About the property

1 bedroom. Own entrance, garden, parking. Free wifi. 1 small dog allowed

Just 55 mins from London, this is the perfect retreat and just 2 minutes 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 built 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 has 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 suits 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 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 has been re-decorated and new carpet fitted for 2018. It's a quiet space to the rear of the building with a size double bed with a super comfortable memory foam & spring combo mattress. Perfect for a peaceful night’s sleep. There’s also a chair & side table, chest of drawers and hanging storage space.

As you'd expect your bed will be made up ready for your arrival.

This is an ideal retreat for couples and small families, but we do have the sofa bed if you want to bring friends. It’s perfect 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 £25 per stay for additional cleaning.

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

Why Nikki H chose Sandgate

The apartment is in a lovely location, walking distance to the shops, cafes, bars & restaurants of Sandgate and just a couple of minutes from the beach.

What makes this apartment unique

Our home has it's own front and rear entrance which gives the feeling of a cottage more than an apartment.

It also has it's own little patio garden to the front with table and chairs, perfect for enjoying a chilled glass of wine at the end of a summer's day.

Great spot beautifully kept and very well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location, walking distance to everything. Nikki and her husband were very obliging when we arrived earlier than we expected and went out of there way to make sure everything was ready for us, even leaving us a fresh loaf of bread. Travelling from Canada with a 2 year old can be a bit of a challenge so the extra space of a flat as opposed to a hotel room was a no brainer, and she adored the beach. Thank you. We hope to stay again soon.

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
