Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Kent - Self Catering in Broadstairs

holiday apartment opposite sandy beach, golf course, tennis place, pub,

The holiday apartments are situated on a most romantic and unique sandy beach near London. They have been family managed by the owners for twenty years. Part of a 250 year old Georgian Mansion the apartments are comfortably furnished including books, videos and games. Every room has a beautiful view either out to sea and the chalk cliffs or towards the Victorian garden at the back of the house. There is an ever changing scene sea scape with the tides, fascinating sea birds, ships to watch either from the windows or the beach directly in front of the property. You have opportunities to play golf straight behind the house, go swimming, go to the children's play area or play tennis. A good idea is to bring your own bicycles with you. The bicycle paths around this area and some along the beach are breath-taking. All apartments are child friendly and non-smoking areas.

About Simone Vince

We are a bilingual family and we found this beautiful property twenty years ago and fell in love at first sight. It is not only picturesque but also historic being linked to the famous Holland Family with interconnections to the famous Spencer and Lennox sisters who descended from King Charles II. King Charles I gave Kingsgate Bay it Royal Title when he landed here on the way to London.

Simone Vince purchased this house in 1999

Why Simone Vince chose Kent

When we bought these apartments they showed their former glory but needed upgrading to quality facilities for modern discerning holiday makers. The whole area has also since benefited from the economic prosperity of the South East with excellent new road and high speed rail links. Manston Airport also provides great connections to Europe and the rest of the United Kingdom.

What makes this house unique

Holland Cottage is unique with its direct access to a secluded chalk-cliffed sandy bay. The famous Kings 'Gate' is opposite the house with steps leading to the beach. The chalk cliffs are often featured in tourist promotions for Kent especially the famous Kingsgate Arch. The chalk cliffs are famous for their fossils and rare sea birds nestling in the caves for birdwatching. The cycle path (also named the coastal trail) is ten pedals from the front door.

Great Location for beaches - super comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We spent a couple nights mid-week at Beach View and had a lovely time. The location is superb, nestled between Joss and Botany Bay, directly across (1 minute walk) from Kingsgate Bay. A perfect location for beach enthusiasts with kids who like exploring. And just a minutes drive from the cafes, pubs and restaurants of Broadstairs,

The accommodation itself was very comfortable with ample space and mod cons. Would definitely recommend it, and hopefully return one day.

Entspannend und idyllisch

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr gemütlich ausgestattet und sauber. Die Lage ist ein Traum. Über die ruhige Straße und die Treppe hinunter, schon ist man am Strand.

Ein ausgedehnter Spaziergang nach Margate an der Steilküste entlang ist sehr schön. Margate jedoch ist in die Jahre gekommen. Es gibt ein paar nette Läden und Cafés in der Altstadt. Zu empfehlen ist das gemütliche Cupcake Café mit tollen Kuchen, Sandwiches und Tee.

Nach 10 Minuten Fahrt von der Wohnung hat man auch das riesige Shopping-Areal am Ortseingang von Broadstairs erreicht. Sainburys, Tesco, Asda sind dort ebenso angesiedelt wie viele andere Nonfood Läden.

Sicher gibt es auch noch andere kleinere Einkaufsläden in näherer Umgebung.

Simone hat uns gleich am Ankunftstag ein paar Tipps gegeben. Es gibt in der Umgebung einige spannende Ausflugsziele wie Wallmer-Castle oder Deal-Castle.

Sehr sehenswert ist Canterbury. Natürlich darf man Dover-Castle nicht verpassen.

Es lohnt sich für den Besuch der Sehenswürdigkeiten von English Heritage den "Overseas Visitors Pass" zu kaufen.

London ist super mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Wir haben am Millennium Dome geparkt und sind einmal mit dem Thames-Clipper (tolle Fahrt) und einmal mit der U-Bahn in die City gefahren.

Alles in allem ein toller Urlaub, viele Dinge zu erleben und eine Ferienwohnung, die wirklich Freude macht. Danke Simone.

Idyllisch gelegene Ferienwohnung im viktorianischen Stil mit Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

Die von uns gemietete, saubere, gepflegte und gut ausgestattete Wohnung entsprach in jeder Hinsicht der Beschreibung auf der Webseite: Wunderschöner Blick auf die Kreidefelsen und das Meer in ständig wechselndem Licht, von den hinteren Räumen blickt man auf einen schönen, alten, viktorianischen Garten.

Schneller Zugang zum Strand über eine Treppe auf der anderen Straßenseite. Dort sind bei Ebbe lange Spaziergänge in beide Richtungen möglich (festes Schuhwerk bzw. Gummistiefel empfohlen). Auch oberhalb des Strandes gibt es einen gezeitenunabhängigen Wanderweg.

Die Wohnung verfügt über einen zugehörigen Parkplatz direkt vor dem Haus.

Wir wurden von der Vermieterin sehr nett und persönlich empfangen und mit Informationen zur Wohnung und Tipps zur Umgebung versorgt. Einige von uns leider vergessene Einkäufe wurden uns freundlich, schnell und unkompliziert nachgesandt.

Wir können die Wohnung guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen.

Urlaub wie man es sich wünscht!

  • 5 of 5

Zum 4. Mal durften wir im Holland Cottage verweilen! Es ist immer wieder schön und wir freuen uns jedesmal auf den zauberhaften Ausblick aufs Meer!

Die Ferienwohnungen sind vorbildlich sauber, mit allem ausgestattet was man für die Selbstversorgung braucht und richtig gemütlich eingerichtet!

Die Vermieterin ist sehr hilfsbereit. Sie erteilt auf Wunsch Tipps über Ausflugsziele, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten oder Veranstaltungen in der Umgebung!

Langweilig wird es dort nie. Der wunderschöne Strand ggü. des Hauses lädt zu langen Spaziergängen ein, die auch für Kinder zum Erlebnis werden! Die alten Schmugglerhöhlen in den Felsen machen neugierig und man findet immer etwas besonderes am Strand, (Muscheln, Krabbenscheren, und andere Schätze)!

Mit Schaufel und Eimer ausgerüstet können schöne Sandburgen entstehen oder man lässt einen Drachen steigen...unseren Kindern hat es sehr gefallen und uns sowieso!

Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!

Das Richtige um sich zu erholen!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine Woche Sprachferien mit unseren 3 Kindern. Als wir diese Ferienwohnung im Internet fanden, waren wir gleich begeistert. Auch nach der Ankunft wurden wir nicht enttäuscht. Das Haus und der Ausblick sind super. Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und alles ist vorhanden, was man für einen entspannten Aufenthalt benötigt. Wir wären am Liebsten den ganzen Tag am Fenster geblieben und hätten das Meer beobachtet. Die Kinder konnten zum Strand und Muscheln sammeln. Es war ein riesiger Spaß. Die Vermieter waren super nett und sehr hilfsbereit. Vielen Dank für eine gemütliche Woche!

These self catering holiday apartments in Kent are located on the outskirts of Broadstairs. It is a great accommodation right opposite the sandy Kingsgate Bay. Here you will find the sea in front, an old castle (Kingsgate Castle) to your right and a comfortable family pub the Captain Digby to your left. The rear of the holiday apartment is surrounded by the North Foreland Golfcourse, which is overlooked by the nearby North Foreland Lighthouse. The famous surfing and holiday beach Joss Bay is right next to Kingsgate Bay. Broadstairs ( home of Charls Dickens) town centre is in walking distance (about 30 min). You can even walk to Broadstairs along the beach when the tide is out. You can enjoy the sea view from your holiday apartment. Canterbury is about 30min away by car. It is a very beautiful town. To London you can go by train in about 1h 10min.
