Part of a 250 year old Georgian Mansion the apartments are comfortably furnished including books, videos and games. Every room has a beautiful view either out to sea and the chalk cliffs or towards the Victorian garden at the back of the house. There is an ever changing scene sea scape with the tides, fascinating sea birds, ships to watch either from the windows or the beach directly in front of the property. You have opportunities to play golf straight behind the house, go swimming, go to the children's play area or play tennis. A good idea is to bring your own bicycles with you.

We are a bilingual family and we found this beautiful property sixteen years ago and fell in love at first sight. It is not only picturesque but also historic being linked to the famous Holland Family with interconnections to the famous Spencer and Lennox sisters who descended from King Charles II. King Charles I gave Kingsgate Bay it Royal Title when he landed here on the way to London.

Simone Vince purchased this castle in 1999

When we bought these apartments they showed their former glory but needed upgrading to quality facilities for modern discerning holiday makers. The whole area has also since benefited from the economic prosperity of the South East with excellent new road and high speed rail links. Manston Airport also provides great connections to Europe and the rest of the United Kingdom.

Holland Cottage is unique with its direct access to a secluded chalk-cliffed sandy bay. The famous Kings 'Gate' is opposite the house with steps leading to the beach. The chalk cliffs are often featured in tourist promotions for Kent especially the famous Kingsgate Arch. The chalk cliffs are famous for their fossils and rare sea birds nestling in the caves for birdwatching. The cycle path (also named the coastal trail) is ten pedals from the front door.

A GORGEOUS RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our two children aged 3 and 6 years. We found the flat large enough to house the whole family comfortably, and all the rooms were a lovely big size. There are bunk beds in the children's room and a selection of books and games which was a lovely extra thought. The flat is well stocked with everything you would need to cook for your family every night if you wanted to. But there are also extras that you don't expect, such as warm blankets on the sofas ( perfect for snuggling up when the nights are chillier) and plenty of extra pillows. The flat was also spotlessly clean, which is such a joy when you are away from home.
But the best thing about this flat is the location. The main bedroom and the lounge have gorgeous sea views, and Kingsgate Bay is lterally over the road. This is one of the quieter bays in Broadstairs, and became virtually our private cove. Perfect for strolls and chasing waves, rockpooling and hiding in sea caves. Our children absolutely loved it and we had trouble getting them in for bed!
Not only would we go again, but given half a chance would probably move in permanently.

AN MARVELOUS PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a weeks stay in Sea View. The accommodation was lovely and was exactly as described, and the scenery beautiful. The weather was very kind to us and so we saw the area at it's best. Mrs Vince is so helpful and friendly and she is to hand should you need her, she certainly goes that extra mile. There was only the two of us but our daughter and two children came for an overnight stay with us and the apartment was so spacious we had plenty of room for the 5 of us, and everything we needed, a total home from home. The walks along the coast are lovely and very safe and the views are amazing. It is advisable to have a car as you need to travel a short distance for shopping etc but the Captain Digby pub just over the road is excellent, providing affordable lunch time snacks and a lovely evening menu, both of which we have tried. Children are catered for as well there, with a safe,gated, play area outside and also inside a large enclosed soft play area, and the staff are very friendly.We would definitely recommend a stay at Sea View and we look forward to a return visit. The Vince family are doing an excellent job.

AMAZING PLACE

  • 5 of 5
There is nothing quite like falling asleep to the sound of the sea in a warm cosy spacious well equipped and above all spotlessly clean seaside home, for that is what Holland Cottage is a home from home with the added bonus of a fantastic landlady Mrs Vince, who really goes the extra mile to make your stay work for you. I and my children have escaped London which is approx a 1hr 15min drive away and stayed at Kingsgate Bay repeatedly over the last 3 years and even spent Christmas there. It's a special place. I hesitate in writing this review because I selfishly want to keep this sanctuary to myself, so it remains the quiet unspoilt family retreat I treasure, but in truth, I owe Mrs Vince far too deep a debt of personal sanity not to share this with you, but please don't go there too often, leave room for me.

ERHOLSAMER KURZURLAUB IN HERRLICHER LAGE

  • 4 of 5
Unseren sechstägigen Urlaub im Frühjahr bei größtenteils sonnigem Wetter (wer hätte das erwartet!) haben wir sehr genossen. Das schöne alte Haus ist von Dover aus schnell mit dem Auto zu erreichen und wunderbar direkt am Meer gelegen. Die Fotos versprechen hier nicht zu viel. Unsere Wohnung war gut ausgestattet, mit britischem Charme eingerichtet und uns fehlte es an nichts. Für Stressgeplagte ist der Aufenthalt besonders zu empfehlen - das Handy bleibt im Haus nämlich mangels Netzempfangs meist stumm... Dank des guten WLAN-Anschlusses ist man trotzdem nicht ganz von der Außenwelt abgeschnitten. Empfehlenswert sind natürlich Spaziergänge/Wanderungen am Meer entlang in den Ort Broadstairs und in die Nachbarorte. Bei Ebbe ist der Weg in Richtung Margate unterhalb der weißen Klippen landschaftlich besonders spektakulär. Aber auch einen Ausflug nach Canterbury sollte man unbedingt unternehmen - mit dem Zug ist die sehenswerte Stadt sehr bequem zu erreichen. Sehr gut gefallen haben uns die netten kleinen Cafés und Lokale, die man überall findet und die eine angenehme Abwechslung zum üblichen Einerlei sind (z.B. "The Old Bakehouse" mitten in Broadstairs oder "Be Beached" im Hafen von Margate...). Insgesamt ein rundum erholsamer Urlaub, auch dank des tollen Standortes und der gemütlichen Ferienwohnung!

WAS WILL MAN MEHR....

  • 4 of 5
Sehr schönes Gebäude, sehr nette Vermieterin, sehr schön gelegen. Wir haben mit 4 Erwachsenen und einem Kleinkind in diesem wunderschönen, alten Haus Urlaub gemacht. Auf Grund des Alters des Hauses sind die Zimmer natürlich nicht übergroß, aber das macht auch den Charme aus. Einfach über die Straße und schon ist man am Strand....tolle Sache mit einem Kind. Auch das 5 Minuten Fußmarsch entfernte "Captain Digby's" ist für Kinder eine tolle Sache. Ansonsten lohnt sich auch die Erkundung der Umgebung mit dem Fahrrad - aber kleiner Hinweis: hügelig und, da direkt am Meer, auch sehr windig. Aber es ist sehr schön an der Küstenstraße hoch oder runter zu fahren....man entdeckt sehr sehr schöne Ecken. Ansonsten lohnen sich natürlich auch Ausflüge z.B. nach Canterburry oder Leeds Castle. Canterburry ist ein sehr schnuckeliges, altes Städtchen....und mittendrin: Canterburry Cathedral. Ein monumentales Bauwerk. Wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt. Es war alles sauber, top gepflegt und die Vermieterin war sehr hilfsbereit und nett. Den Kindern steht ausserdem ein reichhaltiges Angebot an Spielsachen für den Strand zur Verfügung. Und am Abend ist der Ausblick auf das direkt auf dem Felsen errichtete "Kingsgate Castle". Wahnsinn. Wir haben die Unterkunft bereits Freunden und Bekannten weiterempfohlen und werden sicherlich wieder hinfahren.
