Crampton's Cottage is part of a terraced row built in the 1840s to house workers constructing the railway line that connects Broadstairs to Ramsgate and Margate.

The cottage is a minute's walk from Broadstairs railway station, and five minutes walk from the pubs, restaurants and lovely sandy beaches at the heart of the town. While small, the cottage has two double bedrooms, a spacious modern fitted kitchen, and a cosy living room with a sofa-bed. There is room to park a car in the front yard, and further parking is available at the side of the house. The cottage's unique character is enhanced by a collection of the owner's original expressionist artwork. You are renting the whole house including a small enclosed back yard that is very useful if you want to store bikes etc as there is a private side entrance. -- Having said that our neighbour, Maggie, has the right to use this entrance when she needs to. The Neighbourhood We are directly next to the train line. Our guests all agree that the trains are not noisy as they are slowing down for the station. There is a corner shop around the corner and so is the High Street. Everything is extremely close -including two pubs that can get busy at peak times. The neighbourhood is generally quiet (despite the trainline and pubs nearby). Make sure you explore St. Peters as well, a beautiful village with good pubs like the Yard of Ale (Thanet CAMRA Pub of the year 2016) It is a charming cottage with cul-de-sac access to the footpath. It is a small and cosy place, but very bright and convinently located.More

The location is excellent, less than 10 minutes' walk down to Viking Bay but also 3 minutes walk to Broadstairs station and bus stops. There is also off street parking, essential in a densely parked area. Great chinese takeaway within 100 yds and fresh fish...More

Great location for beach,town, station. Lovely cosy cottage. Owners and house keeper really friendly and helpful. You can hear the trains, but you soon get used to it, so it won't bother you unless you are a very light sleeper.

Situated between Margate and Ramsgate, Broadstairs is one of Thanet's seaside resorts, known as the 'jewel in Thanet's crown'. In the second week of August each year, the town holds the Broadstairs Folk Week music festival. Music continues throughout the year in the many pubs in the town. The Broadstairs Live!!! website carries up-to-date details of events. During the summer season, and on 5 November the town hosts firework displays and in August the town hosts the annual Water Gala.
