About the property

Holiday Home in Broadstairs Viking Bay, Kent - A Stone's Throw To The Beach, Restaurants And Shops

Charming Holiday Cottage situated in Broadstairs within a 1 min walk from beach at Viking Bay. Always worth contacting me for last minute rates and special offers. Broadstairs is a idyllic area with its traditional seaside and narrow streets. Charles Dickens lived and wrote "David Copperfield" here and you can visit Bleak House and Museum. Newly renovated and decorated to a very high standard, Green Cottage is laid out to either suit a family, a group or two families comfortably. Spacious and bright with four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a ground floor cloakroom and a ground floor shower room, large kitchen, living room, dining room and secluded courtyard garden this is the ideal holiday home in the most fantastic location making it a real Gem.

About Gary & Debbie

We are a married couple nearing 50 with kids that are aged from 14 - 21 and close family. We all love visiting Broadstairs whenever we can and use the cottage as a place we can all get together as its spacious enough for that. Gary and his brother bought the cottage very run down and renovated it to a lovely high standard a few years ago. It was unrecognizable as the same place and has a bit of a luxurious feel to it which I love. We know you will love it too! Debbie & Gary

Why Gary & Debbie chose Broadstairs

The location is second to none in Broadstairs making this a very special cottage indeed. Its so bright and airy tucked down a mews street just a road away from the old town high street and the beach at Viking Bay. Because we are set away from the road its a quiet hideaway with the feel of a tardis inside that the front of the cottage doesn't portray. It has some original features like quaint stained glass windows and also a contemporary feel in the way it is furnished that works well together.

What makes this house unique

No need to drive once you have unloaded the car as everythings right on your doorstep. Tucked away on a mews street, with a secluded courtyard garden, you can sun yourself with the sounds of seagulls nearby and breath the healing salt air being so close to the beach and without the sound of traffic outside the door. If staying in the ground floor bedroom why not open up your french doors onto the courtyard and relax in bed with the sea breeze fluttering the curtains. If staying in the master bedroom you could take your breakfast on the small balcony, opening up the french doors to the room and letting in the sea air.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Myself and my family had a very enjoyable holiday last week at Green Cottage. We thought the cottage was lovely, the decor really superb and can appreciate all the thought and hard work gone into making this a beautiful cottage. (Not to mention the cost)! Thank you for letting us use your cottage for our holiday. My family and I spent a week at your house in broadstairs from 21st August - 28th August this summer. May I say what a lovely week we had and how gorgeous the house was.

We had a great few days in Broadstairs and Green Cottage provided us with fantastic accommodation. We found it presented really well and couldnt fault it in any way. Thanks again.

Perfect holiday accommodation. Wonderful, warm and welcoming house. cleverly designed and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families with 3 children 5-8 between us. Everybody loved the accommodation. One family travelled to Boradstairs by train and it was very easy, he other by car, also easy and parking spaces very nearby so absolutely not a problem that there is no parking with the property.

The location is perfect, a quiet little lane a stones through from the shops and restaurants. Also a very short walk to the beach. Even on a November weekend we had a fabulous time walking the Viking trail and playing on the beaches.

Fantastic holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay over New Year. House was lovely, very clean and well equipped. Worked really well for two families sharing. Would definitely recommend and would go back.

Although as stated there is no on-site parking, we had no problems finding spaces only a couple of minutes walk away and certainly didn't see this as a problem.

Green cottage

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely bank holiday weekend here with a party of eight. We cannot fault the cottage at all, it was lovely, spacious, well equipped and very close to the beach and local amenities. Parking was not a problem, lots of parking on nearby street. Looking forward to coming back again.
