One bedroom cottage on two levels.
My family and I all live in a historic grade 2 listed building on the edge of the village of Manston in Kent. It was used as a farm house for many years, but since moving in here, we now use part of the building as holiday accommodation. It's great working from home and inviting guests to stay in our lovely properties. We take real pride in making them as nice as we can, so that our guests can have the best stay possible.
Why Owner chose Ramsgate
Annie's Cottage used to be the servants cottage many years ago, and of course she was called Annie. It was also used as a bakery, and still has the bakers oven in the sitting room incorporated in to the Inglenook fireplace. I am told that it still works but we haven't tried that one yet! The cottage is very pretty with exposed beams, the lovely fire place, and internal exposed flint walls. It has lots of character and is lovely and cool in the summer and nicely warm in the winter. It's just a very relaxin place to stay.
What makes this Cottage unique
There is guaranteed parking within the private grounds outside the cottage which is always very useful, or under the shade of the lovely trees opposite in the warm weather keeping the car cool. We are on hand if needed which too can be very helpful for guests to know that someone is there if they need to ask anything. The location is very quiet and peaceful. There are 3 holiday properties - Annie's Cottage, Well Cottage and The Chapel. Well Cottage also has one bedroom but is all on one level, and The Chapel is a large 3 bedroom house with a 40 foot sitting room, full size pool table, four 3 seater sofas and a large tv. The kitchen is open plan and designed for entertaining. The Chapel can sleep up to 10 guests, and with the two cottages as well all three properties can sleep up to 18 guests, which makes it perfect for families and groups for a special holiday or celebration.

Cosy and peaceful.
A lovely cottage set in the open country, but yet very convenient to take advantage of all that the Thanet area has to offer. Comfortable and cosy, great for a break away. Owner very helpful and friendly.
Thank you so much for your lovely review, and I'm pleased you liked the cottage. It was lovely to see you catch up with friends in the area. It would be great to see you both again.
ideal location lots to see and do all within 30 minuets drive from sea side towns to castles air museums and a major shopping centre on the door step
Thank you for the review, and it was really lovely to meet you both. Hope to see you again.
Lovely hostess. Warm welcome. Comfortable cottage with everything I needed. For most people it would probably be quiet enough. The bedroom windows lacked double-glazing and with driveway and cars in front, a light sleeper may not find it quiet enough.
Thank you for taking the time to write that lovely and very honest review. You are quite right, sadly we don't have double glazing as the building dates back to the 12th Century, and also because of the history, it's grade 2 listed so double glazing sadly isn't allowed. Although guests constantly say how quiet it is here, if you suffer from being a very light sleeper, things that most guests don't hear you sadly do. I am so sorry, that must be so frustrating for you. However, it was lovely to meet you and I hope you find somewhere even more quiet for your next visit.
Left alone lovely.
Knew where to get help if needed
I love that, a lady of few words but good ones, thank you! I did have to laugh as my husband said that when you left you said you had had a good time but you were going somewhere better! He thought that was a little unusual until you the said that you were off to go on a cruise! Yes, I do believe a cruise would be even better and I hope you both have a fantastic time. And thank you, we do like to leave our guests to enjoy their stay in peace, we are there if you need us but other than that we will leave you to enjoy your stay, so it's great to know that you liked that. And thank you for the tin of chocolates and the lovely note. The chocolates have now disappeared once the children found them, but thank you for the ones I did get to enjoy, and I am sure the kids would like to thank you too!
