Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Deal - The Old Orchard
Sleeps 10, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, off street parking, large garden.
Short/long breaks are available - please enquire for rates (2 nights from £300 depending on time of year).
The Old Orchard is a two minute walk to the beach (we can just about get a glimpse of the sea from our top front bedroom!) and just a five minute stroll to the 2014 High Street of the Year.
It is an ideal home from home, full of period charm to stay in all year round; bracing walks along the beautiful coastline in winter or al fresco dining in the garden in the summer.
We have tried to maintain a cosy home-like feeling; with original pine floorboards, panelling and feature fireplaces throughout as well as bringing up to date with wireless broadband and bluetooth speaker to listen to your own music.
There is a living room with plenty of seating including a comfy corner sofa, TV/DVD with Freeview, feature fireplace and shutters as well as a selection of board games to keep the whole family occupied.
The spacious dining room has large table with benches and stools, an antique dresser, large original sash window overlooking the garden and a period fireplace.
We have a freestanding solid wood kitchen fitted with gas oven, gas hob, microwave and fridge freezer, everything you would need for your stay. The utility room has a washing machine and tumble drier and leads onto a luxury bathroom with underfloor heating and 'rain' shower head. (There is another bathroom upstairs).
An enclosed spiral staircase (fitted with stairgates if needed) leads from the hallway to 4 generous light & airy bedrooms (one kingsize master, one twin bedded room, and two bedrooms with a double and single bed in each plus travel cot) and a smart fully tiled family bathroom. All bed linen & towels are provided.
We have a large lawned garden with a suntrapped, shingled seating area, chunky outdoor furniture and parasol. There is a parking space at the rear of the garden as well as parking on the road to the front of the house and in surrounding streets.
There are many places in Deal to relax/eat out - we are members of The Dining Club and our guests can use our membership to dine there. Please see link for more information: http://www.thediningclub.net/
We can also recommend The Boathouse (part of the Royal Hotel) which has a verrandah facing straight onto the beach near the pier - it's very family friendly, big squashy leather sofas and great pub food.
There's also the King's Head, a traditional English pub, great pub food and plenty of outdoor seating to the front with umbrellas, great atmosphere.
Of course these are just a couple of places, there are many more ......
If you enjoy organic produce there is The Allotment, an organic foodshop which also has a cafe out at the back serving only organic food.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We would like to let you know that we had a really good time at The old orchard. Deal and surroundings were a discovery for us. We actually decided to visit Kent again. We didn’t have time enough for the castles.
We also found the house marvelous. We were impressed with the warm style and the authenticity, and yet, a lot of comfort.
