“lovely cottage in great location”
Reviewed 14 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We had a lovely week in Deal despite it raining more or less every day of our stay! The cottage is within easy walking distance of the town centre and the beach. We found the long stay car park opposite perfect for leaving the car after a day out - after 6pm it is free so we would park it there overnight and could see it from the house.
The living room is 'cosy' especially the dining table, but I guess most people would eat out so this wouldn't be such a problem. Having little children we ate in and it was a squash to get us all round the table.
Lovely big bedrooms with beautiful decor and comfy beds. A fuller curtain in the small room at the top would have prevented some very early mornings with my two, but we wedged a pillow against the window and that seemed to do the trick!!
Overall a lovely place to stay. It would feel a bit cramped with more than two adults I think but with better weather and eating out perhaps this wouldn't be such a problem.

“Very clean, very cosy cottage close to shops and beach”
Reviewed 10 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

House was in very good condition - decor was bright and cottagey, and everything was very clean. Kitchen was very well-equipped (I hope owner responds to my suggestion of getting a pepper grinder!) and both main bedrooms were a good size. Deal is a lovely little place, and this house provided a great way of feeling a part of it.
