Situated on the edge of the village of Manston, and within 4 miles of the coastal villages of Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Margate, the properties are perfectly located for not only a relaxing or energetic beach holiday, but also being close to the cities of Canterbury, Dover and Folkestone, you can take your pick of sight-seeing, shopping or just finding new places to explore and eat, you will be spoilt for choice.
The Chapel is the largest of our 3 self-catering holiday properties. It can accommodate up to 10 guest in the 3 sizeable bedrooms, with the addition of two portable beds and a leather chesterfield bed settee. The Chapel is independenly quality assessed every year and each time attains a Gold 4 Star rating from Visit England.
On the ground floor of The Chapel the 40 foot lounge houses a full size American pool table, a large television with free view, 4 comfortable sofas’ and a baby grand piano. There is also a Wii, an Xbox 360 and several board games for guests to use.
A beautiful walnut staircase leads up to a spacious open plan kitchen/dining room, which was designed for families and entertaining. The 6-foot oak dining table seats up to 12 guests, and with a very sociable breakfast bar the cook doesn’t get left out of the fun, making hosting any occasion a pleasure. Full length windows overlooking the secluded gardens and entrance, a chandelier and subdued lighting under the units create a perfect ambiance for a relaxing evening.
The utility room off of the kitchen has an additional fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer, and of course another toilet (you can’t have too many of those!)
The master bedroom is on the first floor. It has a high ceiling, chandelier, a king size four poster bed and sumptuous burgundy carpet. Full sized patio windows overlook the secluded front courtyard and garden, and reclaimed 8 foot doors lead into a characterful well equipped en suite. The room oozes romance and luxury.
However, occasionally you do have to bring the family who won’t be disappointed with the two further double bedrooms on the second floor. Both have high ceilings, exposed beams, flint walls and windows with far reaching views.
All bedrooms are fully equipped and have their own en suite. They also each have a television with free view and inbuilt DVD player, and also a hair dryer. And both top floor bedrooms also have a very comfortable 6-foot zip link bed with a mattress topper so you should sleep like a baby! Alternatively, they can be divided into two single 3 foot beds for when friends or children are sharing.
To the rear of The Chapel is a private secluded garden, containing a specially created dining alcove in flint, stone and brick. In the summer it catches the afternoon sun and is perfect for enjoying a relaxing meal or barbecue, or just chilling.
And for the younger visitors who need to let off a little steam, there is a private hard surface play area with a basketball net a short distance from the front of The Chapel. This area is for the exclusive use of all guests at Manston Court.
Finally, in the sitting room by the elegant staircase there is a servant’s bell. However, the one thing missing in this amazing property is the servant. She says that she is definitely on strike for the foreseeable future, so push the bell at your own risk!
Check in time for The Chapel is 3pm, and departure is no later than 11am. However, sometimes out of season it is possible to adjust the arrival and departure time, so please feel free to ask. Thank-you.
