Charlie and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, prosperous New Year.  It’s been another great year for us and Ramsgate and we have met lots of wonderful new guests and welcomed back many returning guests too.   We have also seen quite a few new businesses open up even in the last few months including the gorgeous little boutique in the old police station in Charlotte Court called Saltworks which sells beautiful clothes and accessories and a new restaurant in Effingham Street called Flavours by Kumar which is already gaining great accolades on Tri

Call me strange but I love this time of year.  Christmas is just round the corner, the town looks very festive, handmade markets are selling their wares (next market is on 7th Dec at Customs House) PLUS you get to witness the sun rising and setting as the days are so short!  Also, with Small Business Saturday coming up on 7th December now is the perfect time to think about New Year’s Resolutions early and start shopping locally!  We are supporting Small Business Saturday and have just received our promotion pack from American Express who are offeri

I captured these glorious skies down at the harbour yesterday late afternoon around 4pm.  One of the many bonuses of running a B&B is that I can walk the dog late afternoon and just a 6 minute walk away are views like this over our beautiful Royal Harbour.  Another bonus is actually having a dog which would have been unthinkable when we were working 12 hour shifts away from home.

We had our hotel inspection yesterday which was a great success as we successfully retained our Four Star Silver Award! The timing couldn't have been better as we have just had the dining area, front door and various other areas repainted so the house was looking marvellous.

I had a lovely day on Sunday visiting the art galleries that were part of Open Studios for this year’s Summer Squall.  Kate Smith had a great exhibition at her gorgeous Updown Gallery and Mike Samson was displaying art and sculptures from other artists around Thanet at his wonderful York Street Gallery.  I loved the roaming Caravan Gallery which has some thought provoking and hilariou

Took this lovely picture today whilst out enjoying an end of day walk with Rosie dog.

From our house, it takes about 20 minutes to get to Dumpton Gap (pictured) and then another 15 to walk the rest of the way to Broadstairs.  

We usually take the ramp up to the clifftop at Dumpton and walk through the King George VI park back home, round trip taking around 1 hour.  The peacock butterfly photo was taken in the park, captured snuggling down in the Buddleia.

The Rock Doc is back!
