About the property

Coastguard cottage, set in a beautiful location with a rural feel, faces Pegwell Bay known for its wildlife and seashore birds. The cottage offers two light and airy double bedrooms and one twin, all with ample storage space and crisp cotton bedding. We also offer further sleeping for two in our multi space loft area, which has a high spec comfortable sofa bed, free view television and dvd player...this is also a great space for the children to hang out. There are two hi spec bathrooms, one with a bath tub, both with showers.

We have a spacious lounge with ample seating for eight people and a wood burner to keep you warm and cosy during the colder months. There is a television with Dvd player offering all of the free view channels you would expect and the cottage has wifi throughout. From the lounge double doors open out onto our spacious bright garden, a great space for outdoor dining or just lounging in the sun. If you want to take it inside, the conservatory room overlooking the garden has a large dining table and is moments away from our well equipped kitchen featuring a double oven, microwave, toaster, family sized dishwasher and washing machine, we have all the pots pans and crockery that you will need for your stay. We have a long driveway offering parking for multiple vehicles and a garage for storing bikes and leisure equipment.

Pegwell is an idyllic rural retreat only 10 minutes drive or a 20 minute coastal walk away from Ramsgate, Royal harbour and cafe culture. With London St Pancras only 1hr 10 minutes away by rail. The Viking coastal cycle trail runs through here and we have two lovely village pubs both offering ring side views of the bay...a glass of something watching the most amazing sunset from one of them is a must. On a blustery day the bay is a magnet for kite surfers. The Pegwell bay nature reserve is on your doorstep a great place to explore and take in the sea air. The historical Cinque port towns Sandwich and Dover are 20 minutes drive away and Canterbury around 30 minutes, In the opposite direction you can visit Broadstairs and Margate for their restaurants, sandy beaches and the Turner contemporary, one of the UK's leading art galleries. Whether you choose to do it all or just sit and relax we are sure that you will have a wonderful break at our lovely coastguard cottage.

A beautiful cottage in a very interesting location. My family love staying here.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we've enjoyed a holiday here. Five of us including our daughter and two young grandsons enjoyed the well equipped and beautifully appointed cottage. The garden was greatly appreciated by our two keen footballers. There was plenty of room for us to entertain some visitors and with the fine weather we were mostly able to eat outside . The boys wanted to swim in the sea so we enjoyed the local beaches but also went to the Hornby visitor centre and the Spitfire and Hurricane museum. This year I was more appreciative of the special ecology of Pegwell Bay. A lovely week.

Very nice and clean property with lovely garden.

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased with the property. However there is no comfortable seating. This goes for both the indoor and out door furniture. The benches used for both are particularly uncomfortable and there is insufficient seating without. We were only there a few days but had it been longer it would have seriously spoiled our enjoyment

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We haven’t received negative feedback regarding the dining or outdoor furniture before. However we do pay attention to guests feedback and strive to provide comfortable well equipped accommodation. We plan to install 2 more high backed chairs which will make 6 in total and provide seat cushions. Thank you, we hope that you will stay with us again in the future.

Lovely holiday and beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in Kent. The Coastguard cottage was just perfect for us. Seven of us and three generations were easily accommodated. The garden was perfect for the two little boys and the cottage is beautiful with a spacious lounge, lovely bedrooms and bathrooms and a modern well equipped kitchen. Everything is clean, bright and comfortable. We enjoyed walking along the cliff above Pegwell Bay as well as exploring the local sandy beaches.
