Great service from Keepers Cottages and an amazing flat. Our jaws dropped when we walked in, and the terrace is fantastic - sunny yet somehow sheltered from the Deal nor'easterly! And how lovely to be lulled to sleep by the waves washing on the beach. We will be booking again - although this review will probably (quite rightly) make the competition even stiffer! Thanks again to Camilla and Team.
This is a very sweet cottage, in a very convenient spot a couple of mins from the beach. The owners made a big effort to ensure it was clean, beautifully decorated and sparkling in the sunshine. The beds are very comfy, there is a lovely shady courtyard garden (with deckchairs) and a well equipped kitchen with extra touches like different teas and a welcome hamper. The nautical decorations add to the holiday atmosphere. Sandgate is lovely with several nice places to eat and takeaway drinks from the pub to drink on the front. Parking is not immediately on site but relatively easy to find. Lots ...more
Lovely cottage recently very tastefully refurbished. We have stayed in many cottages over the years and we have to say this is the best. So many of them are furnished with worn out furniture and quite obviously not with any thought of their guests comforts. But, the owner of this cottage has thought things out and provided their guests with good quality fittings and such nice surroundings. Unfortunately, they couldn’t control the weather and it was bitterly cold, so we couldn’t take advantage of the close proximity of the beach, and due to lockdown we couldn’t take advantage of the clo...more
We loved everything about this cottage. It was extremely comfortable with everything we could possibly need and beautifully and imaginatively furnished. It actually felt like home from the minute we walked in. Although we had some rain we were able to sit outside and watch the moorhens on the pond and the dawn chorus was fabulous. There are many good walks from the front door and a short walk up to the village which has a good pub and many useful shops. Highly recommended.
Unfortunately I forgot to leave feedback at the property. The house was amazing, clean, bright and just beautiful inside and out! I seriously did not want to leave! I love Deal and will certainly rebook for next year.
My husband looked forward to going to Deal and staying in Tuggers we were not disappointed. The property is absolutely beautiful. Every piece has been so well thought out and tastefully put together. Guests are treated to a unique design experience and a wonderful space. It was clean, comfortable and spacious, including a delightful private garden. The owners were available via mobile to assist and answer any questions we had, which was much appreciated. The property is moments away from Kingsdown beach and it is ideal for a quiet get away. Deal is a 40 minute walk away and many an eveni...more
Perfect central location to Sandwich town centre. Peaceful and homely - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend.
We stayed for approximately 3 months whilst we waited for our house purchase to complete, so it wasn't necessarily the conventional 'holiday' stay. That being said we feel our extended time within the house puts us in a good position to review for future guests. The owners Jane and Jeremy could not have been more generous, kind and attentive whilst we stayed there. We had a very minor issue with the oven during our extended stay and they sent an emergency builder out that same evening to fix it for us. If only all landlords/owners were the same. The house itself is a beautiful Georgian...more
We were so lucky to grab a week at The Heights courtesy of Keepers Cottages. The house was perfect in every way, beautifully presented, and extremely welcoming. A great bolt hole for exploring the Kent coast and just a few minutes stroll from the beach & a couple of local pubs in Kingstown Village (my fave was The Rising Sun). Deal is a 5 minute drive away (or about an hours walk along the coastal path). Keepers handled the booking perfectly too. We couldn’t have had a better experience with the house or the arrangements. 10/10 Thank you so much - we’ll be back.
We had a wonderful stay at The Admiral Penn. The house has been beautifully converted into a very high spec holiday house. Each room has an enormous bed with lovely bedding and a fabulous bathroom with underfloor heating. The kitchen and dining room are very well equipped and spacious. The jewel in its crown is the cinema room. A fantastic space, particularly if you are staying with teenagers! Deal itself is a lovely town with lots of nice restaurants and pubs.
This is the second time we’ve stayed in ‘The Loft’ in Deal, it’s such a tranquil place to chill and relax with the one you love..
We have stayed in The Artists House 4 times and each time has been brilliant. We love the light and space, plus all of Steve's colourful paintings. The kitchen area is small but has everything we need. We never watch much TV there as there are so many interesting books to read. The bed is extremely comfortable with a warm natural duvet and pillows. It is quiet and yet just a few minutes from everything, the beach, the High Street with all it's great shops and good restaurants. Whatever the weather we enjoy being in Deal and staying at The Artists House.
