We loved it! 4.8/5
We loved it for many reasons, but particularly the immediacy of the sea. So close to the water, we felt we were on a ship! Would recommend to anyone.

A great stay 4.3/5
Joanna , the host , was amazing and made us feel comfortable and on our check out gave us a gift . The place is ideally located on the beachfront . The sound of the sea is so soothly and immediately helps you to distress. Everything was perfect . We will return as its simply beautiful.

Perfect location ! 4.7/5
Brilliant little cabin with incredible views. Peaceful place & close to Sandgate cafes and Folkestone street food on the Harbour Arm. Great location to explore coast - Samphire Hoe and Dungeness, and pretty pastel houses in Deal. Cycle hire nearby and everywhere is flat paths and accessible along the coast path. Joanna was lovely and the perfect host. Wed love to visit again!

Beachside bliss 5/5
Pebbles is the perfect bolt-hole for those wanting autonomy and flexibility by the sea. The terrace and eating area are what makes the place extra special. It reminded me of times spent in Italy, walking around on warm floor slabs and such close access to the beach. The small but perfectly laid out interior has everything you need. Hearing the sea is soothing and the ever changing sea-scape and sky-scapes are mesmerising. From glancing at France, to the towers at Dungeness , the passing ships at dusk and the crunching of passers-by on the beach pebbles. Loved it all. Working from Pebbles was a bit difficult as I couldn't get good internet connection, but then a break was probably what I needed and any emails I needed to catch up on I managed out and about on my adventures. The provision of beach towels and a carry bag was a helpful touch from the lovely owners who have made Pebbles the wonderful place it is.

I'd rather be at Pebbles! 4.7/5
We visited on a chilly February weekend & absolutely loved it. Pebbles is right on the beach, so when the weather is poor you can lay in bed all cosy & warm watching the rain pelting against the window & listening to the waves crashing against the pebble beach. And when the sun shines the view is beautiful and the room lights up. With regards to facilities, the room has all you need for a weekend break with a basic kitchen. There is also a large outside area, which in the summer would be perfect for sunbathing with a book, and considerably more comfortable than the pebble beach. Location-wise, it is perfect for a short walk into Sandgate where there are some great places to eat & drink (particularly The Providence Inne, where Daryl will sort out some cracking seafood for you). And slightly further afield Folkstone offers everything you could want, still close enough to walk to. Joanna was a lovely host, and I am sure we will be returning again for a relaxing break away from London sometime soon. Cheers, Ryan & Becky

Looking for a unique place to stay... 5/5
Pebbles will not disappoint you... It's a wonderful location. Sea view and accommodation are just fantastic!

Cosy space 5/5
Stayed for 3 nights and it was glorious! The beach side accommodation was perfect for the two of us plus the weather was glorious which made it even better. It was clean, well equipped and the host we met, Jo, was a gracious host. There is no oven but a portable hob, microwave and slow cooker meant you could, very easily, prepare simple meals without a loss of hassle. There is a tiered BBQ area you can also use as well as a large patio area overlooking the sea. You can walk from there to both Folkestone and Hythe along the sea front but only minutes away from local shops. We had a wonderful break and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Very happy with our stay in Pebbles 5/5
The property was great, as they say small but perfectly formed! It was very cheerfully decorated, warm, well equipped and a very relaxing place to stay right on the beach. Jo and Jerry were very friendly nice people, helpful and responded immediately to any query. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great so we didn't have much opportunity to use the well equipped terrace and only used the Quarterdeck to BBQ a couple of times but they are excellent additions. Would love to return especially if we could book a heatwave too.

A much needed weekend away 5/5
After 15 months staring at the inside of an apartment, a weekend staring at the English Channel from the sun deck of this wonderful property was a sheer delight. The property is excellently equipped for a cosy getaway for a couple with breathtaking views of the coast, private open air deck for relaxing, a sun deck with a BBQ for even more relaxing, and close to fantastic shopping, bars and restaurants. The hosts are welcoming and available should you need anything, and a wonderful couple to spend time with. This is our third stay at this coastal gem and we look forward to staying here again.

Pebbles - for a perfect relaxing break. 5/5
Pebbles is a delightful accommodation - perfect for its position so close to the sea with easy access to the pathway by the sea (flat as well) to walk to either to Folkestone or Hythe. Everything you need is provided for a self catering break, with places to eat not too far away if required. A very quiet and peaceful and private area perfect for relaxation. We had a lovely time there. Joanne made us feel very welcome when we arrived and gave us information on the locality and checked that we were happy with everything - a perfect host.

