A playful, inspiring & joyful space for one & all!

Situated only moments from the sandy seashore and with independent boutiques, cafes and restaurants right outside the door, Big Bit is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the vibrancy Margate has to offer.


An open plan living/dining and kitchen area, with a raised sleep pod in one corner and a secret snug underneath, which doubles as a second bedroom. The incredible location alone is its selling point, but when inside what stands Big Bit apart from the rest is its playful & bespoke layout and decor. 

There is also room for a deluxe inflatable double bed, the good kind that doesn’t deflate throughout the night, which can be popped in the living area.

Guest access

Guests have access to Big Bit but the space is adjoined to Little Bit Margate, a gift, treat & stationery boutique, so you are more than welcome to pop in and take a peek!

We will be close by for any information or help you might need throughout your stay. And if we happen to be away, we will leave you in the trusted hands of dear friends to aid you.


 Margate Old Town is utterly charming. Cobbled streets, market squares and an array of incredible independent galleries, shops, restaurants and cafes. Margate is so vibrant and Old Town showcases that. From
Big Bit’s front door the sea is a 20 second walk. The Turner Contemporary Gallery is 1 minute and Dreamland is 5 minutes! It really is the easiest place to find, and to explore all that Margate has to offer.


Margate is small enough to walk around. But on a cold, wet or windy night there are taxis of you are heading up to Cliftonville. There are also bikes available to be hired from the train station, (even Sinclair C5’s for hire up at Fort Road Yard!) and a good bus route called the Loop if you would like to travel further afield and have no car. There is free parking outside the property for 1 hour only, and we can show you where to park for longer durations free of charge. There is a free car park only 5 mins walk from the property.


What people are saying…

This little place is tonic for the soul. Small but perfectly formed. I stayed with my husband and two boys and we loved every magical minute. The layout is clever, happy and stylish and well thought out. You can’t be grumpy in this house. Would really recommend and will definitely be heading back. Enjoy

Now that was a fun and funky place to stay!! Hidden right in the heart of Margate’s beautiful old town this place is full of sunshine even if it is throwing it down outside. Polly, Jim and their amazing pup ‘Dude’ immediately made us feel welcome and warm. Their shop is full of colour and fun which filters straight into the utterly brilliant and unique experience of entering and staying at Big Bit. A cosy, creative and clever place. Would 100% recommend and can’t wait to come back. Thanks for the memories.

My teenage girls and I woke up over the rainbow in this dreamy space that was so full of fun vibes we all couldn’t stop smiling for our entire stay! If you are lucky enough to stay at Polly, Jim and Dude’s colourful space one day, then I’m afraid (no chance of a lottery win for you in this life-time), all your lucky vouchers will have been used up…and couldn’t have been more happily spent!! Thank you for all magical memories Big Bit :))xx

Big Bit is the best Airbnb I’ve stayed in. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, in a fab location in the centre of the old town, with great hosts this is it. Colourful, exciting, inspiring and totally uplifting my friend and I loved it here. An absolute joy to experience the space and stay here, it made my birthday one to remember. Can’t wait to go back! Thank you Polly, we had the best time, so pleased my friend discovered you on Instagram.
