About the property

1 bedroom with own garden and allocated parking and free wifi

Just 55 mins from London, this is the perfect place to retreat to and it's only 1 minute from the beach! Located in the seaside village of Sandgate, our home has a private patio garden to the front and allocated off-road parking.

This is a gorgeous garden flat on the ground floor of a 4-storey building which was built sometime in the 1800’s and offers approx. 54sqm / 577 sq ft of space.

It has a wonderful cosy cottage feel about it and boasts the sole use of the gated front patio garden with private access from both the front and rear of the building.

The front entrance porch offers practical space for shoes and coats and leads to a generous lounge, complete with 2-seater sofa-bed and 2 armchairs. Our new sofa bed includes a comfortable small double memory foam mattress (4ft x 6ft).

With a large window to the front, this is a very light and airy room and is complimented by the solid wood flooring that befits the charm and the character of the building.

For entertainment we have a flat screen TV with Freeview, Chromecast, Sonos and Wi-Fi internet access plus a varied selection of DVDs and books.

Moving on into the kitchen and dining area you will find the kitchen is well equipped with a electric oven, gas hob, fridge & freezer, microwave oven and washer dryer and cupboards packed with plenty of pots, pans, crockery & glassware, cutlery & utensils. All that you might need for a short or long stay. There is seating for 4 and an extending table.

The inner hallway provides access to the bathroom and bedroom and there is also rear access to patio and parking.

The bathroom is modern and spacious and only recently installed in late 2015. It consists of WC, basin and a generous sized walk-in shower. You will be provided with towels for your stay and we also keep a supply of shampoo, conditioner and shower gels available which you are welcome to use.

The bedroom is a quiet space to the rear of the building with a standard size double bed with a super comfortable memory foam & spring combo mattress. Perfect for a peaceful night’s sleep. There’s also an armchair & side table, chest of drawers and hanging storage space.

As you'd expect, we provide bed linen and your bed will be made up ready for your arrival.

This is an ideal retreat for couples, but we do have the sofa bed if you want to bring friends or family. It’s perfect for anyone interested in water sports, walking, cycling, relaxing by the coast or as a base to visit the many attractions around Kent and surrounding areas.

Guests with children or with mobility issues should be aware that there are 8 quite steep steps down to the road from the front patio garden and a further 8 to the rear. There is currently a handrail to assist at the front only.

Local amenities within metres include a village store, Post Office, and various pubs, restaurants and a wonderful tearoom.

The lovely village of Sandgate fringes the English Channel and spans 2.5 kms of Kent coastline between Folkestone and Hythe. It's just a few minutes from both towns by car or bus or a flat seafront walk or cycle ride. You'll find beaches with long views over the Channel.

There are plenty of places to visit including Folkestone's Lower Leas Coastal Park, the "World Famous" Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch miniature railway, Dover Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, Port Lympne Wild Animal Park and many more wonderful spots throughout the Kent countryside or if you prefer you can jump on a ferry and head to France for the day.

We are happy to accept 1 small, well-behaved dog at a charge of £15 per stay for additional cleaning.

Please note: Minimum booking during the summer holidays is 5 days and must be within a Saturday - Saturday week frame. Please contact me prior to booking if you are unsure, I will do my best to accommodate where possible.

Alojamiento acogedor

  • 4 of 5

Hemos tenido una estancia muy agradable. Lugar tranquilo y muy cerca de la playa.

El sofa-cama era bastante incomodo para dormir . Recomendaría a la propietaria que lo cambiara por otro más comodo.

Excepto el detalle del sofa, todo lo demás pefecto. Totalmente recomendable.

Owner's Response: Hi Jose Many thanks for your feedback. I'm extremely sorry you found the sofa bed uncomfortable. We do provide a mattress topper and until now we have received only positive feedback. However, I confess we are looking at replacing anyway and hope that we will have that in place soon. I want the "right" choice, not just any choice. I appreciate that you found the rest of the property favourable. Many thanks for your honesty. Nikki H
