About Peter and Sarah

We feel in holiday mode as soon as we arrive in Broadstairs. We love seeing our daughter run free on the beach - such a change from the busy roads of London where we live. We first came to Broadstairs on daytrips from London, meeting friends who live here. It gave us the widest smiles to just be here. So, after we had our son and had settled down a bit in London, we looked for a way to be able to come to Broadstairs as a family more often, and we were really thrilled to find this lovely cottage. We love it and we hope you will be as enchanted with it as we are.

Why Peter and Sarah chose Broadstairs

Forge Cottages is newly built, so it's warm and cosy, and yet has lovely traditional features like the flint stone wall and archway at the front. It is a really easy walk out of the front door and down just one short road to the seafront, the beach and all the lovely cafes and shops of Broadstairs.

What makes this cottage unique

Forge Cottages is a perfect holiday house. It is practical and easy to live in and makes your holiday so easy and enjoyable because everything is so close. Leave the car in the courtyard - everything is accessible on foot.

We accept bookings by bank transfer or PayPal - contact owners for details to pay by bank transfer.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Broadstairs before and the whole family (4, 3 and a 1 year old) had a fantastic stay. Wonderful beaches, lively town centre and lots to explore. Couldn't recommend it more and we very much hope to return.

Comfortable accommodation located just a few minutes away from the beach and Broadstairs centre.

  • 5 of 5

We ate out so only used the kitchen for hot drinks but it seemed to be well equipped. Our bedroom was comfortable and the whole house was clean and tidy. Parking at the back of the property is handy. Broadstairs itself is good with some interesting places and lovely cliff walks. Loads of places to eat for all tastes and pockets.

Lovely little cottage close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay at this cottage, which was only a couple of minutes walk away from Viking bay beach, and had convenient parking in a private courtyard. The kitchen had everything in there we needed, and the owners had helpfully left some washing tablets and dishwasher tablets which lasted the week. Rooms were clean and comfortable, though possibly could benefit from some double glazing to cut down on noise from passing traffic people, especially in the front bedroom. Overall, we loved the week, and were very happy with the cottage.

Lovely property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Forge Cottage. The house is very clean, well equipped & well maintained. The 5/6 walk down to the beach also made everything very convenient. We would love to return another year.

Many thanks to Peter & Sarah.

Broadstairs is an absolute gem. It’s a friendly, unspoilt, classic seaside village. You might want to head straight to the beach (a walk of a matter of minutes) and enjoy the freedom to run, chase, cartwheel or flop on the sand. Or you might want to wander along the lanes behind the beach, scoping out the cafes and shops or heading straight for the famous home-made ice cream at Morelli’s.

There are lovely sandy beaches all along the coast. Viking Bay is in the centre of Broadstairs, but a short walk or cycle ride takes you to more secluded spots such as Joss Bay, Stone Bay or Louisa Bay. Cycling is easy and family-friendly along the Viking Cycle Route which runs all the way round the headland from Ramsgate to Margate and beyond. There are surf schools, boat trips to see the seals, nature trails, or just looking for shells on the beach and peering in the rock pools.

There is plenty of historical and cultural interest too. Dickens visited and wrote about Broadstairs and there is a Dickens museum in town as well as Bleak House where he stayed. In Margate, there is the Turner Contemporary gallery, the wonderful retro amusement park, Dreamland, and the shops and galleries of Margate Old Town. There are lots of festivals of live music, theatre and creative arts in Broadstairs through the year with plenty of activities to entertain children, from the famous Folk Week to the period costumes of the Dickens festival.

There seems to be a blossoming of new places to eat in Broadstairs, with great quality food in lovely settings. These sit alongside local treasures that have been in town for generations, such as the wonderful Neapolitan restaurant, Osteria Pizzeria Posillipo, with the best pizza and sea views in town.
