    The communication leading up to the holiday was excellent and the welcome touches unexpected and appreciated.

    The communication leading up to the holiday was excellent and the welcome touches unexpected and appreciated. We particularly loved the brightness and layout of the kitchen. A very positve experience. We were sad to leave!

The property

Resting in the pretty coastal town of Deal, Kent lies Poppy Cottage, a charming mid-terrace cottage ideal for couples or a small family to discover the south coast.

Offering a homely décor while being within walking distance from amenities, this property is the ideal base for exploring the rugged coastlines and glorious beaches and landscapes.

As you step into the cottage, the sitting room welcomes you with plush leather sofas and a Smart TV above a pretty feature fireplace, here you can relax and unwind with your loved ones after a tiresome day at the beach.

Moving through the property, the well-equipped kitchen offers all the appliances you need to whip up delicious meals for the group, including an electric oven and gas hob, and a large fridge/freezer.

From here, gather for dinner as a group in the dining room as you catch up on the day's events and plan the next day's action-packed adventures.

Escape to the lower-ground floor, where you will find a quaint snug home to two more sofas where you can snuggle up with your loved ones or indulge in a good book and a cup of tea.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to the bedrooms for some rest; this delightful dwelling offers two bedrooms on the first floor including a double and a twin.

The double bedroom is decorated in a muted sunshine-yellow complete with a TV and white wooden furniture, giving the bedroom a joyous and comforting feel, and the twin bedroom is decorated with a light blue and white furniture, bringing the seaside charm into the cottage.

Guests will also benefit from a sleek shower room fitted with a walk-in shower, a basin and WC, where you can freshen up ahead of another fun-filled day of exploring.

Spend your summer morning enjoying a light breakfast and a coffee in the courtyard where you will find patio furniture perfect for a spot of al fresco dining.

Treat the chef of the group to a night off and visit one of the local restaurants just on the doorstep such as The Sicilian café for a tasty lunch, or Victuals & Co for a delicious evening menu.

Spend a day at the beach and wandering Deal Pier, just a short walk away from the cottage, here you can paddle in the waves and if there are any adventurous members of the group, bring your watersport gear along and take to the waves.

Deal is home to a wealth of attractions, including its two wonderful castles, Deal Castle and Walmer Castle; Deal castle is renowned for its popular and informative audio guides, while Walmer Castle is home to stunning gardens and quaint tea rooms where you can stop for coffee and cake before heading off on your next adventure.

Embrace the local culture and visit the Linden Hall Studio; open to the public, this bright and airy gallery hosts visiting artists and masterclasses to suit a variety of tastes.

Branching slightly further afield, Canterbury Historic River Tours rest a scenic drive from the dwelling and offer a fascinating insight to the area's history while soaking up the stunning canals and black-and-white architecture.

Perfect any time of year, Poppy Cottage is a wonderful base for you and your loved ones to discover Kent's delights.

About the location

DEAL

Dover 8.5 miles; Canterbury 24 miles.

Deal is an historic, Georgian coastal town boasting two castles, both open to the public, two small museums, and two markets held weekly. The town offers restaurants with cuisine ranging from the traditional, to exotic delicacies from the Orient, but, if fish is your desire then why not catch your own by enjoying a spot of fishing from the beach or pier? Deal Castle is an ideal place for children to explore, rugged and exciting with audio guides to help you get the best information, whilst taking in this impressive castle built in the time of Henry VIII. Walmer Castle, which became the home of The Duke of Wellington, and was the late Queen Mother's favourite, is just along the coast with gardens and tea rooms open from April until October, and their scones are highly recommended! Deal was the most important Naval base in Britain during the Age of Sail and although long gone, its maritime heritage is still inherent in its Conservation Area architecture and house names. Deal became a smuggler's paradise during the 1700s, and heritage street maps show where rum and brandy were rolled by casket avoiding the Excise men. Why not take the cycle path from Deal to Kingsdown, a pretty Kent village with views across to France? Here you can rest and recuperate in one of the three pubs all serving excellent food. If golf is your game then there are 12 courses within a 30 minute journey, but Royal Cinque Ports, Royal St. Georges and Kingsdown are within an easy distance. For sheer imposing magnificence nearby Dover Castle is an absolute must visit on any visitor's list. Spectacularly situated above the White Cliffs of Dover, this magnificent castle has guarded our shores from invasion for 20 centuries. Deal won the Daily Telegraph's ‘High Street of the Year’ award in January, and was voted as the number 1 coastal town in Britain by them in November, 2014. Also named as one of the ‘top 30 weekend retreats’ in March 2014 by The Times, Deal is the perfect location for families and friends looking to pursue outdoor activities or laze on the beach enjoying the sea air. Stroll along the cobbled streets, sit and relax outside a bistro or tea room with a coffee, or just gaze out to sea; Deal has something for everyone!
