Manston Court Accommodations consists of 3 characterful, grade 2 listed, self catering holiday properties all within the private grounds of Manston Court.
ANNIES COTTAGE is a one bedroom cottage full of charm and character, with a host of original features, including exposed 3 foot thick flint walls, exposed beams and a large Inglenook fireplace.
The cottage can sleep up to 4 adults with the addition of the new bed settee in the sitting room.
The first floor bedroom is a surprisingly spacious with sloping ceilings, bay windows, a king-sized bed and ample walk in wardrobe.
There is private parking outside the cottage where there is also a rather lovely seating area, where you can sit and enjoy the peace and quiet watching the wild life whilst soaking up the sunshine.
WELL COTTAGE also has one bedroom, but unlike the other cottage is all on one level, which is particularly helpful for guests who have difficulty with stairs. It is more modern in character than Annie's Cottage and has a triple aspect kitchen/dining/living area which over look the secluded front gardens and parking area of Manston Court.
The en suite is off the bedroom, and with the new bed settee this lovely cottage can now sleep up to 4 guests.
As with Annie's Cottage there is private parking right outside the property and also lovely seating area outside where you can enjoy alfresco dining.
Finally THE CHAPEL is a 13th Century former Medival Hall House which we converted in 2009, into a 3 bedroom luxury self catering holiday property. Each bedroom has its own en-suite shower room.
The master bedroom has a king size four poster bed. The two other bedrooms have super king size beds that can be divided and made into two single beds.
There are additional portable beds and we now have a new leather chesterfield sofa bed in the sitting room, so The Chapel is now easily able to accommodate up to 10 guests comfortably.
The most unique part of the property is the 40 foot lounge, which houses a full size American pool table, 4 comfortable sofas, an xbox 360 and Wii, as well as a baby grand piano. It means that not only can up to 10 guests sleep comfortably in the property, but they can also enjoy each others company in the same room with plenty of space for entertaining.
The Chapel also has its own garden as well as outside dining area, and there is also a hard surface play area to the front of the property that is about the size of a tennis court, and has a basket ball net for all of our guests to use.
We look forward to welcoming you to Manston Court Accommodations.

DIRECTIONS FROM THE M25 - A2 - M2.
From the M25 take the the junction for the M2 - A2 towards Ramsgate and Dover. This junction is very close to the Dartford Tunnel. From this point the journey should take approximately 50 minutes.
The M2 after several miles becomes the A2, which then joins on to the A299 heading towards Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Margate.
After driving on the A299 for about 15 - 20 minutes, you will come across three roundabouts.
At the first roundabout take the 3rd exit (right).
At the second roundabout take the 2nd exit (straight across)
At the third roundabout (the Minster roundabout), take the 1st exit (left) on to the B2048 towards Acol.
After you have turned left at this roundabout you will soon come across two final roundabouts. Turn right at both roundabouts. You will now be on the B2190 heading towards Manston.
After about 1 mile you will come to a staggered junction. Opposite you will be able to see the Spitfire and Hurricane Museum. At this junction turn right onto the B2050 Manston Road heading towards Manston.
After about 1/2 mile on your left hand side, you will come to Manston Court Road, take this turning. You will pass two fields on your right hand side, the second field has trees at the front, and there are normally horses in it. Next to that field are converted farm buildings, and just beyond that is a garage block to our property with a drive through the middle. Drive through the garages and we live opposite.
DIRECTIONS FROM DOVER / FOLKESTONE.
From Folkestone head towards Dover on the A20. This should take about 10 to 15 minutes in the car, and once you are on the dual carriage way, it is one straight road.
From Dover (at the large roundabout with the port on your right hand side), turn right taking the A2 up a lovely winding road which gives a great view of the port. At the roundabout at the top of the hill go straight across continuing on the A2.
Take the first exit off the A2 turning right at the roundabout at the top of the hill, on to the A256. Keep following this road for about 20 miles. It should take about 20/25 minutes to get to Cliffs End. You will see the sea on your right hand side, and there will be a wooden Viking ship on display.
Within about 1 mile you will come to two roundabouts. Keep following the A256, so at the first roundabout you will go straight across, and at the second you will turn right.
After about 1/2 mile, there will be one final roundabout with a wooden dragon in the middle. Turn left following the signs for Manston Village and the B2050. As you drive through the village, you will pass a width restriction, and then a church (St Catherine's) on your right, and a public house (The Jolly Farmer) on your left.
Soon after that you will see a field on your right hand side, and at the end of the field will be Manston Court Road. Turn right here.
You will then pass two fields on your right, the second field has trees at the front, and it normally has horses in it. Next to that field are converted barns, and our garages are next to the barn. There will be a driveway through the center of the garages, please drive through and we live opposite.
BUSES AND TRAINS.
The nearest train station is Ramsgate (3 miles approximately), although Margate and Broadstairs train stations are only just a little further (4 miles).
There is a bus route about 1/2 mile away outside St Catherine's Church in the village, and a local bus taking you to Westwood Cross and then into the local villages has just started in Manston Court Road. It only travels once each way at 10am and 2pm each day from Monday to Friday. It can be stopped anywhere in Manston Court Road.
All accommodations are let from Saturday to Saturday during peak season, arrival time in the smaller cottages 2pm and 3pm in The Chapel, and departure time between 10 and 11am. The cost of accommodation includes utilities, bedding, towels and tea towels.
We are able to accept cheques or credit transfers only but sadly not credit cards at present. A deposit of 20% is required to secure the booking and the final payment must be made 6 weeks prior to arrival.
