Two rooms, one lovely large light and airy room with ensuite and one smaller room are available in this quiet and comfortable home. Please note: this is not a separate annex or an apartment with a communal area but consists of 2 bedrooms on the second floor of my private house where I live and work.
I have decided to offer a second room this year in my quiet and comfortable Edwardian home. The large double bedroom is fully furnished with double bed, wardrobe, table and chair, chest of drawers and futon sofa-bed and has an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has its own wash basin and can access the bathroom from the hall.
Ideally placed for visiting tourist spots in East Kent and the Isle of Thanet as well as being 1 hour 30mins from London by train your stay can be viewed as a cheap and comfortable alternative to expensive London and other city Hotels.
If you fancy hopping over to Europe there is the EuroTrain to Paris and other destinations - via the Dover to Calais tunnel or of course the ferry from Dover.
Margate itself is a small seaside town that boasts a exciting new Art Gallery, The Turner Contemporary, named after the famous artist who spent much of his time living and painting here. He was attracted in particular to the beautiful sunsets we have in the area.
A number of new art clubs and cafe's have recently sprung up on the Northdown Road in Cliftonville and there are a variety of good quality restaurants in and around Margate as well as sister towns of Broadstairs and Ramsgate. There are also lots of small boutique shops selling vintage clothes, art, antiques and other wares. Other attractions include the Shell Grotto, The Theatre Royal Margate, The Winter Gardens and The Tom Thumb Theatre, as well as many beautiful sandy beaches and very recently Dreamland re-0pened, where retro meets modern a new kind of amusement park designed for all ages, well worth a visit.
For more information on the area visit the 'Visit Thanet' Website.

I am semi retired and a practicing artist. Moved to this area in May 2011 and love being by the sea. I have travelled quite a bit and lived overseas for 16 years in places such as LIbya, Indonesia, Malaysia and the USA. Have travelled to Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, India and many parts of Europe.
I like mainly non fiction books particularly those connected to art, science, psychology and philosophy. Love animals and have recently acquired a lovely non-shedding cockerpoo, who is a delight.
I am a reasonably good cook and like good ole' home cooking as well as spicy food.
I get on with most people so I am sure you will fit in nicely here.