We are 2 families of 3, both with teenage daughters. We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely modern but comfortable house. It had everything little thing you could think of and was only a 10 minute walk from the seafront. The owners and their communication was great. If we were going to come back to Deal we would absolutely stay in this house again.
Great location, very nice cottage. Clean and charming. Great access to the beach and surrounding area for walking, cycling and golf. Did not visit all the many pubs in Deal, but tried really hard!
Sarah is a great host and The Old Bakehouse is by far the cleanest holiday let I have stayed in and is in an Ideal location for a coastal break.
All good Excellent place to stay and an excellent company to rent a holiday cottage from. Highly recommended
The house was perfect for our needs - very comfortable, plenty of room, lovely light rooms and a fab sunny terrace. Easy to walk into Deal, especially along the coastal path, beautiful views from three bedrooms and the sitting room. The sun trap terrace was roomy and used a lot. Lovely coffee spots close by, good anD interesting High Street, very good restaurants. We would stay again!
We had a wonderful week. The property was in excellent condition and beautifully designed. Great location to the town centre and the beach, though on road parking was a bit tricky at peak times. A great base for exploring the local areas of Deal, Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Margate. Would highly recommend.
Had a fantastic stay in the Shieling. It was beautifully decorated and really comfortable. Everything we needed was there. The garden was a lovely addition and a great size. Very comfortable beds! Location is amazing - a stones throw from the beach and round the corner from the pub. Coastal walks on the doorstep and a very quick and easy cycle to Deal. Had a fantastic holiday and will definitely be back.
Very comfortable. Enjoyed the quirky garden. Great for 2 singles as super double beds in both rooms. Very convenient to have a car parking at the house.
Whilst the exterior of the property is not particularly inviting, being a typical seaside semi next to a launderette, once inside, the immediate impression is of a well presented flat for holiday use. We found the fixtures and fittings, furnishings and equipment to be of a good quality and high standard throughout, so we had a comfortable stay. We have no hesitation in recommending this for all age groups. We had our dog with us as well.
Very well equipped house and very spacious together with great location. Keepers Cottage manage their properties very professionally and this is our third or fourth booking with no issues at all. Lots of clean linen and towels etc with some free breakfast cereals when you arrive. Would definitely recommend and we shall be making further bookings - well done to keepers Cottages
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this beautifully designed house, it was comfortable, spotlessly clean and the communications were brilliant too. We loved the unique woodburner arrangement and the fabulous kitchen diner. The bed was super comfortable and the bathroom was beautiful and a pleasure to use. We found everything we wanted to cook evening meals as still couldn't eat in restaurants. The house is just round the corner from the market and a very short stroll to the beach. Just perfect, thank you!
Very comfortable and a lovely position on a small river. It was immaculate with everything new and they seemed to thought of everything that you might need. Diane and Ian were excellent hosts. However, it is small and space is tight which for some larger and less agile people could prove to be challenging
Excellent location for a stay in Deal, very close to all the facilities in Deal. Close to both High street and beach
Bowden Lodge was excellent. We were a family aged from 1-70 and all loved it.everything we could possibly think of was provided. The swimming pool was an ideal temperature but was a little bit grubby near the steps. The barbecue was also in need of a good clean. But these pointers did not detract from the wonderful time we had. This was our second visit and no doubt there will be a third
The Filmer cottage is a small easy to leave tiny house. Located close to the seashore with is 3 bedrooms and 2 toilets it's convenient.
17 Farrier Street is in a brilliant location, close to both beach and High Street. The house is very comfortable, homely but stylish, and the owner provides some nice welcoming touches like a lovely bottle of wine and upmarket toiletries in all the bathrooms. We would definitely stay here again.
We stayed here as a family, the house was decorated beautifully, it was very clean, beds were comfortable and it was very centrally located.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would come back. Very comfortable and lovely location. Really good book of clear instructions. Sea gulls are noisy (!!) so if you could stop that next time that would be great! Haha ;) It was a truly wonderful stay. Thank you
We had a great stay in The Writers Cottage. Perfect for 4 plus dog. The garden was such a luxury in the centre of Deal and lovely to be able to walk to the restaurants and beach so easily. The cottage had everything we needed, with lovely touches around the place. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
We loved staying in Captain's Cottage, Deal. The house was very well equipped, clean and tidy - and it felt really homely. We stayed with our children and Camilla and the team provided excellent instructions and information on the local area. Parking was a bit of a juggle as the road has restricted parking, but it certainly didn't spoil the holiday - just worth noting if you need car access close by. I would definitely recommend using Keepers Cottages and hope to be paying another visit to this lovely part of the world.
