Crampton's Cottage is part of a terraced row built in the 1840s to house workers constructing the railway line that connects Broadstairs to Ramsgate and Margate. The line now links the beautiful Thanet coastline to London's St Pancras International Station and London Victoria Station. The cottage is a minute's walk from Broadstairs railway station, and five minutes walk from the pubs, restaurants and lovely sandy beaches at the heart of the town. While small, the cottage has two double bedrooms, a spacious modern fitted kitchen, and a cosy living room with a sofa-bed. There is room to park a car in the front yard, and further parking is available at the side of the house. The cottage's unique character is enhanced by a collection of the owner's original expressionist artwork. You are renting the whole house including a small enclosed back yard that is very useful if you want to store bikes etc as there is a private side entrance. -- Having said that our neighbour, Maggie, has the right to use this entrance when she needs to. The Neighbourhood We are directly next to the train line. Our guests all agree that the trains are not noisy as they are slowing down for the station. There is a corner shop around the corner and so is the High Street. Everything is extremely close -including two pubs that can get busy at peak times. The neighbourhood is generally quiet (despite the trainline and pubs nearby). Make sure you explore St. Peters as well, a beautiful village with good pubs like the Yard of Ale (Thanet CAMRA Pub of the year 2016) It is a charming cottage with cul-de-sac access to the footpath. It is a small and cosy place, but very bright and convinently located.More

Great location for beach,town, station. Lovely cosy cottage. Owners and house keeper really friendly and helpful. You can hear the trains, but you soon get used to it, so it won't bother you unless you are a very light sleeper.
