Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a fantastic 2 night stay at Fisherman's cottage- it is quite literally by the beach, only a 2 minute walk away. The cottage was charming and had everything you could need for a couple of nights at the seaside. Phil was a great host. We booked very last minute, and he was very accommodating. Would totally recommend! Thanks!! Lisa and James

Fisherman's cottages Broadstairs

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in these cottages for over a decade, several times in 2, Church Square & the upgrade is amazing with the fully equipped basement kitchen we loved it.

Might I suggest a couple of points:-

A warning note / sign about the low headroom on the basement stairs into the kitchen diner.

A warning-note / label about the switch on the first floor landing for the

toilet 'sanilav' system.

The front door lock is a bit sticky.

Thanks for another cracking week..Bryan & Janet

Beautiful cottage in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this cottage due to a wedding in nearby Margate and what a find it was! The property happily accommodated two couples and a newborn baby.

If I had to pick the most ideal location in Broadstairs, this would be it. The cottage is picturesque and tucked away in a beautiful courtyard area opposite a church, but with the seafront just footsteps away and all of the shops, restaurants, pubs, bars and tea rooms you could want in the immediate vicinity.

The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable with a lovely kitchen, comfortable beds and a pretty fireplace to sit around. The area was surprisingly peaceful at night given the central location. The property even offers free wifi.

Phil was a superb host, offering clear instructions and checking in regularly to see that we were comfortable.

Highly recommend - thank you very much!

As a 6 footer I found it cramped!

  • 2 of 5

This property is comprised of 4 small rooms spread over 4 floors, which are

connected by 3 steep, narrow staircases. The property description includes 'garden' but this was a gravel bed outside the front door. We found it difficult to fit 4 adults into this property, but it was clean and tidy and the location is good.

Owner's Response: "Dear Simon. Thank you for your comments. I would like to point out that I have advised that the spiral stairs has a rope hand rail and also the stairs are steep, which is very common for these unique fisherman's cottages. I do apologise that you found it cramped but you must take it into consideration that these cottages where built in the 1800's and most people where a lot smaller in those day's and I think the photos show it very clearly. I do not advertise that the cottage has a garden, it is in a shared courtyard, so I am not sure where you got that information. Also you forgot to mention the plants in the flower bed that compliment the pea beach stones. Thank you for your custom. Kind regards. Phil.

Warm, cosy cottage hidden away in the centre of Broadstairs

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot for a weekend break - everything you could need (bar a colander) and right in the middle of Broadstairs, hidden away in a little cul de sac of similar cottages.

We enjoyed Broadstairs but think the cottage is not suitable for the elderly (we are both 83) or people with any infermity. There should be a warning.

Also we dislike your aggressive approach such as demanding a date for replying .

Owner's Response: Dear Jeanne. Thank you for your review. I am so sorry that you found the cottage not suitable for you. I would like to point out that if you had read the information and looked at the photos you would have realised that the cottage had spiral stairs as mentioned in the information and you could see quite clearly in the photos. As far as an aggressive response in demanding a date to reply, this is certainly not from me and I can only presume you are talking about leaving a review, which you should take up with HomeAway. It is a shame that you didn't mention the response and care I gave you in giving you all the information you needed for your stay and speaking to your husband over the phone, making sure everything was okay. I am sorry I did not know your ages and your husband sounded quite young over the phone. Kind regards. Phil.

The cottage is within easy reach of great beaches, local shops, restaurants, bistros and wine bars which are all only a minute's walk away.

We will work hard to ensure that your stay here in Broadstairs is both comfortable and enjoyable so hopefully you'll want to return again!

An excellent selection of pubs, restaurants, bistros & take aways you can experience; Italian, Mexican, Indian, Thai, Chinese, or traditional English food are all within easy walking distance.

If shopping is your pleasure, drive out to the new Shopping Centre at Westwood Cross, just five minutes' away, where you will find a large selection of shops and a department store.

If you enjoy the outdoor life, then take a walk along the Viking Coastal Trail or visit historic Canterbury only 30 minutes' away by car or train.

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.

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 town's ancient maritime past is nowhere more clearly seen, than in the huddle of cottages, old customs house & 16th century weather-boarded boat house which nestles around the harbour.
