About the property

Cottage in Deal, Kent, England

Just a seagull’s hop from the sea Seashell Cottage is a charming and peaceful home away from home.

Deal is the perfect holiday or weekend destination and its award-winning High Street lined with quirky independent shops, markets and cafés is just a short walk away along the unspoilt promenade. Closer still is thef Strand, where you’ll find the green and bandstand, a family run bakery, pubs, convenience stores and a café serving brilliant breakfasts complete with sea view. You can even buy freshly caught fish direct from the boatmen on the beach.

Deal itself is a picturesque Georgian seaside town with two Tudor castles, local museums and a striking modernist pier all worth a visit. Within a thirty minute drive are Dover Castle, the cathedral city of Canterbury and the major shopping outlet at Ashford. If you prefer two legs or two wheels, there are plenty of country and coastal paths and trails just waiting to be explored.

For golfers, the area boasts no less than three superb British Open courses – Royal St. Georges, Royal Cinque Ports and Princes.

Also within reach are the Turner Contemporary, Dreamland and the extraordinary shell grotto in Margate, Dickensian Broadstairs, Ramsgate’s Royal Harbour, Whitstable and the picturesque Medieval streets of Sandwich.

Head out into the countryside and you’ll find Wingham Wildlife Park, Howletts and Wildwood – all fantastic places to see animals up close and personal.

And of course, France is a mere 20 miles away if you fancy stocking up the cellar.

Wherever your day takes you, Seashell Cottage is the perfect place to return to. It has been tastefully renovated to a very high standard, with a light and airy lounge, dining room and galley kitchen downstairs, and two spacious double bedrooms and toilet upstairs. Outside, the garden is the ideal spot to enjoy an al fresco aperitif. Sky TV (including Sky Sports) and Wi-fi ensure that indoor entertainment is also taken care of on those few and far between rainy days.

Dogs are very welcome at Seashell Cottage (as you’ll find they are in many pubs and cafés in Deal) but no smoking, please, for the comfort and enjoyment of our non-smoking guests.

Lovely property by the coast

  • 5 of 5

Location of the property was perfect being metres from the beach and also close to amenities and attractions. Property was well presented and suited our needs well for a short stay with dogs. The owner was also friendly and helpful.

Lovely clean place with all the facilities even Sky Sports.

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to Deal we were impressed and enjoyed the lovely promenade with views across to France on a good day. Lovely cottage but had to be careful on the narrow stairs. Had a nice day in Broadstairs bay.and St Margaret's bay watching the ferries in and out of Dover.

Cosy Comfortable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Took a mid week break with another couple and thought the cottage was ideally situated for visits out. Loved the nautical theme. A lovely clean comfortable and cosy cottage. We are in the older age group and having the bathroom downstairs was a slight problem. (The little en suite loo was ingenius) in one of the bedrooms but would have been great if in both. .

Beautifully presented cottage with everything we needed. Very close to the beach in Deal

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our week stay here, Mark and Sarah made us very welcome. Deal is a good base to visit this part of Kent, with Dover castle and Canterbury close by.

Cottage very well presented and equipped. Only thing lacking was a shower curtain.

Seashell cottage is a great place to stay - really comfy beds, great décor and everything you need. It is very well positioned for the town and near to the beach.
