So - I've booked a house...

It says it sleeps up to 8 but as I assume we all want separate beds it actually sleeps 6. So far, we have me [livejournal.com profile] moth2fic, plus [livejournal.com profile] margaret_r and [livejournal.com profile] zellieh for four nights - arriving Thurs 25th and leaving Monday 29th. Then we have [livejournal.com profile] thesmallhobbit for Friday and Saturday night, and [livejournal.com profile] moonlightmead for all or part of the time. That leaves one bed untaken so if anyone else wants to join in let me know.

So far as I can see from the info it's within walking distance of the main station. There's parking, and I will have my car, and for short distances all five of us could squeeze in.

I will be contacting them for address and postcode so that we can actually find it as the map is not wildly helpful. You will see, if you click on availability, that 'our' weekend is booked - by us, in fact. The landlady tells me the TripAdvisor website will not allow her to give the address and postcode until after the full amount is paid. However, she says it is off The Vale.

Costs: Complex arithmetic has been taking place and somebody will need to check at some point!! The full cost is £450.50 which includes a booking fee of £25. Including a booking fee, this means they're charging £112.63 per night - so not exactly as shown in the price table but pretty near. That, of course, is between three of us on some nights and five on others... At the moment I'm assuming 3 people want four nights and 2 people want 2 though I know [livejournal.com profile] moonlightmead might want more than two so that will alter the calculations. It should work out pretty reasonable and includes all linen, towels, electricity, etc. I will make exact calculations when we have exact information!

I can pay everything in advance including the refundable damage deposit so nobody needs to pay me anything till we get there. I'm using a credit card and the deposit is not as much as my share of the total will be. Then the final payment will be paid off before any interest becomes due. And we can sort out a supermarket run for breakfasts etc. nearer the time. By the look of things we could even host part of the weekend in the lounge!

It looks quite nice and I hope I've done the right thing/chosen the right place. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find places - all the hype about how many people a place sleeps is based on people sharing double beds... And landlords don't update their availability calendars. And, and, and... So once I knew this was available I grabbed it.

So - if anyone else wants to join us, first come first served. Or if anyone arrives last minute there could be accommodation with us. And I'll update you all by email or PM nearer the time.

So, I'm reminded that September isn't actually that far off (yikes), and [livejournal.com profile] kat_lair and I thought it would be a good idea to give a bit of an update.

So far, we have 11 tentative people confirmed for the weekend and we are absolutely fracking thrilled!!

We've got some ideas of stuff we can do already, but we can discuss that later! If anybody has any ideas please post HERE

Because of the relatively small group, [livejournal.com profile] kat_lair has graciously offered to hold the get-together at her home, rather than try and find somewhere to rent for a couple of days.

She lives in St Peters, which is about 15 minutes walk from Broadstairs station, which is then about 25/30 minutes walk from the beach. The train station and the town are in the same direction. We do still intend to go into Broadstairs proper, especially on the Friday afternoon/evening.


The important thing now though is accommodation.

You'll all have to book your own rooms I'm afraid but it shouldn't be too much of a problem this far in advance.

We thought we'd post some accommodation links. You definitely need to be booking to stay in Broadstairs or St Peters. Margate and Ramsgate will have a number of links as well, but both of these are one or two train stops away from Broadstairs.

Some linkage below:-




If you need a room mate (it's much easier to share and way more fun, and certainly cheaper) post a comment here and see if anybody else is of the same mind.
