"This is a great location for exploring Deal, almost on the High Street but without the hustle and bustle (too close to the fishmongers and French deli if you are planning on leaving the same size as you arrived!) and very close to the seafront. Considering it is in town it is remarkably quiet. I was lucky to experience a mini heat wave when I first arrived so I can see the sheltered garden off the kitchen would be fab for outdoor dining in the summer. Then came the north wind, it was pretty cold out on the seafront (snowed one day !) but sooooo cosy in the cottage it was super to come back after every outing. The Writer's Cottage has everything you could need for a fantastic break in Deal, I would very much recommend it and also the service received from the Keepers Cottages."
"“Great location The house is very well located..just a few steps from the town and sea..the house itself is charming and well laid out to maximize the use .a couple of very good pubs and restaurants close by....”"
"We had a wonderful time in Deal over the New Year, all made better by Camilla and team being on hand to answer any questions we had. The cottage was immaculately clean and stylish and had everything we needed to feel at home. The location is excellent, within walking distance to all the best spots in Deal (The Rose Hotel was a favourite!) Would highly recommend this wonderful cottage and we’re already looking forward to our next stay."
The pallet of soft white walls, exposed beams, wooden floors and soft carpets in the bedrooms, give the house a homely, easy-going feel which will suit most guests looking for a relaxed location to unwind.
Arranged over three floors, there are two double bedrooms and a cloakroom with WC/ handbasin on the first floor. The large, bright reception room and relaxed dining room are on the ground floor, the spacious kitchen & attractive master bathroom, are located on the lower ground floor.
The property has a deceptively large, and very attractive rear garden. Access to the garden is via the lower-ground floor, however the addition of French doors and a pretty Juliette-style balcony in the dining room, allows you to enjoy the lovely garden vista from the ground floor.
The bright kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare meals during your stay, whether you choose to eat in the cosy dining room during colder months, or in the beautiful garden with its choice of seating, in the warmer months!
Step through the front door of the Writer's Cottage and into the charming reception room with wooden floors and soft grey sofas. There is a cable TV & music system with blue tooth speakers.The light decor and exposed beams give the space a historical, yet cosy feel.
The relaxed dining room with wooden table and chairs to comfortably seat 6 people, has French doors with a Juliette style balcony, which allow a beautiful view of the garden and add to the feeling of space in this open-plan room.
Lower Ground Floor
Stairs lead you down to a large, Mediterranean-style kitchen, which has painted built in cupboards, pretty tiles and a useful breakfast bar with high stools to perhaps enjoy a morning coffee. The fully equipped kitchen has an ample supply of glass, chinaware and cooking equipment. There is a dishwasher, microwave, and a gas hob with oven under.
The wonderful, wood-panelled master bathroom, has a freestanding roll top bath, separate built in shower cubicle, handbasin, WC & bidet.
This bedroom has an attractive street view, twin beds with beautifully upholstered, large headboards, ample storage and soft carpets.
The cloakroom is located next door to the master bedroom and has a WC and handbasin.
Bedroom two is located at the rear of the house with a pretty annexed ceiling and exposed beams. There is a king-size wooden-framed bed, generous storage and subtle lighting. This cosy bedroom continues the same fresh, modern approach which flows through this lovely home.
The garden is a really lovely large sunny area. There is a paved area for eating and the rest is laid to lawn.
Deal train station is just a few minutes’ walk away & the hi-speed train takes just one hour and twenty minutes (approximately) to travel to & from St Pancras International.
The high street has everything you might need during your stay, the North end has various independent cafes, coffee shops, galleries & stylish stores, selling unique gifts & homewares.
The South end of the High Street, has many of the bigger high-street names, alongside two traditional fruit & vegetable shops, two butcher shops, two chemists & various other suppliers offering a range of products.
Wander into town, which is steeped in history and tales of smuggling, with two impressive castles to visit, the newly opened museum of moving images and time ball tower, you will not be lost for things to do.
Enjoy a drink in one of the many coffee shops, hire a bike and cycle along the promenade which stretches towards Sandwich in one direction or Kingsdown in the other. If walking is more your thing, then take a walk across the cliffs towards Dover. The sandy beaches of Ramsgate and Broadstairs are within an easy drive.
The stunning pebble beach is an approximate five minutes’ walk from Union Road & is the perfect spot to relax, enjoy a picnic or take a dip with spectacular views of Deal's famous brutalist pier and the English Channel. On a clear day you can even see France!
There is a popular market on Saturdays which sells everything from French wine & cheese, (you can even sit sample a glass or two!)There is a coffee stall, artisan bakers, international foods, vintage clothing & antiques. As well as this you can buy locally sourced fruit, vegetables and flowers. The market is a great social gathering point and a must during your stay in Deal.