The cottage is a wonderful haven, the charming front garden is an invitation into the welcoming, cosy space within. The rooms all flow through comfortably and the decor has a great beach vibe. The kitchen is well equipped and the shower is great. The garden is sunny with perfect shady spots and easy access for bikes to be stored at the rear. Fantastic to be able to go straight onto beach pretty much from both rear and front gardens. The sofas do not offer the best comfort and the dining area is a bit dark, particularly in Winter. We resolved this by putting a side lamp in the far corner ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Lighthouse. It was very well equipped with a lot of thoughtful touches. I ma hoping for a return visit next year.
Great flat and great location but gets hot in sunny weather as it's a top floor flat. Great flat and great location but gets hot in sunny weather as it's a top floor flat
This is a beautiful, well maintained and a very high standard of fixtures, fittings and houseware. Might be an issue if you are tall due to low ceilings/doorways and a very steep winding stairway. However that said when booking such an old property that should be expected. Wonderful stay here and in Deal. Its not lost its charm. Well done everyone.
The house is in a good location in Deal, close to the High Street and beach but in a quiet street where the noisiest thing you will hear is seagulls. The back garden is a great little sun trap and very secure for dogs. The house is very trendy and sometimes it felt as though style had been put ahead of function or comfort, some things looked good but didn't work terribly well. For a couple, as long as you aren't too big, the house makes a great base. But, for four people the house would be very cramped.
We really enjoyed our stay in Deal. We loved the house and the garden. It has been very carefully designed and very attractive. We were only 3 minutes from the sea front. The town was at hand with everything we needed. Only downside for us, being senior citizens, was the need to be careful with the steps between the bedrooms and the upstairs bathroom ( not ideal for anyone with any mobility issues).
The location of the property on the beach front and close to the towns amenities is great. The property is on four floors with steep stairs that would not suit everyone. The ground floor which has a well fitted kitchen, and a dining/games room smelled musty. The sitting room on the first floor has the most uncomfortable furniture. The first floor double bedroom has an en suite toilet/shower room that is so small it’s difficult to manoeuvre in and out of the shower. The main bedroom on the second floor has a fabulous view of the sea. The main bathroom is large and well appointed. What let this ...more
Very nice boldly painted cottage with big bird theme! Comfortable master bedroom with rather small en-suite. Two other bedrooms, one only really suitable for children. Main bathroom downstairs could be inconvenient to some renters. Exceptional kitchen with range cooker, dishwasher would be nice but my husband was happy washing up! No recycling information on show on notice board in the kitchen. Weather was appalling but outside patio very welcome. Stairs were very steep if not mobile, bit of an effort for our 13 year old dog! Lovely location close to the beach. Parking information ver...more
A charming house in a great location by the beach and the main drag. Keepers were a delight to deal with, but unfortunately the same cannot be said for the owner of the house who manages the property. There were quite a few minor issues, which was surprising giving the overall cost of the booking. I will probably look at booking a different property in Deal through Keepers in the future.
The external building is dilapidated to be honest which is a shame because it is an inaccurate introduction to the wonderfully cosy apartment you will find inside. There is a large table for dining/work space, a very comfortable couch and a few board games. The heat settings in the house are great as well. The main room has a partition that has an addiitonal bunk bed that makes it a four sleeper. There is no second bedroom. The building is on the seafront of a very still town - great for walks and quiet days indoors.
Loved the stay at Stable Cottage, location was ideal nice and quiet (apart from when Gardener was about at 8am in the morning with his noisy machinery). Big garden. Shops are either 5 min drive into Sandwich or Deal but the road is down country lanes and very narrow. Ideal location for visiting south Kent . There were old leaflets in the drawers advising of local attractions but they seem to date from 2014 upwards - there was no folder which normally advise of nearest places like vets, doctors etc normally establishments have this info. WIFI was good The cottage was clean and beds were com...more
