Never been to Ramsgate? It really is a fabulous quintessentially English seaside town, there is nothing like it in the rest of the world! Our self catering cottages in Ramsgate are close to the sea, providing great access to miles of sandy beach walks and fresh air. There are many seaside attractions, including fishing and water sports, to be enjoyed whilst staying in Ramsgate cottages.
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.
Steeped in history, Ramsgate is famous for the World War II tunnels which can be explored along with Ramsgate Maritime Museum situated on the quayside at Ramsgate Harbour. Other museums in the area include the Spitfire and Hurricane Museum at Manston, the Dickens House Museum in Broadstairs and the Powell-Cotton Museum in Birchington – quite fascinating! Self catering cottages are perfect if you love to eat out, Ramsgate Marina has some really good restaurants and bars, lovely cafes for a coffee stop too!

Self catering cottages in Ramsgate are also close to many local museums so you can take advantage of the lovely cafes locally.

The main bathing beach lies to the north of the harbour, this is quite safe for swimming as long as you stay clear of the harbour wall. The sands are fun for children and good for sun-worshippers. There are miles of lovely beaches to visit on the Kent coast.
