Spacious apartment with stunning sea views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at Temeraire Court - the apartment was well appointed and excellent value for money. Pity about the weather, but what a comfortable place to come back to on a wet afternoon! The view from the balcony was amazing rain or shine, and Margate's best eating places were a stone's throw away. We'd love to come back again!

very nice place to have a beautiful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for a week and we were very excited to have such spacious and comfortable rooms. Everything was very clean so we weren´t afraid it was like home. Furthermore we did have a private car park and when possible a car park in front of the apartment. A Aldi store is nearby with excellent domestic english food, so everything is like we use to. In addition I have heardt and seen many pups and restaurant within comfortable distance of the apartment. The train station was a bit to far for walking with small children, so I preffered to use my car and I payed in front of the station a whole day ticket . The train is a very cheap option to get to London to avoid congestion when you travel to such a huge and important city. As a final review I would recommend this appartment to families with small children aged between 5- 10 years as a unique chance to have a great holiday.

Margate hideaway October half term 2010

  • 5 of 5

The flat was exactly as described clean and well maintained. Directions to get there useful. The flat is within easy walking distance of the centre of Margate and shops for anyone. The tea, coffee, biscuits and milk on arrival very welcome. Owners very nice people who are easy to access via email or phone if any queries or problems. Loads of places to eat nearby. Would recommend Toby carvery (cheap but excellent food) between Margate and Broadstairs just past shopping complex.(Westfield) Dover castle a must see attraction. Beaches wonderful but time of tides would be useful to know.

Charming, Spotless and Toughtfully Equipped

  • 4 of 5

The two of us stayed here at the end of October ’09 for 4 nights.

First of all was very quick and easy. The owner also provided detailed information, which was very helpful. The first impression when you walk through the door is the ‘quality’ feel. The furnishing, fixtures and all of the equipment provided were not only extensive but all fitted into what I would describe as contemporary Georgian. The second noticeable aspect was how spotlessly clean everywhere was. And then, for me, the view was stunning. Overlooking large lawns onto a wide promenade and then the sea. The apartment is on the edge of town, so a short stroll, but away from the noise of it.

Since the package tourist industry emigrated to Spain a large part of Margate has been neglected. The exception is the old town. Located behind the harbour it is an attractive maze of streets which peppered with galleries, ‘bohemian eateries, a few traditional pubs and various other, some unusual, retail outlets. It seems to be epicentre of Margate’s regeneration as a traditional seaside town which will be given a bigger boost with the opening of the impressive Turner building. The abundance of Blue Flag beaches will no doubt help. A short hop in the car takes you to Broadstairs and Ramsgate, both of which have absolutely charming harbour sides. And a big must is a visit to Canterbury Cathedral.

All in all we had a pleasant few days. I do recommend the apartment we stayed in. Peaceful, comfortable, pristinely clean and well equipped.

Perfect Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for a week and I will try to explain how amazing it was as concisely as possible.

Accomodation: The pictures simply do not do the apartment justice. The apartment is more well-furnished and spacious than the pictures even show. The kitchen and living area is decorated in a classic contemporary style with tons of open space and a breathtaking view of the ocean. The apartment comes fully equipped with cooking supplies, etc. and is set up as truly a home away from home, even down to a spare umbrella in case you need an extra one. The beds are very plush and you just have to be careful not to sleep in too long or you'll miss the beautiful scenery, including a panoramic view of the sun rising and setting. Also, the dining area/living room is equipped with a surround sound system, so bring some nice CD's to listen to while you get ready/cook.

Local Area: Margate is a perfect getaway place. There is an Aldi store within 2 minutes of walking from the apartment where you can get groceries, flowers, etc. Also within 10 minutes of walking you can access a huge variety of shops, restaurants, pubs, bars, beaches, and entertainment. It's a perfect place for anyone because there is beautiful scenery (including beaches you can take long walks on at any time), shops for those that love to do some shopping, all types of delicious food to appease any appetite, casinos and bars for those who love night life, and family events including a theater right across the street and a playground for the kids on the beach. You don't need a car unless 15 minutes of easy walking wears you out and you can't possibly run out of things to do.

Perfect for: Anyone, unless you are looking for busy city life and upscale, expensive shops. If New York City is your perfect vacation spot, then Margate is not the place for you. It has a small town feel, but with so much to do and explore, it feels much larger.

Some recommendations: Bring umbrellas just in case. The local restaurants are great, but buying your own groceries and using the apartment's kitchen to have some quality home cooking time is wonderful too. The apartment is so lovely, you won't mind staying in and enjoying some nice home cooked food. Some local places we went that were great were the Indian Princess (upscale Indian food), Newbys (upscale steak/seafood), and Kabuki (a modern-feeling bar that's good for lounging/and or dancing).

As the first seaside resort in the country, Margate has drawn visitors ever since the 1730s. Being only 26 miles from France the weather tends to be warmer than the UK national average! The 700 year old harbour has been upgraded with pretty shops and restaurants. The picturesque old town is getting well known for (it's arty) boutique / individual shops and eateries - including The Ambrette, winner of the best restaurant in Kent. A choice of beautiful sandy beaches and coves to suit all tastes - and loads to see and do. Our apartment is in Cliftonville, under a mile from the train station - ( so you can visit) linking to London in 90 minutes. Or just watch the glorious sunsets from the comfort of your recliner armchair. The famous painter JMW Turner said 'the skies over Thanet are the loveliest in all Europe”. Temeraire Court is named after one of his most famous paintings ' The Fighting Temeraire' The Turner Contemporary Gallery (with free entry) designed by the renowned architect David Chipperfield is a short walk from our apartment. Also visit the curious Shell Grotto, the wonderfully preserved Tudor House, and local museums. Then there's The Winter Gardens (where many famous groups perform) hosting various entertainment throughout the year. One not to miss, the newly re-opened (at a cost of over £18m ) historic Dreamland Amusement Park with its iconic Scenic Railway and traditional attractions. For the more active, the scenic Viking Coastal Trail is a 27 mile-long route or six shorter themed routes for cycling or walking. Bike hire is available locally.There are several golf courses in the area too. Watersports are very popular and jet skiing, surfing, boat trips and fishing are all readily available Visit Thanet Information Centre for up to date information on whats on during the year. Temeraire Court is ideal for a romantic break, or family holiday - in fact everyone!
