  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Pentire House."

    Beautiful location, great walking spots and not to far away from anything we needed whilst also feeling perfectly secluded. Waking up to see views every morning started the days off just right. The garden really did top everything off, our small dogs and children literally loved playing in it everyday! It’s huge and secure. We couldn’t recommend this place enough. The owners Mark and Kay were always available if needed and added some great tips and advice to make our break the best experience! 5 stars from us!!! We will be back!!

    We are so glad you enjoyed the house and we are really looking forward to you coming back. Thank you for your review. Mark & Kay Property Owner

  • "We absolutely enjoyed our one-week stay at Pentire House !"

    ! The property is located on a cliff with stunning views of the channel. The whole property is beautifully maintained and has a huge garden. Our twin boys enjoyed playing Cricket, Basketball, Table Tennis, and football in the garden. While indoors they spent hours playing foosball. The town of Kingsdown is well connected with the rest of Kent. We visited various places nearby such as Dover and Leads castle, Margate beach, Canterbury, and Spitfire museum. Almost every day we walked and cycled on the cliff walks along the coast. The nearby pub Zetland is a must-visit for its location on the beach and Namaste Dover is highly recommended if you fancy a curry. Thank you Mark and Kay for your excellent hospitality.

    Shrini, we are so glad that you and the family had a great holiday. You visited some excellent attractions in the area. Mark & Kay. Property Owner

  • "A dream house perched on a magical cliff-top location (the online photos really do not do it justice)!"

    Our (multi-generation)family all had the most wonderful and unforgettable holiday during the week we spent at Pentire House. We found the house to be furnished to an extremely tasteful and high standard with brand new furnishings and appliances. It was spotlessly clean throughout, with 4 luxurious and spacious bedrooms upstairs and a very well-appointed kitchen and multiple seating areas downstairs. There were stunning sea views from all rooms on both floors. The garden, backing on to a golf course, was huge and beautifully laid out, so both the adults and children in our group had plenty to enjoy and keep themselves busy (e.g. basketball hoop, table-tennis, garden room etc). When we wanted to venture outside the house and its grounds, there was a magnificent coastal footpath on the doorstep, the beach was just a few minutes walk away and plenty of other Kent inland/beach attractions and sights were within the reach of a short car journey. The owners, Mark and Kay, were extremely courteous and very responsive and helpful on any query or issue that we had during our stay. All in all, Pentire House was truly a 5 star-plus experience for us! We look forward to returning soon! (IS and Family)

    Thank you so much for your feedback and we are glad you and the family had a lovely holiday and enjoyed the house. We look forward to seeing you again. Mark & Kay Property Owner

The fact that everything you could possibly do to keep yourself entertain with a massive garden, basket ball ground, games, explore the area or simply chill in the comfortable and well designed house.

The property

Resting in the quiet village of Kingsdown in the county of Kent is this outstanding detached property, Pentire House.

Located in a stunning location with cliff top views over the Channel and, on a clear day, views over to the French coast.

It is situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Marine Conservation.

The property is on a private road nestled between National Trust Land and the Walmer and Kingsdown golf course.

It features spacious, light, and airy accommodation, which makes the most of the spectacular views at every opportunity.

Pentire House sleeps up to eight guests, perfect for larger groups or families looking for a generous dwelling but with enough separate areas to ensure that quiet time too.

Entering onto the private driveway, with enough space for four cars, take in the impressive architecture of the property, along with the sizeable land that surrounds it.

With two access points, you can select to enter through the grand hallway, or for convenience, through the side porch, an ideal area for walking boots, belongings, and pets.

Leading into the main living area, you’ll find the utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

There is also a separate oven, fridge and access to a WC and the back garden.

From the utility, there are steps up to an open-plan kitchen diner and family room, providing all your culinary needs as well as an area for families to eat and play together.

Heading through the bright hallway, flooded with light from the floor to ceiling windows, you’ll find the snug, a games area tucked away with table football, books, DVDs, games and jigsaws and a cloakroom with WC and basin.

Off of the hall you can either go to the sunroom, which has been set up for quiet reading or contemplation over the stunning sea views.

For the budding artists amongst you, why not use the easel and create your own Turneresque paintings (Canvas, brushes and paints not included); or head to the sitting room with plenty of reclining seating in front of an open fire, TV and DVD player.

There is also separate seating for reading and a table that can be used for games, cards, or jigsaws.

The entire ground floor of the property provides direct access to the breath-taking wrap around garden, with various patios, a play area, a considerable lawn and BBQ station.

The front allows for sitting in the sun and gazing at the coast.

Early birds can watch the sun rise over the sea and later, set over the back garden which backs onto the golf course.

There is sun all day long at some point in the grounds.

Venturing upstairs, you’ll feel the epitome of opulence with four contemporary bedrooms to choose from, all with extensive storage.

Two bedrooms, one super-king and one double have doors onto a wraparound balcony looking over the coast.

A nice place to sit and have your breakfast.

The main super-king bedroom has a balcony overlooking the sea with seating for catching the morning sun, TV, a walk-in wardrobe with access to the en-suite, comprising of a bath, two basins, walk in shower and WC.

A second super-king bedroom has an en-suite comprising of a bath, walk in shower, two basins and WC.

This bedroom has stunning views along the coastline towards Deal with its pier, and beyond.

There is a further double bedroom, which also has access to the balcony overlooking the sea.

Finally, a bedroom with twin beds and direct views to see; and a family bathroom comprising of a walk-in shower, basin and WC.

For those who want to keep in touch with their work, there is an in-built study area overlooking the back garden, golf course and surrounding countryside with 2 monitors, keyboard, mouse, and camera.

Pentire House is just a stone’s throw away from the Walmer and Kingsdown Golf Clubhouse.

Visitors are welcome to book.

Not far away are the coastal towns of Deal and Dover, providing plenty of inspiration for your itinerary, along with local shops, restaurants, pubs and three castles to meet your getaway requirements.

Making the most of your location, embark on a scenic walk along the white cliffs of Dover (noted in The Times as one of the UK's best coastal walks), past Moonraker reflecting Ian Flemings setting of the book of the same name on the cliffs here, visit the Western Heights of Dover Port, or head down to the secluded beach of Kingsdown just a short walk from the house down the cliff path.

For those wishing to experience a foreign trip, why not book yourselves onto a ferry and do a day trip to Calais, France.

Alternatively, you could drive to Folkestone to travel to Calais by the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle, or even be in Paris for lunch and return again in the same day.

Attractions include the triple spiral staircase of the Grand Shaft through the cliffs of Dover, the historic Dover Castle going back to William of Normandy in 1066 and jumping forward to the War Tunnels from the Second World War.

Feel welcomed at Deal Caslte and Walmer Castle and Gardens and Wingham Wildlife Park.

Why not take part in the various activities at Betteshanger Park, a former coal mine that now offers family fun with a play park, cycling, Boonies (physical training), Geocatching combining outdoor play with Team building and problem solving, walking, running and just taking in the wonderful nature.

If that’s all too much like hard work, why not just opt for a visit to the numerous sandy and pebble beaches that surround Kent.

Choose Pentire House as your base for a memorable break in Kent.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.
