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.

He showed us around the house and made us feel very welcome. The house was perfect for our long weekend stay. Everything was there and more, the milk etc was a nice touch. The house was lovely and clean and very comfortable. It's situation is ideal for Deal town with its great pubs, restaurants and nearby attractions. We would definitely recommend this property

We visited 3 castles during our stay - Deal and Walmer (a must) on foot and Dover by car. At Dover we also enjoyed a beautiful walk along the cliffs from the White Cliff Visitor Centre (Nat Trust) along to the South Foreland Lighthouse. Canterbury was also easily accessed via a short drive and a Park & Ride into the city with a visit to the marvellous Cathedral which was well worth a visit. We were fortunate to enjoy glorious weather for most of the fortnight which helped and overall we had a really enjoyable stay in an excellent flat.

The house was very well eqipped, clean, spacious, cosy and nicely restored. We cycled along the coast to the White Cliffs and to Sandwich, watched seals at the mouth of the Great Stour (on a boat trip from Sandwich) rode to Margate by train (incl. our bikes), cycling on the Isle of Thanet all day long, visited the South Forland Lighthouse and Fan Bay Shelter by car. The weather was so sunny and warm that we could have breakfast on a bench opposite the house at the beach and my wife could go swimming in the sea straight from the house. And every evening we walked on the pier. We will come back some day.
