Nestled in the heart of Margate, Smuggler’s Cottage makes a great getaway for couples and families to enjoy a seaside holiday.

Smugglers Cottage is a quaint, terraced cottage in an ideal location in the heart of Margate, a great getaway for couples and families to enjoy a seaside holiday. Just minutes to the sea and a short stroll into the Old Town, this property offers good seaside breaks. Following an award-winning architect designed refurbishment in 2016 of this Grade II listed cottage, the interiors have been decorated and furnished in a unique style that is full of character and charm. The courtyard garden is the perfect area to enjoy an evening glass of wine as you plan what to do the following day. Be sure to bring your bikes, as Kent boasts some of the best cycling and walking routes in the UK, and the cottage’s convenient outhouse is suitable for bike storage after your ride. Comfortably sleeping 4 people, guests will enjoy the open-plan kitchen’s fresh contemporary feel.

Local attractions include the theme park Dreamland Margate, with its iconic scenic railway and vintage amusements. Visit the Turner Contemporary Gallery, which was visited by the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, features a wide selection of world class art exhibitions. Further afield, you will find the award-winning coast of Viking Bay in Broadstairs, famous for its folk week in the summer.

Why not discover Canterbury in style aboard one of the city’s boat tours, or explore the history behind its world-famous cathedral? There are a number of boutique shops that are well worth a visit, or you can simply wander along the city streets to take in Canterbury’s remarkable culture. Day trips to France are easily accessible from Margate, take a short drive to Dover and enjoy a ferry trip to Calais, or there’s the Eurostar from Ashford. Beach 500 yards.

    My daughter who trained in interior architecture and design loved the confident use of old and modern in this lovingly restored old cottage . It felt so comfortable living here for 5 days. It is a great location in the old town and so convieant for wandering around the great second hand shops, coffe shops, independent pubs and restaurants. The Turner Art Gallery was an inspiration and minutes from this surprising house. Lots of interesting books re art, design and architecture to look through while relaxing in the light filled kitchen .Our dog loved this home for a week and hopes we will visit again!!

    This review is a little late but I was reminded to do it after another holiday with the company. Smugglers is a very unusual property with quirky decor . On arrival I was a little unsure but soon warmed to the plaster walls in the lounge and ended up loving its whole ambience and history. There were only 2 of us so the top floor bathroom was no problem and the provided bathrooms were lovely to use to go up there. the little area behind the cottage provided an excellent place to have a glass of wine before heading out to eat . We had never been to Margate before but wanted to go to the Turner Gallery. So glad we tried Margate it has the most stunning sunsets which we saw every evening of our holiday. We ate at some really great restaurants in the old town area where the cottage is located.

    Fantastic place, tastefully renovated, cosy and comfortable. I would go back to Margate just to stay here again! A full size mirror is all that’s missing.

    We had a lovely stay at Smugglers Cottage. Great location in the Old Town, very close to the sea and some great places to eat and drink nearby. Would definitely recommend this place to others. Sorry we didn’t write anything in the visitors book! Only realised we’d forgotten when driving home but many thanks it’s a beautiful home.
