There are many seaside attractions, including fishing and water sports, to be enjoyed whilst staying in Ramsgate cottages.

Ramsgate - boaties' heaven!

Ramsgate’s harbour is a scene of activity, known as a Royal harbour, it was made so by the landing here of King George IV in 1822 and it is this visit that gave the town the popularity it has enjoyed ever since. There is also a picturesque marina, always a lively place where it is a pleasure to wander around just to look at tall mast yachts and bright sailing boats. The fact that the town is known first as a ferry port takes nothing away from the pleasant ambience felt in its streets, gardens and brightly lit promenade.
