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:

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.

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.

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.
