Verified reviewexcellent

Whaleback Cottage is a beautiful stone cottage in the most perfect location in Ramsgate. It's stone walls and wooden floors give you a sense of its history yet it is very clean and comfortable. The views from the bedrooms and patio is incredible and the sound of the sea all around you cannot be beaten. There are blue flag beaches as well as lovely walks and tidal pools on its doorstep. The pool and garden are well secured for dogs and children. Love it, cannot wait to return!
