Bay Cottage Bliss!
We had a wonderful two night stay at the pretty & quaint Bay Cottage in Broadstairs. The cottage is a stones throw from last that the picturesque Broadstairs has on offer. Restaurants, bars and of course the beach. We all enjoyed it so much we will be returning again in the future. Only one downside is there is only one toilet and very steep stairs. Besides that it really was a lovely place to stay. Thank you.

Lovely cottage in the heart of Broadstairs
We had a great time at the cottage, it has charming period details, and is quiet, but close to all Broadstairs' bars and restaurants. The owners gave us all the details we needed to make the most of our stay and were extremely helpful when we had any issues.

Lovely time in Broadstairs
Spent a relaxing six days in Broadstairs and this beautiful cottage was, for us, the perfect place to stay. It was clean, comfortable and included all the amenities you need for a break away. We were lucky with the weather and so made good use of the lovely garden, the garden chairs were very comfortable and was a great space to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner or just to sit and relax in. The sitting room was a relaxing place to sit too. It's also a great spot to 'people watch.' This cottage is close to the Beach, Shops and Restaurants. Would highly recommend and would love to stay there again.

Lovely cottage.
Firstly, I would like to point out that I like to make reviews as accurate as possible so others can get an accurate account of the property. I bookedd this property as the one I normally stay in (Canterbury) had already been taken. Having looked at the listing I had Great Expectations (see what I did there)...This house lived up without a doubt. It's a charming house full of character. Well equiped and with a wonderful courtyard garden. I was travelling with a small dog (Queenie) and she was also made very welcome....well done to the owners for these extra touches. This cottage is one of about 6 owned by the owners and I think it is safe to say that if they are all to the standard of this one you can book with confidence. So you may ask why 4 stars and not is a slight down side. I booked under the impression that this was a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house. In fact there is a main bathroom on the first floor and a shower in the top floor bedroom (this was very handy additional facility). However travelling with two elderly pensioners (my in laws) made the bathroom situation a little lacking in privacy. So I think in conclusioin this is a great house for a couple or a family, but not one for adults travelling together. That siad this is the only 'niggle'....we coped. Would definately recommend and come back - with Queenie but I would leave the in-laws at home next time.

Beautiful cottage in prime spot
We fell in love with Broadstairs. Such a wonderful seaside town, oozing charm and spoiled for choice with so many wonderful places to eat and drink. Our cottage was small but atmospheric - so much history and we loved how authentic it felt. Quite basic in terms of amenities and the living space (esp dining table area) was smaller than we’d expected - but everything we needed for a short break - comfy beds and lots of hot water. And 2 mins walk to one of the best beaches so location spot on! We really appreciated being able to check in a little earlier on arrival - thankyou.

Bay Cottage
Lovely homely cottage, with a great outside space for eating if the weather is good. We found, probably due to covid that the tea shop next door put out tables outside each morning, which unfortunately were very close to front of house and often woke us up early due to noise. But overall a great stay and would recommend.

Absolutely Wonderful
We had a lovely time staying in this cottage in Broadstairs. The location was great being right on the high-street and incredibly close to the beach. The house is a quaint and quirky cottage and really cosy.
