'. Every small detail had been addressed, even down to the availability of sandwich bags, kitchen towel and dishwasher tablets. The entire apartment was very clean - (apart from the insect in the fridge and a few grains of food left in the microwave). The security was excellent. I always worry about leaving valuables when I travel but there was absolutely no need for any concern. All the linen and towels were obviously top quality, including the furniture. Tesco was genuinely 1 minute away and the local newsagent and takeaway places were across the road. I cannot fault anything about the apartment or the service. I would definitely recommend it to friends and relatives as long as they are not planning to go when I want to go. This kind of place is a hidden gem!

Being so close to the beach allowed us to pop back for anything we'd forgotten or to grab some refreshments! It was just perfect for what we needed
