The Bay Tree Broadstairs is currently closed for a major refurbishment and will re-open in December 2017.
We’ve delayed re-opening owing to slower than anticipated progress with our refurbishment.
We’re now managing the remainder of our build (primarily decoration, second-fixes and snagging plus landscaping) ourselves along with a new site manager instead of through our original building contractors.
We would like to thank all of our guests for their patience – we will be open as soon as we can and we’re sure it’ll be worth the wait!
We are still reachable by phone 01843 862502 & email firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiries and future bookings.
Ben has been keen to help get supplies and also supervise daily trips to our local recycling facilities!
Our boundary wall is coming along nicely: after the post visible half-way up our drive, there will be brick footings then wood fence panels.
This is the rear of our car park: the rubble and clutter in the foreground will be cleared.
This is looking up our drive to our bay tree and in front of Room 1, Willow.
We will tarmac our drive and make areas look presentable and safe but will look to complete our external works, including adding flower beds, brick stairs to our rear entrance a small utility area in the spring. As Room 1 is intended to be both accessible (including having it’s own private terrace and step free external entrance) and dog-friendly we will complete this part of our brick-works prior to our opening in December.
This is the inside of Room 1, Willow. It is not easy to show on the blog but we’ve been working hard to ensure most of the snagging – ironing out any little glitches, touching up and finishing, is as near to completion as possible.
Across the passage from room 1, our tilers have been creating the area in our utility room for a butler sink for easy-bucket filling for our staff cleaning Room 1, our rear entrance and toilets (all have Karndean engineered wood flooring) plus our kitchen and utility room, not to mention our sea-view restaurant which has its original wood flooring.
This is an example of one of our oriel windows, here in Room 2, Hazel, which allow for partial sea-views of the North Sea.
Our sea-view lounge with its spectacular views will look amazing once we’ve completed our refurbishment.
When we need a break from our refurbishment we love walking Ben up to the North Foreland lighthouse – which can be seen flashing from The Bay Tree.
