About us

I'm Claire and I'm super excited to have you stay in one of our cottages. A bit about me. 

Just over ten years, I moved with my young family to Deal. Everything seemed right. A super friendly, thriving small town with an incredible stretch of coastline, views of France and open countryside. I'm a keen traveller, and in the last 32 years I have experienced the hospitality of over 50 countries. In my twenties, when I was backpacking the world, I had the desire to open up a hostel in some far-flung region and then when I hit my thirties I wanted to manage a tented safari somewhere hot. Little did I know when we moved to Deal that my dream of hosting would become a reality. We opened the doors to our first holiday cottage in Deal in 2010 and since then we have welcomed over 1000 guest stays to our three rentals.

So now I'm a short term accommodation rental expert!! And I love hosting. I have a great local team who help me run the holiday cottages as I am currently in Singapore running the booking side of things and checking in on my guests remotely.

In response to the covid pandemic, we have implemented enhanced cleaning protocols and keys are in a key safe for easy, people-free access. Any contact, if required, during the stay will respect social distancing rules. 


No parties allowed. 

The holiday rentals are in quiet locations. Respect the neighbours and do not make noise late at nigh or when entering/leaving.

Leave the cottage in the clean and tidy state that it is found. 

No smoking in the property (courtyard is fine but please throw away the butt ends).

Dogs to be kept off the furniture and they are not to be left alone in the accommodation. Clean up after your dog.
