About The Chapel

The Chapel sleeps up to 13 guests comfortably in a beautifully spacious grade II listed building of historical importance. It's now used as a comfortable 3 bedroom holiday property, which has consistently been awarded a 4 Star Gold rating by Visit Britain. When rented with the two adjoining one bedroom cottage, it can sleep up to 22 guests (one being a child - 2'6" portable bed).

Situated on the edge of Manston Village, The Chapel is in the heart of the Isle of Thanet on the Kent coastline and conveniently located just four miles from Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Margate.

This popular part of the Kent coast is much loved for its beautiful sandy beaches (some of which have Blue Flag status) and pretty villages. The area has lots of attractions with something to suit all ages including historic castles at Deal, Dover and Walmer; nature reserves at Ramsgate and Sandwich; museums; Howletts Zoo outside Canterbury and good old traditional seaside fun at Broadstairs and Margate, along with a vibrant art scene with the new Turner Gallery.

The local area offers plenty of golf courses both in Manston and Broadstairs, along with the Royal St Georges in Sandwich (just twenty minutes away), well known for hosting the Open Championships. The area also has much to offer cyclists with the Viking Trail easily accessible and walkers with its coastal paths.

The towns of Folkestone and Dover are just a thirty to forty five minute drive, where you can take a ferry or high speed train to France for a day trip. The historic City of Canterbury is also within easy reach and has much to offer with its shops, restaurants and cathedral. For those wanting to stay locally, Westwood Cross Shopping Centre is just two miles away and provides a large choice of shops, restaurants and a multi screen cinema.

Whether you are looking for a romantic, cultural, energetic or relaxing holiday, this delightful part of Kent is sure to please.

Location (Kent)

Formerly a hall house, where locals would have carried out business, today The Chapel sleeps two to thirteen guests and has been given a Gold 4 Star rating by Visit Britain.

Accommodation is laid out over three floors and comprises:

  • Spacious downstairs sitting room with full size pool table, large television (with Freeview), a baby grand piano and several comfy sofas, one being a leather Chesterfield sofa bed. For the younger ones (or adults!) a Wii and xbox 360 have also been provided.
  • A beautiful walnut staircase leads you up to the first floor where there is a fully equipped open plan kitchen/ diner which is perfect for entertaining. The dining table seats up to twelve guests and with the breakfast bar it can seat up to 15 guests. The layout of the kitchen makes this very family/group friendly where the cook isn't left out of the fun. 
  • Utility room conveniently placed next to the kitchen has a washing machine and tumble dryer, additional fridge and freezer and an additional toilet, and you can't have too many of those!
  • The first floor bedroom has a high ceiling, chandelier and king-size four poster bed (as well as leather Chesterfield sofa bed). Full size patio windows overlook the garden and private front courtyard. Rather large doors lead into the fully equipped en-suite.
  • On the second floor there are a two further large bedrooms with characterful beams, flint walls and high ceilings. Both bedrooms have very comfortable six foot zip and link beds that are made up as one large bed, or can be divided into two single beds. Each bedroom has an en-suite and has a Freeview television and DVD player.  There are also 3 portable beds that can be place in the top bedrooms for those extra guests.

Outside: The Chapel has its own private garden with a covered built in seating area which is perfect for relaxing or alfresco dining.  The recently added coloured lighting which surrounds the seating area and part of the garden really adds that special something.

Additional information: Prices include electricity, heating, hot water, towels (please bring your own beach towels) and linen. Short breaks out of season are available on request. The cottages are family friendly with a high chair and travel cot for our younger guests. 

Group Bookings:  Groups of up to 22 guests can be accommodated when all three cottages are rented together.  Please enquire with the owner for Group Booking prices.
