|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
The house is a few minutes' walk from the beach to one side and a few minutes' walk from all the restaurants and bars to the other.
The cottage has great character in the century-old design, wood-panelled dinning room and large secluded garden. There are 3 lovely double bedrooms, sleeping up to six, with the possibility of 2 additional cot beds. On the first floor you will find the two main bedrooms and the main bathroom (with bathtub and shower), and a separate toilet. Downstairs there is a dining room, a sitting room, a kitchen with an additional small dining area, a downstairs shower room and a second separate toilet. Bedroom number 3 can also be found on the ground floor, through our little 'sunroom' towards the back of the property. The sitting room has TV and DVD and there is free Wifi.
The house is situated in a lovely, tiered garden with mature shrubs and (fruit) trees, with swings, see-saw and toys for children. We have recently completed the works to the al-fresco dining area which now completes the holiday feeling. We hope that you will appreciate the charm of our home as much as we do.
Unfortunately, the house has a number of steps and levels on the ground floor making it unsuitable for wheel chair users.
We are a family from London who loves coming to stay in Broadstairs whenever possible. Our twin-girls always squeal with delight when we tell them that they will be going to the beach, building sand castles, paddling in the sea and having an ice-cream on the promenade - no matter what time of year it is. We fell in love with Broadstairs many years ago (we actually got engaged here!) and then our dream came true when we stumbled across this idyllic cottage in 2009. We have since restored it lovingly and turned it into a really cosy holiday home. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Roger Thelwell-Pichler purchased this cottage in 2010
As soon as we open the front door we immediately feel relaxed and happy to be back in our lovely holiday home.
The quietness, the tranquillity and amazing fresh-air all contribute to that holiday-feeling which will help de-stress you.
Sea views from the Master bedroom, large garden, BBQ, decked out-door eating area, beautiful dinning room, close to the beach and town, quiet.
Wir hatten eine wundervolle Zeit in Broadstairs und im Sandy Bay Cottage. Das Cottage liegt ca. 5 Gehminuten vom Strand entfernt und bietet aus dem Master Bedroom einen fantastischen Blick auf's Meer und die atemberaubenden Sonnenaufgänge. Das Haus ist sehr schön eingerichtet, sehr sauber, perfekt ausgestattet und bot in unserem Fall großzügigen Platz für 6 Erwachsene und ein Kleinkind.
Der Stadtkern sowie Supermärkte und Pubs sind in 10 Gehminuten zu erreichen, größere Einkaufszentren und Superstores in 10 Autominuten.
Der Kontakt zum Vermieter war sehr freundlich und es hat alles reibungslos funktioniert.
Wir kommen gerne wieder! :-)
The photographs of Sandy Bay Cottage don't really do this beautiful spacious house justice. Well equipped full of character and lots of room for three generations of family, although not suitable for people with walking difficulties due to a couple of big steps leading into the downstairs bedroom and steps into the downstairs toilet. Lovely big bedrooms the front one overlooking the sea. 10 minute walk to Stoney Bay Beach down some steps, 15 -20 minutes walk to Broadstairs and Broadstairs beach very handy shop called Victory News on the way.
Lovely seating area and Bbq in the garden.
a really nice house so smart cosy and calm we love it we like to read in the garden to walk near the sea the weather was fine hot all was perfect we want to stay again merci pour tout
When we arrived we were impressed at the size of the property. It was more than adequately stocked.and was clean and well maintained.
We had a great week in the area and if we return to Broadstairs will look to book the property again. We would recommend this property.
We had a lovely holiday in this well equipped house. It is central to the town and near sandy beaches. Our 19month old grandson enjoyed the toys provided.
As I mentioned in a text to you before I left England, I would provide more feedback on your property, once I returned to the US, and here I am.
Firstly we had a marvelous time. The property was larger and I expected, and secluded from the other homes. The street was quiet. Each of the three bedrooms were spacious and light. The large bathroom upstairs was wonderful. There was always plenty of hot water for the showers, the dishwasher, and the washing machine. I did have to ask my niece how to operate the dryer when that light kept going on. Once she explained that the dryer was not vented outside and the reservoir had to be emptied, it was smooth sailing. We all loved the amount of space, with a large lounge with loads of toys, and the lovely dining room. My grandchildren, and other children that visited us made great use of the toys, as well as the lovely sloping garden. The swings were put to good use. I did have family visiting and we sat outside – I was unable to find the seat cushions for the chairs, but we used the benches anyway. All appliances worked well.
We followed your directions to the beach and into town, and each walk was pleasant. For our larger shopping we did go to Sainsbury, just an 8-minute drive. I always rent a vehicle when I go back to England each year, but this time it was a bigger one -a van – and my son really enjoyed driving around the streets.
My girls found a friend in the downstairs toilet, behind the toilet itself. They named it Tom, I wanted to name it Ralph, but they won that toss. Each day the girls would look for Tom and let me know if it was in or out.
The section joining the kitchen to the bedroom on the ground floor was perfect for drying clothes as the sun came through most of the day and in fact it got quite hot.
Your neighbour came over to assist with getting the rubbish to the curb, so thank you for that. The only snag was the regular rubbish bin was almost full on our arrival, and that pick up did not occur during our stay. When we left we had several large plastic bags of regular rubbish which were put beside the bins.
All in all we had a super time, and would definitely book again. Not next year but in a few years.
The beauty of breaks in Broadstairs is that whatever your interests, whatever your mood, whatever you age, there is always something enticing to do.
Most visitors are attracted to Broadstairs because of its many lovely sandy beaches. For fresh-air activity cycle along the family-friendly Viking Coastal Trail, play golf (18-holes, mini, adventure), or how about high-octane surfing.
Learning is fun for all ages with the Thanet Coast Project, which organises seashore safaris and Rock Doc Walks revealing the natural wonders of our coast. Maybe join a boat trip to see playful seals.
Broadstairs' heritage and culture is equally varied, contrasting Dickens House Museum and Pugin's Grange with Turner Contemporary and the innovative galleries of Margate Old Town. Also uncover surprises like the exotic Powell-Cotton Museum and the mysterious Shell Grotto.
Broadstairs' English Language Schools also attract many visitors throughout the year and many students, teachers and their families turn their learning experience into a holiday.
As to food, you can tuck into everything from fish and chips to Italian and Thai. Sample café culture beside Ramsgate marina and beer from the local brewery. Crunch on Thanet's very own new crisps and buy Kent's finest from Quex Barn farmers' market.
