Egyptian cotton bedding, blankets to keep you warm and 200 year old flint walls to keep you cool! We also provide kitchen basics to get you started for your trip and a great guide to local activities and places to eat and drink. Try our amazingly comfortable antique Vono mahogany beds! Staples and Co have been handmaking beds from 1895. Our twin beds have a Royal warrant originally granted by King George V. In October 1915, the King was advised by his physicians to sleep on a Staples bed after an accident. The unique construction of which had already demonstrated its superiority in maintaining correct spinal support, which we now recognise as being an essential ingredient in healthy, restful sleep. That the bed had “given satisfaction” to the King was quoted in all literature and advertisements by the company. In the ensuing years, similar beds were supplied to many of the Royal Residences. These original frames and mattresses are Staples No.1 Mattress by appointment to HM The Queen.More

We had a lovely first family holiday in Margate, and The Old Barrel Store made it for us. It had everything you could possibly need for a young baby, and the local recommendations provided were spot on. Great location, too.
