Deal, Kent

This character cottage on historic Middle Street, Deal is a truly wonderful property. You cannot fail to be impressed by the styling, design and degree of comfort in this holiday home. Laid out over three floors, Skippers has three bedrooms and sleeps six people comfortably. Situated in the middle of Deal, and just one street behind the High Street and the seafront, this is the perfect place to stay and explore this seaside town steeped in maritime history. Stepping in through the front door is like stepping back in time to Deal's dark smuggling days as a point of interest some Deal smugglers served as pilots for Nelson and it was from Deal that guinea boats were constructed to ship gold across the channel to pay napoleons armies. This history can be felt in the walls of this exceptional property. From the ancient, solid front door to the huge, impressive inglenook fireplaces adorning the wall of both the downstairs and the master bedroom to the vintage furniture that works so well with the contemporary wood panelling and modern framed artwork. There is even a lovely sunny courtyard with potted bay tree and herbs to enjoy the fresh sea air.
From £795 for 7 nights

"We absolutely loved our stay with Keepers Cottages in Deal. This gorgeous property was perfectly located for lovely walks along the beach, super close to shops, restaurants and cafés and a 5 min walk from the impressive Deal Castle. It was perfect! We definitely stay again."

Sarah Duncan, Mar 2022

"Such a wonderful character property, visited Deal for the weekend with some friends, the cottage was in a perfect location and very cosy with the log burner on after a long day out walking. Ticked every box for us!"

Melissa, Mar 2022

"Beautiful cottage in a fantastic location - can't recommend it highly enough."

Katherine, Dec 2021

"Gorgeous cottage! Cosy, warm and lovely. A second from the beach and all the restaurants/shops in Deal. The fireplace is a must. Camilla was super accommodating. Would definitely be coming back!"

Blanca, Dec 2021

"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."
