Overview

About the property

This quaint and charming cottage is found in the centre of Walmer overlooking the allotments with their pretty patchwork of flowers and vegetables. A traditional cottage with a contemporary interior, it has a bright and airy feel with two bedrooms and a gravelled garden with a patio and is only a few minutes' walk from the seafront and local shops and cafes. There is plenty to explore with Deal castle close by and Walmer Castle just a short walk. Bring your bikes and take the coastal trail along the seafront to Kingsdown where you can enjoy a spot of lunch at the pub on the beach The Zetland Arms. Or head east towards Sandwich Bay and cycle the old coast road to visit this perfectly preserved medieval market town.

Lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a weekend in this lovely cottage. It is very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. It had everything we needed.

The location is perfect too - right near the beach. We walked to St Margaret's Bay one day and Sandwich the next. So nice not to use the car! Plenty of good shops, restaurants and pubs within walking distance.

Communication with Jayana was excellent and she was very helpful. Thank you.

We will be back!

Lovely house, great stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely , spotlessly clean and looked exactly as the photos . We only went for a weekend but had a great time. Had the best chinese chicken curry I have had in a long time from the local takeaway .The only minus was the text and photo asking what was on a flannel .It was makeup I felt that was rude and made me uncomfotable. Which was a shame .

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for choosing The Popinjay. I only politely asked about the stains on the bedlinen and towels to enable me to understand how best to tackle them. Sincere apologies if that made you feel uncomfortable. I am pleased you liked the stay and hope you come back to The Popinjay soon.

Charming

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at this super cosy cottage to a lovely bottle of wine and welcome note from the owner.

Fresh milk and eggs in the fridge was another lovely touch.

Parking is easy, just outside in the street, overlooking the lovely allotments.The cottage is well equipped for self catering and bedding and towels are of high quality.

There is a cute little costal garden with furniture, leading out from the lovely kitchen area.

Just a couple of minutes walk will take you to the seafront.

This was our first trip to Deal and certainly won't be our last, there's so much to do on your doorstep, Castles to explore, the white cliffs of Dover, if only we had more time, but it's a great excuse to return to the Popinjay and we can't wait to return.

Clean, well equipped, good location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay at the Popinjay. Situated in a quiet street, just one block away from the seashore. A 10 min walk to the centre of Deal. Good beds and an extremely well equipped kitchen, you name it, it's there, even sharp kitchenknives, very rare in holydayhomes. Nice little outside sitting area with BBQ.

Contact was fast and friendly. We struggled a bit with the doorlock, but I guess that was because we're not used to this kind of locks in Belgium.

The only remark I can give is the size of the dining table. It is in the kitchen tucked away in the corner. We were 2, so that was not a problem, but if you're 4, the kitchen will get very cramped.

But in general shurely can recommend.
