COVID-19 Please Note: big bit I located on the ground floor & we live above. Big Bit is a bonkers load of colour & fun. Designed specifically to bring joy to anyone who enters, this space cannot fail to make your heart smile. From a secret den to a sunlit rainbow room, this unique place is unlike any other in the world, let alone Margate! Located in the heart of Old Town, you would never guess that this treasure is behind the Georgian facade. Perfect for those who love something extra ordinary.

The space
PLEASE NOTE - due to the current situation surrounding COVID 19 we need you to know a few things first. Big Bit shares access to the building with Jim & Polly. There will be rigorous cleaning inbetween guests and during your stay we will ask you to be vigilant with using the hand sanitiser when moving about the communal hallway and using the doors. We have been isolating for 4 months intensively and so we hope to keep the space as germ free as possible whilst still opening it back up for you all to enjoy. Many thanks in your cooperation. Now on to the fun bit!

It is important to note that the space consists of 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 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.
Nestled in the heart of Margate Old Town, there is a vast choice of independent boutiques, restaurants & cafes right outside the door.

Where you’ll be

Kent, England, United Kingdom

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 Bits 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.

During your stay

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. Due to COVID-19 we sadly can’t hug you on arrival. We share a communal hall way so would ask you use the sanitation stations provided when entering this space. To minimise time spent chatting, (as much as we love it) you will find circular stickers about the place, directing you to fun things, a little treasure hunt of handy tips.
