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.
