About PHIL DENNIS

I was very lucky to be born in Broadstairs and I have lived here all my life.

Barnaby's Lodge was one of the first houses to be built in this lovely town.

I am a builder and have lovingly restored this unique cottage to it's former glory.

PHIL DENNIS purchased this cottage in 1992

Why PHIL DENNIS chose Kent

This cottage was built in 1680 with parts of it built out of chalk blocks carved out of the cliffs and flint, really anything they could find on the beach.

Broadstairs is a great place to come and visit and the cottage is located in a prime location, just a stones throw from the main beach Viking Bay, you could not wish to be any closer, with all the shops and restaurants on your door step.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage boasts of ships timbers to the ceilings and walls and is one of a kind.

It's such a cosy cottage, you can not help falling in love with it.

Sweet cottage. Full of character. Great location

  • 4 of 5

Phil the owner was extremely helpful when we had a few problems with smoke alarm and light fusing at the start of our break. He called around straightaway and fixed the problems. Apart from this, the cottage is a little gem. It is ideally located for the gorgeous beaches, and it also benefits from having a private and secure courtyard area ( ideal if you are holidaying with a dog!) I would highly recommend this property, and the only reason that we are giving it 4 Stars instead of 5 is because the bathroom could do with a shower attached to the wall. A small complaint, but one that I feel this property could really benefit from having, purely for comfort and convenience sake. Apart from that, we had a wonderful and relaxing stay. Thank You Phil. You were a great host, and so patient even when we called on your services quite a few times! We would definitely stay again.

Quaint and quirky cottage

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely break in Broadstairs dtaying n an old fisherman's cottage named Barnabys Lodge.

It forms part of an old cobbled courtyard alomgside similar properties in an extremely attractive setting.

Inside the cottage there was everything anyone would need and was extremely cosy in the evenings which were a bit chilly this year.

Ideally located a stones throw from.both beach and town centre you don't have far to walk.

Beautiful, cosy cottage in a prime location

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cottage as a last minute winter break and had a wonderful time. The cottage is wonderful, oozing with charm and character. It is very well equipped with all the home comforts you need. The cottage is very well maintained and was extremely clean on my arrival. I particularly like the comfortable king sized bed and private garden where I could sip my morning coffee. The owner Phil ,was very friendly and was happy to to advise me where to go as this was my first visit to broadstairs. The cottage is in a prime location only 2 minutes walk away from the beautiful sandy beach and plenty of very good restaurant and bars. I will definitely be returning and would highly recommend Barnaby's lodge to anyone..

Come and stay in one of our four 17th & 18th century grade 2 listed

cottages in the heart of Broadstairs.

Pets are welcome; even they need a holiday too!

Whatever your pleasure…come and enjoy some Broadstairs treasure!

You will be guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome whenever you come to Broadstairs. This picturesque town has a special atmosphere all of its own. Originally a small fishing hamlet, the towns ancient maritime past is nowhere more clearly seen, than in the huddle of cottages, old customs house & 16th century weather boarded boat house which nestle around the harbour.

Broadstairs other major industry was Smuggling!

Daniel Defoe noted that, of the 300 habitants, 27

were fishermen & the others had no visible means of

support. Barnaby's Lodge was just one of

those cottages used by the smugglers. The beauty of

Broadstairs is not only stunning beaches, but a vast

mixture of shops, galleries, museums, & shows.

An excellent selection of pubs, restaurants, bistros & take aways you

can experience; Italian, Mexican, Indian, Thai, Chinese, or traditional

English food all within easy distance from your choice of

accommodation.

If shopping is your pleasure, drive out to the new shopping centre at

Westwood Cross, just five minutes away, where you will find the large

department stores, or visit Historical Canterbury which is only 30

minutes away by car or train. The town is served well by bus, road &

rail.

If you enjoy the outdoor life, then experience a Viking Coastal Trail.

Winding your way through beaches, historic villages to where the

history of England really began!

The charm & heritage of Broadstairs has captivated generations of visitors, with popular events which are celebrated with great enthusiasm such as Dickens Week.

A colourful array of characters in period costumes re-enact the old days & bring history alive by one of England’s greatest writers Charles Dickens.

Another example is Folk Week, where the whole town comes alive &

bursts into music, dancing, & torchlight parades, bringing visitors from

all over the world. Folk Week celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2005.

Other attractions also include: Water Gala, Air Show, Sailing Regatta,

Horse Shows, Beer & Food Festivals, Power Boat Show plus so much

more, something for the whole family, whatever your age.

Relax & enjoy the view of the harbour, from the Bandstand with live

music where you can see the fishermen setting off to make their living

on the high seas of the English Channel.
