‘Although I never met Claire in person, we felt incredibly welcome in her seaside cottage. Everything from the communication before we arrived to the house information book filled with great suggestions of things to do made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. The cottage is beautiful and very cozy, and the surrounding neighbourhood of Deal is charming. Very highly recommended!’

‘Claire is a great and considerate host, and her lovely cottage offered us everything we needed and more. It’s such a lovely location, minutes from the beach and the high street, and allowed me to commute easily to both Margate and Folkestone for work. Our 2-year-old daughter loved the house – especially the toy cupboard. Deal is a really nice place to stay for a few days or probably weeks – plenty to do (and eat and drink!).’

‘Great cottage in a great location. Cottage is exactly as described and very comfortable, stylish and welcoming. Comfy beds and well equipped kitchen. A few minutes walk from the train station, beach and high street that has loads to see, do and buy. We love Deal and have visited a few times now. This accommodation was perfect for the trip. Host was quick to respond and very accommodating. Definitely recommend staying here.’

‘Claire’s cottage was an absolutely fantastic retreat. This cottage has a very relaxed vibe and was super homely. We were a party of 4 adults and couldn’t fault the cottage. The beds were very comfortable with lovely crisp clean linen and towels provided. When we arrived we were greeted by fresh flowers and a yummy chocolate cake which we devoured (the cake not the flowers!) A huge family sized bathroom and powerful shower completed the inside. We also used the outside courtyard for early morning coffees and supper. A quiet location which was just what the doctor ordered but a short five minute walk to all the hustle and bustle of the town. Although we only had a weekend in Claire’s cottage it truly felt like a proper break away. Claire is a very generous host, kindly letting us check out later on our departure date as the weather was scorchio, which was very much appreciated! I highly recommend this cottage and we will be rebooking later in the year. Don’t think about going to Deal, do it!!’

‘Just had a lovely weekend at Claire’s house in deal. The house was lovely and close to sea. It was warm, well equipped and decorated beautifully . Loved all the extras she added, like toys, scooters, dishwasher tablets, travel Cot, high chair, milk, chocolates, cake and many more. These things always makes your stay more special and relaxing esp with two small children. Claire was a lovely host, very accommodating with early and late check out and coming to our rescue when we lost our keys. Thank you for a lovely stay we will definitely be back.’

‘Beautiful pad. Totally perfect for our weekend away. Cosy, classy and snug. Great shower, comfy beds, clean and basically exactly as we’d hoped. Light but private windows, quiet street. Cute little courtyard (not that we used it but nice to look out at when doing the washing up). Dog-friendly, great shower, radio and hairdryer and basic cooking things (oil etc) provided along with fresh flowers in the living room which I thought was a really nice touch, made us feel truly welcome… it’s basically a perfect weekender. You’ll love it. Go stay. And thanks Claire for answering all our questions before arrival – Deal’s a great little spot (definitely go to the French wine bar and neighbouring Deli for lunch/wine)!x’

‘Loved our stay here last weekend!! The house was really conveniently situated in Deal. Everything you need for a short or long stay and Claire was so helpful suggesting places to eat and drink.’

‘Lovely, welcoming property which is great for a family with kids (we have three), with lots of extras such as toys and DVDs. The house is well located in Deal, close to the high street and only a few streets back from the beach.’

‘We loved Claire’s cottage – extremely comfortable and clean, homely and styled beautifully. We felt relaxed straight away, and our four year old really enjoyed playing with all the toys and reading the lovely children’s books, so much so that for our three night stay he didn’t even break into the stash of toys he’d brought with him. The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable and our son loved sleeping in the smaller room. The kitchen was well equipped (and thank you so much for the wine!), and there are several shops in very close walking distance. Perfect for a family with young children (we have a four year old and a three month old). Thank you Claire!’

Cosy and snug little cottage that is comfortable for two adults with two children. We especially loved Claire’s attention to detail. Everything was exactly as described online and spotlessly clean. Pains au chocolat, apple juice and milk in the fridge made us feel very welcome and were highly appreciated. A treasure in Deal!

“We have had a lovely four days here at Admirals Rest. We love Deal and it’s much nicer than Cornwall!”

“Cottage had all the facilities we wished for and had a great time. would recommend a visit to Broadstairs if you wish for a sandy beach. Walmer Castle also worth a visit”.
