Read a few reviews from our Cottage owners and our guests….

“We have rented cottages around the UK for the past 10 years – in half-terms and Easter holidays with our two children – and found the team at Keeper’s Cottages to be the best so far.<We rented Falstaff House, very last minute, at Easter in 2014, and Camilla was friendly, professional, accommodating, as well a being so understanding and patient with me! We had a number of guests with different requests (including a dog!) and she made sure that all of our requirements were met. We were met at the property, shown around, and given so much useful information about the town, restaurants, outings and events. Her insider knowledge on Deal was invaluable, and made our visit that much more special.The website is very user-friendly, and gave us a great sense of what to expect. The property was beautiful and everything the website indicated it would be.

We will definitely return, and look forward to using Keeper’s Cottages many times in the future. I will definitely be recommending Keeper’s Cottages to friends and family.”

“Having used numerous holiday letting agents over the years, Keeper Cottages offer the best customer service we have ever experienced. They very quickly responded to all the queries we had before our holiday and were happy to offer great tips on what to do and where to go”

“Having never stayed on the Kent coast, we were pleased there was so much to do in Deal and the surrounding area. A great place to visit and lots for the children to do”

“Camilla and Keepers Cottages provide exactly what they say they offer on their website: the standard of the accommodation is high and customer service is exceptional. Since using them, I have very happily recommended Keepers Cottages to family and friends!”

We wanted to share our home with our guests and make their stay in Deal a relaxing and pleasurable experience . We spoke to several agencies and Keepers Cottages impressed us with their personal and professional approach . Camilla and her team work so hard and really care about owners and their guests . Their local knowledge and the fact they are based in Deal make all the difference.

Falstaff House

Would strongly recommend ‘Keepers Cottages’ and 181 Beach St. After looking around at lots of other cottages and other websites I came across Keepers and never looked back. Camilla was incredibly helpful – even offering help if she couldn’t manage to find a cottage for my required – and very last minute dates. 181 Beach St was perfect, on the sea front and very close to town but just the right distance from the pier, and town centre. There was none of the usual nightmare time restrictions on when we could access the cottage and flexibility on the time that we had to leave which makes such a difference with young children. The house was very practical, spacious ( we were 2 families with 4 young children) comfortable and homely: great artwork, DVDs and books, toys for the children and all those things you end up needing and have forgotten in the kitchen e.g. oil, ketchup, foil etc etc. Camilla was so helpful throughout our stay – even finding us a scooter to borrow for the one child without one!

Could not recommend highly enough

Thank you for facilitating a wonderful stay at 181 Beach Street over Christmas 2013 and please thank the owner for lovely Christmas goodies that were left for us. For a family of 5 adults, this was an amazing experience. The house is full of character which made its presence felt throughout the week long stay. The beds were comfortable, the two bathrooms avoided all sorts of squabbles as did the second lounge (we brought an additional TV with us). We appreciated the large fridge and the fact that the more than adequate stock of glasses, cutlery plates, toilet paper and the like.


I thought you would appreciate our impressions of Falstaff House. I believe we might have been the first guests since the house became a holiday let.

We spent a wonderful few days in the house in October and found it very comfortable and warm. It is very well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. The owners have prepared the property in such a way that it is like entering a welcoming home rather than a temporary let.

Step outside and one is straight onto one of the most delightful and individual high streets in the country with the sea front running parallel just a couple of hundred yards away.

You won’t find better and we would highly recommend Falstaff House and Keepers Cottages.
