    This is a gorgeous cottage: very cosy and compact but extremely well-equipped. When we arrived, everything was as clean as a whistle and even though the cottage is located in the centre of town, tucked behind Sainsburys and the railway station, it is still very peaceful.

    This is a gorgeous cottage: very cosy and compact but extremely well-equipped. When we arrived, everything was as clean as a whistle and even though the cottage is located in the centre of town, tucked behind Sainsburys and the railway station, it is still very peaceful. The beds are super comfortable too! Sunnyside Cottage is just a short walk away from the beach so we enjoyed walks along the shore at least once a day. And we had lots of fun exploring the local shops (many of them independent and quirky), visiting art galleries and the Sunday antique market, sampling the produce at the Saturday outdoor market and trying out one or two pubs and restaurants. The town was beautifully decorated for Christmas and there was a lovely community spirit at the carol singing evening at the bandstand. Everyone we met in Deal - including the owner of the cottage and our delightful neighbours in Anchor Lane - was so welcoming and friendly. We plan to move there early next year and we can't wait!

The property

This attractive, mid-terrace fisherman's cottage is centrally located in the historic, coastal town of Deal.

Full of character and charm, this self-catering cottage provides comfortable and homely accommodation, ideally suited for those wanting to explore this part of Kent.

Tucked away from the main town, your holiday cottage has excellent amenities just a few minutes’ walk away, so a perfect location for those guests who want to enjoy rest and relaxation but still only be a few minutes from the pubs, shops and restaurants.

Stepping inside you will find a surprisingly spacious sitting room with comfy seating and a dining area.

A step up leads you into the stylish and well-equipped galley kitchen, which leads out to a small patio where you can enjoy your morning coffee as you plan the day ahead.

Behind the door in the dining area are steep stairs up to two very attractive bedrooms, blending the traditional with fresh contemporary to perfection.

The ground floor bathroom lets you enjoy a long soak in the tub after cycling along the coastline, spending a day on the briny sea fishing, sunning yourself on the beach after a paddle in the sea, or perhaps after clambering over one of the three castles within 20 minutes of your cottage.

Deal’s high street, its many pubs and theatre are just a short walk away and the railway station can be reached in a couple of minutes, meaning that exploring both this wonderful town and the surrounding area couldn’t be easier!

When evening comes, why not sample the delights of one of the many restaurants or bistros that Deal has to offer?

Fish and seafood are, of course, always a speciality in a fishing town and Deal is no exception!

Smuggling was rife in Deal in days gone by so why not take a wander over the cobbles of Middle Street and imagine beneath your feet the rumble of barrels as they rolled from cellar to cellar avoiding the custom men?

After a full day of fun and frolics you can enjoy returning to this welcoming cottage, ready for another exciting day ahead.

About the location


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 Conversation 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!
