Broadstairs has been voted 'THE BEST SEASIDE TOWN' in the South East to come and stay! Number 2 is a flint-built fisherman's cottage steeped in history. It is tucked away in a pretty courtyard called Union Square, just off Harbour Street, very close to Viking Bay. The cottages were originally built to commemorate the Union of England and Scotland in 1707 and this is where the Square got its name. The cottage is within easy reach of several Blue Flag beaches, local shops, restaurants and wine bars. Number 2 has two bedrooms and can comfortably sleep four people. The cottage is approached from the communal square and up 3 steps to the front door which is on the first floor. You walk straight in to the lounge where there is a comfortable sofa, two armchairs, a TV and DVD player.

You walk straight in to the lounge where there is a comfortable sofa, two armchairs, a TV and DVD player. WIFI is also included. Spiral stairs lead down to the well-lit basement kitchen which is fully equipped for all your culinary needs. It has a large dining table and two benches which comfortably seat four people for dinner. In addition, the kitchen also has a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a door at the side which leads from the kitchen back up a short flight of stairs to the sunny square, where a table and chairs are provided for you to sit and relax. The main bedroom is on the second floor and has a luxurious king-size bed. There is also an en-suite bathroom with a shower, sink and toilet. On the third floor you will find the second bedroom with two single beds and a separate bathroom with toilet and sink. There is free parking for your car on the Eastern Esplanade. This is only a couple of minutes' walk away from the cottage and close to the famous Bleak House where Charles Dickens wrote some of his novels. Just park your car and enjoy the history and beauty of this wonderful old town and its surrounding areas. Being right on the tip of the South East of England, we have our own little micro-climate here producing some of the best weather in the UK. You will be guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome whenever you come to Broadstairs. The town is steeped in history and charm and has been captivating visitors for generations. Number 2 is a fantastic base from which to explore everything the town and surrounding area has to offer. From October to March, we are very happy to accept pets, so why not treat your furry friend to a holiday too? Lovely, dog friendly sandy beaches 2 minutes walk away. *All bed linen, bath and hand towels are provided. More
