Holiday Rental House
Situated just 5-10 minutes walk from the beach, this charming period detached bungalow with large garden is the perfect location for a traditional British seaside holiday. Score cottage has a unique 'retro-chic' style - the sink unit was once a sewing machine stand, the cabinets were wine boxes, the mantle piece was a bit of boat jetty. Watch Punch and Judy while enjoying an ice cream from the word famous Morellis ice cream parlour then enjoy the quirky shops cafes and restaurants dotted through the beautiful small streets which are almost unchanged since the reign of Queen Victoria.

Dickens certainly though Viking Bay a pretty spot, making several visits between 1837 and 1859” Decreased Mobility: Score Cottage is all on one level with just two small steps to get in the front door if you have problems with mobility this is a great property, but, please contact me so I can describe it in more detail to ensure it is right for you.

About the neighbourhood
Broadstairs has seven beautiful sand-filled beaches. Viking Bay is the town's main beach. Enjoy children's rides in 'Kiddies corner', colourful beach huts and watch the boats bob in the harbour as you walk along the cliff top.
