Property Details

Annies Cottage is located on the edge of the village of Manston in Kent, and is only a short drive from the seaside towns of Ramsgate, Margate and Broadstairs. This 18th Century, one bedroom, self catering cottage was originally the accommodation of the servant at Manston Court whose name was Annie. The exposed flint walls add to the historic feel of this lovely cottage, which overlooks the large secluded garden area to the front of Manston Court. The specially created seating area outside allows you to enjoy alfresco dining, or to just relax, taking in the peaceful ambiance of the property whilst soaking up the sunshine.

In the sitting room there is a large inglenook fireplace which incorporates an original bakers oven. The beamed ceiling and pretty windows create a cosy feel in this lovely room, and the three foot thick walls help the cottage stay lovely and cool on hot summer days, and comfortably warm on cold winter ones.

The kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob and circulating fan oven and grill, a microwave oven, toaster, fridge with ice box, and a washing machine/tumble dryer making it easy to stay as long as you like.

The downstairs bathroom has a lovely new bath with a shower over the top which has 2 remote controls, so you can programme your shower even before you get in. However, if you prefer to have a bath, there is complimentary bubble bath, and a family of ducks to play with! Large mirrors run the length of two walls making it a light a bright bathroom.

The first floor bedroom is a charming and romantic room, with sloping ceilings and bay windows. The very comfortable king-size bed with the super king size duvet, and spacious walk in wardrobe add a feel of luxury. There is also an additional portable bed and cot available for families to use.

There is also guaranteed parking outside the cottage in the private courtyard, or in the cool shade of the lovely tall trees opposite.

Situated in a quiet rural location just outside the village of Manston, Manston Court is part of a cluster of buildings mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

Bedding, towels and tea towels are included in the price, but guests are requested to provide their own beach towels. An iron, ironing board, and hair dryer are also provided, and a high chair is available upon request.

Arrival time is from 2pm onwards, and departure time is between 10 and 11 am. Sadly we aren't able to accept short breaks during the summer season, or in the school holidays, however out of season where possible, we are happy to accept short breaks.

For any enquiries or booking please phone (+44) 01843 823371 or email us at

We also have another one bedroom cottage called Well Cottage, and a rather large 3 bedroom property called The Chapel all within the grounds of Manston Court. Some guests hire all 3 properties and bring the family. In total all three properties can accommodate up to 18 guests, so why not consider having a family holiday or celebration to remember.

We look forward to welcoming you, and hope you enjoy your stay.
