    We were greeted with a warm welcome and shown around so we knew how everything worked. Tea, coffee, milk and biscuits were a nice touch, as was having salt, pepper and a few other bits in supply. Parking is in the road on a first come first basis, but we didn't find this a problem and always got a space at varying times of the day. Inside the house you feel like giants with the quaint low ceilings - but don't worry - there is no banging of heads or feeling like the place is small. On the contrary it feels very spacious, there is plenty of room, and everything was so clean, warm and cozy - it was a great place to come home to after some very long walks. We were not lucky with the weather the first three days, but to be honest, it was just lovely coming back to the cottage after dodging the rain in the morning, sitting on the landing room reading the Sunday papers, and hunkering down for the evening. The beds were really comfortable, and the utility area was very handy for walking boots and wet coats. In warmer weather the outside seating area would have been super. We loved sitting around the table of an evening playing scrabble with a glass of wine, but you are only a short walk away from the centre of Deal if you are after eating out in the many lovely bars and restaurants. The fish and chip shop around the corner is a must, and the staff are very friendly. Deal is a really good place to stay; it’s a good base, but is also full of good stuff to see and do. We would definitely recommend The Old Tuck Shop.

The property

A former sweet shop situated in the seaside streets of Walmer in Deal, renovated to a standard of quality and ideally located for touring the vibrant town and beyond.

Plan a peaceful getaway for two, or bring your friends along to make the most of this homely accommodation, perfect all-year-round.

Take a moment to admire the colourful exterior before stepping inside to be at one with the heart-warming interior.

The lounge boasts comfortable seating and a woodburner; an ideal setup to relax from morning through to evening with your loved ones.

A well-equipped kitchen lies adjacent, with facilities bordering two sides of the room, leading over to a utility area and a cloakroom.

The next floor houses a king-size bedroom, close to a family bathroom that is complete to a lovely standard.

If you are looking for some quiet time, a seating area lies on the landing, ideal for reading a good book, or cosying up on the sofa bed.

A wonderful aspect of this cottage is the upper floor bedroom tucked away within the eaves and accessed via a spiral staircase.

Elevated by a vaulted ceiling and a Velux window, you can simply relax and admire the stars as the night closes in.

Enjoy the small courtyard patio outside, a perfect sun trap and a nice spot for a glass of wine come afternoon.

There is also a rear gate for access to the utility area, after a fun-filled day at the beach, which is only a couple of minutes away.

Deal is an ideal location for families and friends looking to pursue outdoor activities or simply laze around enjoying the sea air.

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 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!
