The Old Barrel Store, margate - in the press
Roll up… Roll up… Read all about it!
If it’s a self-catering option you’re after, just a few miles north of Ramsgate in the neighbouring seaside town of Margate is one of Kent’s finest holiday homes. Nestled in a quiet courtyard in the heart of Margate’s Old Town, close to vintage shops, cafes and galleries, and a stone’s throw from the seafront, the two-bedroom Old Barrel Store is simply a delight. From its beams scavenged from old ship to its myriad of locally sourced antique fixtures and fittings, the home positively oozes charm, while useful amenities including a travelcot and highchair, beach equipment, and books and DVDs, ensure guests have everything they need for a relaxing stay. There’s a grassed area, a BBQ and outdoor furniture to while away those balmy summer evenings, plus off-road parking for maximum convenience.
We discovered the delightful town of Margate last year and immediately fell in love with the up and coming, quirky seaside resort.
When I was offered the opportunity to have an overnight stay at the Old Barrel Store in the heart of Margate town I was over the moon.
We had a short and easy drive into Margate with just the youngest two and easily found the property nestled just off one of the quaint streets that house some wonderful shops selling anything from vintage homeware and clothes to yummy retro sweets….
