Spacious cottage in the lovely town of deal. Great location - everywhere walkable and beach 2 mins away. Has everything you need for a lovely family break, including a nice outdoor seating area. If you like firm beds though this is probably not the place for you as the antique frames don't provide much support. Other than that it's a great place from which to enjoy Deal!
