Overview

About the property

2 bedroom cosy cottage 1 minutes' walk from the beach, pubs, restaurants & shops

Broadstairs has been voted "THE BEST SEASIDE TOWN" in the South East to visit !

The cottage is within easy reach of several Blue Flag beaches, local shops, restaurants and wine bars. It is tucked away in an idyllic courtyard yet still close to all the amenities Broadstairs has to offer. The perfect bolthole for a wonderful holiday!

The cottage was built in 1640 & has the added attraction of ships timbers & beamed ceilings throughout & like the other Fishermen’s Cottages, as you enter you get the feeling of stepping back in time where the men made their living from fishing or smuggling.

This unique cottage offers 2 bedrooms, and can comfortably sleep 4 people.

The main bedroom has a king size bed and the second bedroom has a bunk bed.

You will also find a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar and seating for 4 persons.

The lounge has faux leather sofas, a television with freeveiw and WI-FI is included.

The bathroom has a bath and shower which completes the accommodation.

Outside there is a courtyard garden with patio table and chairs. The garden is secure and child friendly, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the sunshine and have your breakfast or a glass of wine.

*All bed linen, bath and hand towels are provided.

There is also free parking on the Eastern Esplanade which again is only a couple of minutes' walk away.

There are seven golden sandy beaches to visit, these include Viking bay, Joss bay, Botany bay and there are smaller more secluded beaches if you prefer.

If you fancy a game of Golf on our famous golf courses, or a day out boat fishing, or even a trip to france for the day it is all here for you to sample.

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 retired builder and have lovingly restored this unique cottage to it's former glory.

I now manage The Fishermen's Cottages and have been in the hospitality trade for over 20 years now. I fell in love with this cottage when I was renovating it and I now have great pleasure in managing this one and two others that are on this web site.

I really enjoy in making sure that all of our customers have a great stay, with 5 star customer care!

If you want to know the best restaurants, pubs or beaches to visit then just let me know and I'll be happy to assist. I'm always here to help!

Why PHIL DENNIS chose Kent

Steeped in history this cottage was built in 1680 and was used by the smugglers, there is still the secret door in the lounge that they used to escape from the custom officers. Parts of this cottage are built out of chalk blocks carved out of the local cliffs with flint and old oak ships timbers, really anything they could find on the beach.

This is the best location to stay in Broadstairs, tucked away in a little courtyard yet so close to the beaches, shops and restaurants which are all only a minutes' walk away. Plus what a great place with all it's charm and character of a Fisherman's hide away, how could you not resist coming to stay.

What makes this cottage unique

It's such a cosy cottage steeped in history, you can not help falling in love with it.There is a small secure sunny garden with a patio table and chairs where you can sit out and have your breakfast or a glass of wine.

Everything is on your doorstep and there is no need to use your car, just park up on the Eastern Esplanade for free and enjoy the history and beauty of this wonderful old town.

Being right on the tip of the South East of England, we have our own little micro-climate here producing some of the best weather in the UK, with temperatures reaching up to 30 degrees.

You will be guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome whenever you come to Broadstairs. The town is steeped in history and charm and has been captivating visitors for generations.Barnaby's Lodge is a fantastic base from which to explore everything the town and surrounding area has to offer.

Owner's Response: Dear Trudi. Thank you for your feedback. I do apologize that there was a stain on the bed linen and we have now replaced it. It is our policy that if there is any damage to linen etc. it is replaced and on this occasion it had slipped the net. Kind regards. Phil.

Delightful stay at Barnaby's Lodge in Broadstairs

  • 5 of 5

Full of character, cute 2-bed cottage in a fantastic position very close to Viking Bay and the High Street. Very clean and had everything we needed. The outside courtyard was perfect for breakfast and we were blessed with wonderful weather all weekend. Nice and hot water for the end of evening bath to soak the weary bodies after all the coastal walking. Phil was in contact before and during our stay asking if everything was okay and we had no problems whatsoever. I love history and that the cottage was so old and sat there trying to imagine life as a fisherman (or a smuggler!) in the 17th century. If ever visiting the area again, would have no hesitation in booking Barnaby's Lodge.

A cottage with real character

  • 5 of 5

Well placed in a quaint area of Broadstairs near the harbour and the beach. A small cottage but full of character. This is the second time we have rented it and have found Phil very helpful.

We will definitely be booking it for 2018.
