5/5 Excellent

Beautiful character cottage quintessential Broadstairs
Beautiful cottage full of character typical of its era which has been superbly renovated. Its has everything you need and is in a great location for the town and beach. Very steep stairs though - not for the very young or elderly but we loved it!

5/5 Excellent

Great location
Would recommend to anyone

5/5 Excellent

Charming old cottage in heart of Broadstairs
This is an excellent little cottage in the heart on Broadstairs. The renovations have been done to a high standard and you have everything you need in the cottage. It is small and the stairs would be a challenge for anyone with mobility issues, but this is clearly highlighted in their listing, so no surprises. Phil was really good with communications. We'd definitely stay again.

4/5 Good

Cosy stay
Fabulous cottage, great location so close to the beach and shops etc. Lovely cosy cottage well presented. All you could ask for.. Thanks.

5/5 Excellent

Great Cottage
Great cottage in a lovely location. The town and beach are all within easy walking distance of the property. The only negative point is the parking. This isn’t a reflection on the cottage but the town car parks are very expensive. The advert does state that free parking is available on Eastern Esplanade but this obviously does get very busy. If staying for a week it would be worth getting a permit. The cottage is very clean and well equipped. Would recommend and stay here again.
