Bay Tree Broadstairs Refurbishment Week 47

The Bay Tree Broadstairs is currently closed for a major refurbishment and will re-open in October 2017.

We are still reachable by phone 01843 862502 & email for enquiries and future bookings.

Ben is inspecting the traditional flint wall we’ve been building.

Brick walls have also been built around our car park – the old walls were needed renewing and we’ve lowered the level of the car park.

Looking from our car park to the garden area immediately behind our building where our large bay tree is situated, we’ve been doing a lot of clearing ready for new patio and flower beds. The square hole is where steps leading to our rear entrance (left-hand window in the picture)from the garden and car park will be. The red fence is a temporary measure and will be removed. The right-hand window is Room 1, Willow, which will have a small private terrace and it’s own step-free entrance and is also both our accessible and dog-friendly room.

Above Room 1 and our rear entrance, the stone work on our balcony is almost complete and ready for the ballustrades.

Once inside from our rear entrance, looking forward to our sea-view lounge, we’ve been working on restoring the original Minton flooring – some tiles were covered and broken going into our old ground floor toilet which was located where the end of the tiles are now.

Our new kitchen equipment has arrived and is ready to be installed.
Aside from cooking breakfasts, we will have a full food menu throughout the day we will be open to non-resident guests. We are fully licensed with a bar.

Talking of our sea-view restaurant, we have just started hanging the first of our chandeliers. The unfinished paintwork behind is because we have not yet hung some very special wallpaper in this room.

This picture of Louisa Bay Broadstairs which we’ve just bought will probably be hung in our sea-view restaurant.

We’ve also been restoring chandeliers that will go in our guest bedrooms.

This fantastic view is taken from the North Foreland Golf Club looking towards the North Foreland lighthouse and Joss Bay – The Bay Tree is just beyond where the lighthouse is – and can be seen at night from The Bay Tree flashing and warning ships

    Great that you have posted progress of your major project on your website, really interesting.

    Good luck guys, hope its not proving too stressful (building works normally are even when they go reasonably smoothly)!

    Looking forward to the opening and as a local, sampling food during the day. Hope Lulu my 4 legged friend will be allowed to join me?
