The space

Our house is a few minutes walk from the sea in a quiet street. Street parking is usually readily available. It's a 10 minute walk from Ramsgate railway station, and 7-10 minutes from the Harbour where the coaches stop. There's a local bus stop about 3-4 minutes away

The first floor double bedroom has a view of our garden, the room is about 12x16 feet and the bed is a 4' double, very comfortable. There is a table for writing, a wardrobe and chest of drawers and lots of books and tea and coffee making facilities; there's wifi, but no tv in the room, but you can use one downstairs if you want to. We have central heating. The bathroom is a few steps away, or there's a shower room on the floor above. Our fantastic Victorian house is a work in progress. It's traditionally decorated with lots of antiques and old paintings and prints, but parts are not yet decorated (this room is!). It's quiet, and you are welcome to sit in the small pretty garden with a drink...

If you have small children they could sleep in the room with you for a small extra charge. This room accommodates a maximum of 3, but could accommodate a family of 4 if the children are very small.

We also have a separate single room on the second floor - listed here as The Other Room - it needs to be booked separately. In exceptional cases we can offer the use of the sitting room double sofa bed - but we'd need to negotiate that!

We normally provide a continental breakfast, but a cooked breakfast can be separately negotiated for a reasonable charge if you let us know in advance. Again, if you tell me in advance you can eat supper with the family for an extra charge. We're interested in other people, but we can guarantee privacy if you want to be alone.

Ramsgate is a beautiful small town with wonderful sandy beach, ideal for a weekend away. there's a park nearby with a children's playground. We are close to the station and bus stops (a few minutes walk). Within 2 minutes of the house is the fantastic Updown art gallery which shows contemporary works by artists such as Howard Hodgkin, Bridget Riley, Peter Blake - exhibitions change regularly (currently April 2013 Howard Hodgkin). The Updown is closed on Sunday and Monday. The nearest supermarket is a Waitrose, and Ramsgate's main library is also nearby.

Ramsgate has a maritime museum, with lots about the Goodwin Sands and the Dunkirk Evacuation - nearby in Margate the Turner Centre holds regular exhibitions of internationally known artists (currently Tracy Emin). There are lots of nice cafes and restaurants in Ramsgate - Age & Sons and Eddie Gilbert are mentioned in the Michelin Guide, Bon Apetit ought to be - also a wide range of ethnic restaurants Russian, Persian, Thai etc. etc. Not far from Canterbury, Dover Castle and Richborough Roman Fort... plenty to entertain any one for a weekend without even going to the beach!

Mark made us feel very welcome, he is a great host. The house is amazing and a perfect location - quiet but close to the town centre and the seafront.

A lovely house situated very well for visits to Ramsgate and Thanet in general. The host is a pleasant man who is very well informed about the local area.

Thanks for review. I perhaps ought to have pointed out the shower room upstairs (with additional loo!)- if I said 'bathroom' that was a slip of the tongue. These details were given correctly on the actual profile

Efficent place to stay for the night and great proximity to the train station and harbor. I spent the day walking along the coastal Viking trail from Ramsgate to Margate. It was a great and cost effective weekend escape from London.

Brilliant stay at Kate's place. We had slightly awkward arrival arrangements but Kate was more than accommodating of these and also a pleasure to chat with over breakfast. Room was perfect and as described. Thanks!
