I can't believe how quickly the year has gone (I know, sign of getting old!) and November is already here. I'm a bit weird in that I quite like the winter, the late sunrises and early sunsets with the low light means lots of great opportunities to photograph Ramsgate and the surrounding areas in all it's glory.

2015 is well underway and I can’t believe it is Valentine’s Day tomorrow! Ramsgate offers so much for those of you who fancy a romantic break away, from our lovely array of independent cafes and bars overlooking our unique Royal Harbour to our fantastic local shops dotted around our town. The newest addition is called Petticoat Lane Emporium (see pic) which opens its doors on 14th February with an injection of passion for the small trader, it will house an eclectic collection of retro and
The last sunset of 2014 reflected a wonderful year here at Glendevon Guest House and Ramsgate. We have been fortunate to have a year packed with guests, many of whom we have met several times before and some new faces too that we hope to see again in 2015.
We are so lucky here in our little corner of England as we have some of the mildest weather in the UK which included basking in the warmest Halloween since records began. We can also take advantage of some great photo opportunities in the late afternoon as the sun sets and the sky turns multicoloured! Even in the colder months, we have many guests who come to enjoy the coastal walks and get their fix of sea air.
