About the neighbourhood
The cottage is within easy reach of several Blue Flag beaches, local shops, restaurants and wine bars. It is tucked away in an idyllic courtyard yet still close to all the amenities Broadstairs has to offer. Broadstairs has an excellent selection of pubs, restaurants, bistros and takeaways - Italian, Mexican, Indian, Thai, Chinese, or traditional English food are all within easy walking distance. If shopping is your pleasure, drive out to the new Shopping Centre at Westwood Cross, just five minutes' away, where you will find a large selection of shops and a department store. If you enjoy the outdoor life, then take a walk along the Viking Coastal Trail or visit historic Canterbury only 30 minutes' away by car or train.
Getting around
We are fortunate enough to have an excellent bus system on the Isle. The Thanet Loop’ is one of the most frequent services in the UK, running on average every 10 minutes and operates 7 days a week, from early morning until late evening. This service provides excellent connections between Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate. Other bus services offered by Stagecoach will enable easy access to the villages. The number 8 bus provides excellent links from Thanet to the nearby city of Canterbury. A ‘Day rider' ticket is ideal for exploring the area, allowing you to hop-on or hop-off at any point, without limits.
