The Beach Retreat is a terraced 3 bedroom house, conveniently positioned for all local amenities, especially the lovely sandy beaches of Minnis Bay. The L-shaped kitchen dining room and shower room are newly fitted and is light and spacious. A lovely private garden with decking and steps down to a grass area and gate to back of property, handy for dropping bags and entrance to and from the beach. Minnis Bay has a number of cafes and restaurants, the park is a couple of minutes walk away along with a general store. The surrounding area is flat and ideal for bike riding and walking. At the beach there is a crabbing pool, beach huts for weekly rental, plenty of car parking, public toilets, lifeguards in peak season, bike hire, cafes and a pub. It is family friendly beach with lots of sand at low tide. It is quiet, relaxing, friendly and we love it!
We are a family of 6 who live about 1 hour from Minnis Bay. Both my husband and I work and the children are school age. We often pack up on a friday evening and drive down to Minnis Bay for a weekend by the sea. We love it as we find it so relaxing. In the winter we wrap up warm bike ride, walk and play in the park. In the summer we play on the beach, swim, BBQ and enjoy the summer sunshine. This is very much our second home and we use it throughtout the year.
Verity Batchelor purchased this house in 2010
We purchased the house as a weekend get away for our family. Minnis Bay is a lovely area with lots to see and do close by. We love the beach, swimming, crabbing pool, the children boogie board and we relax. Minnis Bay is a sandy beach with beach hut rentals. There is a cafe, pub, large car park and toilets. The village of Birchington has everything you need and we love it. It is filled with families and we find it a very safe place.
When we purchased the house we extended the kitchen, added a shower room and toilet and knocked through into the dining room. This gives a lovely light spacious area to cook and eat in.
