Overview

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 and just a five minute stroll to the 2014 High Street of the Year, full of independent retailers, antiques shops, deli's, coffee shops, two large supermarkets and a Saturday market.

The Old Orchard 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; 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 leather corner sofa, TV/DVD with Freeview, feature fireplace and shutters as well as a selection of board games to keep the whole family entertained.

The second reception room has a leather chesterfield sofa providing a quiet place to read or listen to music in a bright, sunny room. A large dining table with benches and stools, an antique dresser, period fireplace and large original sash window with shutters overlooking the garden.

We have a freestanding solid wood kitchen fitted with dishwasher, electric fan oven, gas hob, microwave and fridge freezer, everything you would need for your stay. The utility room has a washing machine and tumble drier.

One of the two bathrooms is downstairs luxury and has underfloor heating, shower enclosure with 'rain' shower head, bath, toilet and sink. (There is another bathroom upstairs).

An enclosed spiral staircase (fitted with stairgates if needed) leads from the hallway to 4 large light & airy bedrooms:

One kingsize master.

One twin bedded room.

Two family bedrooms with both a double and single bed in each room.

There is also an electric pump up mattress for an additional child and a travel cot.

On the first floor next to the master bedroom and twin bedroom there is a smart fully tiled family bathroom with toilet, sink, and bath with shower over.

All bed linen & towels are provided but please provide your own towels for the beach.

We have a large lawned garden with chunky outdoor furniture and parasol. There is a parking space at the rear of the garden for one car as well as free parking on the road in front of the house and plenty more in nearby streets.

There are many places in Deal to see and things to do, of course there is Deal Castle and Cinq Ports golf course is walking distance from our house. Fishing is popular as well as coastal walks and bike and horse riding.

There are some great places to dine out: we are members of The Dining Club and our guests can use our membership (bring your own alcohol). Please see link for more information: http://www.thediningclub.net

We also like 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, children and dogs welcome.

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 few 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.

We do hope that you consider coming to Deal and The Old Orchard, if you would like any more information, please do not hesitate to ask. Short breaks are available, please enquire for rates.

Best wishes

Karen

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.

Spacious, warm and comfortable

We stayed for a rainy weekend with Italians who weren't used to the cold.. But the house was so warm and cosy, whilst being spacious enough to accommodate everyone comfortably- it was perfect! :)

Stunning house by the sea

  • 5 out of 5
Me and my family stayed at the old orchard for the weekend and we couldn't have been more impressed and pleased with the house. Located a short walk from the town and beach front it has everything you need for your stay by the sea side. It was immaculate and well maintained. Me and my family are already discussing our next visit. The owner Karen was lovely and met us at the property and we also see her as we were departing. She also kindly left us all a bottle of prosecco which I thought was a great extra touch to start the holiday. I would recommend this house to family and friends.

Beautiful house in Deal

  • 5 out of 5
We staid one week at this lovely house. We were two families with five children and the house had a very good size for all of us. Good sized common spaces, huge rooms with confortable beds and two complete bathrooms.
Karen was very friendly and helpful. Everything was perfect at the house.
I would recomend this house to anyone visiting Deal.

Beautiful house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 out of 5
Absolutely gorgeous house with everything you'd ever need to enjoy a trip to the Kent coast.

There was no fighting over bedrooms as they were all stunning. The sitting room was comfortable with lots of seating and a fire that would be fabulous for winter stays. The dining room was a lovely sociable room for meal times when we didn't eat outside in the sunny garden. Very well equipped kitchen and a nice surprise in the fridge.

The owner was lovely and made sure we felt very welcome. I arrived with a car-sickened toddler in my arms and she helped me settle her and do an immediate load of laundry!

Great place for exploring the coast, but Deal itself has everything you could need for a great holiday. Restaurant, beach and shops all an easy walk.

I would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: I'm really pleased that you and family/friends had a good time; we've tried really hard to make it a real home from home by making sure that you have everything you need to make your stay hassle free, especially when there for a short break, you just want to get on and enjoy yourselves!

Car: not necessary

Once a 17th century smuggler's hideaway, Deal is now an unspoilt laid back seaside resort, full of history with it's conservation area, quaint fisherman's cottages, castles, Georgian seafront with promenade and coastal walks. Yet only 90 miles from London (direct trains available) and 20 miles to France, the coastline can be seen on a clear day.

The Old Orchard is within easy walking distance of the beach (just 250 meters) and a 2 minute walk to the high street full of independent retailers and twice weekly market offering fresh local produce. There are many cafes, restaurants and bars to enjoy, as well as vintage/antique shops and deli's.

Ideal for cycling into historic Sandwich (4 miles away) and along the coastal paths to see the famous white cliffs, there are golf courses in abundance (Royal St Georges, Cinque Ports and Princes to name but a few), as well as fishing and sailing.

An ideal base to explore all that Kent has to offer; historic Canterbury can be reached easily by either car or rail, Dover is only 15 minutes away, ideal for short trips across to France by ferry, or 30 minutes to the Eurotunnel at Folkestone.

Broadstairs (home to Charles Dickens) and Whitstable (famous for it's oysters) are both half an hour away by car. Art lovers could visit the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery in Margate, or try Folkestone for it's smaller galleries.

Equally, you could consider leaving all forms of transport behind and just relax and enjoy all that Deal has to offer.
