Clean and tidy accommodation in a great location just off the main road into Broadstairs, easy parking at the rear of the property. Fabulous beach and a good variety of independent shops all within a few minutes walk away. A good base to visit Walmer, Margate, Westwood Shopping Centre 10 mins drive away and the beautiful city of Canterbury an easy 25 min drive away (use Sturry Rd Park & Ride). Nice to have good quality accommodation that is pet friendly and would have no hesitation in returning.
The Boat House is a little oasis. Situated in an area of three and four storey imposing period properties, we totally missed it at first. However, the location could not be better, only minutes from several beautiful sandy beaches. The bungalow really is well equipped, possibly too well equipped, as there was so much crockery, so many glasses and mugs, and tons of general kitchen equipment that there was hardly any storage space for the supplies we had brought with us. However, there is a generous fridge-freezer, which helped.
The bungalow was clean and tidy, if a little tired. Bath towels were provided, but surprisingly, only one hand towel which we all had to share [not something we have encountered before!] A minor improvement would be some hooks in the hallway to hang coats, dog leads etc.
There is a pebbled garden, which is secure enough to allow dogs to roam in first thing in the morning and last thing at night. It is a bonus to be able to park the car on site, though it does not leave a lot of room, but even so, there was enough space and seats and benches to allow us to towel dry our dogs and brush the sand off outside after their splashy walks.
We were lucky that our visit coincided with the Broadstairs Food Festival, which was well worth a visit. Ramsgate is a lovely walk, over the top of the cliffs, through a little park, and back along the beach [after a very fine fish and chip lunch].
All in all, a comfy, very relaxing and enjoyable week for all [three adults and two dogs.]
A lovely cosy and well equipped bungalow with the bonus of own parking space.
Such a convenient position and close to the beach. Appreciated the children's toy cupboard and the welcome items.
This place is fantastic for a seaside getaway perfect for the beach and town buses right outside for Margate and ramsgate.oh and the dog liked staying here to.
