Our cleansing and disinfecting measures are inline with industry and govt protocol. Our cleaner wears disposable gloves and a mask while cleaning. Antibacterial soap, hand sanitiser, cleaning products and wipes are in the cottage for you to use during your stay. If you need to cancel your stay with us at short notice due to Coronavirus or self isolation, we will aim to re rent and exchange your stay for another date (of a similar price). You don't need to tell us when you want to stay when cancelling, contact us when you know your dates later on. For everyone’s health and safety, we request that you don't come if you are feeling unwell. Thanks. We are attached to a larger building, and the outside of the building is undergoing renovations - these should have been finished by now but have overrun due to coronavirus work restrictions. The month of July has price reductions because of this - available dates July 27-31st (4 day stay). This is a pet free and non smoking property, for the comfort of future guests. Dickens Walk Cottage is ideally and centrally situated for a short break: 15 metres from the front door to the promenade overlooking Viking Bay's 150m long sandy beach and Chiappini's café (our favourite place to sit with a tea and look out to sea) and less than a 2 minute walk to shops, post box, cinema, restaurants and the best fish and chips in Broadstairs. Many of our guests are repeat customers. The cottage is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic getaway or for small families wanting to relax on the coast. We have bookings all year round, there is always something fun to do here whatever the weather. The property has a large wall mounted TV with Sky box (features internet tv with amongst other things: Iplayer, Itv player, Amazon Prime, Netflix (with your own account). We also have a DVD player and a selection of books and games for your entertainment (very lovely for rainy days). The kitchen is fully fitted with an induction two ring hob (instructions provided) and microwave oven. Please note, the fridge does not have a freezer compartment and we don't have a conventional oven. Broadstairs Cottage is pet and smoke free. For the comfort and convenience of all our guests we cannot accommodate your cat or dog no matter how well trained they are, sorry. Property has a double bedroom, a single bedroom, bathroom with large walk in shower, open plan kitchen/living room for maximum family interaction and if you have an under 3 year old, we have a highchair and cot available to use free of charge, please let us know in advance and we'll get them ready for you). Our cushions, pillows and duvets contain feathers More

About the neighbourhood
During the 19th century, Broadstairs was a grand seaside town, with Charles Dickens a frequent visitor. Today, with a population of 24,000, it remains a picturesque place to get away from it all. In 2007 and 2008, the Guardian newspaper voted Broadstairs runner-up 'best seaside town in Britain'. In summer, the bandstand has a full programme of entertainment and the folk festival in August brings live music and activities for all throughout the town. Beaches. Surrounded by seven bays, the closest, Viking Bay, is lined with 150 metres of golden sand and in summer has lifeguards, donkey rides, Punch and Judy shows and trampolines to keep the kids happy. Nearby Joss Bay is a surfing beach with lifeguards. Equipment is available for rent (www.jossbay.co.uk). Other Things To Do. Spend the day...
