The wholly underestimated delight of April to July, even August is of sunny days, with rain only rarely. Daytime temperatures of up to 30C and only dropping to about 14C at night. The pool remains a comfy 28C, whilst the sea by August finally drops to about 19C. For the golfer or prospective pilot, this is a truly wonderful time to come, both airways and fairways being delightfully quiet.
For the golfer coming from Europe, USA or Canada, the green fees are most reasonable and the courses are quiet. If you want to bring a party of golfers and enjoy a local match at Southbroom, I'm sure we can conjure a team up against you as well.
For the learner pilot, now getting into the USA to learn to fly has become very difficult due to their strict visa requirements, Southbroom offers a fabulous base to learn to fly from the local airport of Margate. Let us supply you with the details.
Treat yourself to a variety of therapies, available to your specific needs – in the comfort and privacy of your own room. Best booked in advance to avoid disappointment of lack of availability.
