Sleeps Up To 12. A 6 Bedroom, 6 Bathroom Period House With Stunning Sea Views
About Jacqui Barwood
Welcome to our family friendly holiday home. With 3 children of our own, we understand what makes the difference on holiday and so we have equipped the house as a real home from home. As well as a separate family games and TV room, the house is equipped with everything you need for younger children including 2 high chairs, 2 travel cots and lots of children's games and toys
Jacqui Barwood purchased this House in 2012
Why Jacqui Barwood chose Westbrook
We fell in love with SeaView House as soon as we saw it. With stunning views out over the sea and a Blue Flag beach at the bottom of the steps, it is perfect for family holidays. We spent almost 2 years restoring this Grade II listed Victorian town house back to its former glory. The house is full of original Victorian charm complete with a large and elegant first floor sitting room with a covered verandah to enjoy the sea air. Outside, it's straight onto the coastal footpath - turn left to Westgate on Sea and right to Margate with the Turner Contemporary Gallery and charming Old Town, complete with galleries, cafes and restaurants. At the rear is a lovely secluded garden.
What makes this House unique
Our house is large and well equipped. It is possible to sleep up to 12 people. However the house is arranged so that it is also possible to be let as 2 fully separate units: Firstly, a 2 bedroom apartment, complete with 2 ensuite shower rooms, a large open plan sitting room/kitchen and a small self contained rear courtyard. Secondly, a 4 bedroom house with 2 ensuite shower rooms a family bathroom and further shower room. The house also enjoys a large dining room opening into a modern kitchen, a large and elegant first floor sitting room with covered verandah and sea views and a separate family TV and games room, which opens out to the rear garden.

Perfect for a family gathering
We we’re a party of ten, including two families of four. This house accommodated us with a bedroom to spare. There were nearly as many bath/shower rooms as bedrooms and the large living- & eating areas made for plenty of social space. The house is furnished and decorated to a high standard and everyone commented on how comfy the beds were! Kitchen was very well equipped for catering larger parties, with plenty of fridge/freezer/wine cooler storage.
Location is great, within a terrace overlooking the sea, with a sandy beach just adjacent. A nice 10 minute walk along the seafront takes you in to Margate beachfront proper. The sea view is visible from the dining room, top floor double bedroom and middle floor living room, which also has the bonus of a balcony.
All the street parking was occupied when we arrived Friday evening, but we unloaded outside as it’s not a busy road and were able to park in streets adjacent, moving cars outside as we spotted spaces coming free.
Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay as a large group and we would love to return.
50th Birthday weekend
Lovely house located overlooking the sea. Ample on street parking while we stayed.
We had the whole house for the duration of our stay which gave us so much room we loved it!
Excellent equipped kitchen in the main house that had lots of plates, pans, glasses etc that were all of high quality.
Would definitely recommend for large groups/families.
Comfortable house with lots of character.
Very family friendly house. Very good position. Margate continues to improve, and Thanet is an underrated gem. We will happily return if the circumstances allow.
Great House and Perfect Location
Lovely warm house with plenty of space and very well laid out for large groups.
Plenty of bathrooms. Location perfect as it is just minutes from all the attractions.
I along with 6 friends spent a great weekend at 8 Sea View Terrace, in celebration of my 50th Birthday. 4/1/19 to 7/1/19
We were able to cook nice meals and then relax in various bits of the house, as there is ample space
It has all the mod con’s you need, including 2 Kitchens and most of the bedrooms are en-suite.
All of my Friends really loved the house and were very comfortable.
The house is a very short walk from the station.
Would definitely stay again.
Fabulous family holiday
This is our second stay in this fabulous house. The superb accommodation allowed three generations to happily holiday together. Excellent location right on the seafront a ten minute walk from Margate. Kids loved crabbing and of course Dreamland. Whilst they were in Dreamland we walked a lot. There are some lovely eateries in Margate especially in the old town. I'm sure that any other week this summer we would have had better weather but it didn't stop us enjoying ourselves. Hopefully we will be back next year.
Margate is home to the new and highly acclaimed Turner Contemporary Gallery as well as a vibrant Old Town, home to artists studios, galleries restaurants and cafes.
Margate is also home to the Grade I listed Shell Grotto, a wonderful underground grotto comprising over 4.6 million shells
