About Sarah Beeson

I live with my husband and two children close to Reading in South East England. We are about as far from the coast as is possible in the UK, but we love the Kent seaside, and try to visit Broadstairs whenever we can.

Sarah Beeson purchased this house in 2007

Why Sarah Beeson chose Kent

My husband grew up in Broadstairs and still has family there. He has now passed his love of the area on to the rest of family! Broadstairs is one of those rare places with character that has something to offer all age groups and tastes. We believe the beaches to be some of the best in the South East and there is lots of choice when it comes to bars, restaurants, tea houses and ice cream parlours - all within walking distance from the front door of the house. Interestingly this corner of Kent seems to have a micro climate all of its own and I often hear it is sunny in Broadstairs when the weather is less good elsewhere!

What makes this house unique

We have tried to make the house a 'home from home' rather than another characterless hotel like venue. As we have children of our own we know the problems in trying to pack their necessary belongings into even a larger car and with this in mind we have tried to provide what our younger visitors might need. Several older guests have told me that they particularly like the house as it has a shower and toilet on the ground floor and a staircase with several half landings for rests while climbing! We are registered and inspected on behalf of the local tourist board and we are always pleased to receive any feedback from our guests...

Guestbook comments from the owner

'A real home from home.'



'Thank you for the local paper, and for leaving out things for a cup of tea on our arrival.'



'Our children loved the bean bag in the living room!'

Property was in a good location, close to beaches, town and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Booking property was easy and the owner responded to queries quickly and tried to ensure that we had everything needed for a great holiday. There was a large TV in lounge and plenty of games and books. The master bedroom also had a smaller TV. There was a small garden with enough room for eating outside. The bedrooms were bright and beds were comfortable. Kitchen was small and there was no dishwasher although there was a washing machine that we used and a large fridge freezer. There was a small table in the kitchen but room for a table seating 6 in the lounge/diner. There was no wifi although I think the owner is looking in to providing this in the future. There are lots of wifi hotspots in Broadstairs and lots of free wifi in pubs and restaurants. This property worked well for us and the price was very reasonable. We felt that it was good value for money.

Location location........

  • 4 of 5

We had a super week staying at this house in Broadstairs. The location was spot on for us, a very short walk to the beach and town meaning we could pop "home" for lunch and avoid all the traffic and parking hassle in Broadstairs. The house was easy to find and off-street parking directly outside was useful. The house is not particularly modern but was clean, tidy and well equipped. Nice little garden with outdoor seating, good size bedrooms. Decent TV but we did miss broadband for the week! Sitting room furniture was not very comfortable but the beds were good. Would recommend staying here, happy with the value for money on offer and had good instructions from Sarah, the owner.

Lovely area when the weather is good (as it was every day for us) we visited the beaches at Margate and Ramsgate, walking along the coast, but preferred Viking bay at Broadstairs.

We were lucky enough to see the Wednesday night fireworks, they were amazing!

Special interest holidays:

The local tourist board has lots of information depending on your interests (www.visitbroadstairs.co.uk)

Broadstairs is a fabulous destination if you are interested in walking. We particlarly recommend the walk between Broadstairs and Ramsgate over the beaches (www.walkingclub.org.uk/book_3/walk_101).

The area is also very popular for cycling. There are many wide car free routes. For the more adventorous, the 26 mile Viking Trail runs through the town(www.bikers-delight.com/cycle-tours/viking-coastal-trail).

For art lovers, the new Turner Museum is located in nearby Margate (www.turnercontemporary.org) and many a happy hour can be spent in the galleries in the adjacent old part of the town.

Coast/Beach:

Broadstairs’ Viking Bay (5 mins walk) is one of the best beaches in the South East. It is a deep sandy beach that is well sheltered from all but the worst winds – making it ideal for spending the day playing and swimming. There is Summer entertainment on the beach for children including trampolines and swings, low tide rock pool and lifeguard service. The coast at Broadstairs is spectacular for walking and cycling, with great walks along the promenade and rides along the clifftops.

Travel:

By road: Excellent road links with the M20 and M2 motorways close by provide easy links from London and its airports via the M25 orbital motorway.

By rail: The new hight speed rail link is now in operation with frequent trains between London Victoria and Charing Cross, and Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate. Southeastern Trains- Tel: + 44 (0) 845 000 2222

Distances:

Ramsgate with its maritime history and Royal Harbour is only a couple of miles along the coast. There are great restaurants overlooking the harbour, not to mention the Casino and Arcades. Cliff-top walking in Thanet is fantastic and from Ramsgate you can walk all the way to historic Sandwich.

The cathedral city of Canterbury is only a 25 minute drive away.

Westwood Cross Shopping Centre with many household name shops is just 10 mins drive.

Children have Howletts and Port Lymph zoos.

Further Details:

Broadstairs is a traditional English seaside town that is wonderfully unpretentious and unspoilt. It has an association with Charles Dickens that includes a Museum, Bleak House and Dickens festivals with locals in fancy dress. There are enchanting little cottages and fishing boats which bob in the quaint harbour. However the calm of the town belies the fact that there is lots to see and do. There is a traditional high street with a good variety of independent retailers, together with many fabulous restaurants, pubs, cafes and bars. There is a bandstand overlooking the main Viking bay beach, to which there is a lift to provide easy access. During the Summer there are weekly firework displays, donkey rides, a traditional Punch and Judy show and kiyak hire on the beach. A promenade offers scenic coastal walks to adjacent bays and beaches. The night life in Broadstairs is lively and varied. In early August the town holds its immensely popular Folk Week which attracts musicians and artists worldwide. There is a small cinema in the town centre and a large modern cinema at the new Westwood Shopping Centre (10 mins drive). The coast at Broadstairs is spectacular for walking and cycling, with great walks along the promenade and rides along the clifftops. Additionally there a number of other beaches to explore within easy walking or driving distance. The local tourist information centre, located in the Dickens museum has lots of information about Broadstairs and the surrounding area which is available on request.
