The Benvenue comprises three spacious, well-appointed apartments (refs W43984, W43985 and W43986), situated in a prime position on Sandgate Esplanade. All apartments have balconies leading off the living room and face directly over the seashore just a few yards away, giving uninterrupted views across the English Channel to the cliffs of France, and views to the Dungeness Peninsula, situated at the far end of a sweeping curve of coastline as it disappears into the hazy distance. The accommodation comprises a comfortable living room, a large kitchen, relaxing and cosy bedrooms with en-suite facilities in most rooms.
Sandgate is a short walk away, or two minutes’ drive. The high street is noted for its eclectic mix of antique and bric-a-brac shops, pubs, a real ale bar, restaurants, takeaways and a highly rated fish and chip shop.
The nearby towns of Folkestone and Hythe are within easy reach by car or the regular buses. Folkestone has a picturesque working harbour, with numerous fishing boats at anchor. Fresh seafood is readily available from a selection of family-run stalls adjacent to the quayside. Hythe is much quieter, the charming old high street has many interesting shops, as well as places of refreshment. The Royal Military Canal, built as a means of supplying British soldiers during Napoleonic times, now makes its way quietly through the town. Its tree-lined banks make a restful place to sit and take in the pleasant, relaxing view.
Slightly more distant is the busy port of Dover, noted for the Norman castle that dominates the skyline. It also offers day trips to France with regular ferry crossing to Calais. The Battle of Britain Memorial is situated right next to main road from Folkestone to Dover, the haunting presence of a Spitfire and Hurricane a poignant reminder of days gone by.
The famous city of Canterbury is a must with its well-preserved city walls and cathedral.
The nearby Sunny Sands beach is a great place for children to play when the tide is out. The harbour boasts one of the finest restaurants in the area. Views from the glass-fronted dining area and terrace give a wonderful view day or night over the inner harbour. Another point of interest is the old high street, a steep, narrow road that connects the upper part of Folkestone to the harbour area.
If it’s a comfortable base from which to visit or explore, or just somewhere to relax in and re-charge away from it all, The Benvenue apartments make an ideal choice for your seaside holiday. Shop 300 yards, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