Great stay in Sandgate 4.8/5
Pebbles is a great little beachside retreat in Kent. Whilst it's just a few feet from the beach and a 10 minute stroll to some local pubs and cafes, both Folkestone and Hythe are also in within walking distance. The property has plenty of space for 2 people and has a enough facilities to make light lunches or even a bbq. Very friendly and helpful host on hand if you need anything but who will also give you the privacy to enjoy a relaxing break.
Stephen Knight | 16 June 2021
Our two day stay at pebbles was perfect. I cant think of anything that wouldve improved it. The location is outstanding, and the cabin is fabulous with perfect outside seating as well. Joanna, the host is lovely, and the little parting gift was a lovely thought.
Caroline Shearer | 15 June 2021
Super location 5/5
Wonderfully located cabin, a few steps from the beach with lovely (bracing) walks to Hythe or Folkestone. We experienced all 4 seasons in 1 week but this didn't detract from our enjoyment at all. Very comfy cabin and lovely to see and listen to the waves from your bed. Jo was a delightful host. Suffice to say we've already booked for next year.
David Floyd | 24 May 2021
Really good break 4.7/5
The arrangements and organisation by the company Bloom Stays was excellent. We were welcomed warmly by the proprietor. The accommodation provided us with superb views of the beach. We enjoyed good walks along the Leas. Lovely holiday and break.
Judith Wilson | 10 November 2020
Wake up to the sound of the waves. 4.8/5
Amazing location. Walk straight out of the cabin onto the beach. Extremely spacious terrace area to soak up the morning sun, and an idyllic outdoor cooking/bbq area with heater to enjoy the sea air at all times of the year. Joanna and Jerry were very attentive and gracious hosts. Highly recommend!

Bank holiday weekend break 4.8/5
Pebbles is a gem on the Kent coast. The lodge has the most beautiful sea views and is spotlessly clean and well equipped. Joanna the host was very welcoming and took the time to talk to us which was lovely (thank you for the mug too!). Pebbles is the perfect place for couples to relax. With Covid we decided to self cater - although the kitchen area is small, we were able to cook some simple meals to enjoy. We used the slow cooker which has been recently added to the property and was great. Very close to things worth visiting. Would highly recommend!

