  • "Wonderful facilities."

    Wonderful friendly host. Super welcome. Special gifts. I cannot speak highly enough about this property. Fully geared up for self-catering. A haven of peace and tranquility. You are in for a real treat. There is no better place to stay in this part of Kent with views you will not find anywhere else in the UK. This place will sell out quickly for the school holidays, so, well..... book quickly with a personal recommendation from me, Warm wishes, Professor Harding.

  • "Lovely flat with views across the Channel."

    Mary, the host, left us several unexpected extras which was very kind. Wi-fi very intermittent, this is the reason I have only given 4*. Lots of great walks in the area, and castles nearby. Loads of history in the area. A great base for a break.

  • "The owner was excessively kind and provided biscuits, mineral water and two bottles of Chardonnay for my arrival."

    The wine and water were double her standard gift offering I believe given I was staying for two weeks rather than one like many of her prior guests. Most generous and kind.

  • "We received a very warm welcome from Mrs Mary Gyte, with several extras waiting for us in the flat like milk, butter and biscuits which was a very kind touch."

    The flat was beautifully presented and the appliances all worked very well. The view over the channel was great, and it was good to be able to go walking over the White Cliffs from the flat without the need to use the car. Also the local bus service was very good which we used on other days to visit Dover, Sandwich and Deal. A most interesting area to explore. Andrew & Barbara King.

  • "A very generous landlady who provided extra rations and 2 small gifts."

    The view across the Channel was very good on most days and St Margaret's on the Cliff is a very pleasant village.

  • "We have come to have high expectations with holidays booked via Sykes and we were definitely not disappointed this time."

    The flat was clean, quiet, comfortable and well equipped for the two of us. It was an excellent base from which to visit many interesting locations in East Kent. The owner, who lived below the flat, was a real gem.

A delightful fitted kitchen is equipped with everything you need to feel right at home, and the fabulous bathroom combines a shower over the bath.

There is a wide hallway which lends itself to a dining area.

About the location


Dover 4 miles; Deal 5.5 miles; Folkestone 12 miles; Canterbury 18.5 miles

This delightful little spot rests along the famous and idyllic White Cliffs of Dover, on the South Foreland Heritage Coast of Kent. St Margaret's at Cliffe also contains the neighbouring village of St Margarate's Bay, both of which offer a choice of charming local amenities, you can also find the Dover Patrol Memorial, the Pines Garden Tea Room and Museum and the striking Foreland Lighthouse - all of which are worth a look around. A gap in the cliffs presents a lovely shingle beach with opportunities for rock-pooling and a pub serving food which overlooks it as well as being opposite the house previously occupied by Noel Coward and Ian Fleming. This is the point from which swimmers of the English Channel depart. Dover sits just four miles away with it's famous castle, attractive seafront, pier and marina and much more to see and do. The Kent Downs AONB is within a stone's throw for avid walkers and cyclists, while many more characterful coastal spots can be found close by; Folkestone, Ramsgate and Margate to name but a few. The unique and striking cathedral city of Canterbury is also within reach for a different experience.
