About the property

House in Ramsgate, Kent, England - 6 Mins Walk To The Beach. Brilliantly Located To Enjoy All That Ramsgate Has To Offer!

Richmond Beach House is an early Victorian Villa with many original features. Bohemian Chic filled with loads of eclectic furniture and charm. It offers the perfect backdrop for gatherings with friends and family, for weekend breaks or Summer Holiday fun. There is a courtyard patio-a great sun trap and a larger patio area with an eating area. For those with little ones, a built in garden Trampoline. If the weather turns, which is rare in Thanet as it seems to enjoy its very own micro climate. Set a fire and cosy up with a good book and a cuppa.

The house has 5 bedrooms:

Main Bedroom 1 - is very large room, with a kingsize bed with a en suite sleeps 2 Bedroom 2 - Has a double and small single bed with an en suite. Sleeps 2/3

Bedroom 3 - Double bed. Sleeps 2

Bedroom 4 - Double bed. Sleeps 2

Bedroom 5 - Small double. Sleeps 2

The house has a very large kitchen with the eating area, there are 3 reception rooms-one with the main TV and 3 sofas, the other with a small TV and open fire and lots of seating and finally a good space with a sofa bed, 2 comfy chairs and a desk. The house sleeps 11. The garden wraps around half the house gets the sun for the whole day. There is a patio and sunken trampoline.

I do need to add some Booking Information. Owners Direct have recently changed their policy and it has made the booking process slightly more tricky. The main thing is that if you are interested in booking for a weekend or a full week, it is still pretty straight forward. If you would like to book for any other combination of time, the Owners Direct automatic quoting system just multiplies the day rate which should not be the case. In this instance, please do get in touch with me directly and I can give you the correct amount. I hope this helps with your booking experience.

I look forward to hearing from you.

About vivien Coward

We are Nic, Vivien, Innes and Lachlan plus our dog Daphne. We currently live in Oxford. We loved living in Ramsgate and were all sad to have to move. We miss the seaside.

We own a few properties which I oversee. I also have a Catering/Cocktail Caravan which myself and friend Louise tour around the country doing events and parties. Nic my husband works in Sport.

We love to walk(kids under duress), cook/eat/drink and to travel.

vivien Coward purchased this house in 2006

Why vivien Coward chose Kent

We were living in Victoria Park, London and fancied some sea air so bought Richmond Beach House. We used it for weekends and School Holidays before we moved there a couple of years later. My husband commuted as the new high speed rail link had just been finished.

We were seduced by the sea, the people and the fabulous architecture. Ramsgate is a hidden gem and becoming less and less hidden which is marvellous for the whole area and community.

What makes this house unique

Richmond Beach House is beautifully located in a private but central location with a super enclosed garden and off street parking.

It is a 5-6 walk to the sea and also only 5 mins to the perfectly sized Waitrose down the road. Everything in Ramsgate is walkable with bars, restaurants and the Royal Harbour a stones throw away.

The house is a great size with 4 different areas to choose from for a relaxing, whether it be t.v watching, playing parlour games or Wii there is plenty of space to spread out.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time in your beautiful house. The bedrooms were spacious & beautifully decorated & near sound proof! Babies had a wonderful time exploring and playing in the garden.

A memorable weekend had by all.

Richmond Beach House

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful family friendly house. Spacious, well equipped, clean, lovely bedding and towels (even beach towels). Laundry room. Safe garden for children. Shops within walking distance.

Even the weather was good!

It was my dream home.

And if it was my home I wouldn't want anyone else to use it! Many thanks for making it available. Our family enjoyed a very happy holiday.

With grateful thanks.

Completely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a 30th birthday get together for 10 people. The house is even better than the photos suggest- absolutely beautiful and more than enough room for everyone. We had a great time cooking in the fabulous kitchen and relaxing in the multiple sitting rooms.

The property is very central so it's easy to walk down to the harbour and there's a lovely walk along the beach to Broadstairs which we enjoyed. Vivien was also so helpful in her communications. We had a brilliant time and I would definitely recommend!

A beautiful house

Just a weekend (2 nights) as part of a work study/social trip, and we weren't in the house that much, but it served our needs wonderfully.

Beautiful house in a great location, within 20 minutes of arriving we were all on Rightmove

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for my 40th having had an amazing time when I'd booked it for my husbands 40th last year. The house is absolutely gorgeous and even better than the photos. There's lots of space, the garden is a sun trap, trampoline is a nice touch for kids, everything you need is there and in great condition and the location is perfect for a stroll to the beach or trips to Margate etc

Within 20 minutes of arriving we were all on Rightmove looking at properties, working out commute times to London and imagining our lives living in this dream house. Would thoroughly recommend!

A perfect get-together property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate our dad's 80th birthday and it was lovely. I'll never forget the image of my dad having a whale of a time on the trampoline! So big and spacious and felt really homely. Great location too, close to all amenities. Our dog loved the beach and good that lots of cafes welcomed dogs. The Vinyl Cafe was our favourite. Our mum will be 80 next year so we hope to return!

Broadstairs Beach-Viking Bay 15 min drive continue onto Stony Bay and then onto Josh Bay. Margate is a 25 min drive but vast and spectacular.

The walk from Ramsgate to Broadstairs beach is a delight. Sandy Beach the whole way- much better when the tide is out.

The drive to London is 90 mins. The railway station a 15 min walk from the house.
