Ever Wanted to Stay in a Lighthouse? Try This Wonderful Holiday Cottage Located in Kent

Cottage in Broadstairs, near Botany Bay
In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats is pleased to present Lodesman Cottage at North Foreland Lighthouse.

Lodesman Cottage is one of two holiday cottages available at the lighthouse, which lies on the chalk headland above the charming and unspoilt seaside town of Broadstairs at the far eastern tip of Kent. Both cottages are very child friendly, surrounded by spacious lawned grounds and set well away from cliffs. The holiday cottages have shared use of a very large, one-acre lawned garden and patio with ample space to sit out.

The earliest reference to a light on North Foreland was given in a deed dated 1499 and, at that time, it was almost certain that the beacon was used to warn of attack or piracy rather than as an aid to navigation. The lighthouse does not have a fog signal.

Lovely Stay!
Lovely stay in a unique cottage. The home was clean, well appointed, comfortable, and in a great location. The host was gracious, helpful, and left a beautiful welcome hamper! Highly recommend!

5/5 Excellent

Gezellig huisje, super service en ontvangst!!
Op voorhand een heel aangename babbel gehad met Ann Farmery, die ons de nodige info gaf mbt het huisje en onze aankomst. Daar aangekomen, erg verrast door de heel uitgebreide welkomstmand en het kaartje voor de verjaardag van onze dochter. Gezellig huisje, alles is aanwezig, heel mooi en rustig gelegen. Samengevat, gewoon doen, een echte aanrader!!
