About Fiona Lewis
We bought and restored Home House Ramsgate in 2009. We'd just had our first baby and fell in love with Ramsgate for it's sandy beach and seaside charm. We have since had another child and Home house Ramsgate has given us the opportunity to enjoy many wonderful holidays with family and friends. We love it and hope you will too.

Why Fiona Lewis chose Ramsgate
We loved this house immediately for it's feel and character. A Georgian townhouse with plenty of space to fill with friends and family. The location is perfect as it's situated on a quiet road away from the hustle and bustle - yet only a few minutes away from the town centre and the marina/seafront. Home House Ramsgate is a gorgeous, unique house in a fantastic spot giving little (or tired!) legs the benefit of reaching the beach in several minutes. This proves to be a winner when forced to carry numerous buckets and spades of every shape and size!
What makes this House unique
We put an awful lot of thought into the restoration of this house. Leaving all original features yet building in things like our shower room on the top floor, using tiles made by our friend and acclaimed artist Rob Ryan. We also built a little quirky second WC/en-suite on the first floor. The paint used for the walls is Farrow and Ball as we felt the shades from their catalogue best suited this wonderful property, steeped in history. In 2011 we were delighted to be awarded a blue historical plaque from the Ramsgate Historical Society as Sir William Jordan, New Zealand High Commissioner, was born in the house.

Relaxing, very comfortable,convenient unusual home
Our reason for choosing home house was its location to the yacht club and marina and Waitrose. We were not disappointed and we had a wonderful week as the house was a great place to relax with friends. The beds were fantastically comfortable with excellent quality linen and towels.
On first impressions we were surprised by the quirkiness of the arrangement of the rooms but we easily settled into the house and the way it worked. The kitchen had everything we needed and the spacious dining area was well used as a social hub.
There are lots of stairs but we soon got into a routine of not forgetting anything from the top floor bedrooms to avoid climbing the stairs too many times!
Fiona made the booking easy and was happy to answer queries to enhance our stay.
A lovely relaxing weekend
A lovely house for 5 busy working mums to escape to!!!
Lots of space, nice sitting room to put our feet up in, a big kitchen table to all sit round, and lovely deep bath to relax in!!
Beach just a few minutes walk away, and house tucked nicely away from too much noise, but just round the corner from a great selection of restaurants.
The owner, Fiona, was very helpful and friendly.
Thanks for a great weekend.
Fantastic holiday rental
A group of 6 of us (3 couples) stayed at Home House for 3 nights over the New Year. We have a fantastic stay and would thoroughly recommend Home House to anyone looking to stay in and explore Ramsgate and the Thanet area. The house is exactly as described on the website - comfortable, spacious, lots of character and centrally located (2 minutes walk to the harbor and high street and just around the corner from a waitrose).
A fabulous long weekend in the Spring.
A great house in a great location. We loved the great range of books and games so our 3 and 6 year olds were well occupied on a rainy day after a visit to the Spitfire Museum.
A couple of issues were resolved immediately by Fiona. Fabulous. The four floors meant our thighs were firmer after dashing up and down stairs to get things!
I loved the Robert Rayn tiles.
A gorgeous, chic house
My husband and I often stay in private rentals on the English coast, normally opting for a traditional feel. We fancied something different - and Home House delivered! It is a large four storey terrace house, set one street back from the harbour road. It looks like a traditional seaside/small town terrace from the outside, but the inside is cutting edge cool. Clean lines, hi-spec electricals, large luxurious beds, exposed floor boards, stand alone roll top bath. The kitchen is the entire lower ground floor with a large table to cater for larger groups. There are two living rooms (one little and one large) - one for the kids? - and these are warm and cosy. The shower room on the top floor adjoins two rooms and is tiled with Rob Ryan tiles - just fabulous!
There is a small private back garden, which we didn't use because it is January, but would provide outside space for a barbie in Summer.
Ramsgate is a charming harbour town with a lovely harbour - very close to where we stayed - and a long beach. Great for walks! It was a bit chilly for swimming, so instead, we perused the many charity shops and spent far too long in the very accommodating Belgian Bar on the sea front!
There's lots to explore and Home House provided a cool and charming base to explore it from.
Quaint house with quality facilities
We had an amazing family time over the christmas week with the 3 kids and my parents despite the weather conditions that swept the coastline. The kitchen was a perfect space to enjoy our festivities and Ben the property manager saw to our special requirements to make our stay special. The decor and quality of the bed linen and bedding was brilliant and I would not hesitate to recommend this for family get togethers. The location of the property meant that everything was within walking distance which is a huge advantage.
Ramsgate is a wonderfully picturesque seaside town with a beautiful blue flag sandy beach and a wealth of restaurants, bars and places of interest to visit. With it's Royal Harbour (the only one in the UK) and the old Clockhouse, which houses the Maritime Museum, you can gaze out to sea and relax. Whether you want an energetic holiday walking, cycling or taking part in heart-racing water sports - or pottering around museums and other historical attractions - or perhaps playing golf on one of many championship courses available locally - there are plenty of things for everyone to get involved with, rain or shine. There are some amazing nature reserves, trail walks and a fantastic safari park nearby. Broadstairs, an old haunt of Charles Dickens, is an easy and enjoyable walk, along the cliffs or beach, half an hour away. Canterbury and Whitstable can be reached by bus and train or a short drive in the car. You can even hop on a ferry from Ramsgate and spend the day in Belgium.
