Beautiful cottage with everything you need. Felt very cosy even in January and the log burner was a real treat. Spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated, we couldn't have asked for more. Booking process very straightforward with quick and very helpful responses, and key collection swift and easy, meaning we could settle in and start our break straightaway. We loved our short stay in Deal and this was the ideal central base for exploring the town and the area. Louise and Family, January 2020
Super close to the beach on the newer side of Deal town. Traditional style cottage with loads of original features. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen. The town has loads of lovely traditional pubs, a few great restaurants (as well as loads of fab fish and chip shops of course) and some lovely vintage shops. The beach walks are lovely especially the walk up to Kingsdown. I'd definitely stay there again, it made a lovely base for our two week break. Niki, December 2019
