Last 2 Weeks of Our January Sale!

Last 2 Weeks of Our January Sale!

To celebrate achieving a Silver Award in our annual Visit Britain inspection last December, we announced a 10% discount for January 2011 so I thought I would post a reminder that there is just over 2 weeks left to take advantage of our great deal.

A two night stay plus Charlie's full English Breakfast will cost just £126 for the rest of January (based on 2 people sharing a twin or double room).

See my previous Silver Award blog for more details.

Ok, so it's still cold but now is a great time to get those hiking boots out or dust down the bike and get out in the open air!

The Isle of Thanet is an amazing part of our country with stunning chalk cliffs, sandy beaches, bustling seaside towns and picturesque villages and we are lucky enough to have a 27 mile designated trail around the area for cyclists and walkers to take advantage of.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Had a nice piece written about our Silver Award in the Isle of Thanet Gazette today (page 5 for all locals) saying how delighted we are to receive our accolade. 

This lovely photo was taken by my beautiful friend Elaine when she came down recently.  It was taken walking towards Ramsgate Sands along from Dumpton Gap -  a great spot for a good photo.

Ramsgate's fantastic outdoor art gallery

Ramsgate's fantastic outdoor art gallery

This fantastic art display down at Ramsgate's Sands from our local talented artists is really flourishing and I think there are more than 30 pieces of art on show now.  Mike Samson, one of the artists whose work is displayed has sent me a Youtube posting proudly unveilling the latest additions to the gallery, the only problem is he chose to film it the same day as the Quad bike championships so he is having to shout over the sound of roaring engines on the sands opposite.  It's eight minutes of hilarious footage with Mike doing his best to compete with International moto

Ramsgate Harbour will certainly be noisy this weekend with International quad and solo bike racing down on Ramsgate Sands. 

The action starts at 1000hrs on saturday and sunday and will include international quad and solo stars competing to become the first champions of Ramsgate Beach Cross.

The event is free for spectators and there is also a funfair being erected this afternoon with some scary looking rides.  I must be getting old. .
