Perfect for visiting Ramsgate and Broadstairs. Dogs loved the park and beach, plenty to do in area.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
We rented this property for a family break for four adults and two children. We just about fitted but I was aware of that when we booked. Maya was helpful throughout the booking process and Kylie provided us with a warm welcome.
The gate House is a beautiful period property located just inside the King George V! Memorial Park in Ramsgate. It was once the gate house of the now long gone home of Moses Montefiore who has a plaque on the property itself.
The house was charming full of period features that enhanced the stay. There were excellent facilities (washing machine, dishwasher, oven) in the kitchen, a smart TV and wi-fi in the living room and a small courtyard garden to relax in outside - although being located in the park that latter was not needed!
The children enjoyed the park's play area just a short walk (or run!) away. Whilst there are two toilets there was only one shower (no bath) which meant getting out in the morning took longer than usual but we were on holiday so who cares.
The property is conveniently located. The beautiful Italianate Glasshouse And Tea Garden is practically next door whilst is less than a 10 minute stroll through the gardens to the beach at Dumpton Cove. Both the centre of Ramsgate and Broadstairs are easily walkable with the latter being slightly longer. As you week into Ramsgate you will pass the War Tunnels which are a must visit and pre-booking is advised.
You may have to stock up on supplies as the nearest shops are 15-20 minutes walk away. Dumpton Park train station is nearby should you want to head further to the likes of Margate or Canterbury.
The only downside was bringing our own bed linen as advised when booking as we were coming by train. If you sleep with the windows open early dog walkers and park users may wake you but to be honest it's a small price to pay for staying in a unique property.
We are regular visitors to the Thanet coast and this was our first time staying in Ramsgate. It will not be our last.
Lovely historic house in a park. The beach is 5 mins walk through the park. We had a great time. Thanks!
Great location with the property over looking the park and just a short walk to a dog friendly beach. Lovely and relaxing time spent there, totally enjoyable week. Looking forward to returning later this year.
Thank you Maya and Kiley
We have just been to the Gate House for another visit
As usual, we had a great time in this perfect location
The weather was perfect
Actually, we have never had bad weather on our many visits
As for the house- what can I say?
For us it is a home from home
Cosy, welcoming, relaxing
It matters to me that the decor etc is right up my street- makes me comfortable!
We will, of course, be back to enjoy the Gate House, Dumpton beach and cafe, Broadstair's bandstand and teacakes, the gorgeous park outside the front door and all our Kent dog loving pals!
Thanks Maya- it's a gem
We (my parents, husband, kids, dog and I) holidayed at the gatehouse. It was just wonderful. The house is beautiful, comfy, well stocked with kitchen and play stuff. It's in such a gorgeous park, a short wander to the beach and so comfy, clean and bright. Can't wait to come back!
We had a lovely time in The Gate House, which was located in the park and a short walk away from the beautiful white clifs. We walked a few times with our dog through the park down to the beach and then over the beach to Broadstairs.
The house is a realy nice place to stay, with good beds (only the third bedroom good do with a real bed as others already wrote in their review). The only minor thing for me was the kitchen which can do with some tlc. We liked Walmer Castle and Deal, but also Canteburry with its cathedral was worth to visit. For our teen the Ashford Designer Outlet was a hit. We had a lovely week with super sunny weather☀️
