The detail

A short stroll from the sea, tucked down a quiet alleyway in the centre of trendy Margate, this pretty two bedroom cottage is perfectly located for guests to take full advantage of all this lovely seaside town has to offer. Whether you spend your time making sandcastles and eating ice-creams, taking in the town's cultural attractions or exploring the mysterious Shell Grotto, guests will love returning to this cute, historic property at the end of the day.

The 400 year old flint and brick cottage has a welcoming red door and visitors will instantly feel at home as they step into the warm entrance area. This space has William Morris Liberty print walls, a theme which is continued throughout the cottage with its lampshades, framed prints and soft furnishings. Hang coats and kick off boots before making a tea in the well-equipped kitchen and heading into the charming lounge to recuperate from the journey. Sink into the comfy sofa, which can also be transformed into an extra bed, or sit back in one of the two stylish velvet chairs and make plans for the rest of the day. A fashionable mid-century dresser is filled with books and games for cosy nights in and there is a large flat screen television for binge watching the latest must-sees.

Wooden boards cover the floor, as they do throughout the ground floor, and original timber runs across the ceiling. The property is also full of vintage furniture and quirky artworks depicting the local area.

Guests also have their own private lawned garden, which is an ideal spot for a morning coffee in the summer. This space is walled, meaning kids can play safely, and the outdoor seating makes it a nice place to chill with a drink in the evening.

Back inside and a grand carpeted stairway leads off the kitchen taking guests upstairs to the two comfortable bedrooms. The calming master bedroom has a large, comfy double bed with an upholstered headboard and crisp linens, and a couple of bedside tables create a handy spot for books and morning coffees. Individual pendant lamps give a chilled atmosphere and are especially useful for late-night readers. The second bedroom has twin vintage wooden beds with colourful bedspreads and more of the Liberty print. Both rooms are fully carpeted for a luxurious feel each morning.

The bedrooms share a modern family bathroom and guests are provided with fluffy white towels and luxurious toiletries. Fill the tubs, pour in the bubbles and ponder where to head for dinner.

The former cinema, the Old Kent Market, has been transformed into a food hall with something for all appetites and is a great option for dinners out. It is also home to one of Britain's smallest pubs, The Little Prince. Drinkers will also love Fez, a quirky pub with a great range of gins, while traditionalists can get cosy by the fire at The Lifeboat Ale and Cider House.
