About Mandy Weston

Hi, I'm an archaeologist and TV presenter and live in London with my daughter.

Margate has undergone major regeneration in the last two years and was recently listed in the Guardian as the holiday destination for 2013. It's perfect for holidays or weekends away and boasts one of the most beautiful sandy bays in Kent with plenty of activities for all ages including fun beach activities, jet-skiing and windsurfing. The newly commissioned Turner Gallery with views across the bay is situated in the very location from where Turner painted his sunsets and is a must-see.

Mandy Weston purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Mandy Weston chose Kent

I love Margate which has re-emerged as a British holiday hotspot. The delightful town is filled with vintage furniture and clothes shops, as well as cafes, bars and restaurants.

The iconic Dreamland complex on the seafront has now been newly refurbished and will provide a further host of other entertainments including live music from June 2017 whilst retaining a retro vibe.

Nearby Botany Bay is a quiet, natural sandy beach with a Cornish vibe. 75 miles from London, Margate is easily accessible by motorway or high speed train from St Pancras in less than an hour and a half. The property is perfectly situated near town, beach and station so that most places are walkable.

What makes this apartment unique

This period apartment is located in a quiet terrace, a stone's throw from the sea. Steps lead to a sandy beach giving a private feel, and there is a cafe and crazy golf course, ideal for small children. The rooms are stylishly decorated, and furnished in a contemporary and vintage style. The main reception room boasts a fabulous bay window with incredible views of the sea, wonderful at sunset. There are plenty of local shops, takeaways and other amenities nearby and the train station is a five minute walk away. There is also off-street parking. The famous towns of Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Whitstable are close by and slightly further afield, places such as Sandwich, Deal, Sittingbourne and Canterbury are well worth a day trip.

Weekend in Mandy's Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mandy's apartment and the whole week-end was lovely. It's nice to get out of London now and again. I will be recommending her apartment to all my friends and family. Nothing is too much trouble for her. The apartment is ideally situated between Margate and Westgate which was really convenient for us. Thanks Mandy.

Great flat with lovely views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in Margate. The flat was perfect for our needs, in a great location a few minutes walk from the centre of town and right on the beach. The view was superb. Well equipped kitchen, good selection of dvds and even buckets and spades for the kiddies. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return

Great Margate Base

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four, two adults, a 9 year old and 6 year old. We really enjoyed our stay in the comfortable apartment. Great location, basically right on the beach and within walking distance of the town. Very accomodating hostess who was not in a rush to get us out. Thanks for a good stay

A fantastic seaside retreat! Wonderful sea views.

  • 5 of 5

Arriving on a wet and windy evening, I was greeted by the lovely Wendy (housekeeper) who made me feel immediately at home as she showed me into the warm and inviting flat. The place has a wonderful, modern yet somehow retro vibe and I was very happy to stay here and was sad when it was time to return to reality! I would definitely book Seaview Terrace again, if only for the amazing sea view from the window!
