About the property

Abbots Cliff House - a cottage that sleeps 10 guests in 5 bedrooms

Arguably the closest house in Britain to France and the rest of the world!

Abbots Cliff House offers a new level of wow factor; with one of the most incredible views to behold, regal grandeur and sheer decadence from a modern day renovation retaining all the original period features and high ceilings, magnificent stair case, and light filled rooms with floor to ceiling windows.

On arrival guests are welcomed through into a grand hallway, which provides a taste of what is yet to come in all aspects of this luxurious stately villa. The ample rooms and stunning aspect make the house ideal for a special occasion and gatherings.

The property has a state of the art kitchen with breakfast table; and stunning views beyond the decked patio through bi-folding doors that brings the outdoors in.

The Master suite is where you will find possibly the best seat in the house, although there are many with the most amazing views to France.

Should you be able to pull yourself away from the house that has it all, with only the white picket fencing between you and glorious cliff walks leading down to the sandy beach, you will be forgiven for stopping by at the local English pub for an afternoon glass of wine or Sunday lunch.

Abbots Cliff House is a superb family sized home with ample space, it offers that extra touch of class, perfect for those who enjoy staggering hill top heights and feel truly on top of the world!

Beautiful house, beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

Ten of us checked in to celebrate a special birthday and we were blown away by the lovely bedrooms and stunning views. We couldn't be welcomed in person but a friendly note was left for us with a bottle of wine. The weather wasn't kind to us but it just made the views more interesting although the cliff path walks were too muddy and slippery to walk far on. The hot tub was an optional extra which we decided against due to the weather forecast but I'm sure it will be delightful in warmer months if somewhat expensive.

Practical issues: Trying to cook a breakfast for ten with one basic frying pan and a couple of saucepans was a bit tricky, both oven grills also had to be used. A house that sleeps ten guests in luxury should also seat ten guests comfortably. The dining table needed 2 extra chairs provided and was a bit too cosy to lay out formally for an event. The kitchen table only seats 6.

I would definitely stay here again and would love to do so in the Summer to make use of the gas fired BBQ and outdoor space. Highly recommend staying here.

Folkestone is a lovely little town too with some lovely new bars and restaurant along the Harbour Arm.

Abbots Cliff House is situated on the most dramatic of cliff top locations in Capel-Le-Ferne, making it arguably one of most beautiful parts in Kent. The house is sandwiched between Dover and Folkestone, you will never be short things to keep you busy including walking the Saxon Shore Way. Popular eateries include Sandbanks at East Cliff by the Warren and Folkestone's award winning restaurant Rock Salt. Those who love a little bit of the seaside can also pick up the catch of the day from the Fish market at the quayside.
