Church House, a charming Georgian house that has featured in 25 Beautiful Homes. It offers comfortable and stylish accommodation that has real period charm and character. Church House is a wonderful base for holidays or short breaks at anytime of the year. Have an exhilarating winter walk on the beach and come home to a log fire or enjoy outdoors dining in the pretty walled garden during the warmer weather. Situated in historic Walmer, it is within a short stroll of Walmer Castle and the beach. Lovely Deal is just minutes away. Walmer and Deal are unspoilt seaside towns with attractive promenades, interesting streets and lots to discover. Ideally located for walks and cycles into historic Deal and Sandwich and for the golf at Royal St George's. Canterbury can be easily reached by car or rail . It is close to the ferry port of Dover and makes an ideal base for short trips to France. Close to many of the wonderful historic places of interest that Kent has to offer

-I would like to say what a lovely house you have there - beautifully decorated, warm, spacious and comfortable. We all had a lovely time. Because of the bad weather we stayed indoors most of the time and it was a pleasure to do so, particularly with the fire blazing in the drawing room. Thank you for the hamper, the hand wash and toiletries - these things are so helpful.

We just wanted to thank you so very much for such a lovely stay at Church House last week. Thank you also for the wonderful hamper of food and drink (and Easter Eggs!!) you left for us - very generous!
We all loved the house and enjoyed a few fires in the evenings - overall we were very lucky with the weather and had some lovely days out.

Our holiday in your fabulous house was everything we could have hoped. We wanted for absolutely nothing and we found the house friendly and comfortable. Thank you so much for the very, very generous gift basket - the best we have ever experienced (and we have been on many self catering holidays over the years). This, and the lovely flowers, made us feel extremely welcome. How you managed to provide such excellent weather is a mystery to us all!

Walmer and Deal are unspoilt and charming seaside towns with beautiful architecture and bags of character. There is much to interest the discerning shopper in Deal with its small boutiques set in a stunning Georgian conservation area that connects the town centre to the beach and pier. There is also a good selection of restaurants and eating places and the pace of life is distinctly relaxed.
You can walk or cycle safely along the beach promenade from Walmer to historic Sandwich and there are train connections from Walmer and Deal stations to Canterbury, Broadstairs and the other seaside towns on the Kent coast. Margate with its funfair and attractions is half an hour's drive away and you can be in France for a day trip either by ferry from Dover or the tunnel link from Folkestone in no time at all. The house is located in the Upper Walmer Conservation area just off the Dover Road.
