The Retreat is a very romantic Georgian apartment occupying the first floor of a landmark listed building, part of the original seafront parade in the heart of Margate. It has many period features including a lovely window seat from which to admire the spectacular sunsets that captivated Turner. All rooms are spacious and comfortable. The sea is never far away with direct views from the lounge, master bedroom and kitchen/dining room.Guests have full use of the apartment and all amenities. Hotel grade bedding and towels are provided. Children over 7 and 'babes in arms' are welcome but the apartment isn't suitable for toddlers due to quirky changes in floor level. Visit The Retreat for a relaxing beach holiday or a chic mini-break. There is plenty to do for people of all ages who just want to leave the car and relax.

'The Retreat' is essentially 'Flat 1' and the entrance is on the side street next to Huckleberrys Cafe. Strangely, you have to turn the key anti-clockwise to gain entry. Knowing these small details will save you a bit of stress on arrival!

The apartment is clean and tidy and full of old world charm. It has been thoughtfully equipped by the owners including plenty of kitchen equipment (only thing missing was a cheese grater which I added!) a large selection of books and DVDs and a toy cupboard that our children very much enjoyed exploring.

Margate itself is in much need of renovation. The food outlets were highly priced and subsequently empty despite it being 'high season'. Lots of litter around, despite the local Council's best efforts with daily collections and many litter pickers which was sad to see and resulted in some very early and very noisy wake up calls from the seagulls.

The beach is clean and pleasant so we spent our days there, returning to...

We had a great stay, The Retreat was extremely comfortable and also very convenient for the Turner Gallery and Margate old town.
The view over the harbour was lovely whatever the time of day.
A well equipped apartment, a comfortable bed in a lovely bedroom, a good kitchen and dining area and a bathroom with a bath and a shower which is a bonus.
The owner kindly left us milk, juice and eggs in the fridge and of course there was a supply of tea and coffee etc...
We noted the interesting supply of books and DVD 's, not that we had time to make use of them unfortunately.
We highly recommend this property if you are planning a visit to Margate.
