  • Sleeps: 5
  • Bedrooms: 2

Perfect for lovers of the Great British seaside, The Courtyard Suite Margate isn’t just located directly opposite the expansive Main Sands beach, but the bustling Old Town is in easy strolling distance.

It’s just that once you’ve checked in to this insanely creative coastal retreat, you might be tempted not to go out at all!

Designed by the talented team at Studio Margate, every room will see you whipping out your phone to update your social-media feeds, pronto. A captivating retro colour palette ranges from soft ice-cream hues to vivid seaside blues and greens, while beach-themed accessories add a playful sense of fun.

Sleeping up to five guests, the retro-style living space features a pull-out sofa bed for a single guest, with a TV to keep you all entertained on sociable evenings in (you’ll have great Wi-Fi, too).

There’s a charming kitchenette with everything you need to whip up hearty meals and snacks – including that all-important holiday essential: a microwave! – and a dreamy private courtyard to lounge in.

The two themed double bedrooms, meanwhile, are both genuine talking-points, complete with custom-crafted beds and unique local artwork. All you’ve got to do is decide which is your favourite!

The Coral Room is an opulent vintage Hollywood-inspired extravaganza with a round, cushion-festooned bed and gorgeous Art Deco-style furnishings – ideal for wannabe movie-stars.

Prefer something a little more… aquatic? The wonderfully kitsch Mermaid Room boasts a plush carpet-rug and a sumptuous shell bed to make you feel like Ariel or Neptune, rising gloriously out of the spray.

You’ll also have an indulgent shower room to freshen up in, complete with gleaming tiles and fluffy towels, to help you prepare for the coming day’s adventures!

Things to note

You will have to climb two very steep flights of stairs to reach the apartment, so regrettably it is not suitable for guests with mobility issues. Check in from 3pm – 10pm, check out by 11am. Pets are not permitted. Strictly no smoking, either in the apartment or out on the courtyard.
