About the property

2 bed character home. Central Old Town. Close to beach, Dreamlands, Turner

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.

Helen Weidner purchased this house in 2017

Why Helen Weidner chose Old Town

Margate Old Town is rather small, but perfectly formed. Properties which are as central as the Old Barrel Store are pretty rare. Add to the mix the dedicated parking space, pretty courtyard garden and set-back quiet location - it's a gem.

What makes this house unique

Margate Old Town is a really special, vibrant place. The Old Barrel Store has tonnes of history and is very centrally located on King Street, yet quietly set back. We offer parking and a lovely, good sized garden; both rare in the Old Town!
