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.

Travel to Deal

Deal is pretty easy to get to. It is approximately 130 kilometres from Central London and is reached by train or car from the UK capital in 2 hours. Trains depart regularly from London Charing Cross to Deal’s main rail station, which is located right in the heart of the town.

The Whit Restaurant is highly recommended a stones throw away. The cottage was extremely well furnished, we had a lovely relaxing stay and Marie was so helpful.
