Valentine's House


Valentine’s House is a charming holiday home in the heart of the conservation area of the pretty Georgian town of Deal. The house has a rich history and has been named after one of the first residents Valentine Myhill, who was living in the house in 1841. The son of a prestigious Cinque Ports Pilot, he unfortunately lost both his parents at a young age and went to sea at the age of 15. The full story of his life and the other residents of the house has been left for guests who enjoy history. The house is still full of character but has been transformed into a stylish and comfortable holiday home with a mid-century feel. Set over four floors with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a downstairs toilet, the star attraction of the house is the fabulous roof terrace with fantastic views across the Conservation area. Situated in a quiet side street just 2 minutes walk from the main promenade and beach, Valentine’s House is also just a few yards from the buzzing high street with its delis, boutique shops, antiques shops, cafes and restaurants. Deal Castle and the Pier are only a 5 minutes stroll along the promenade and further coastal walking takes you through Walmer and Kingsdown to the lovely Zetland Arms, one of the few UK public houses on a beach, with views of the iconic white cliffs. Walking in the other direction along the coast you will walk past some of the most prestigious links golf courses in England and almost deserted beaches.

"Keepers Cottages were absolutely fantastic. The cottage itself offered so many different comfort zones that really the whole family could have their space if needed. My favourite place was the roof terrace. Absolutely stunning. When we stayed it was full moon. The view was breath taking. Comfort was really the word. Everything is easy to use and the locations just perfect 😃"

"A wonderful stay at Valentine’s House! Every detail wonderfully thought out. We love the decor and house plus Deal too. Lovely walks, restaurants, bars and a great beach. We very much hope to return - huge thank you for a wonderful holiday."

Guy & Jo Wilson, Jan 2024

"This house is an absolute delight. Situated in the heart of the old town, it is perfectly located and as you walk through the streets you feel like you have stepped back in time. The seafront is a stone’s throw away, as are all the restaurants, bars and other amenities. The house itself is charming and beautifully appointed. It has been recently renovated to an exceptionally high standard throughout with details that make the house cosy and welcoming. It is significantly more spacious than it first appears with rooms spread over 4 floors. It's worth noting that the stairs, while adding character, might be a bit steep for some. We had a lovely weekend here and will definitely visit again."

Simon & Nicky, Nov 2023

"We just came down for a long weekend but I really enjoyed Deal and the house was great. All the furniture and beds feel new and clean but there is also loads of character with the antique furniture and period house features. We will definitely come back again."

Mark & family, Nov 2023

"We’re had a wonderful time in this pretty special historic house. A gorgeous home exquisitely appointed in the lovely conservation area of Deal, a seaside gem. Fantastic hospitality from the locals and a beautiful place to stay! Thank you."