5 nights at Pebbles - the perfect little getaway for two! 5/5
Clean & cosy, with friendly hosts. Perfect location for summer dips, kayaking & paddle boarding. A great find!
Sonja Nagorsen | 14 August 2020
Just perfect beachfront nest 4.8/5
spent a week at Pebbles for a corona-staycation 2020, could not have chosen a better place, right on the beach, all mod cons for a cosy time away. Great for walks, cycling, sunbathing and beach time. Owners very friendly and helpful. Could not ask for more
Elisa Surini | 27 July 2020
We spotted Pebbles on a visit to Sandgate and said how lovely it would be to stat here one day! So here we are! Arrived to lovely hosts - nice pad, beautiful lodge, lovely garden, lovely, deck, top bed - everything you require - and a great view too! Thanks to Jo and Jerry for their hospitality.
Martin & Trisha | 08 July 2020
Had a lovely stay here at Pebbles, very comfortable stay. We've done such a lot of sightseeing whilst here, nice to lay on bed and watch out over the channel and watch all the ships passing. We had dinner out at the Norfolk Hotel which was great. Would recommend and we would love to come back.
Peter and Kelly | 09 March 2020
Fantastic relaxing stay. Sitting up in bed watching the sea and wild waves crashing on the beach. Snug and warm from Storm Dennis. We will be back.
Ang and Peter | 10 February 2020
Well, what can we say? We have had a wonderful week at Pebbles. We came to spend Christmas with our family in Sandgate and arrived exhausted having driven here from Ager in SW France, where we have lived for 18 years, and driven first to Chelmsford, then Lincolnshire before settling in here for 7 glorious restful nights. Christmas Day was a beautiful sunny day, calm sea and amazing views. Plenty of rain and rough seas lashed the shores but we have been warm and cosy here. Daily walks to join the family, carol singing on the Harbour Arm at Folkestone, meal at Rocksalt, beautiful crib service at the Sandgate church. Going back with very happy memories and hoping to return for a further visit. Thank you Joanna.
Phil and Julia | 30 December 2019
Lovely relaxed, uninterrupted stay - thank you.
Ray | 04 November 2019
This trip was a birthday gift from my wife and we both fell in love with Pebbles. The bed was so comfortable and we woke every morning to the most wonderful sea views. Such a beautiful space with all the mod cons you could wish for. Jo is so sweet and helpful - such a lovely lady. We so enjoyed our walks into Folkestone to the Harbour Arm and the funky bar at the end. We even managed to watch a storm from our bed. Amazing place and a lovely coastline. Thank you Jo.
Keith and Demy | 07 October 2019
What a lovely gem Pebbles is. What more could you ask for. We've enjoyed walks into Folkestone and Sandgate. We've never felt so relaxed and chilled out. Waking up to that view every morning has been a treasure. The batteries are re charged and ready to face the world again. Thank you Joanna for making us feel very welcome. We will be back.
Matt and Emma | 23 September 2019
We've been here celebrating our honeymoon having got married last week. What a beautiful and peaceful place. We couldn't have asked for a better mini break. Joanna made us feel so welcome and left us a lovely bottle of fizz that we enjoyed on the deck in the sunshine. Perfection. We hope to be back.
Emily and Ryan | 09 September 2019
What a gem of a place, fantastic views, very welcoming hosts and a perfect place to relax. It's been great to have the beach so close. A dip in the sea, then relax on the Quarterdeck. Will definitely recommend to friends and I know we'll be back to this perfect little hideaway. Thanks Joanna fr a lovely few days.
David and Jo | 26 August 2019
Beautiful location, beautiful weather and beautiful company. It was a lovely getaway from regular life. Thank you Joanna for being a great host.
Vic and Nevine | 12 August 2019
Pebbles is a lovely place, we enjoyed it. We stayed for one week and every day was special. The sun deck and the kitchen on the Quarterdeck make is perfect, at the morning and the evening. Big ships, sun, water, good food, we are missing nothing.
Petra and Robert | 15 July 2019
Another visit - our third - and we still love it. Thanks Jo and Jerry - we had a great weekend.
Helen and Kevyn | 24 June 2019
Had a super time. Pebbles brilliant. Jo and Jerry lovely people and made us very welcome.
Terry and Christine | 10 June 2019
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful part of the world with us. We both feel blessed and very relaxed having spent the week at Pebbles. Hopefully we will be back one day soon.
Tracey and Chris | 13 May 2019
Who could want for more! A perfect getaway. Pebbles is everything is says on the website and so much more on top. We have had the most relaxing and comfortable weekend. Thank you Pebbles.
Sue and Paul | 15 April 2019
We have had thoroughly chilled and relaxing weekend. Have everything we needed. Made good use of the Quarterdeck and BBQ. Lovely walk into Hythe along the coast then back along the Canal. Off to walk to Folkestone today. Could happily live here! Pretty much perfect.
Sharon and Neal | 18 March 2019
Enjoyed our stay, lovely breakfast at the "Loaf" and a few evening drinks in the "Indoors" and a lovely brisk walk along the seafront to Folkestone. Pebbles is well equipped, clean and a great location.
John and Sally | 21 January 2019
Great place for our pre Christmas stay. Great location, lovely relaxing break. Made to feel very welcome. Thank you.
Isabel and Mike | 17 December 2018
Pebbles is such pretty perfection! Jo, such a lovely welcoming and kind host. Wonderfully located on the coastal path with beautiful sea views and what feels like a private beach, and such a lovely cosy immaculate haven to return to after a blustery day. Thank you so much. I'll definitely come again.
Pip | 12 November 2018
What a beautiful, immaculate place! I have had the most wonderful few days here - I have been thoroughly hypnotised by the constant sound of the waves, and can't remember the last time I felt so calm and relaxed. I'll be sad to go to bed tonight without any sea to listen to! Thank you for taking such care over the small details which make a difference and for being so kind and thoughtful more generally. I can't wait to come back.
Tess | 08 October 2018
Pebbles the most beautiful, cutest little gem ever found on the coast. We stayed for two nights and it was absolutely delightful, a real pleasure. So peaceful and quiet, we forgot what calm meant until we arrived here. Not really sure we can face noisy London again. Thanks for the amazing retreat. Battery fully charged to go back to civilisation again!
Coraly and Ismaed | 10 September 2018
A superb stay at Pebbles. We loved running down to the clear sea several times a day for a swim and eating out locally each evening. A lovely little bolthole - transporting us to exotic places - the weather helped too. Weren't we lucky! Thanks to Joanna and Jerry - wonderful hosts.
Helen and Kevyn | 06 August 2018
Wonderful hosts, wonderful views, wonderful weather and a gorgeous little weekend bolt hole for our child-free escape! Thank you so much for sharing this with us, it was such a privilege to be so close to the sea. Waking up, looking out the window and looking at the view each morning was so special. The coast path was a beautiful walk whichever direction we went and Hythe was well worth the visit when we eventually managed to drag ourselves out of the comfy chairs on the terrace!
Amiel and Peter | 09 July 2018
Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing quiet weekend. We've walked miles both ways to Folkestone and Hythe Railway Station along the coast path and Military Canal. Hythe is a wonderful High Street, with some lovely independents, especially the butchers! their sausage and meats were great. The garden heater and blankets are a godsend, for the evening with the glass of wine and excellent view. The Battle of Britain Museum and Memorial worth the visit if you enjoy history as we do. We have done beach cleans before, and we are really impressed with the beach and the streets are well cared for. Pebbles has been a lovely base. Thank you.
Kerry and Carl | 04 June 2018
We've had a lovely relaxing long weekend, perfect weather and fabulous hosts. From breakfast in the sun on the patio to bbq on the quarterdeck, through to late night drinks under the heater watching the lightening storm. Perfect little getaway for two people and we look forward to coming back for more sun.
