“Home from home-by the sea”
Reviewed 2 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Well equipped lovely place to stay in such a good location close to the seafront.
The house was really comfortable and with outside secure space for Dixie(our dog) and our car. Dixie loved the sandy beach.
We only stayed for 3 nights and spent our time enjoying Broadstairs as we had chosen a brilliant few days of weather.Will be back.

“FILLED WANTS AND NEEDS FOR ALL OF US, EVEN TEDDY DOG.......”
Reviewed 10 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This was our second visit to Broadstairs having discovered it last November, after wanting somewhere new to stay for a short break. It was good to be able to check in at 2pm instead of the usual 3 or even 4pm check in times. It was a beautiful sunny Friday afternoon when we arrived, and we appreciated the double gates being left open on our arrival as the road can be quite busy sometims, and we didn't exspect to be greeted by anyone, as we had researched the property, so we were aware of the routine on our arrival. WE are seasoned holiday renters, so it was lovely to find a pint of milk, Tea, Coffee, Sugar and Cake to hav on our arrival. Always a welcomed gift from any owner renting their property, Thankyou so much.
There are wonderful walks here, for my husband and Teddy our Lhasa Apso, he just loves being on the beach in the sand. The Sea Front is a great place to sit and just look out to see on a lovely sunny day. I love the old Regency Buildings, the whole town is steeped in history too. Just down from this Bungalow is a Crazy Golf Course.
It was nice to look out of the windows and see such beautiful historic buildings as well. There's the Wrotham Arms around the corner, and the traditional Corner Shop, very handy. Being as l have a back condition, it was lovely to be all on one level, the bed was lovely and firm, and of course no steep stairs to deal with. It was lovely and warm to stay in, fortunately the snow that had fallen the previous week or so had gone. The weather wasn't too cold either, just chilly in the evenings. The Monday was the best day, being sunny and warm. Hubby walked along the Beach when the tide was out, to Margate to what he had been told was allegedly the biggest Witherspoon's in England. It it is housed in the old Pavilion on the Sea Front, he sat upstairs in the open in the sunshine. He said he wasn't sure how many Covers the did, but he was sat on Table 509. He caught the bus back, which worked in nicely, as it stopped just outside the Corner Shop, very handy.
We made use of all the local Takeaways, so many to choose from too, Chinese, Indian, Pizza, etc. and of course the Traditional Chip Shop.The local Bakery served some lovely cakes. We used the Tesco express, l found it rather helpful as coz we had Teddy, there wasn't really anywhere to sit and have a Sunday Roast. I cheated and got a Pre Cooked Chicken, some Microwave Veg and New Potatoes in Tesco, and did those for Sunday instead, while hubby watched the Australian Grand Prix, with a beer in hand. A very relaxing afternoon it was too.
Hubby enjoyed the local hostilleries in the town,and visited a couple he hadn't been in last year. As was last year, we found Broadstairs to be filled with very friendly and helpful Locals. On the whole a very dog friendly town, even a dog friendly Cafe or two.
WE really enjoyed our stay at The Boat House, even though most days were sunny/cloudy, we only gad one really wet day on the Thursday.WE were sad when it was time to go home, the week went so fast. Teddy enjoyed both garden's, always a bonus for us with Ted, and the Parking space took the stress from hubby, worrying about remembering to paying car parking fees.
The Boat House definitely ticked ALL Our Boxes.
Thankyou so much for a wonerful week in your property. Everthing within a short walking distance,
WE look forward to visiting this wonderful Bungalow in the future
Best wishes
Julie, Peter And Teddy The Lhasa Apso

“Excellent accommodation, pet friendly, beach and shops on your doorstep.”
Reviewed 28 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Clean and tidy accommodation in a great location just off the main road into Broadstairs, easy parking at the rear of the property. Fabulous beach and a good variety of independent shops all within a few minutes walk away. A good base to visit Walmer, Margate, Westwood Shopping Centre 10 mins drive away and the beautiful city of Canterbury an easy 25 min drive away (use Sturry Rd Park & Ride). Nice to have good quality accommodation that is pet friendly and would have no hesitation in returning.

“Perfect location, pet-friendly, well equipped and cosy”
Reviewed 25 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The Boat House is a little oasis. Situated in an area of three and four storey imposing period properties, we totally missed it at first. However, the location could not be better, only minutes from several beautiful sandy beaches. The bungalow really is well equipped, possibly too well equipped, as there was so much crockery, so many glasses and mugs, and tons of general kitchen equipment that there was hardly any storage space for the supplies we had brought with us. However, there is a generous fridge-freezer, which helped.
The bungalow was clean and tidy, if a little tired. Bath towels were provided, but surprisingly, only one hand towel which we all had to share [not something we have encountered before!] A minor improvement would be some hooks in the hallway to hang coats, dog leads etc.
There is a pebbled garden, which is secure enough to allow dogs to roam in first thing in the morning and last thing at night. It is a bonus to be able to park the car on site, though it does not leave a lot of room, but even so, there was enough space and seats and benches to allow us to towel dry our dogs and brush the sand off outside after their splashy walks.
We were lucky that our visit coincided with the Broadstairs Food Festival, which was well worth a visit. Ramsgate is a lovely walk, over the top of the cliffs, through a little park, and back along the beach [after a very fine fish and chip lunch].
All in all, a comfy, very relaxing and enjoyable week for all [three adults and two dogs.]
