Holiday Rental House
A pet free and non smoking property, Dickens Walk Cottage is ideally and centrally situated for a short break: 15 metres from the front door to the promenade overlooking Viking Bay's 150m long sandy beach and Chiappini's café (our favourite place to sit with a tea and look out to sea) and less than a 2 minute walk to shops, post box, cinema, restaurants and the best fish and chips in Broadstairs. Many of our guests are repeat customers. The cottage is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic getaway or for small families wanting to relax on the coast. We have bookings all year round, there is always something fun to do here whatever the weather.

About the neighbourhood
During the 19th century, Broadstairs was a grand seaside town, with Charles Dickens a frequent visitor. Today, with a population of 24,000, it remains a picturesque place to get away from it all. In 2007 and 2008, the Guardian newspaper voted Broadstairs runner-up 'best seaside town in Britain'. In summer, the bandstand has a full programme of entertainment and the folk festival in August brings live music and activities for all throughout the town. Beaches. Surrounded by seven bays, the closest, Viking Bay, is lined with 150 metres of golden sand and in summer has lifeguards, donkey rides, Punch and Judy shows and trampolines to keep the kids happy. Nearby Joss Bay is a surfing beach with lifeguards. Equipment is available for rent (www.jossbay.co.uk). Other Things To Do. Spend the day...
How to get there
Location and Directions Tucked away in the north east corner of Kent, Broadstairs can be reached easily from London: Trains leave regularly from St. Pancras and take 82 minutes. The cottage is a ten minute walk (or short taxi ride) from the station. By car, it’s one hour from the M25, along the M2.
