Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Kent - 'Somerley' 2 Nelson Street

3 bedroom house sleeps 5, easy walking distance to the beach and town centre

'Somerley' is a delightful spacious home located in a quiet road in Deal's historic conservation area and is a few minutes walk from the sea and the centre of Deal. Deal high street was voted High Street of the year for 2013 by the Daily Telegraph. The house is a short drive from excellent golf courses and the bus and train stations are both within walking distance. London and Canterbury are within easy reach by road and rail. Deal is conveniently located for day trips to France.

The house was built in the early 1800’s and retains much of its original character. The sitting room and dining room have wood panelled walls and attractive gas fires. There is comfortable seating and a choice of D.V.D's to watch on the flat screen T.V. Guests are welcome to use the books and games in the house.

The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you might need for your visit.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor, one double, a twin and a single. In addition to the first floor bathroom, the single room is fitted with a sink. There is a private courtyard garden with a restful water feature, which offers a lovely space to sit outside and enjoy summer evenings and even have a BBQ.

The games room in the cellar is a fun place for adults and children alike, especially if the weather is not so good.

On your arrival there will be a welcome pack to help you settle into your home away from home.

About Mrs Wendy Fenwick

We have lived in the area since 2000 and we love being by the sea and yet in a town at the same time. Our children have grown up in a safe delightful place which is dear to all of us.

Why Mrs Wendy Fenwick chose Kent

I have always admired the pretty houses in Deal, particularly in the Conservation area. We love our house because it has character and charm and it is in the heart of a thriving town and yet in a peaceful spot.

What makes this house unique

Many of our guests comment on how well equipped the house is. We really do try to provide everything anyone could want on holiday and to make the house as welcoming as possible. We love our house and we want our guests to feel that it is theirs during their stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed a week in 2 Nelson Street. It is a very comfortable place to stay and better equipped than any house we have ever rented.

Convenient, well kept house.

  • 5 of 5

Nice house on a very quiet street. Superb kitchen and useful room in the cellar with games (though with steep stairs, mind your head going down). Close to the beach, centre of town, and a Sainsburys so no need to drive around. We had a lovely time visiting nearby towns and just walking on the beach.

Beautiful house with everything you would need

  • 5 of 5

Myself, husband and 3 children have just come home from a lovely stay at this house. Cannot fault it in any way.

It has lots of character and charm and the kitchen probably has more utensils than my own ! Has everything you would need to make a stay here comfortable.

The children loved the Lego and toys and watched a couple of the DVDs too. They also loved playing in the basement room.

We had a slight problem with a tap on one day but I called the housekeeper and she was fantastic and sorted a plumber to come round and fix in within a couple of hours so this wasn't a problem at all. I was impressed with how quickly it was sorted.

Deal is a very pretty seaside town with lots of quaint independent shops and tea rooms. The house is within easy walking distance to the high street so this was very convenient.

Would definitely recommend to friends/family !

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This lovely property is perfectly located for the beach, restaurants and shopping in Deal as all are within walking distance. It's a real home from home with the best equipped kitchen we've ever had in a rental property, even the knives were good. Very clean and comfortable and the owner seemed to really care that we had a good stay, we would definitely recommend, a real gem.

Quite Charming

  • 5 of 5

On arrival the house looked and felt clean and well cared for. It was simply, but tastefully, decorated with some nice little touches to make us feel at home. The courtyard is really pretty and a lovely sheltered area to be outside. It was so comfortable and for 2 of us very spacious and could easily accommodate the full number without feeling the least bit cramped and everything we might have needed was provided. It is not far to the French crossings so ideal if you want a day or two in France. Deal is a delightful town with a 'Good Food Guide" category 2 restaurant ( Vittals & Co) and individual boutiques, castles and lots of other things to do. Highly recommended.

Lovely holiday in Deal

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay in this property that had everything needed for a relaxing stay. The courtyard garden with its water feature and barbecue were a lovely place to chill in the evening.The beach just a stroll away as well as the high street. It was a lovely base to explore all the other areas of Kent and I would recommend staying here to friends and family.

Car: not necessary

Deal is an historic market town which has its own castle built for King Henry 8th within walking distance and further castles near by at Walmer, Dover and Sandwich. It has endless winding streets which have many quaint buildings and the area is steeped in smuggling lore. To visit Deal is to step back in time and yet it also offers all the amenities of a modern town, excellent restaurants and pubs plus a wide range of shops and a huge choice of outdoor activities.

Deal pier has won awards for the great fishing it offers and the newly renovated pier end restaurant offers customers the chance to sit and enjoy their meal looking over the sea. There are spectacular walks to be taken along the sea front and up the cliffs towards St Margaret's and Dover. Watersports are available in Deal, sailing, rowing and windsurfing are very popular. The Telegraph has just voted Deal No 1 in Top Spots To Lay Your Towel. The long beach is rarely busy and is a wonderful place from which to swim and paddle.
