Located in one of the most prominent positions in Broadstairs overlooking the town, beach and sea, just a few minutes’ walk from the sandy Viking Bay. The Grade II listed mansion house was one of Charles Dickens' favourite lodging houses during the summer months and where he wrote his novel David Copperfield. 

The property is now a seven bedroom, 5 Star guest house and wedding venue with two licensed rooms for ceremonies and a restaurant/tea room. As a wedding/function venue the property can facilitate up to 65 seated guests, buffet for up to 120 and up to 200 in a marquee.

Andrew Moore at Christie & Co comments, “This is a fantastic opportunity to buy what must be one of the most historic properties associated with Charles Dickens and as such, only adds to its further interest as a business opportunity for a hands on owner, or indeed as a private residence. ”

Christie & Co is marketing Bleak House off a guide price of £3,000,000.
