Booked a last minute short break at Lifeboat Cottage.
Really enjoyed our stay, cottage had everything we needed and was within easy reach of shops, bars and restaurants.
Hope to stay for longer next time.
Beautifully clean and stylish cottage, well placed by the beach in Walmer.
Lifeboat Cottage is perfectly situated for enjoying all the fun that the Kent seaside has to offer. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and look forward to coming back soon. Many thanks to Mark for greeting us and making us feel welcome.
Home Away From Home
We came here for 2 weeks from Ontario, Canada, for an extended family reunion with family in the UK and from Australia. The cottage is immaculately clean, well designed and has everything you could possibly need to make it an enjoyable stay, and there are so many thoughtful touches. Upon arrival, there was tea, coffee, milk and sugar and a fresh cream cake in the fridge! The beds are very comfortable, and there is lots of wardrobe and drawer space. We were able to make supper for family (5 at a time!) and the kitchen has everything you would need. The location is great - you can see the Lifeboat building from the front bedroom window, and it is within walking distance of shops, seafront and restaurants. The Stag pub is literally almost opposite, and it has a courtyard type garden at the back that the family made use of. Buses run to Canterbury and Dover, and the bus stop is very close to the cottage. It is a ten/fifteen minute walk to the town centre (depending on how fast you walk and whether you go direct, or meander along the seafront). The Zetland pub is a long walk or short drive away, and the food is great. Best fish and chips was Mario's along the Strand. Great Indian food at Namaste, which is on the Dover Road. We loved every minute of our stay and would certainly come back if we ever needed a place to stay in Walmer.
Beautiful cottage in a great position
We were most impressed with Lifeboat Cottage and had a lovely stay. The cottage is beautifully decorated to a high standard and very well equipped. There are 2 good sized, very comfortable double bedrooms. Location is ideal - very close to the sea front.
Lovely,clean, comfortable cottage
Cottage was tastefully decorated and had everything you could possibly need. It was very clean and cosy; a real home from home. The beds and sofa were comfortable.
It was in a good quiet location; close to town and seafront. You could park outside the cottage and the local restaurants and bakery were really great.
Mark kept in touch with us and was very helpful.
We would definitely stay here again.
Very comfortable pretty cottage in fab location
Great stay one street back from beach. Cottage was lovely with everything you could possibly need. Cosy beds with good quality linen and comfortable lounge.
A lovely touch was dog treats,bowls and balls for throwing supplied.
Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants and pubs. We loved our stay and would recommend Lifeboat Cottage.
Excellent fireworks by pier made our New Year. If we are in area again would definitely rebook here. Thankyou Mark and your wife for the lovely cake to welcome us.
Just a note to people less able than us that stairs are very steep, no problem for us but maybe not so good for the elderly or people with mobility problems.
