Make a holiday cottage in Deal your home away from home

Nestled between Dover and Sandwich, Deal is a lovely little coastal town with a strong maritime heritage. Considered one of the prettiest of all seaside towns in Kent, Deal holiday cottages are always in high demand with couples and families. A wonderful part of the country to explore, it’s full of historic charm, quaint streets, and striking coastal scenery. Holidaymakers primarily come here to enjoy the great outdoors and sample the local seafood. HomeAway has a large selection of holiday cottages in Deal as well as a few apartments; many are historic and have been lovingly restored by their owners. They can sleep a wide range of holiday party sizes, and come fully furnished with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Things to do

-Nature: The White Cliffs of Dover are a major attraction. Deal lies right in the heart of White Cliffs Country, making it the ideal base to explore this stunning slice of England; they really must be seen in person to appreciate their beauty. Within easy walking distance from many of the Deal holiday apartments close to the sea, visitors to Deal and Dover will have a variety of viewing options, including walking.  A stroll along the cliffs themselves is a delightful way to spend an afternoon. On a clear day it’s often possible to spot the coast of France out in the distance.

-History: Deal Castle overlooks the North Sea just steps away from the beach, and is the town’s most famous landmark.  Commissioned by Henry VIII, it's a fine example of a Tudor Castle and something that can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages.

-Activities: Fishing is a good way to spend time in Deal. The port has strong maritime roots and continues to be a favourite spot for anglers. Built in the 1950s, Deal Pier is the best spot in town for dropping a line. The waters around the pier are filled with all sorts of fish, including bass and mackerel. Fishing excursions are also available from nearby Dover and they head out into the English Channel where larger fish can be caught. Most trips last a few hours and bring visitors back to land in time for dinner.

-Museums: Deal Maritime & Local History Museum might be small, but it is an excellent place to learn about the region’s history. It is located right in the heart of town, near many Deal holiday cottages. The building dates back to 1803 and is right behind the Deal Town Hall. The museum tells the story of Deal and how it grew into a wealthy town during the Industrial Revolution thanks to its seaside location.

-Beaches: Walmer Beach provides one of the easiest and most enjoyable Things to do in Deal: a simple stroll along the beach. A road lined with beautiful 18th- and 19th-century buildings, including several Deal holiday homes, runs adjacent to the beach, but the scenery grows more rural just south of the centre of town. Lined with small pebbles, grasses, and a bit of sand, the beach is a favourite weekend spot for locals and visitors alike.

 

Weather in Deal

The climate in Deal is relatively mild compared to the rest of England. Temperatures rarely drop below freezing, even in the winter months. That being said, summer is still the best time to visit the coastal town. High temperatures can reach 20°C or more in July and August, making it perfect for that beach stroll or walk along the cliffs. Rain is possible throughout the year in Deal, but summer tends to be the region’s driest season.

There were 7 adults in our group and the house was plenty big enough for all of us. A really homely feel and well furnished and equipped. We were lucky enough to get sunshine so made use of the large peaceful garden. The house was clean and well maintained throughout and the owner was prompt with any email queries we had before our stay (and kind enough to send back a washbag one of us left there!!) Just a few minutes from Deal centre and the beach, in a nice quiet street. Perfect, would recommend and hope to be back next year :)

Our stay in this beautiful cottage was flawless, honestly the pictures do not do it justice. Stylish and lovingly decorated to a high standard with a maritime feel which is great for the location, our stay felt luxurious but also comfortably homely. The cottage wasn't just charming, it was spotlessly clean, with all the amenities you could ask for (incl. a fully equipped kitchen, a shower as well as a bath, free wifi, a cute little garden, even Sky TV!) and in such a good location, very close to the sea and the scenic beach but also within walking distance to restaurants, shops and the town centre. The lovely owners are super friendly and accommodating and even welcomed us with a cake! What made this our ideal holiday place was that dogs are allowed, a holiday without our dog just wouldn't be the same and this place is as dog friendly as the town itself. Deal is an insider tip for holidays, a town with a lot of history, independent shops (we loved the wine store and the gourmet food spots), really good restaurants and pubs and within easy reach of other must-see places in the South-East and even France (the ferry is only 20 minutes away). I cannot recommend this place anymore, but most of all this cottage, we will most definitely return! Thank you for a brilliant stay!
