We plan to reduce this to 48 hours in September. * * * * This is a lovely garden flat on the ground floor of a 4-storey building built in the 1800’s and offers approx. 54sqm / 577 sq ft of space. It has a cosy cottage feel about it with sole use of the gated front patio garden with private access from both the front and rear of the building. The front entrance porch has practical space for shoes and coats and leads to a generous lounge, complete with 2-seater sofa-bed and 2 armchairs. The sofa-bed includes a comfortable small double memory foam mattress (4ft x 6ft). The lounge is a light and airy room with solid wood flooring that suits the charm and the character of the building. We have a flat screen TV with Freeview, Chromecast, Sonos and Wi-Fi internet access plus a varied selection of DVDs and books. Through the door to the kitchen (newly fitted in 2020) and dining area, which is well equipped with all new appliances including electric oven and gas hob, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, microwave and washer-dryer along with cupboards packed with plenty of pots, pans, crockery & glassware, cutlery & utensils - all that you might need for a short or long stay. There is seating and dining space for 4 guests. The inner hallway leads to the bathroom and bedroom and there is also rear access to patio and parking. The bathroom is modern and spacious and consists of WC, basin and a generous sized walk-in shower. We will provide bath towels for your stay and we also keep a supply of shampoo, conditioner and shower gels available which you are welcome to use. The bedroom is a quiet space to the rear of the building with a double bed with the most comfortable memory foam & spring combo mattress. Perfect for restful sleep. There’s also a chair & side table, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The bed will be made up ready for your arrival. This is an ideal retreat for couples, but the sofa bed allows for friends or a small family. It’s perfect as a base to visit the many attractions around Kent and surrounding areas. Guests with children or with mobility issues should be aware that there are 8 quite steep steps down to the road from the front patio garden and a further 8 to the rear. There is currently a handrail to assist at the front only. Local amenities include a village store/post office and various pubs, restaurants, tearooms and various shops all within meters of the property. The village of Sandgate fringes the English Channel and spans 2.5 kms of Kent coastline between Folkestone and Hythe. It's just a few minutes from both towns by car or bus or a level seafront walk or cycle ride. You'll find beaches with long views over the Channel. There are plenty of places to visit including Folkestone's Lower Leas Coastal Park, the 'World Famous' Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch miniature railway, Dover Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, Port Lympne Wild Animal Park and many more wonderful spots throughout the Kent countryside or if you prefer you can jump on a ferry and head to France for the day. We are happy to accept 1 small, well-behaved dog at a charge of £25 per stay for additional cleaning. To save any embarrassment, please do not ask about any dogs that are not a small breed. We have an agreement with our neighbours and are unable to offer accommodation for any dog that does not fit this description. **Please note that the minimum booking during peak season is 4 nights and should be within a Saturday - Saturday time frame (or Friday - Friday by prior arrangement). We do have adhoc days and occasional shorter options so do contact me prior to booking if you are unsure**More

About the neighbourhood
Sandgate is perfectly situated between Folkestone and Hythe. Our property is in the heart of the village and just a minute from the beach so from here you can enjoy a stroll to either town or just amble along to browse the gift shops, pick up essentials at the village shop or stop by at any one of a number of gorgeous cafes, restaurants and pubs. Relax and enjoy being by the sea!
Getting around
Bus routes run to and from Folkestone, Hythe, Dymchurch, New Romney, Lydd and Rye, as well as to the historic city of Canterbury from stops just a short walk from the door. Trains from Folkestone West (the nearest station) run to London via Ashford, around the coast to Dover, Deal and Sandwich and on to Ramsgate and Margate or to other places via Canterbury. Alternatively if you'd like to try cycling the area, there is a cycle hire point just a 5 minute walk from the flat. For a day trip to France, get along to Dover and join one fo the cross channel ferries, but be sure to book first or take the EuroTunnel to Calais - you can get there in 35 minutes!
