About the property

Courtyard Apartment close to Viking Bay & shops, restaurants & bars

This light airy basement flat with its own private entrance boasts its own private courtyard to the rear with table and 4 chairs for alfresco dining. If you have never been to Broadstairs before, you have missed one of Kent's best kept secrets. Broadstairs boasts beautiful beaches and secluded bays, with its stunning promenade gardens overlooking thel traditional seaside coastline of Viking Bay. For something historical, visit Bleak House where Charles Dickens was inspired to write David Copperfield, or take a guided tour around Dickens' House. Each June, Broadstairs celebrates a week long festival dedicated to Charles Dickens, and in August, you can enjoy the ever popular Folk Week with its wide selection of live bands and entertainers. There are plenty of water sports to keep you active, or why not have a round or two of golf. For the shopaholics there are streets of unusual and individual shops to the Westwood Cross complex offering plenty of retail therapy to keep you happy.

Beautiful apartment and perfect host

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this basement flat! Our host Romany was absolutely perfect. We had all the details we need and she was very quick to answer any questions we had even during our stay.

I would thoroughly recommend this apartment and would like to return (if possible!) in the future to explore more of the local area.

Lovely flat close to the sea

  • 4 of 5

Flat was great, much bigger than we expected and our daughter loved it. Very close to the sea, and all Broadstairs has to offer. We have already recommended it to family.

The weather was OK most of the time so we go t to use the courtyard garden too.

The apartment is spotless bright and fully equipped.

The only criticism would be the entrance into the apartment is a little tricky, but saying that my wife had a knee operation the week before we came to it and still managed it !!

Lovely little flat in a great spot

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful Easter stay here this year. Everything was as described, and the rooms were slightly bigger and lighter than I was expecting for a basement flat. Everything was in working order, pick up and drop off of keys was straightforward. The location was perfect, just back from the beach and main street, and Broadstairs was a quaint little town. We had a car, and finding on street parking was much as you'd expect, with about a 10 minute walk for a spot - but the street that the flat was on was relatively quiet and it was easy to pull up and load/unload as necessary. The stairs down to the flat are pretty steep and narrow, which meant we stored the pram/buggy in the car rather than carrying it up and down. All in all, with a family of 2 young kids, the set up suited us very well. Thanks for having us Romany! Katherine.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Katherine, I am so glad you found the courtyard apartment comfortable and it fulfilled you and your family needs. In the busy Broadstairs market its difficult getting interest in a one bedroom apartment so reviews such as yours is a great help. Thank you 😊 Romany

Close to the beach and very quiet

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely, comfortable apartment, very close to both the town and the beach and amazingly quiet.

The courtyard is lovely and would be great on a warm evening.

The only problem for us was the narrow steps leading down to the front door. They are difficult for small children and, while it is possible to get a buggy down, it is difficult to manoever a more substantial pushchair down.
