Overview

Exclusive Recommended Quirky Pets Welcome Walk to Beach Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite Romantic

Welcome to the unique and exceptional The Breakers Beach House on the charming Kent Coast. Comfortably sitting on one of the most sought-after private roads in Sandgate, with direct beach access and a view of France on a sunny day! This astonishing treasure is the ideal seaside getaway offering a fun, friendly atmosphere with heaps of style. It is only five minutes away from the local gastropubs and is within an easy reach of Sandgate Village and Folkestone Harbour.

The Breakers is a beautiful home to explore all the joys of Kent. The engaging interiors feature an imaginative and thoughtful design, with an astonishing mural by Kent artist Oliver Trowell, ceiling lighting depicting a shooting star and beautiful sculptures and artwork throughout. The house is bright and light, making it ideal for summer stays. Whilst also offering homely furnishings and a toasty wood burner for winter months.

On entering the beach house, you are greeted by an enchanting display of maritime objects and paintings, reflecting the history of the local area and owners. This leads to the stylish living room with a dining table for four, kitchen, comfortable seating, and large TV. The large ground floor windows illuminate the space allowing for a stunning uninterrupted panoramic sea view. Not to mention, the room also plays host to an extraordinary mural, Greek columns, and sculptures. There is a double bedroom with a chic bathroom boasting a Jacuzzi bathtub. The laundry room is also located on the ground floor. This is a flexible space that works well as a self-contained apartment if required.

The first floor has an appealing layout with a large master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and private balcony, which is the perfect spot to take full advantage of the picturesque views. There is a modern, well-equipped kitchen, cosy seating area with wood burner along with two tables for entertaining. Creating ample space for groups or celebratory occasion. The living room balcony is the real showstopper. It benefits from superb far-reaching, elevated views over the sea, with additional seating and a BBQ.

The second floor is accessible via a spiral staircase and consists of one bedroom with a zip and link bed that can be set up as a double or twin bedroom. There is also an additional trundle bed available. For a touch of luxury, the ensuite bathroom offers a large roll-top bathtub.

Outside you will feel totally spoilt, the beach house has a wonderful terrace and pergola, which is perfectly positioned directly overlooking the sea—making it the ideal spot to watch the sunrise, enjoy a sundowner or share a delicious BBQ with friends.

The beach itself is a pebbly, quiet beach with long views over the channel, leading into the village of Sandgate. Shopaholics will love exploring the high street filled with shops selling antiques and collectables, along with a variety of pubs, restaurants, and cafes. A short walk along the coast path will bring you to the popular town of Folkestone. Stroll the cobbled street of Folkerstone’s Creative quarter, enjoy some outstanding food at the harbour or visit the popular Lower Leas Costal Park. The town also plays host to the unmissable Folkestone Triennial showcasing the best that the arts have to offer!

The Breakers is especially great for families. Together you can enjoy exploring local attractions and historical sites like Dover Castle, South Foreland Lighthouse and Battle of Britain Museum. And if that was not enough, there are the charming nearby villages and the seaside town of Rye, Camber, Dungeness, St Margaret’s Bay, Deal, Sandwich Broadstairs and Whitstable to discover - all offering a selection of shops, galleries, a cinema and restaurants. The Breakers is the perfect seaside escape offering an exceptional stay to remember.

Reviews

  • Fabulous house

    Posted by Olivia on 11/11/2021

    Fabulous house right on the beach, with personality and kept to impeccable standards. What a find and such helpful owners advising us on where to go. A brilliant experience which I would highly recommend for a luxurious break! Just wonderful - thank you.

  • Highly recommend a stay

    Posted by Clare B. on 24/08/2021

    Our stay at The Breakers exceeded all expectations. The location of the house, literally on the beach, is unbeatable. It is within walking distance of local shops, cafes and pubs. Taking our bicycles was an excellent decision as directly outside the house is a national cycle route along the seafront and then continues alongside the Royal Military Canal. The house itself was exceptionally well equipped and the owners had thought of everything you would need. The decor was perfect for a holiday stay and very clean. The owners were very helpful with suggestions of local attractions and restaurant recommendations.
    We would definitely recommend The Breakers as a great destination for your next holiday and look forward to returning there.

  • WOW

    Posted by Karen A. on 23/08/2021

    There’s plenty of WOW factor to be enjoyed at The Breakers. The house is beautiful and if you love uninterrupted views of the sea, as we do, this is the place to be.
    It felt at times like being on a luxury yacht without the sea sickness!
    The delightful owners could not have been more welcoming, supplying us with a cot and high chair for our one year old grandson and a brand new bed and yummy treats for our dog.
    They then visited to show us how everything works in their exceptionally well appointed house and give us a comprehensive guide of things to do and places to eat in Folkstone - just a ten minute drive or half an hour stroll along the beach front- and surrounding area.
    We had a wonderful sense of quiet and privacy at The Breakers as the shingle beach directly outside the house remained relatively underpopulated even on hot, sunny days. There’s a sandy beach only ten minutes walk away so we felt we had the best of both worlds.
    We only used one of the two small kitchens in the house as we wanted to all eat together as a family. It was a bit of a challenge at times cooking for 6 and a toddler in such a tight space, but we couldn’t have wanted for a lovelier setting to enjoy family time together.
    On cooler days there’s a roaring wood burning stove to snuggle up to on the sofa while watching Netflix movies! So it really is a year round holiday house.
    This is definitely a five star stay and we recommend it extremely highly.

  • Wonderful stay

    Posted by Joanne W. on 15/08/2021

    Myself, husband, and two 15 year old young ladies plus our handsome 3year old English bulldog Bert have just returned from a wonderful stay at The Breakers Sandgate.
    I would love to keep this amazing property a secret as I am desperate to return soon! Cannot express how considerate and amazing the owners are. They recommended The Radnor Arms and we will also now! Food and staff amazing!
    So much care and love has been put into this truly unique beautiful property. Can not fault anything - girls were never bored and Bert was a massive hit with everyone.
    Thank you for making our stay a magical experience and we can’t wait to return.
