Coastal Mill Cottage - a cottage that sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Quite simply an idyllic coastal retreat, with bohemian charm, a host of quirky features, stylish lighting and a hint of theatrical drama! This historical cottage is contemporary in design, with a mix of urban glamour and industrial touches that make for a unique and enjoyable stay.

The setting is gorgeous, whilst on the rear side by the garden, the main road leads to the coast along a parade of period cottages, a quiet lane no wider than a single cars width leads to a large open field with walking paths that meanders over to the Blue Flag awarded beach of Minnis Bay. The cottage also has use of a lovely beach hut at Minnis Bay, a great bonus to complete the seaside trip! (Ask the team for more information). The walks and cycle rides are amazing with the iconic Reculver Towers to aim for in the distance on the coastal path

Minnis Bay is the best kept secret along the East Kent Coast and Coastal Mill Cottage is less than a 15 minutes walk away - even quicker on bicycle! After a day's sight-seeing, or perhaps a long lazy day at the beach, retreat back to your self catered cottage and cook up a storm in your quaint bespoke kitchen or make it out to the garden for a BBQ. And in the cooler months, why not cosy up in front of the log burning fire with a good book!

a lovely stay

After a warm welcome, the owner showed us the cottage and told a lot about the activities we could do or places to visit. It's a trendy, lovely, cozy and comfortable cottage. Any questions, anytime, you can phone or text her or her partner.

Sehr schönes kleines Haus, mit Garten. Leider kein Parkplatz am Haus, sehr steile Treppe, Fußboden ein wenig schief, leider nur Englisches Fernsehprogramm

Based in the thriving village of Birchington on Sea and with the wonderful sandy beach of Minnis Bay within walking distance. Minnis Bay is a wonderful stretch of sand coupled with ample free parking and children's outdoor play area nearby. There is cycle hire available at a couple of large seaside pubs and cafes to choose from and watch some wonderful sunsets. Walk to Quex Park home of The Powell-Cotton Museum which houses three galleries of stuffed animal displays, depicting more than 500 African and Asian animals against their natural habitats. An intriguing sight to see!
