The 200-year-old Pilot’s House, in Deal, Kent has been lovingly renovated by the current owners, both of whom work in design, to blend contemporary style and cosy cottage charm. The result is a welcoming and comfortable little house, full of interesting objects and artwork. The cottage sleeps four guests and has whitewashed walls and floorboards and a subtle seaside palette of greens, blues and yellows which, along with original wood features, warms things up. It has been furnished and decorated to feel very much like a home from home. The cottage also has a gorgeous paved garden which is a real suntrap.
The charming property, which gets its name thanks to the occupation of one of its earliest residents, a ship pilot in the port of Deal in the 1840s, sleeps four, with one double bedroom and one twin, and would be perfect for a couple or a small family. Due to a steep staircase, it is probably not suitable for anyone with limited mobility. Located in the heart of Deal’s conservation area, it is only a minute’s walk to the seafront and the vibrant town centre.
