This Grade II-listed flint cottage is a piece of Margate history. Formerly part of the Cobb brewery, in years gone by it was a barrel store. Now, complete with original old beams scavenged from ships, it is a two bedroom holiday home. Set quietly back from King Street, in the heart of Margate's famous Old Town with its shops and cafes, The Old Barrel Store is two minute's walk from the Turner Contemporary gallery, the sea front, Dreamland & seconds from all the Old Town's various attractions.
The Old Barrel Store is perfectly set up as a boutique couple's retreat or for a family. Facilities include: - 1 double bedroom - 1 twin bedroom (can be set up as a king size) - spacious living room incl retro sofa bed - well equipped kitchen/diner - bathroom with rain shower over bath - courtyard garden with relaxed seating and dining table & chairs, umbrella, BBQ - off road parking (a rarity in the Old Town!) - highchair, travel cot, step up stool, bed guard, children's tableware - DVD player, FreeSat, Speakers for your music player - toys, books - wifi.
Furnished largely from Margate's range of antique and vintage shops there's lots to look at and be inspired by. Egyptian cotton bedding, blankets to keep you warm and 200 year old flint walls to keep you cool! We also provide kitchen basics to get you started for your trip and a great guide to local activities and places to eat and drink.
