Property type apartment

About the property

Sleeps 4. 2 Bedrooms. 1 Bathroom.

Located moments away from the cliffs of Folkestone Harbour, this seaside period home boasts two bedrooms, modern kitchen & bathroom across two floors and a private terrace.

This Sea-view Sunny full of character home spans across two floors perfect for sea-side getaways. Moments away form the famous White Cliffs of Dover for hikes and walks by the sea and the bustle of Folkestone Harbor with its new fine dining and water fountains.

Seafront restaurants serve freshly caught fish boasting small independent fisheries along with three posh-nosh three brand new restaurants including Rocksalt ((website hidden)) and the best fish and chips in Kent ((website hidden))

Further West takes you on the most incredible seashore walks toward elegant Sandgate and Sandgate Castle. The pedestrian road spans miles so perfect for roller blading or biking as far as the eye can see...

This close to the sea you are only 52 minutes on the train to the heart of London and a boat ride to France.

Whilst this property is basic and comes with the very simple furnishings and basic utensils, it is a charming and low cost, spacious property full of its own quirks. It has been used by holiday makes for a few years, whilst some prefer a more opulent interior, others appreciate the low cost for a spacious property and easy access to the centre.

The flat compromises of two floors (ground and lower ground) with spacious living room and private terrace, modern kitchen and two spacious bedroom with large sunny windows. This lovely period house is embellished with Bacchus, the Greek God of Wine on the front facade paying tribute to its tavern & coach-house heritage.

We always supply fresh milk, wine, basic breakfast options, fresh towels and fresh bedding with spare blankets, wifi code and all gas and electric included in the price.

Not recommended with families with very small children due to wood staircases to the living room in the lower-ground level.

The property is past of a whole house with another flat on 1st and 2nd floors. The upstairs flat is occupied by long term tenants. We ask all our guests to respect their neighbours and their cat.

About Folkestone

Originally a small fishing village, Folkestone developed during the 17th century into a much bigger town able to protect the coast from wars and invasions from the Continent. At the beginning of the 1800's the town included a harbour and, with the railways in 1843, it's seaside resorts became a fashionable tourist destination shaping the town's prosperity.

The town features many activities, such as indoor winter sports, walking by the sea or in its award winning Coastal Park, shopping, sightseeing. Over the last years lots of regeneration has been taking place like the new Creative Quarter, a part of the old town transformed into an artists area full of quirky cafes, galleries and boutiques gorgeous restaurants.

Folkestone has always been a busy transit town for people travelling to France, with the Channel Tunnel the town has got very good connections to the continent. High speed services reach Ashford International and Ebbsfleet and the journey time to London is around 52 minutes. Even by car, Folkestone is located at the end of the M20 and on the A20, Ashford, Maidstone, Canterbury, Dover and London are accessible.

About Chil

I am an art curator working in London and Kent. My husband and I also work with neon lighting.

Chil purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Chil chose Kent

Folkestone has always been a beautiful holiday destination but has lost some of its shine to introduction of cheap air-travel. But the sea with its beautiful walks, friendly people and some fantastic properties have remained. Along with recent investment by Roger De Haan Fokestone is begging to reinvent itself as a cultural hub of the English coastline and caused the art scene in Folkestone to explode.

What makes this apartment unique

Seagulls and fresh air aplenty!

Seaside Townhouse 2 Bedroom Flat With Private Terrace
average rating of 4.3333335 based on 3 reviews
Louisville, LA

We really enjoyed our stay in this flat. The location is good for the price. The owner is very nice.

  • 4 of 5

Folkestone is an interesting city and we enjoyed exploring the area. Though it was January and not seaside weather we found things to do. The flat was quite functional and cozy. The kitchen did lack in cookware and the shower is off the kitchen which was a little strange. The upstairs unit was unoccupied most of the time but when there were people present you could hear them walking about. The windows are not well insulated and outside noise at night woke us several times. However for the price the unit is quite satisfactory, location good, and the owner very nice and accommodating.

Gute, einfache Unterkunft nah am Sandstrand, Hafen und Innenstadt

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt genossen, die Wohnung war einfach ausgestattet aber sauber und großzügig mit bequemen Betten. Die Vermieterin war sehr nett und zuvorgekommend. Folkestone ist landschaftlich sehr schön gelegen und die Stadt hat eine gute Auswahl an netten Cafés, Restaurants und Kneipen. Der Lower Leas Costal Park ist sehr schön angelegt und toll mit Kindern, der Warren war zu dieser Jahreszeit zu matschig aber wenn es trockener ist sicher toll zu erkunden. Die Zugverbindung nach London ist sehr schnell und Canterbury ist auch nah.
