This month Coast has teamed up with England’s Coast and West Bay House to offer a luxury self-catering getaway for nine guests in Kent.

England’s Coast is the clever tool that showcases the whole of England’s spectacular coastline. Holidaymakers can browse 2,000 coastal businesses including accommodation, restaurants, activities and attractions, to research a day trip or longer break, build an itinerary and book directly. Website users can research the very best that the coastline has to offer – from beautiful beaches, top venues for seafood and historic landmarks, to under-the-radar coastal towns, wildlife hotspots, superb cycling trails and coastal walks.

West Bay House, designed in the Queen Anne Revival style, is situated above the golden sands of Blue Flag-accredited West Bay in the charming coastal village of Westgate on the Isle of Thanet. Here you can experience an opulent and relaxing break, with stunning coastal views, amazing sunsets and quaint, independent shops.

The house is located between Birchington and Margate, both an enjoyable promenade stroll, or bike ride away along the Viking Coastal Trail. Visit the latest exhibition at Turner Contemporary, explore Margate’s Old Town, pop to timeless Broadstairs with its links to Charles Dickens and enjoy a famous Morellis ice cream in their 1950s parlour. Alternatively, stroll along the waterfront in Ramsgate and admire the yachts in the UK’s only Royal Harbour from a cosy café – very cosmopolitan.
