A hop from the northern shores of France is the historic seaside town of Ramsgate. Deemed the only “Royal Harbor” in all of England, Ramsgate has a diverse and dynamic history that has left striking Georgian architecture and captivating stories of Romans and Saints, shipwrecks and more behind. Curious to learn a fun fact about Ramsgate? The town has its own Meridian Line, which means it’s more than five minutes ahead of Greenwich Mean Time! If you’re looking for a peaceful holiday, look no further than our guide to the best Airbnb vacation rentals in town.
Looking to have a feel of the writer’s life in Ramsgate? Look no further than host Abigail’s home. A gorgeous two bedroom, one bathroom home with a dreamy, English interior, Abigail’s home can comfortably sleep up to four guests. Pets are allowed in the home and it’s suitable for families considering the large space. Some of the house features include a kitchen, an indoor fireplace, and laptop friendly workspaces. There is also a washing machine for your convenience, and the washroom will be stocked with towels, soap, and a hairdryer. The house is located in a quiet area of town not far from some of Abigail’s favorite restaurants: Vinylhead and Harbour Brasserie.

Put simply, this home is breathtaking. Located right on the water, waves will be crashing on your front porch (figuratively speaking). The house has three bedrooms and one and a half baths, suitable for up to 12 people - if you can believe it. Built along the cliffside, the home overlooks the glowing sea and is minutes from the famed Ramsgate harbor. In-home amenities include a full kitchen, wifi, a clothing iron, washing machine, and bathroom toiletries such as shampoo. In the summer, you can enjoy a variety of local activities like boating and kite surfing, and in the winter, a walk to the neighboring town of Broadstairs.

Host Clementine rents out a nice, new space in her home. Though it is a basement, it’s probably not what you would think. The space is bright with windows and tastefully decorated with simple furnishings. As the building was newly renovated, the bathroom now includes a walk-in shower, an open kitchen, and access to a lovely outdoor patio which has a log burner and barbecue. Pets are allowed in the unrecognizable basement area, and there is speedy wifi available. Some of the nearby attractions include the local library (another unexpected recommendation, isn’t it?), where you can step in and listen to live bands on most nights, and at the end of Clementine’s street, a great view of the harbor.
